Review: The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams

Review: The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams

I. HATE. LOVE. TRIANGLES!!!! Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system. I was thoroughly unimpressed by this book. The plot was good, sure, but it just lacked for me. Even the ending –  with everything falling apart and the death of an important character – felt rushed. Maybe because I was skimming to get to the end and get it over with, who knows. It wasn’t a bad book necessarily, but it wasn’t memorable at all. Her prose […]

Review: Seizure by Kathy Reichs

Review: Seizure by Kathy Reichs

I have to admit, I didn’t read the synopsis before I started this. So, when the very first chapter was about pirates, I was a bit confused (albeit intrigued). My thought was, What does this have to do with a group of teenagers? But soon I found out – when Tory discovers the legend of Anne Bonny. From there on this book was a riveting mixture of adventure, danger, and excitement. I loved it!   The Virals bite off more than […]

Review: Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

Review: Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

This is another one that I didn’t really know what to think of at first. The first page instantly grabbed my attention with talk of Oberon, Titania, and Puck from A Midsummer’s Night dream. While I can’t stand the Shakespearean language (mainly because it’s way above my head, ha), I love the lore of the courts – mainly because of reading the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. So, after this first page, my expectations were set high.    Then I […]

Review: Need by Carrie Jones

Review: Need by Carrie Jones

I didn’t really know what to think of this book. It started out really slow and although I love paranormal stuff, this story didn’t seem to sell very well at first. It came off as a little cheesy and cliche in some spots, but as the story started to pick up I actually found myself enjoying it. I almost gave up a couple times, but after like page 150 or so it finally gets interesting.   In the beginning Zara […]
