Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Wow. This book was incredible! I love the mind-bending concept of time traveling and I’d never read a book about it before. It’s just so cool, even though if I think too much into the details it’s a bit hard to wrap my head around – like what traveling to the past and making any changes would do to the future. And paradoxes. Whaa – it’s like the dream within a dream within a dream stuff from Inception. Makes my […]

Review: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Review: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

This was my first foray into the world of horror books. And a good one it was! The first thing I loved about this book? The writing is RED. Which happens to be my favorite color, so bonus points there. The second thing (more bonus points), Blake used the word kerfuffle. Which happens to be my favorite word! She also used clusterfuck, which is another awesome, giggle-enticing word. Yay!   Anyway, off to the story. I don’t get scared watching […]

Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Rossi did not disappoint in her debut novel. Under the Never Sky was a beautiful, enthralling, and unique story and I ate it up! Although, I must say I started out extremely confused. You’re pretty much dumped into this advanced future world with hardly any explanation and terms are thrown at you – pod, Reverie, Bliss, Scire, Aether, Smarteye – it was a little overwhelming at first. But as the book went along, I picked up (slowly) on what it all […]

Review: Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

Review: Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

I had a lot of mixed feelings about this book. While there were parts I liked, there were also parts I didn’t. I loved that it started right off the bat with Lenzi hearing voices. It grabbed me right away and held my attention. What I didn’t enjoy was the love triangle. GROAN. I knew when I bought it that there was going to be one, but was hoping that the awesome story line would drown it out. Thankfully, it […]

Review: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Review: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

I actually started this book last year and the timing was just terrible so I only made it about 80 pages in. Despite that, I was sure I was really going to love this book and there was a lot of hype about it…so I ended up being a bit disappointed. It was still good and went pretty fast, but it just didn’t cut it for me.   In the beginning I was really confused about all the terminology and hierarchies. […]

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Just so you know, I never really liked alien stories. I do now. Let me start by telling a story (it’s kind of long, I apologize in advance). I have wanted this book sooo incredibly bad since it came out. Aliens don’t really appeal to me, but I did like Smallville (I was an avid watcher for the first couple seasons) and even though I only saw episode 1 of Roswell, I liked it too. This book sounded a bit […]
