Review: Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

Review: Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

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 […]

Review: Fragments by Dan Wells

Review: Fragments by Dan Wells

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 […]

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 Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna

Review: The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna

What a beautiful story! It was desperate and emotional with a lyrical and captivating prose. I liked Eva, and I felt bad for her. All her life she’d been trained to be somebody else, never really getting to just be herself. How awful would that be? Imagine not being about to do anything you want to do. You have to like certain things, do certain things, just because your Other does. If your Other gets a bad haircut, or a […]

Review: Defiance by C.J. Redwine

Review: Defiance by C.J. Redwine

I was sure before I even picked this one up that I was going to love it. And in a rare instance, I was right! Many times when I go in with high hopes, I get disappointed. But that was not the case with Defiance. The fact that I could connect enough for it to actually make me cry earned major bonus points for this book. I even knew the bad thing was going to happen, because I saw it coming, […]

Review: Slide by Jill Hathaway

Review: Slide by Jill Hathaway

Secrets, lies, and danger, indeed! Slide was a fast-paced thriller with a plot that was crazy and twisted – I flew through this book in a matter of a few short hours because I didn’t want to put it down. The question of ‘Who is the killer?’ kept me thoroughly intrigued. Even though I rarely pick up mysteries, I enjoy reading them and trying to figure out what’s going to happen. Slide was a bit predictable, I’m afraid. I had a feeling of […]
