So much potential...

FROSTBLOOD was a fantasy story based around two elemental races, fire and ice, and the king that would crush the other. The characters were interesting, the story endearing, and the plot engaging. Fantasy readers will enjoy the battle of good against evil and the intriguing world, but may have some...

A great fairy tale with lots of twists!

4.5 stars I love fairy tales. I love them as originals and retellings in just about every setting, as long as they're written well, of course. I fell in love with Enchanted, the first book in this series, last year. I was definitely ready to hang out...

A fun spy read!

Original review was posted on Tressa's Wishful Endings. This was such a fun book! I had read somewhere that if you liked Ally Carter then you would like this - both books have spies and characters that are high school age. I just noticed that the covers...

An enjoyable contemporary!

4.5 stars Original review: http://tressaswishfulendings.blogspot.com/2013/05/review-going-vintage.html I enjoyed reading this so much! Why? Well, the characters were fun and, I felt, realistic. The whole relationship between Mallory and Jeremy I thought was pretty representative of many high school relationships, but so were the relationships she...

A little disappointing.

enjoyed the first two books in this series, so I was looking forward to reading this. I really love books with magic in them. Mo is even more embedded in her uncle's mob business and is trying to leave the Arc world alone. However, it isn't that...

Fun contemporary with a twist.

I had heard a couple of different things about this one. It was cute. It had a paranormal twist. It was fun. I began reading it not necessarily sure how the story was going to go, even though I originally thought this was just going to be a cute chick-lit....

Good sequel to Incarnate.

The whole concept and plot of this series is so very original. The premise of souls being reincarnated and then a new soul being born, which throws their whole society off, especially as those in the society have each lived hundreds of lives is very different from anything I've read...

Good ending to the series.

What a nail-biting ending to this series! I would say that this was probably the most sci-fi book of the series. They have landed on the planet that is supposed to be their home and there are so many things they don't know and are faced with. Amy also releases...

Wanted more, but still a good read.

This is a little bit of a hard review for me to write. This was an enjoyable read, but I didn't love it and I really was hoping that I would. I think part of it is that I wanted more depth to Lucy's character - for her to feel...

Loved this final book in the series!

Amazing! I liked Clare's other series, The Immortal Instruments, but this series I love much, much more! I'm hoping that it will also be put into film, if The Immortal Instruments movies turn out to be successful. Clockwork Princess was just a great ending to the series, even though I...

A very hilariously fun read!

What an outrageously ridiculous, hilarious, and sweet read! I loved it! I didn't realize, for some reason, that this was a steampunk novel. Even more so, I didn't realize it was also paranormal. What a pleasant surprise! I've only read a few of those so I can't say how this...

Very fun retelling of The Tempest.

Really a 3.5 for me. I haven't actually read The Tempest, so I can't compare its story line to this one. I can say that this was a very fun read! I was cracking up quite a bit. The authors have a great writing style. ...
