Review: The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

Review: The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

First of all, this situation would be AWFUL. I’m a bit of a piglet and I can’t imagine going more than a day without eating. (or going without my Dew, yes yes roll your eyes) The situation of this story alone was enough to make it riveting. It was a very quick read – I finished it in a couple of hours. So why only 2.5 stars? Because certain aspects were a little far-fetched and unrealistic for me to swallow. […]

Review: Frost Moon by Anthony Francis

Review: Frost Moon by Anthony Francis

In the first 80 pages or so, I was thinking about putting this one down. Boy, am I glad I didn’t! In the beginning, I really didn’t care for it because of several reasons: 1) The cursing. The F word was in almost every other sentence. I have absolutely no problem with a little foul language, but I feel it was a bit excessive at times. 2) It seemed a bit like a male’s wet dream complete with lesbian bondage […]

Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

I was truly inhuman. Humans were prey. I craved their blood like the worst addict on the street. They were sheep, cattle, and I was the wolf, stalking them through the night. I had become a monster. Oh jeez, where do I begin? Let me just say that I’d probably adore anything Julie writes. But in the sea of other vampire books, this one was in a league of its own. She stuck to the typical myths of vampires and […]

Review: Croak by Gina Damico

Review: Croak by Gina Damico

How did I feel about this book? Meh. That about covers it. I couldn’t connect with Lex at all, and I didn’t particularly like her. It seemed like Gina was going for kick-ass heroine, but it didn’t work for Lex. She was unnecessarily violent to the point of being a bully. I didn’t find her ‘cool’ at all, I just felt like she tried to hard. Aside from being a bully, she was childish and selfish. While I did like […]

Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This was the third time I’ve read this one, and it’s still just as amazing as the first time. I wanted everything fresh in my mind but I wanted to read it before rather than after simply because I don’t want the movie perspective to taint my imagination of the book. Although, after watching 2 trailers and a teaser it sorta already did. I found myself picturing Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson many times over. It’s such an easy read […]

Review: Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

Review: Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

Welcome Caller was bittersweet and touched on some difficult subjects like drug addiction, Parkinson’s, and change, but still managed to stay light and fun. The characters were wonderfully flawed and different in their  own way. I hated Chloe at times, but she grew on me towards the end. She was self-centered and a bit vain, but her wit charmed me and made me giggle quite a few times. In the beginning I kind of just wanted to slap her – […]
