Review: Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It seems like lately I’ve been disappointed in books that everyone is raving about. I’m not saying I didn’t like this one, because I did. I just didn’t love it the way I hoped I would. Obsidian still remains my favorite Armentrout novel! I don’t really have much to say about this book, sadly. I liked the premise, I liked the characters, I just wasn’t wowed by it. Alex was a pretty cool lead, but I didn’t really feel a […]

Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Sigh. I feel like it makes me a leper for saying this, but I wasn’t impressed with this one. Let me just say right now, I absolutely LOVED Obsidian. It’s on my favorites shelf. So, I was quite dismayed when this one just didn’t cut it for me. My main issue is that I’m so ridiculously sick of “immediate connections.” There’s no such thing as love at first sight; that’s called LUST people!! Ugh. The use of the L word […]

Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Again, this is my third time through this series and I still love it just as much as I did when I read it for the first time. Although I do kinda wish I was reading it for the first time, since I already knew everything that was going to happen. I still remember my shock, though, at the announcement of the Quarter Quell. Wow! Never even saw that one coming! Collins is a brilliant writer and has a way […]

Review: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

Review: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

AHHHH!!! This book was incredible. This one is a new favorite for me! Why oh why did I wait so frickin’ long to read it?! It’s been sitting on my shelf for months…if not over a year. I was really missing out! I’m going to start with Alex. Oh, Alex! I’m totally in love with Alex! *fans self* He was amazing. A few times I kinda wanted to slap him because he acted like such a buttface, but overall he […]

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 […]
