Big thanks to HarperTeen for providing a review copy! I had the same problem with this one that I had with Ten: TOO MUCH DRAMA. I mean, I understand that they’re in high school, but jeez! High school is NOT like reality TV. Either that or I just had a ridiculously tame high school. To be honest, this could have been a 4 star book for me if it hadn’t been for the characters. The originality was outstanding, and I […]

Make no mistake, I was Team Jack 100% in Everneath. No, I didn’t read Neverfall, and I didn’t care to. I really don’t think it could have made me like Cole because I seriously couldn’t stand him in the first book. Everbound is very full of Cole. I can’t say he’s the main focus, because everything that Nikki does, she does for Jack. But still. There was far too much of him for my tastes, and I certainly didn’t want to find any reason […]

This review contains spoilers for Defiance if you haven’t read it. Big thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review!  WOW. If I had one word to describe this thrilling sequel to Defiance, it would be INTENSE. Goodness, where do I start? This book picked up right where the first left off, with Baalboden destroyed and the Commander escaped. It jumped right into the action with the survivors setting out into the Wasteland. And from there on, the story […]

Wowza! Unraveling blew my mind, and I shouldn’t have expected anything less from the sequel. It’s fast paced and will have you on the edge of your seat! I couldn’t get enough of this book – even when I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. You can always count on Elizabeth Norris to yank the rug out from under you. There were a few times where I gasped out loud or just stared at the pages agape because […]

Find the answers. Solve the problem. You don’t get a life until you make one worth living. I loved Partials. LOVED it (I gave it 5 starfish). Maybe because of this I set my expectations sky high for Fragments, thinking it would be just as good, probably better. I’ll be honest here, I was kinda disappointed. But as you can see, I still gave it 4 stars. Dan Wells is BRILLIANT when it comes to world building. Seriously. He has […]

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 […]
