A Perfect Literary Match

I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. Usually I don't really go for the lovey-dovey centered stories, but this book made me realize that I do appreciate a well-written romance, which is what this book incorporated really well. Like...

Shadow Falls Is The Place To Be

This book was very charming. I knew as soon as I read the description that this book was for me. I mean, come on, supernatural creatures going to a camp together, heck yes! I really enjoyed the characters. Kylie was fun to read about, even though sometimes...

Ever-Amazing

So unbelievably awesome! I had high expectations for this book after reading everyone's stellar reviews, and it lived up to all of them! First of all, the story was absolutely genius. This was a very unique retelling of the Persephone myth. The mythology was written so well;...

Mythology Love!

Amazing end to this series! This was probably my favorite book in the series. I said it once and I'll say it again: Rick Riordan is a genius. I love that he wrote these books as recordings he transcribed. It was such an original idea. Carter and...

This Is How I Like My Dystopian!

I finally see what all the hype for this book is about! I feel like everybody has already read this but me, and I don't know why I waited so long. Divergent was an amazing novel. It was so easy to get caught up in Tris's world....

A Smart Paranormal Tale

This was a great story. Reading the description, I didn't know what to expect. What I got was a compelling and beautifully told paranormal mystery. The town of Gatlin was very well-written. I could picture this small town with its variety of characters and very interesting history,...

Dystopia + Love Issues + Awesome Writing = Great Book

This was a great sequel to Delirium. I really enjoyed how the story flipped back and forth between 2 different times after the events of Delirium took place: "Now" and "Then". It kept the pace going and ensured something exciting was always happening. I also liked how...

A Unique and Beautiful Dystopian Tale

WOW. Lauren Oliver just blew my mind. I knew I would like this book, but other than that, I didn't know what to expect. This was very subtle and, at some points, a little slow. I didn't truly realize how extraordinary and unique this was until the end. As I...

Fantastic

Amazingly, awesomely, astoundingly fantastic! This was so fun and easy to read. The setting, the characters, the story, the sharp dialogue, everything was so good! I want to move to the town of Croak. With its morbid shop names and eccentric townspeople, it provided the perfect setting...
