My major issue with this book was with Cole and Ali’s relationship. It was so hot and cold that I got mental whiplash! I mean, the breakup part of it was very realistic. Having just gone through a breakup myself, it made me sick to my stomach to read it, because I knew what Ali was feeling. But sometimes they were so ridiculous I wanted to bash their heads together! I couldn’t see any real reason for the way Cole was acting. […]

Going into this, I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to like it. First of all, it was really over-hyped. Which tend to be the kind of books I end up not liking. Second, the negative reviews I read scared me away. A few things I heard about this book that made me not want to read it: Despite the title, it’s not actually about zombies. Or Alice in Wonderland. Gena Showalter tried too hard to make the prose sound like […]

This was just as amazing as I knew it was going to be! I mean, it’s Julie. Obviously I’m going to love it. (Also I was totally geeking out because I got the eARC before anyone else…before Julie even got her author copies. Like, what?! I FEEL SO SPESHUL, GUYS.) What blows me away each and every time about Julie’s storytelling is that it feels so real. Her imagery is very vivid and it’s so easy to picture everything like I […]

Why dragons are cooler than humans: They can fly. They can breathe fire. They have scales as armor and are practically invincible. They’re badasses. THEY CAN FLY. It’s no secret that Julie Kagawa is my favorite author. I’ve read and loved every single book she’s ever published. So of course, I was DYING to get my hands on this one. I requested the ARC, tried trading on YA Book Exchange, even tried to see if any of my friends had […]

I will try my best not to include spoilers outside of spoiler tags, but it is very difficult to talk about without spoiling anything, so beware! I say this in every review of a Julie Kagawa book: Julie cannot write a bad book. It’s just not possible. There hasn’t been a single book she’s written that I didn’t love, and this one was no exception!! I was sad to see this trilogy end, but I loved the way everything was wrapped […]

I did not like The Goddess Test at all, so even though this sounded interesting I didn’t go in with high hopes. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. Aimee’s writing has come a long way! I loved the idea of this book. I thought it was fascinating how people had to take a test at 17 years of age to determine how their life would be. They were marked by a number I – VII; the higher the number, the higher your […]
