I think I mentioned in my review of Between the Lines that I would have never looked twice at these books based off of the covers. This one is better than the last, but it still doesn’t scream “Young Adult fantasy” to me. But I’m very glad I received this one for review, because I really enjoyed it! I am highly impressed by how much the writing style improved from the last book. (Part of that may be because two heads are […]

I’m going to be honest, this is a book I would never have picked up on my own. The cover just screams “contemporary” and I’m not a big contemp reader. I also wouldn’t have pegged it as YA. Not to mention the average Goodreads rating is only 3.53, which typically scares me away from reading. But, I got the companion/sequel novel, Off the Page, from the publisher for review and everyone told me that I should read this one first. […]

It has been a very, very long time since a book has disappointed me so much. It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. *sighs dramatically* I liked the first book, but didn’t love it. The second book was really good, and I liked it much better. After seeing review after review, RAVING about this book and how incredible it was, and seeing people’s WTF status updates, I expected this book to be mind blowing. Maybe because […]

As far as series endings go, I felt like this one was kind of mediocre. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. Just not as much as the rest of the series. I feel like not much really happened in this book. In fact, it moved a little bit slow and I was pretty bored in the first half. There were only two scenes that really stuck out to me, and in turn those were the only two […]

This was a re-read for me – it’s been a couple years since I last read it, and I had pretty much forgotten everything except for the very end. Looking back, I wondered why I gave it 4 stars, but reading again I realized why. While it’s not exactly memorable, it was enjoyable while I was reading it! First of all, this book is a romance. We all know how Jessi feels about romance. But, it wasn’t bad at all. […]

My feelings about this were so hot and cold that I felt the need to make an infographic for it: My hate is stronger than the dimensions, stronger than memory, stronger than time. My hate is now the truest part of who I am. I was SO onboard with this story in the beginning. The prologue blew me away and completely grabbed my attention. Then we enter a futuristic feeling, technologically advanced London. And it was AWESOME! I loved the world, […]
