Review: Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

Review: Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

What is it with cheesy romances lately? Ugh. Honestly, this book could have easily been a 4 or 5 star if the instaluv hadn’t ruined it for me. I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first, because the premise for this one was AWESOME. First of all, before I even met Dante I was bracing myself for a cliche romance. Eleanor was talking about him and saying how he was devastatingly gorgeous, keeps to himself, and everyone […]

Review: Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Review: Fever by Lauren DeStefano

While this one didn’t quite wow me, it was still a good read. Rhine and Gabriel have escaped out of the frying pan and right into the fire. The world isn’t quite what Rhine was expecting. While I liked her in Wither, Rhine sort of annoyed me in this one. When she was at the mansion, she was desperate to escape, yet when she finally does, she continues to dwell on her life there. Um, hello, you got what you […]

Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

I was afraid to finish this one because of everyone ranting and raving about the ending. Truthfully, I wasn’t all that surprised because I was waiting for it to happen. I refused to believe otherwise. Although, I am a little irritated that I have to wait a year for the next one. Lena is in for it in book 3!! The storytelling was great (of course), switching back and forth between Now and Then. I liked that they were broken […]

Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

A millions suns stretch out beyond me, their light piercing the darkness. I feel so insignificant, a tiny speck surrounded by a million stars. A million suns. This book was so intense!! Everything starts falling apart, people are dying, and the ship is one step short of a full out mutiny. Just when you think nothing else could go wrong, something does, again and again. I loved the clues that Amy had to follow! It made me eager to try and […]

DNF Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

DNF Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

I may get flogged for this…but I couldn’t even bear to finish this one. There was so much hype and sooo many people marked this as 4 or 5 stars – which, frankly, I can’t see why – but it just was not for me. I knew going in that it was historical fiction, but decided to give it a try anyway (even though I hate anything historical), because it had such great reviews and ratings. But, after about 200 pages, […]
