Slow and kind of boring

Why did this book remind me of Cracked and Winter Girls? Six girls in a… what do you call this place since “It's not a hospital, a spa, or an institution. That's what they told me--that's what the brochures promised.”? Anyway, six girls are in this place because they have...

Wonderful

Templeman’s The little woods is slow in action but lovely to read. I mean, it is cataloged as a thriller but there is more of Cally going on that the actual mystery. However, the suspense was good enough to keep me reading every single page until the end (because you...

Needs more background info

A few popular kids in a rich high school disappeared. Is somebody out there set to make the rich and beautiful “pay”? That sound like a very pretty interesting mystery to me. And it was. Then why the 2-stars? Well, because of the endless chit-chat that was...

Heavy read

Meet Hazel, diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 12 and ready to die. While reading the beginning of the book I felt a “click” with the story that ended when Hazel met Gus at Cancer Support Group (apparently people who suffer the cancer have a massive vocabulary, especially teenagers). ...

So so book

But, do you know when love and hate collide? That is what happened to me with this book. I really liked Bram and the love/romance going on amongst the zombies themselves. And I also enjoyed the humor of the undead. My hate began, though, when different voices were introduced into...

Good!

I’d been waiting to read this book for a while and I’m glad it didn’t disappoint me. What I liked most of this book was the Dean’s sincerity. Just because the world seems to be ending people don’t need to start acting like saints (I guess I’m evil). His feelings...

Very nice

This is not a book about zombies (how they die, how they eat, how they kill, how they live, etc.), so if you are gonna read it because of that, you'll be disappointed. This book is about a girl so dead inside that she wishes to join...

Super!

At 3% I was already in love with the "razor-sharp wit" of the characters. This is the kind of language and characters that I like and, when I find them, I just don't want to the book to end. Amongst so many zombies and dystopian novel the...

Slow

s it possible not to like a book perfectly written? This book is superbly written. The prose just flows and the use language, similies, metaphors and any other figures of speech are brilliantly employed. Yet I was bored. At 16% on my Kindle I abandoned the book...
