My Impulse Review

Can you ever really get over pain…loss…love? Three teens have their fair share of issues, but can they find redemption in one another? I was really taken with this story. I have had experience with suicide before. A good friend of mine was the victim. I never...

My Halo Review

I fell in love with the cover , which is what drew me to the book. I had never heard of Alexandra Adornetto, but I decided to give it a try. The story line was intriguing to me. I do love a good Angel series. I just felt that I...

My Hades Review

The second book of the Halo series was much better than the first book. Beth finds herself trapped in Hell. Jake has claimed her for his bride, and things are definitely not looking up. She is wasting away in a world where everyone openly despises her. I was caught up...

My Clockwork Princess Review

WOW! I guess Cassandra was saving the best for last. This book definitely took me on an emotional roller coaster. I have had to stop a couple of times while writing this review to compose myself. The ending was bitter sweet for me, but I felt that in the light...

My Clockwork Prince Review

The first book left me with so many questions. To me, this series has gone no where. Between reading book one and two, I still have most of the same questions. There just seems to be no tie in to The Mortal Instruments other than the races and some characters....

My Clockwork Angel Review

I had such high hopes for the Infernal Devices. I guess I have myself to blame for placing it on such a high pedestal. With that said, this book did not grip me the way I had hoped. I could not connect with the story and found myself confused half...

My City of Lost Souls Review

This book left me unhinged! I felt that this was the one book in the series so far I had to push through. So why did I rate it a four star? The story line is amazing! With that being said, I cannot grasp the reason Clare would ruin this...

My Cinder Review

OMG WOW! I have seen a lot of concepts for the Cinderella story. Although most were really good, some were extremely far fetched. I was on the fence about this book when I first read the synopsis, but Marissa definitely got my attention! This book was amazing. I loved how...

My Burned Review

Ellen Hopkins has done it again! The stories that she brings to life are amazing! These are stories that we as readers can really relate to. I always find myself so engrossed in her books that I feel like I have lost a friend once they have ended. I felt...

My Birth of a Killer Review

I am kind of sad to be giving this a 3 star rating. I loved The Cirque Du Freak series! I just felt that this first book in the Saga of Larten Crepsley was kind of slow and not very eventful. I did like the fact that we get a...

My Uglies Review

This book left me speechless! I could not put it down! Westerfeld’s vision was so clear, and the story line was amazing. The concept of the book was so different from anything I have read so far. There was never a dull moment for me. I would highly recommend this...

My The Fault in Our Stars Review

This is the most brilliant and heart wrenching story I have ever read! I cannot tell you how embarrassing it is to be sitting on my couch bawling and unable to explain to my husband what exactly is wrong. I have heard so much about John Green and his writing....

My Beastly Review

Alex Flinn really brought me back to childhood with Beastly. I really enjoyed her modernized version of my Disney favorite Beauty and the Beast. It was a very captivating retelling. There is nothing I love more than a romantic happily ever after. Kyle Kingsbury had it all,...
