A Disappointment

Let's talk about books that disappoint you. I mean, this sounds a lot like a YA Downton Abbey should! It's super promising in its description! But no. There's a reason Downton Abbey has already been renewed for season five. Besides just...

Disappointment

So, I read this book at the very end of 2012, which wasn't really the best timing to pick up this book, but I wanted something short I could read so my goodreads count for 2012 would be a nice round number and this was the first book I grabbed....

Mindblowingly Fantastic

This...is a really hard review to write. I utterly adore this series. It's kind of seeped into my life, really. In the past couple of years since I began this trilogy, I've wanted to wallpaper my room with the covers. I've named my Kindle after the main...

A Wonderful Twist

I've been waiting forever to share my thoughts on this one, guys. I read it back in January because...how could I not? It's a Pride and Prejudice retelling...WITH SPIES. (Side Note: I was going through super early posts yesterday and...I didn't like Pride and Prejudice retellings when I started blogging....

Jennifer E. Smith: A Princess of Contemporary

Long time, no review, I know. But guys, this is the kind of book I need to gush about. I NEED to talk to you guys about this book. Because it is so, so, so utterly perfect I can't NOT talk about it. This is the kind of book that...

A Sequel to Live Up To and Surpass the First!

So. Many. FEEEEEEEEEEEELS. First of all, Jodi Meadows has this fantastic way of making readers consider the morals of reincarnation. One million souls who become experts in their area of specialty vs. new souls and their new, though less experienced, ideas? It's a question you have to...

Beautifully Written and Intricate

Victoria Schwab is a woman who knows how to write a book. First of all, I have to talk about how absolutely astounding the writing is. It's beautiful and almost lyrical, very haunting. Victoria Schwab has such an incredible way with words and using them to create...

Fast-paced, Engrossing Read!

This is a quick, enticing read that I really enjoyed! I'll be honest - reading and I haven't gone great lately. I've only read 2 YA novels lately. Other than that, manuscripts and bits of manuscripts and one novella and...a lot of romance novels. YA just hasn't...

ASSASSIN NUNS

Let's continue the Year of Bad Assery with assassin nuns. Yes, you heard me right. Assassin. Nuns. Why do I have to say more? I mean, I will, but I really can't say much more as I read this book in...um...May. You can probably tell it's...

Loved It, Despite Faults

Guys, it's 2013. Which means it's time to talk about the utter badassery of 2013 books and there's not really a better way to start than with Prophecy. Kira is, seriously, a bad ass. She doesn't let other people's feelings and opinions...

Some Good, Some Bad

I only had a vague idea of what this book was about and I wanted it that way. This book is set in a time period and a place that I don't normally read, so I wanted to try it out. I'm pretty glad I did. Cecily...

As Good as the First

As I mentioned when I reviewed Dearly, Departed, Lia Habel is a master at the multiple perspectives. I just...so much love for that alone. Then there's the fact that there's never a dull moment in any of Lia's novels. Always action and adventure and some new dangerous...

A Unique Retelling

This book was nothing like I expected, but I still enjoyed it. Jackson Pearce wrote two really interesting main characters. Both Lo and Celia are nothing like other characters I've read. Lo was always a back and forth, sometimes Lo and sometimes her former self. Celia is...

A Bit Too Shallow

This book was a super light, fun read that was a bit too shallow for me. So, I kinda liked Max? I have mixed feelings on her, which really could be a good thing. Very real to life, you know? She made stupid decisions. She had a...

One of My Favorites This Year

Where do I even begin with this book? Rachel is basically the strongest heroine ever in so many ways. She overcomes more obstacles than I could ever imagine during the course of the novel. When Defiance starts, she's already proved she's pretty strong and loyal and brave....
