Lacking

Oh boy, where do I begin? Of Triton was a mild disappointment for me. When I got my copy, I just stared at it for a minute. First of all, the cover is beautiful, even if I didn't quite think it fit the book. Maybe it...

You Either Love Or Hate It

Everyone was so freaking in love with The Night Circus, I figured there would be no way I could be any different. And I was...wrong. When I finished The Night Circus, I felt like it was lacking something. Maybe more depth, maybe a more exciting plot....

Another WIN

What Would You Do

Just Like Fate discusses one of my favorite topics: can one moment really change your life? And maybe it can, or maybe it can't. But, in this book that's what the reader looks into. It took me a while to get really into this book. Death and dying...

WHAT did I just read?

"I have no idea what I just read," seems to be the consensus on Precious Blood. But why? The plot was kind of messed up. Thank God no one knew I was reading this. Explaining it would have been a nightmare. "Well, there are...

Reads Like A Repeat of Twilight

Carrier of The Mark could have been so much better if there was: -NO INSTA-LOVE. It's always kind of difficult to tell how much time is moving by in a book, but I'm pretty confident that the main characters, Megan and Adam, weren't together for more than a month,...

The Forsaken

After reading the synopsis, I felt ready to five in to a great dystopian novel. The only problem, is this book is not that novel. The Forsaken takes place many years from now after the world has reached a point of chaos in which many countries...

Not My Favorite

It's hard to say what I was expecting from the second book in the Mortal Instrument Series, but it wasn't this. City of Ashes seemed less exciting, less important, less thrilling, etc. City of Ashes was still a good read, but I didn't "really like it," just: liked it, even...

Shadow and Bone: WOW

Wow. That's my initial reaction after completing this novel. Like Veronica Roth says, Shadow and Bone is "unlike anything I've ever read." I don't know why, but I couldn't stop myself from crying, shouting in joy, and screaming at the author. I loved the characters, the adventure,...
