This one just didn’t do it for me like If I Stay did. Sadly, I found myself disappointed. The characters and setting were real enough, I just couldn’t make the connection like I did in the first book. There didn’t really seem to be much happening plot-wise at all and I got bored frequently. Other than that, I don’t really know what it was. There were some things I liked, such as the lyrics at the start of a new […]

The only complaint I have about this book: It wasn’t long enough. The stories within a story were awesome and really set the scene (even though I didn’t really know it). The tale of the dragon was very witty and I really liked the Ice Flower story, but my favorite was the new take on a werewolf stemming from Alchemy. Very interesting and unique! The touch of steampunk was pretty cool too! The relationship between Rolph and Tara moved a bit […]

I must say I kinda waffled when it came to rating this one. I had a bit of a love/hate relationship going with this  book, alternating between being intrigued and bored out of my freakin’ mind. My attention span wandered and I couldn’t connect to the characters at all, which really dragged the story down for me. A few times I considered giving up, but I’m glad I didn’t. The last 20% or so made up for the rest. When […]

What a delicious sci-fi/fantasy with a dash of dystopian and a pinch of murder mystery!! I loved this one from start to finish. The intro was heart-wrenching for me, because I can’t imagine ever having to leave my parents. Or having to watch them go through with the horrible experience of the freezing. Or waking up without them. I really felt for Amy on that part. The world inside the Godspeed was so real and convincing, I was totally captivated. […]

I gave this book 2 stars (it was ok) even though it wasn’t ok for me because I didn’t really like it at all. But there wasn’t anything fundamentally wrong with it except for the simple fact that it wasn’t for me. There was pretty much nothing happening for the first 3/4 of the book except a bunch of music jargon – all stuff about bands/singers I either a) don’t like, b) don’t give an ass rat’s about, or c) […]
