Good. Lord. You have no idea how glad I am to finally be done with  this book. So many times I thought about giving up and parting ways, but by some sick and twisted compulsion I had to finish it. I have so many complaints about this book that I kinda don’t even want to do this review.   I hated Theia. With the fire of a thousand suns. I’m talking hate like, if-I-ever-met-you-I’d-stab-you-in-the-eye-with-a-rusty-fork hate. She was a boring person […]

I kept waiting for this story to grab hold of me and pull me under (tee hee). Sadly, it never did. Not to say I didn’t like it, because it was still pretty good…but I found myself getting bored frequently. It was a refreshing change to be told in the POV of a male protag. My comfort zone really lies with female lead roles, so this story broke that mold for me. I do believe the only other male POV’s I’ve read are […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
