Wonderful Follow Up to Touch of Power

Steph’s Review: Maria...Maria...this could’ve been so much better. I fell absolutely in love with the Healer world after book 1, Touch of Power. The characters were amazing, the plot was stunning, the romance was smoky. Perfect! I just have to say that I love...

A Must Read! Lu's World is Absolutely Engrossing

Steph’s Thoughts: Legend is a somewhat typical, cliche dystopian novel, but somehow Marie Lu was able to get it across in a way that just makes it deserve every one of these 5 stars! Usually I’m not a fan of cliche stories, but I found Legend...

Great Fantasy, An Anytime Read

Dani’s Review: Wondrous strange. I love the title of this book, which also happens to be the title of the trilogy. Can you think of anything that is such a mix of wonder and strangeness that the two components cannot be distinguished? In this book, both...

Holy Crap, The Best Bloodlines Book So Far.

Steph’s Review: The Indigo Spell has to be the hottest, most searing YA book Richelle Mead has ever written, and here I thought that was impossible after all the Rose and Dimitri awesomeness. Oh my goodness, just let me marry Adrian Ivashkov right this instant....

Thrilling to the Bone, One of the best Dystopia's I've ever read.

Steph’s Review: *Spoilers for Legend. Do not read if you haven’t read the first book yet.* Holy. Crap. Pure gold here. Prodigy was an AMAZING follow up to Legend, and it really exceeded my expectations for it. Legend was...

Rossi Writes Like a Pro! Loved every moment.

Steph’s Review: After I finished Under the Never Sky, the first thing I thought was “Is Veronica Rossi really a debut author?”. This book is just so refined and well-written that I could not believe this was her first published novel, because her story is told like a complete...

Great Debut Novel, The Action is Hooking!

Steph’s Review: *minor spoilers* I had a lot of hesitation when it came to starting this book. If you noticed, this was on my to-read/currently widget for about a month before I actually got around to reading it. I’ve heard great things about Touch, but I’ve also heard...

Tantalizing Ending to The Infernal Devices!

Dani’s Review: Clockwork Princess has officially become my favorite YA book. I have read all of Cassandra Clare’s books released to date, and Clockwork Princess is the best by far. Ms. Clare’s vivid descriptions of the setting and the characters, careful planned plot twists, and heart wrenching romance...

Mind. Blown. Pure Awesomeness.

Steph’s Review: *DO NOT read this review if you haven’t read Deity yet. It is spoilerific for the other books prior to this one. I also strongly suggest you read Elixir (Aiden POV novella between Deity and Apollyon) before Apollyon. It’s technically isn’t a “mandatory” read, but...

Unique Addition to the Dystopia Genre!

Steph’s Review: Okay, so I have a confession to make. You know how Requiem, book 3 of this series is already out? It’s okay if you didn’t. Let’s just say I completely forgot about this series until one of my friends showed up at school with Requiem in...

Realistic Perfection. This will have you turn into a sobbing ball.

Steph’s Review: Words cannot describe how much I loved this book. I have never cried so much in a long time, and nothing is even close to how heart-wrenching this book is. It is just Flat. Out. Amazing. As my friend Angie would describe it, it was just...beautiful....

Best JLA New Adult Yet, Beautiful and Hot All At Once

Steph and Dani’s Review: I was debating whether or not I should put up a review for this for a while, because it is NA, and Dani and I have a YA blog. Well, I loved this book so much that now I don’t care if...

Amazing and Chilling, The Eternity Cure has everything.

Dani’s Review: As usual, Julie has never ceased to amaze me. I have loved every single thing she has written. I fell head over heels in love with her Iron Fey series, and her Blood of Eden has earned my eternal devotion as well. The Eternity...

Fantastic Twist onto Cinderella!

Steph's Review: Cinder is a wonderful read that follows retelling pattern of the fairy tale, Cinderella (hence Cinder). We get a robotic twist in this one, where our protagonist, Cinder, is a cyborg. Caught in a terrible fire as a child, Cinder was injured so horribly to...

Does not disappoint, though is an unsatisfying conclusion to a wonderful series.

Steph's Review: It may be a bad thing that I'm writing this review before I review Pandemonium, but trust me, I have A LOT more to say about Requiem. Warning: There will be rants, annoyance, change of hearts, etc. After I finished Pandemonium, I kind of had the...
