Addictive and very unique!

I almost didn't write a review for this because I'm not sure how to put how much I loved this book into words. But I attempted anyway. I might have been a little biased about this book because of the werewolves. I have a special attachment to...

One of the best YA sci-fi's I've ever read.

I don't know if I can even begin to explain why I love this book so much. I don't care if sci-fi isn't your favorite genre to read. I don't care what your favorite genre is: this is a book I think most people will like. (Unless you have an...

One of my favorite 2012 debuts so far.

Storm isn't just about the hot boys. It's full of petty high school rumors, some evil guys, and some boys who show you that the good guys really do exist. Chris and his brothers can control the elements. And that's something no one is supposed...

Kind of what I consider a tortured contemporary.

If I think too hard about this book, my brain kind of starts to hurt. I'm not going to say that's a bad thing, because in all honesty, it isn't. But Fracture is one of those books you really have to think about before you can understand what's going on....

Tempest by Julie Cross

There's really not very much I can think to say about this that won't be spoilery. Every thought and emotion I had during this book has something to do with something huge that happens in the book. Although I can say that I'm absolutely in love with the cover. :)...

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I feel like I'm going to get shot because I didn't fall in love with this book. But you know what? Regardless of your opinion on this book, I am allowed to not like a book. So no more emails screaming at me, mmkay? Laini Taylor has...

Everyone I know loved it - except me.

Shatter Me is a highly anticipated novel, and I suppose it's with good reason. But maybe I tried too hard to love this book, just because everyone else did. My biggest problem - my only problem, really - with Shatter Me was the writing...

Remembrance by Michelle Madow

You know, I'm not even sure why I decided to read Remembrance. I knew it was about reincarnation, and to be honest, I hate the idea of reincarnation. I don't want to think about how I could have Jeffery Dahmer or Hitler in a past life o_o I've just always...

Loved it way more than I expected.

The Pledge was kind of refreshing, in a way. No love triangles, no insta-love, and no Mary-Sues. But I'll start with what I didn't like, since there's not much of it. From reading the blurb, you know that Charlie can understand every language and...

I honestly couldn't give it a rating.

WARNING: Spoilers abound. Seriously. If you haven't read The Iron Knight and you plan to, don't read this review. It will ruin the entire thing for you. I've never posted a review like this before, but this has been out for awhile, so I figure I'm relatively...

So I'm kind of in love with this book.

Every day at dawn, Kali makes a switch. Either she turns human or she turns into something else - something with a bloodlust for hunting all the things that go bump in the night. On those days, she can't feel pain, she doesn't get hungry or tired, and she heals...

I don't care what people say about Vampire Academy.

This was another one of those books I had to mull over before I could decide what to say about it. I know some people have complained about the similarities between this book and Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series. But do you want me to be honest?...

Wish it had been more original.

I don't know why I torture myself and read books when I know they have love triangles. I guess maybe I decided to read this because I heard the love triangle wasn't too bad, and in retrospect, it really wasn't. However, if Skye continues to love Devin in the next...

Stephanie Perkins is a genius.

LOLA is definitely another amazingly addictive novel by Stephanie Perkins. But If I'm honest, I didn't like it as much as I liked Anna and the French Kiss. I think it's because I read ANNA first - the writing styles between the two books are very similar, and I think...

Much more enjoyable than I was expecting.

WELL. I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would. Not because I'd heard bad reviews or anything, I just thought that it was going to be full of plot holes the size of craters. Why? I don't know. Dez is an interesting character. She's easy...
