Twilight Saga

I was going to give this book one star, but decided three would be more relevant. I'm not going to lie, Stephenie Meyer over analyses EVERYTHING. To the point where Bella plays with her freckle on her hand, to describing Edward's 'lavender smooth; beautiful' eyelid, to eating...

Bitter

The world ends in exactly 24:00:14:32 Well... I wasn't expecting that. I rarely read the descriptions because it's a spoiler for me. When I checked this out I was expecting something like Shatter Me. I guess it was because of the cover? The cover...

****whole review contains spoilers***** All right, all right, all right, stay on your seats please. I was excited to read the second book. I placed this book on hold and had to wait for weeks to get it. I seriously hate that I wasted my energy for...

Nothing like Alice in Wonderland

This isn't a zombie-fied Alice in Wonderland story, you have been warned. The only thing that's remotely close to Alice in Wonderland is the white rabbit cloud in the sky and the zombie-fied titled chapters (i.e. Down the Zombie Hole, Eerily Curious and Eerily Curiouser, etc., etc). I am extremely...

:(

Once upon a time, there was a girl who talked to the moon. Lola Nolan doesn't believe in fashion. She believes in costume. To her, life is too short to be the same person every day. Despite the fluffy costumes, glitter, insane colours and hot boys, I...

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

"She had been innocent once, a little girl playing with feathers on the floor of a devil's lair. She wasn't innocent now..." Don't get mad at me for giving this book two and a half stars! I really wanted to enjoy this book, you guys have no...

Ever(whack)

I enter Everneath with high expectations. I was absolutely excited to read this. Unfortunately, I was left, after reading 173 pages, being disappointed. Everneath wasn't what I expected. When I see the tags under Greek Mythology, I think Loki, Zues, Nike, etc., but all I received was a remake of...

The Spindlers

The Spindlers was OK, nothing special. I felt Lauren Oliver tried a bit too hard with creating a fantasy world with mystical creatures. I probably would have enjoyed it more if The Spindlers didn't start to bore me halfway through... and I was really looking forward to reading this ....

One boy to fool them all

I cannot tell y'all how many times I checked The False Prince out from my library only to have return it. I don't know why I decided to check it out the other day when I knew I wasn't going to read it. Plot twist: I READ IT! And, my...

Unbreak my heart

How am I supposed to start this? I just want to point out something that annoyed me before I gush and fangirl and talk about the deliciousness of this summer love novel. I get that we all get my mad. We all get angry with...

Selection? Count me in!

Not bad, not bad at all. At first, I thought I was going to be disappointed — I was prepared to be disappointed. After reading numerous reviews and seeing a lot of 1 star reviews, I wasn’t expecting it to be a decent read. So why...

Time Travelling?

I had high hopes for this book. This is a cliché, but I really wanted to enjoy Timeless, you guys don't have any idea how much I wanted to. This is my type of thing, too: To travel back in time. That's what Michele Windsor can do. But before I...

Delicious!

"I didn't do anything wrong. I swear." He grunted. "Like I've never heard that before. Funny, but I expected a little more originality from Moira's daughter." "Yeah, well, the dog ate my notebook with all my good excuses." I should have taken notes on The...
