A MUST READ!!!

Publication: February 5, 2013 Publisher: Feiwei and Friends Source: Publisher (Thanks!) Cinder is one of those books that is so amazing and beautiful. You have to admit it, Cinder is wonderful. Marissa Meyer is clearly a gifted, talented author of Cinder and Scarlet. Great creativity...

Review: Lovetorn

Okay, let's start criticizing this book. This will be fun for me. Yes, criticizing is fun. Not criticizing paragraphs: As promised Shalini is torn from her life. She had trouble blending in with her fellow classmates. Her classmates bully her, tease her, and...

Review: Wereling (Wereling #1)

First of all, when I look at the cover of this book, I thought of the creepy boy on the cover. I thought of the moon behind him. I thought of his eyes. I thought of the full moon. But most of all? I thought of the title. ...

Review: The Elite (The Selection #2)

The Elite... *Sigh* I'll try not to say any spoilers. The only spoilers that are here is in the spoilers section down at the bottom of the review. (Love the quote "35 GIRLS CAME TO THE PALACE ONLY 6 REMAIN" on...

Review: The Drowned Cities (Ship Breaker #2)

To tell you the truth, I didn't like The Drowned Cities. I felt that was a little odd and similar to Ship Breaker. If you didn't like the first book in this series, then you won't like this number either. I hoped for a better story....

Review: Hooked (Hooked #1)

Hooked... The cover just looks wrong. So wrong. Fortunately, none of what the cover is hinting is in the book. So parents, feel no need to hide this book due to possible, possible, inappropriate, and loveful events that do not exist. The writing was...

Review: Hidden (The house of Night #10)

Hmm... No say about the cover. Just no comment. Noo... After all those books before Hidden, I was getting bored of this series. I mean, seriously, The House of Night series is just getting way too long. This is like Private by Kate Brian. Just no. ...

Review: Seizure (Virals #2)

Tory and her Virals are back. With an awesome cover and a wonderful Recap, this book kicks butts. A lot of butts. It should be on the bestsellers list. But it has some weaknesses which makes us readers take a second and third look. Maybe even more than that. ...

Review: Second Chance Summer

The cover is beautiful. The setting of the cover fits the description in Second Chance Summer. I just love the shade of orange! Second Chance Summer is even better than Amy and Rogers's Epic Detour. Yes! This piece is even better and awesomer than that one. This...

Review: Firelight (Firelight #1)

Draki is like this internal dragon which "manifest" to show its true colors. The human body changes to become dragonlike. Or an actual dragon. It's sort of weird, but you'll understand it by the second book. Hopefully. Jace is the narrator of Firelight. She is cherished by...

Review: Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3)

When I first read the synopsis, I was like OMG, Kat and Hale are going to be leaving each other!?! Then I read it again and again to make sure I have a reasonable assumption. Then I thought, no. It can't be possible because Ally Carter is writing this and...

Review: The Daughters Join the Party (The Daughters #4)

This book was a huge disappointment and a success. Why? Issue #1: I felt that Joanna Philbin was simply recycling old plots. This book just felt similar to The Daughters. Issue #2: I don't get it. The ending. So...Is there going to be another...
