There Were Fabulous Parts... And Bleh Parts

Okay to Good

Huge Disappointment - DNF

I'll just admit right here that I didn't read the whole book. I couldn't. There was absolutely nothing new or interesting about this book that could make me continue reading it. Usually I enjoy angel books, but this one? I was bored from the very beginning but I forced myself...

Unputdownable! (For Realz, guys)

Today’s review is about a book I am super excited about for many, many reasons (if you’re bored with backstories, just scroll down). First of all, it’s Michael Grant! Super talented author of the Gone series. Second of all, it’s been so long since I’d read a thrilling, gross boy...
