My Zom-B Review

Darren Shan is considered a master of horror. His books are intriguing and compelling. They take you to a world full of unimaginable possibilities. This series is no different. It is about a zombie outbreak that puts its character’s lives in shambles. It is a book about the struggle with...

My Tricks Review

OMG talk about a bumpy ride on an emotional path! I felt like this book showed me places I am not sure I wanted to go, but at the same time it was exactly what I needed to read. I could not believe some of the injustices these five teens...

My Tilt Review

I love reading Ellen Hopkins’ books! They are so amazing and relatable! It allows you to take a walk in someone else’s shoes and see the way things can be in different situations. This book was no different. It follows the lives of teens who are dealing with everyday circumstances....

My Scarlet Review

The second book of the Lunar Chronicles was just as gripping and mind blowing as the first. Scarlet meet and exceeded my expectations! Not only did the book fall into place with the ending of the first, but it also introduced more lovable characters along the way. Now we are...

My Sacred Review

The story was well written, but I just could not find myself drawn into the story line. The story centers around Scarlett who has suffered a terrible loss. Her brother recently passed away from a brain aneurysm. She has emotionally detached herself from the world and struggles day to day...

My Pretties Review

This book took me by surprise! I assumed that since Tally was turned into a “pretty-head” the book would be off track and boring, but man was I wrong. Scott Westerfeld did it again! He worked just enough emotion, action, romance, and intrigue to make this second book in the...

This book was a little better for me. I felt that is was a little slow until around the ending, but it was still a really great book. A lot of the characters we met in The Cirque Du Freak reappear in this book, and we come to know how...

My The Night Circus Review

This is a book filled with magic and mystery. It was both riveting and mind blowing. The author so intricately describes the circus and the story that you feel part of the dream. The story line was enchanting and extraordinary. Mystery, suspense, romance, and tragedy all wonderfully stitched into on...

I am not really sure how to separate my thoughts on this book. I was really disappointed in how slow the story was, yet I really liked the concept of the book. I HATED his mothers personality, but I liked the fact that she was a good parent. I really...
