DNF Review: The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

DNF Review: The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

I had heard good things about this book, so I bought it. I am now regretting that decision. I made it through 200 pages, more than halfway…and was absolutely bored to death. Everyone talks about the fey being real, but you don’t really see many glimpses of them. There was little to no plot in my opinion and the story was not convincing. The characters didn’t have any personality. There was little to no action. I would have liked to […]

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Oh. My. God. When this book first started, I loathed Sam and her friends. They were everything I hate in girls – snobby, preppy, shallow. Cheating on tests and copying homework. Making fun of everyone they consider less fortunate. Flirting with teachers (gag). I was disgusted by how Sam and her friends treated other people. And I found it irritating how focused on sex they were, like it was the most important thing in a relationship, or something to gain […]

Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

When Mara’s friends die in an accident, she moves to Florida. I thought that was appropriate, considering I’m in Florida right now on vacation. Anyway, this book was pretty uneventful for the first 200 pages. A few PTSD hallucinations in the form of creepy dead people sightings here and there to keep you intrigued, that was about it. It’s mostly just Mara getting adjusted to life at a new school without her friends. After those 200 pages it picked up […]

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I heard good things about this book, so I was reeeaaaally looking forward to reading it. I was most certainly not disappointed. Karou. Her name means hope. Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic. She’s an enigma – her hair grows blue from her scalp, she collects languages, and […]
