For first impressions, I thought that this book was going to be darker than it actually was. I thought that the mistakes that Monroe and Nathan were realistic and felt that it could happen to anybody. Also I like that we almost immediately know what Nathan's secret is but Monroe's...

This last book in the series was a good book to finish it. I was surprised at where the plot went and the book kept me guessing. I liked the action and the larger presence the Inviernos had in this book and the additon of a few key characters. The...

Loved It

I actually really loved this book. It was a great standalone read and I really enjoyed reading it. First off, I loved the main character Victoria Darling. I like how she stood for what she believed in, especially towards the end of the novel. I think...

First, let me say that this book had great world building. I could definitely tell that Victoria Schwab put a lot of thought into how the Archive worked and the rules of the Archive. I loved reading about the different parts of the Archive and how it worked. That was...

For a first book, I think this was pretty good. I think the idea of a reformed Bill lof Rights was a good one and I think the way Kristin Simmons tackled the idea was good. I really liked Ember, the main character. She seemed like...

So this was an interesting read. I really like the cover and the synopsis is what drew me into reading this book. But I was kind of disappointed with some things. First off, this book is insta-lovey. Emerys sees Richard sleeping and then immediately likes him. I...

First off, the dual points of view is something I absolutely love. If you've read previous reviews, you probably know I like a few different points of view. So having the 2 POVs is something I loved. I loved being able to see both sides, in this case Tris and...

So I liked this book although the idea of the soul being reincarnated, I've read before. It was an interesting book although I thought it mirrored the book Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey but in that book, the main character is helping ghosts not fighting demons. If it had been...

Insanity by Susan Vaught

What I Liked *the action - throughout this whole novel and in the different povs, there is so much action. In every character's pov, they must fight a villian and I liked that there was so much action. Without it, I don't think the book would have been very...
