Review: Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

Review: Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

Another Little Piece was dark and rather twisted, and I think that’s why I enjoyed it. It was kinda f*cked up at times, and sometimes I wondered what the heck I was reading, but in a good way! Every time I found another piece of the past, I wasn’t remembering it so much as reliving it. I like the way the story was told, with little snippets of flashbacks mixed in with the present. I saw a lot of complaints […]

Review: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Review: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Caution: May contain spoilers for Anna Dressed in Blood I’ve been seeing everyone rave about how amazing this book was, how it was even better than the first….but I was disappointed. It didn’t even come close to comparing to Anna (which I rated 4 stars). There was a major disconnect from the story for me. I don’t exactly know why, but I couldn’t muster up any emotion at all. I didn’t care about the characters or what was happening. Honestly, I […]

Review: Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Review: Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Hmm. I had a lot of mixed feelings about this one, so let me start with the bad (as per usual for me). The beginning dragged. A lot. There was waaaay too much teen angst and relationship drama for my tastes (I KNOW, it’s young adult. I know. But this was juvenile even for YA), which brought the story down quite a bit – for me, at least. It read too much like a typical and cliche horror movie: A […]

Review: The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee

Review: The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee

This book was totally creepy! It grabbed my attention right from the beginning and refused to let go. Suspenseful and chilling, I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, wondering what would happen next. I just want to get something off my mind right now before I go any further: I don’t know what’s up with killing felines in books lately, but it really needs to stop. It doesn’t add anything to the story except outrage (for […]

Review: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Review: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

I had some trouble getting into this one. To be honest, I wanted to put it down in the first half. I’m glad I didn’t, because the last quarter was pretty good! I think I was bored early on because there wasn’t much happening action-wise. This is only the second true zombie book I’ve read, and I was expecting an overload of flesh-eating zombies. But, they hardly had an appearance except for the very beginning and very end, which disappointed me […]

Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

I felt that this book was much too long for the content. It dragged on a bit for me, and I think if some of the filler had been cut out, I would have enjoyed it a lot more. There wasn’t much at all happening for the first ¾ of the book (and seeing as how it’s 500+ pages long, that’s a lot), just an occasional creeptastic part to pique my interest and make me wonder what would happen. I […]
