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. […]

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 […]

I was truly inhuman. Humans were prey. I craved their blood like the worst addict on the street. They were sheep, cattle, and I was the wolf, stalking them through the night. I had become a monster. Oh jeez, where do I begin? Let me just say that I’d probably adore anything Julie writes. But in the sea of other vampire books, this one was in a league of its own. She stuck to the typical myths of vampires and […]

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 […]

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 […]
