Good. Lord. You have no idea how glad I am to finally be done with  this book. So many times I thought about giving up and parting ways, but by some sick and twisted compulsion I had to finish it. I have so many complaints about this book that I kinda don’t even want to do this review.   I hated Theia. With the fire of a thousand suns. I’m talking hate like, if-I-ever-met-you-I’d-stab-you-in-the-eye-with-a-rusty-fork hate. She was a boring person […]

I kept waiting for this story to grab hold of me and pull me under (tee hee). Sadly, it never did. Not to say I didn’t like it, because it was still pretty good…but I found myself getting bored frequently. It was a refreshing change to be told in the POV of a male protag. My comfort zone really lies with female lead roles, so this story broke that mold for me. I do believe the only other male POV’s I’ve read are […]

I had mixed feelings about this book. I’m a tomboy, so girls acting too much like the epitome of a girl irritates me. While I thought the reason for Natalie becoming ‘Nat’ for a week was rather silly (why do so many girls think that getting boys to like them is the only thing that matters in life?!), I do like the idea of it. I haven’t seen She’s the Man (I don’t like Amanda Bynes), but there’s a manga […]
