Does not live up to the hype.

I was one of the few people who was not completely spellbound by Delirium. I had heard from many people that Pandemonium was very different from Delirium, so I thought that might be a good thing. I might like book two better. And I did like the second installment...

The end to an amazing trilogy...

**Don’t worry, this review is spoiler free. I’m basically stating my thoughts on the overall story and message of the series.** Here we are. We’ve reached the end. The end of a series is always a somber occasion, but more so when it’s a series like Divergent....

Wonderfully Creepy Series

It’s been a while since I’ve had a book that’s kept me up reading until midnight. I knew when putting together my pile or books for October that As Dead As It Gets would be perfect for the spooky Halloween ambiance. I loved the first book, Bad Girls Don’t Die,...

Perfect for Supernatural fans

I was quite excited to get a copy of Kami Garcia’s new book. I really like the Caster Chronicles and Beautiful Creatures was one of the first books I read when I just got into the YA universe. I was really interested to see how Kami’s voice differed from that...

Even better than book 1!

The Mara Dyer books are the kind that you can't quite explain to others without inadvertently spoiling important plot points. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was an unexpected discovery for me a year or so ago. That being said, I did not know quite what to expect going into book...

Beautiful Coming of Age

This has been a book that was on my list since it came out. I was very much intrigued by the premise--just the idea of a "de-gaying camp" is absolutely absurd, but the horrible fact is that those actually exist. I could not quite wrap my head around that. That...

Paradox ARC Review

The premise sounded really interesting. I love science fiction so I was a bit excited! But it didn't really turn out to be what I thought it was going to be. I kept zoning out while reading and didn't really care that much about the characters. It moved really quickly....

Why didn't I read this sooner?

Another one of those books that is causing me to ask myself, why did I take so long to read this?! It was always one of those "maybe" books for me since it came out, and I just happened to find it on sale and grabbed a copy. What I...

Fresh take on mythology

Antigoddess was a bit of a wildcard pick for me. I really knew nothing about the story, but I've really been wanting to read Kendare Blake's other novels, Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares. I've heard so many wonderful things about her writing so I jumped on the...

If I were a book...

If I had to choose one book to represent who I am, it would be Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Old crumbling mansions by the seaside, an Ouija board scene, classic movie references--and I felt so close to the main character. She was seriously just a blonde...

Amazing!

It's not often that I come across a series whose installments I can read back to back or in close proximity to one another. I know several people who have to exist in a certain story or genre for a while, but is I do that I get burnt out....
