This is a hard review to write, because this book inspired absolutely nothing for me. No emotion, no interest, nothing. Overall, this book was just ‘meh.’ Maybe even less than that. It’s not that I hated it, but I didn’t really like it either. This book was just….there. It won’t leave a lasting impression and I probably won’t remember anything about it a month down the road. Honestly, it was a struggle to finish it. The characters were flat and I couldn’t […]

I’ve been meaning to read this one for quite some time now; I’d been really excited to dive into this story, as there was a lot of hype about it when it was a newer book. I met Rae at a signing not too long ago, and thought she was pretty awesome. So it makes me very sad to say that this one wasn’t really my cup of tea. It was slow, painfully slow, in the first half. I was […]

*Huge thanks to Harper for providing a review copy! This one was very original, and I seriously love the concept. I do. BUT – the execution kind of ruined it for me. I’m going to be honest here, the world building was pretty crappy. I was confused about a lot of things, and I had a really hard time grasping the world. I couldn’t picture anything in my head, and much of it was so vague on description that I […]

I read almost all of this in one night…not exactly by choice: My Digital Editions copy was expiring, haha. But it was a pretty quick and easy read. Let’s get the things I didn’t like out of the way first. My main issue? The characters. I didn’t connect the way I hoped: In fact, I didn’t connect at all. My major complaint was the switching views. Normally I love it, because you can see different perspectives of the same story. But […]

Not gonna lie, I very nearly marked this as DNF about 200 pages through. I really should have. I was going to give myself another 40 pages, and by then I was so close to the end I just forced myself to finish the rest. Plus, I had heard a lot of people saying that the last half is worth it…NOT. It was the same dull, drab story all the way through for me. I think the real issue here […]
