Mini Review: Beauty in the Beast by Christine Danse

Mini Review: Beauty in the Beast by Christine Danse

The only complaint I have about this book: It wasn’t long enough. The stories within a story were awesome and really set the scene (even though I didn’t really know it). The tale of the dragon was very witty and I really liked the Ice Flower story, but my favorite was the new take on a werewolf stemming from Alchemy. Very interesting and unique! The touch of steampunk was pretty cool too! The relationship between Rolph and Tara moved a bit […]

Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman

Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman

I must say I kinda waffled when it came to rating this one. I had a bit of a love/hate relationship going with this  book, alternating between being intrigued and bored out of my freakin’ mind. My attention span wandered and I couldn’t connect to the characters at all, which really dragged the story down for me. A few times I considered giving up, but I’m glad I didn’t. The last 20% or so made up for the rest. When […]

Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

What a delicious sci-fi/fantasy with a dash of dystopian and a pinch of murder mystery!! I loved this one from start to finish. The intro was heart-wrenching for me, because I can’t imagine ever having to leave my parents. Or having to watch them go through with the horrible experience of the freezing. Or waking up without them. I really felt for Amy on that part. The world inside the Godspeed was so real and convincing, I was totally captivated. […]

Review: Supergirl Mixtapes by Meagan Brothers

Review: Supergirl Mixtapes by Meagan Brothers

I gave this book 2 stars (it was ok) even though it wasn’t ok for me because I didn’t really like it at all. But there wasn’t anything fundamentally wrong with it except for the simple fact that it wasn’t for me. There was pretty much nothing happening for the first 3/4 of the book except a bunch of music jargon – all stuff about bands/singers I either a) don’t like, b) don’t give an ass rat’s about, or c) […]

Review: Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Review: Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

I had absolutely no idea that this book was in verse until I read a review for it a week or two ago, and by that time I had already requested it from the library. I’m glad I didn’t know, because I might not have read it. This was my first experience with verse and not something I would have willingly chosen. At first it was a little hard to follow the broken sentences, but when I got used to […]

Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

This story was beautiful and enchanting. I loved all the magical beings mentioned; sylphs, centaurs, trolls, and my favorite – dragons. I have always had an affinity for dragons, so that aspect alone made me like it even more. Also, I love originality and Incarnate had it in bounds. The idea of the same souls being reincarnated lifetimes over, the being known as ‘Janan’ (their God), and the unique take on sylphs and dragons. Everything about the world created was […]
