Perfect ending to the entire series

Can I say that I feel a little lost now that this series is finally over? And when I say lost I don’t mean that the book left me confused and with unanswered questions, I mean lost because the last page has been printed and I am left behind in...

Action Packed and entertaining

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa is what I would define as a vampire, post-apocalyptic, survival-horror. Set in a world where the human population has been decimated by a plague and the attempts of a cure. Human beings have been reduced to becoming bottom links on a food chain that...

Dislikeable characters and disappointing plot

I will be frank here and say I did not enjoy Abandon by Meg Cabot. This novel gave off the impression of being a retelling or spin on the Persephone/Hades myth (and it sort of is) but it definitely was not what I was expecting and lacked the romantic chemistry...

Predictable plot but addicting story

At the end of...

heart-wrenching and hopeful

I wasn’t too interested in Pushing the Limits, one I don’t read much contemporary fiction and two the cover kind of screams romance but I got the ARC at BEA and so much people who had read advanced copies were giving Pushing the Limits positives reviews, including one of my...

A witty and fun addition to a market already bursting with fangs

Before I even started Team Human I knew it was going to make me laugh, because it was going to make fun of the stereotypical teen vampire story lines. Story lines that I enjoy sure but also make fun of, you know what I am talking about, girl meets new...

A gripping zombie novel that reads more normal than paranormal

A story I finished mere hours after I started it; to call This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers gripping would be an understatement. The world has ended or at least it seems that way, for unknown reasons the dead have risen and they are seeking...
