Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

I had such high hopes for this book, but sadly I was disappointed. It’s got great reviews, too, so looks like I was the black sheep yet again *shrugs* Mostly I was bored. The mystery of not knowing why people were dying kept me going, but I found the plot and the book overall to be very dull. The prose was choppy and awkward and I had trouble getting into it. We are given ZERO description whatsoever, so I had […]

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

For being erieso short, I found this one to be rather slow. I was super bored in the beginning, waiting for something to happen. The letters don’t come until quite a long way into the book. While I did enjoy the sense of family that Lara Jean had, I found I didn’t really care about the mundane happenings in her life that took up nearly half of the novel. This is why I don’t really care to read contemp very […]

Review: Inferno by Julie Kagawa

Review: Inferno by Julie Kagawa

“The final battle is approaching. I only hope we are ready.” Oh gosh, where do I start? I always have so much trouble reviewing Julie’s books because I have to reign in my gushing enough to say more than just “I loved it!” XD But…I loved it!! There hasn’t been a Julie book that I’ve ever read that I didn’t adore to pieces. I love this series and while I’m sad to let it go, Inferno wrapped it up nicely! […]

Review: This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada

Review: This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada

The truth is that when you’re facing death, there’s no telling what you’ll do. WHY did I put this one off for so long?! Oh my lord!! I had seen it around back when it first came out, but they hype died down and I really never see it mentioned anywhere. I had a feeling I’d love it, but I put it off anyway. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, and I ended up being BLOWN AWAY! […]

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

Holy WOW, that was intense!!!! I have to admit that this one started out a bit rocky. When I first met Tuck, it seemed like his narrative was trying too hard to be a cocky teenage male. (Also, there was an unnecessary comparison of his shrunken balls to walnuts, like why??) But in the first few pages this book grabs you by the balls (see, now he’s got me talking about balls) and doesn’t let go! The monsters in this book – mourners, […]

[Horror October] Mini Review:The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

[Horror October] Mini Review:The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

Okay, I didn’t expect to enjoy this one so much! I don’t know why I put it off for so long. Mostly, the hype scared me. But it was so well deserved! I am IN LOVE with the premise of this book. I loved the idea that three women, who were drowned in the sea for being accused of witches, come back every year to seek revenge on the town that killed them. So awesome!! This book was so beautiful […]
