Review: Wrecked by Anna Davies

Review: Wrecked by Anna Davies

Let me just say right now that I didn’t read the whole thing (made it to page 169, little more than halfway), but this still isn’t totally a DNF for me because I skimmed the last half and read the ending. So I can, in all fairness, give it a one starfish rating. I do not want to hear even ONE more person compare this book to The Little Mermaid. The only thing remotely similar was that the mermaid (in […]

Review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

WOWZA. What a stunning, glorious, heart-breaking end to a fantabulous series! Rachel Hawkins really knows how to bring it! From the first page to the very last, I loved every minute and didn’t want to put it down. I do believe Sophie is one of my favorite female leads. I LOVE THIS GIRL. She’s strong and witty and she jokes at the worst moments possible to cover up any weaknesses she feels.  If she were a real person, we’d be biffles! […]

Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

**CAUTION: Possible spoilers for Hex Hall if you have not read it!!** Holy hell weasel, this book was just as good (if not better) than Hex Hall!! Hawkins really brings it in the second installment with even more twists, danger, and betrayal. There were so many things I never saw coming! Demonglass was riveting, particularly in the last quarter – and okay, I admit it, I got a little misty in certain parts. But it also made me giggle a […]

Review: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

I devoured this book within 3 hours. I think that’s a record for me! I don’t finish a book in one day very often, but it usually takes me 4 or 5 hours for a 300 page book. Hex Hall was just that amazing!   I loved Sophie. She was a very easy lead to relate to – seemingly average, not the most popular and maybe even a bit nerdy. She was strong willed and sarcastic, and even though she […]

Review: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Review: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Passion. Fate. Loyalty. Stupidity. This cover should be flagged for false advertisement. After all of the glowing reviews, I’m left to wonder….WHY DIDN’T I GET THE COPY THEY READ?! Ha ha, very funny, now where’s the REAL Tiger’s Curse?? The one that everybody LOVED because it was such an awesomely awesometastic book of awesome???? Guess the joke’s on me… Alright, where to start? First of all, the writing. GOOD LORD. Talk about sophomoric. I dealt with it for the first […]

Review: Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday

Review: Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday

What a quick and fun read! I devoured this one in a single sitting. It kept me guessing – I just wanted to finish it as soon as possible to find out who the heck the killer was!   Hartley had a witty voice and I enjoyed reading her sarcasm. I found myself smiling or giggling to myself regularly at the snarky and creative things she said. I loved her journey through solving the clues – the trouble she gets into […]
