This is another one that I didn’t really know what to think of at first. The first page instantly grabbed my attention with talk of Oberon, Titania, and Puck from A Midsummer’s Night dream. While I can’t stand the Shakespearean language (mainly because it’s way above my head, ha), I love the lore of the courts – mainly because of reading the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. So, after this first page, my expectations were set high.    Then I […]

I didn’t really know what to think of this book. It started out really slow and although I love paranormal stuff, this story didn’t seem to sell very well at first. It came off as a little cheesy and cliche in some spots, but as the story started to pick up I actually found myself enjoying it. I almost gave up a couple times, but after like page 150 or so it finally gets interesting.   In the beginning Zara […]

My first thought upon finishing this book: Ahhhhhhhh. I love happy endings, and I especially love books that leave no loose ends.    There’s trouble in paradise when Lily’s squid-brain cousin, Dosinia, shows up to live with her and learn the ways of humans. Things soon get knee-deep as said cousin takes an instant liking to Lily’s ex-crush. In an ironic twist of fate, Lily makes an unexpected trip home to visit.   I must say I admire Lily for […]

While I hate chick flicks, I adore Disney movies. And this book is definitely Disney material. It’s like the Little Mermaid meets the Ugly Truth (if you haven’t seen it, you should watch it).   Lily has been “in love” – and I quote because it’s really more of obsession – with Brody for 3 years. They have a passing conversation here and there but for the most part he doesn’t really notice her. Her arrogant neighbor, Quince, decides to […]

So Kylie comes from a dysfunctional family…in the beginning, her parents (who I really just want to punch in the face repeatedly) are getting a divorce. She gets busted for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets shipped off to a camp of supernaturals. She has no idea that it’s actually a camp for supernaturals, so when she starts meeting her campmates things get a little freaky. But then the camp leader, Holiday, pulls her aside […]

After reading Bloodlust, this book seemed rather mundane. I wasn’t wowed by Childs’ prose, but I do admit there weren’t really many spots in this book that I got bored. This book was simple and mindless with not much thought required…but sometimes it’s nice for a quick and easy read. I really like the thought behind the story in this one…triplets separated at birth (with mythological powers) stumble upon each other unexpectedly…kind of like Parent Trap with a twist.  I […]
