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 […]

What is it with cheesy romances lately? Ugh. Honestly, this book could have easily been a 4 or 5 star if the instaluv hadn’t ruined it for me. I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first, because the premise for this one was AWESOME. First of all, before I even met Dante I was bracing myself for a cliche romance. Eleanor was talking about him and saying how he was devastatingly gorgeous, keeps to himself, and everyone […]

I had a lot of mixed feelings about this book. It got off to a great start with the letter from mother to daughter telling Tempest that she would have a life-altering decision to make: stay human or become a mermaid. The letter captured my attention immediately and piqued my interest. I was thinking, What will she do? How will she choose?? But, I’m afraid to say that after that it was a downward spiral for me. I didn’t like […]

I’m sorry to say that this is another one that I had to force myself to finish. Through some morbid compulsion, I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. I suppose I was hoping it would get better and have some redeeming qualities, perhaps an unexpected twist or two towards the end, but nope. This book was very predictable. I felt zero surprise, zero joy, and all in all zero emotion. I found myself procrastinating by doing something, anything to […]

I ordered this book from Amazon about 6 months ago after it came out. I kept meaning to read it, but after reading a few really bad reviews I just kept putting it off. My thoughts after finishing? Why did I wait so long to make my own opinion?!?! Charles Xavier, meet Percy Jackson. I loved it! I must confess that when I read it (even after owning it for months), I had absolutely no clue about the mythology tied […]
