I gave this book 2 stars (it was ok) even though it wasn’t ok for me because I didn’t really like it at all. But there wasn’t anything fundamentally wrong with it except for the simple fact that it wasn’t for me. There was pretty much nothing happening for the first 3/4 of the book except a bunch of music jargon – all stuff about bands/singers I either a) don’t like, b) don’t give an ass rat’s about, or c) […]

A lot of times, when you see a book cover this beautiful, it’s compensating for something – as in, the lack of story in between the covers. This was not the case with Everneath. The story was just as beautiful as the cover. It broke my heart and crushed my soul. Like a grape. Okay, hold the phone, now I have to share a video… This whole clip is great, but I’m embedding it for a certain few seconds, 1:12 […]

Rossi did not disappoint in her debut novel. Under the Never Sky was a beautiful, enthralling, and unique story and I ate it up! Although, I must say I started out extremely confused. You’re pretty much dumped into this advanced future world with hardly any explanation and terms are thrown at you – pod, Reverie, Bliss, Scire, Aether, Smarteye – it was a little overwhelming at first. But as the book went along, I picked up (slowly) on what it all […]

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Oh. My. God. When this book first started, I loathed Sam and her friends. They were everything I hate in girls – snobby, preppy, shallow. Cheating on tests and copying homework. Making fun of everyone they consider less fortunate. Flirting with teachers (gag). I was disgusted by how Sam and her friends treated other people. And I found it irritating how focused on sex they were, like it was the most important thing in a relationship, or something to gain […]

After reading several awesome reviews for this book, I was really itching to get my hands on it and see what the fuss was all about. So, let’s get the complaints out of the way first. The purple prose really disappointed me (even though I tried not to let it because I was so looking forward to reading this). And the metaphors, good LORD, the metaphors. Every freaking page. A few is one thing, but after the first like, 20, […]
