Zombies + Steampunk = Epic!

Thank you to the lovely people at HarperTeen and Susan Dennard for sending me an ARC in exchange for a honest review. Something Strange And Deadly is one of those books that I instantly loved, I mean what's not to love about that book. Before starting, A Darkness Strange...

A Spectacular Sequel!

Thank you S&S for providing me with a finished copy in exchange for a honest review! Unlike most of my friends, I felt rather tepid toward The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer. Was it entertaining?...

Disappointing!

Thank you to Harlequin Teen for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review. Indelible is one strange novel with an extremely original premise and out of the ordinary mythology. Metcalf definitely explores uncharted paranormal territory in Indelible;...

Absolutely Mesmerizing!

Ready Player One has been on my "to-read" list for awhile. Why did I wait so long to read this book? I'm totally convinced that Ernest Cline wrote Ready Player One for me specifically because it had everything I love in a book. Basically Ready Player One was...

Absolutely Stunning!

Asunder was simply breathtaking. By the time I reached the final page I was immediately craving the sequel. Asunder took everything I loved about Incarnate and fixed everything that didn't work in Incarnate to create a novel of epic proportions. Asunder is one of the few sequels that outshine their...

A Decent Read!

The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer is one of those books that you either love or hate it. A bunch of reviewers I trust have given this book 1 star, while other reviewers I trust have given this book 5 stars. Mara Dyer is definitely an odd book and I definitely...

Heartbreaking & Emotional!

Charm & Strange is this mysterious enigma where everything slowly, and brilliantly falls into place. I couldn't stop reading Charm & Strange at all and I actually read it in one sitting! I kept telling myself that I had to go to sleep but I just couldn't stop...

Wow!

The 5th Wave was easily one of most anticipated books of 2013. Penguin seriously caught my interest with their insanely fantastic advertising campaign for this book. After several Goodreads members compared this to The Hunger Games, I knew I had to read this. I was going to go to...

Extremely Disappointing!

I have absolutely zero self control when it comes to dystopian books. I just have this urge to read any dystopian book I can get my hands on and often I end up extremely disappointed. So many...

An Unique Debut!

It's extremely hard to review Arclight because it's such a strange novel. I don't want to give anything away but at the same time I want to express how much I enjoyed this book. I apologize if there's an abundance of gushing and fanboying....
