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 – […]

Review: Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

Review: Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

What is it with cheesy romances lately? Ugh. Honestly, this book could have easily been a 4 or 5 star if the instaluv hadn’t ruined it for me. I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first, because the premise for this one was AWESOME. First of all, before I even met Dante I was bracing myself for a cliche romance. Eleanor was talking about him and saying how he was devastatingly gorgeous, keeps to himself, and everyone […]

Review: Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Review: Fever by Lauren DeStefano

While this one didn’t quite wow me, it was still a good read. Rhine and Gabriel have escaped out of the frying pan and right into the fire. The world isn’t quite what Rhine was expecting. While I liked her in Wither, Rhine sort of annoyed me in this one. When she was at the mansion, she was desperate to escape, yet when she finally does, she continues to dwell on her life there. Um, hello, you got what you […]

Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

I was afraid to finish this one because of everyone ranting and raving about the ending. Truthfully, I wasn’t all that surprised because I was waiting for it to happen. I refused to believe otherwise. Although, I am a little irritated that I have to wait a year for the next one. Lena is in for it in book 3!! The storytelling was great (of course), switching back and forth between Now and Then. I liked that they were broken […]
