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 […]

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 […]
