Not so impressed

First things first: THE COVER CHANGE!! why do authors change the cover in the very last book of a series? WHY? It makes me not want to display the books on my shelves and that makes me feel guilty about the books feeling left out. Gaaaaah! image...

So many people hate this book..!

Sometimes freedom has a way of destroying things.. At first, i was really angry at what had happened to Tally. I felt like I'd lost the person I had spent so much time getting to know but gradually, throughout the book i began accepting that it's a...

one of my favorite series of all time

I know a lot of people complain that this book is worse than "Uglies" but I actually thought it was better. Something about Tally finding her way out of pretty haze makes your heart go out to her, doesn't it? Also, Zane...

Mixed Feelings

I picked up Delirium even though the synopsis wasn't particularly appealing to me. I got the impression that it was more of a love story than anything else really. When you pick up a first book in a trilogy, you need to understand that the characters you...

Downhill

I want to say I hated this but it wasn't all bad. What I hated most though was Cabel and Janie's relationship. Just downright cheesy and twilight-ish. I don't even know why I read this one expect I really wanted to know what happens..So I'm resisting the temptation...

Depressing but really good

How can you write a novel about recovering from mental illness and a few weeks later kill yourself? It's very discouraging. That being said, this was probably one of the most beautifully written and constructed novels I've ever read. Sylvia Plath has the strangest mixture of funny/heartbreaking...

What a disappointment!

I'm a sucker for dragons, I have to admit. The very idea of them is irresistible to me, so my opinion should have been partial towards this book by default. My main problem with this book is that it's almost exactly like the Lord of the Rings....

Changed my minds about HG Wells

My first encounter with H.G. Wells was not of the pleasant sort. I read or tried to read 'the invisible man". It was drawn out and really strange. And the image of Kevin Bacon kept floating disconcertingly in front of my eyes. Am I the only...

Turned me off contemporary romance forever

This was okay at first. Then it was just plain overdone. there were these moments when you could imagine a stage hand whispering "cue angst" behind the curtain. The backgrounds of the characters weren't as dramatic as the author seems to want them to sound. ...

Funny/Heartbreaking

This has been one of the most heartbreaking things I've ever read. It's truly depressing to think of people marching for freedom only to have their revolution stolen by some fundamentalist pigs! Unfortunately this hits very close to home as the situation here in Egypt bears a...

FAV

After a disappointing first 3 months of 2013, I come across this gem! I had been meaning to get this for quite a while. I read it right after another book from the 1800s, coincidentally. Up until now, I had a pre conceived notion about literature from...

WOW

We're at the cultural stage where we've stopped wanting to kill zombies and have begun wanting to love them. I can sit back and appreciate this transformation since I was too young to notice when it happened to vampires. You remember, "Dracula" and "Nosferatu" became "louis...
