Review: Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman

Review: Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman

I had mixed feelings about this book. I’m a tomboy, so girls acting too much like the epitome of a girl irritates me. While I thought the reason for Natalie becoming ‘Nat’ for a week was rather silly (why do so many girls think that getting boys to like them is the only thing that matters in life?!), I do like the idea of it. I haven’t seen She’s the Man (I don’t like Amanda Bynes), but there’s a manga […]

Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Dying is easy. Living is hard. This book didn’t waste any time getting to the point. A few pages in I was already glued to the story, hand over my mouth in horror and shock. After the accident, Mia is left with the ultimate question – live with the pain or take the easy way out in death? I loved Mia’s family and friends. Like me, Mia has an awesome family (okay, so my parents didn’t get married in leather […]

Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

A lot of times, when you see a book cover this beautiful, it’s compensating for something – as in, the lack of story in between the covers. This was not the case with Everneath. The story was just as beautiful as the cover. It broke my heart and crushed my soul. Like a grape. Okay, hold the phone, now I have to share a video… This whole clip is great, but I’m embedding it for a certain few seconds, 1:12 […]

Review: Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells

Review: Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells

Kickass heroine, check. Sexy mage, check. Cat-demon minion, check. Finding a book that’s actually worth your time, priceless. Ha, sorry couldn’t resist :) This book was a refreshing change from the last book I read (Dead Until Dark). It was fast paced and magical, and even had a little humor in it. Sabina was pretty awesome. She was tough and sarcastic and didn’t take crap from anyone – sounds like my kind of protag! I found myself picturing Michelle Rodriguez […]

Review: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Review: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Boy, do I despise getting my hopes up. There was so much hype and talk about this series that I was absolutely sure I’d like it. So, what did my dumb-ass self do? Bought the first NINE books. *bashes face into keyboard*  Aside from the obviously novice prose, there were so many things that were absolutely awful and wrong with this book that I don’t even know where to start.   Brace yourself, this is going to be long. If […]

Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Wow. This book was incredible! I love the mind-bending concept of time traveling and I’d never read a book about it before. It’s just so cool, even though if I think too much into the details it’s a bit hard to wrap my head around – like what traveling to the past and making any changes would do to the future. And paradoxes. Whaa – it’s like the dream within a dream within a dream stuff from Inception. Makes my […]
