My Soul to Take

I dove into this immediately after finishing My Soul to Take, but reading the blurb made me go “what?!” It sounds kind of cheesy, but Rachel Vincent somehow made it exciting and interesting. It was still a bit silly at times, like mega media corporations selling souls of the teens...

My Soul to Steal

After the ending of My Soul to Keep and the new information provided by Reaper, I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one. I was happy to see that Kaylee hadn’t just fallen back in Nash’s arms, and that he’s working on making things right. At least until...

If I Die

Kaylee is on the list. You know that list the Reaper’s get so they know who to collect? Yeah, that list! It looks like she’s going to be wailing for herself fairy soon. Is that even possible?! Either way, Kaylee is on a roller coaster of emotions, and I found...

Before I Wake

I was nervous and excited to pick up Before I Wake. Nervous because I wasn’t sure if this one would match the awesomeness and intensity of the previous book. Excited because, well, I love this series! I’m happy to say that this was another amazing book in the series, but...

My Soul to Keep

My Soul to Keep is much different than the previous two books. It’s darker and more serious. Of course, Kaylee’s need to save people is still going strong, but this time it’s actually people she knows. Her relationship with Nash also changes. While in the last book their hormones were...

Pushing the Limits

Pushing the Limits is one of those books that was receiving a lot of hype, and that made me a little reluctant to read it. However, I love “issue” books and I’ve really been enjoying the more mature YA books coming out, so I gave it a try. I’m really...

Temptation

I was drawn to this book because I was always fascinated by Amish culture, and the idea of a non-Amish girl and an Amish boy falling in love is absolutely amazing sounding! I love tales of forbidden romance, and Rose and Noah’s relationship is truly forbidden. I initially assumed that...

Reaper

This was a great short about our favorite reaper, Tod! I loved getting to be inside Tod’s head even if it was only for 60ish pages. We get a lot of information about the reaper business which I found really interesting. It really adds to the experience of the Soul...

My Soul to Lose

I know a lot of people said to read this after My Soul to Take, but I must read things in order if at all possible, so I read it first. And I’m glad I did! This was a great preview of the series, and it made me even more...

Darklight

It had been over a year since I read Wondrous Strange, so it did take a few chapters for me to settle into Darklight. I was actually surprised by how much I did remember from the first book, and whatever I didn’t, I was soon reminded of. Soon enough I...

I know there was a lot of drama surrounding The Selection, but I wanted to read it, so I read it. I was intrigued by the “The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor” comparisons, although the only similarity to The Hunger Games was that the people are defined by a number....
