Cute Romance

Inbetween was heartbreaking. It killed me knowing that Finn was doing everything he could to be with Emma, and yet I knew he couldn't ever have her. I'm not much of the gushy romance type, but this was beautiful. It might sound cliche, and it probably is, but when I...

This book ROCKS!

I love Julie Kagawa's writing. She's created this beautiful, chilling, and goosebump-raising world that has completely absorbed me. The fey are no longer the sweet, gently little creatures that prance around in pretty dresses and wave a magic wand that sprinkles fairy dust so you can fly... oh, no. This...

MUST READ!!!

I'm a Robin Hood junkie and Scarlet definitely quenched my thirst for a good, intense Robin Hood novel. I didn't let go of the book until I was completely done. There was just so much excitement! Curiosity was eating me up. The characters were incredibly awesome. Scar turned out...

I'd give it a hundred stars if I could!

I usually never read contemporary, so this is me going out of my comfort zone. I've seen many (many) rave reviews on this book and when Harlequin Teen sent a copy to me, I just had to give it a try. Who knew I'd fall in love with it so...

A cute fairy-tale

I didn't know Princess of the Silver Woods was actually the third book until I heard about it on another blog, which was a HUGE relief (I know that doesn't right, but just bear with me). I felt like I was missing out on something and it was starting to...

Pretty Awesome

When I first saw this book, I got the urge to read it because of both the cover and the summary. It sounded intriguing and I was in the mood for an exciting dystopian book. I wasn't disappointed at all. The Forsaken is a mixture of Lord of...

Cute.

Okay, so this probably sounds like any other guardian angel book full of gooey romance and annoying heroines, but if you read the synopsis then you'll know that this isn't one of those books at all. It's not a lie either. Trust me on this one. The book is about...

Mind. Blown.

Mind. Blown. I just summed up my reaction in two words. There's just so much going on, so much new drama and mystery that I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. One minute, Moira has me dancing with glee and then before I know it, something...

Amazing!

Exhilarating. That's the perfect word for Blood Red Road. It's impossible to put down and just as hard to forget. It's a powerful mix of emotion and adventure that left me absolutely speechless. What Saba went through to get her brother back... wow. She went through Hell and back, scarred...

A must read for Bronte fans!

I'm a big fan of Emily Bronte's writing, her words simply leave me speechless. And now, I'm a fan of Aviva Orr. She's inherited that beautiful, romantic yet tragic, writing style that the Bronte sisters have given us. The Mist on Bronte Moor is unforgettable. The story is...
