Insurgent. Noun. A person who acts in opposition to the established authority, who is not necessarily regarded as a belligerent. While I still mostly enjoyed this one, it was overall kind of meh for me. Now that I’ve finished it, the book is already fading away. It won’t stick with me or leave a lasting impression. The feeling (or lack thereof) I got from this book probably didn’t deserve a 3 heartbeat rating, but I did enjoy it while I […]

This is not the first time I’ve read this book; I read it back in 2011 when it first came out. I liked it the first time, but it didn’t wow me. I probably would have given it 3-3.5 stars. That was before I started blogging, and I remembered next to nothing, so it was almost like reading it for the first time again. I was never really on the Divergent bandwagon with all of the crazed fans, but with […]

I absolutely LOVED Hemlock (I gave it 5 stars!), and have been jonesing for the sequel for months and months. But for some reason, it just didn’t have the magic that the first book had for me. It was still good, but I was disappointed in some small way with it. My main problem was that I couldn’t connect (seems to be the theme these days, doesn’t it?) as well as I did with Hemlock. I enjoyed the story, but I wasn’t invested […]

Not a Drop to Drink was a very character driven novel. The characters were thoroughly fleshed out and so realistic that I connected to each and every one of them. At some point I realized with a shock just how invested in them I actually was! Then I had to steel myself for the unavoidable heartbreak that I was probably in for… This book is not fluffy unicorns and happy rainbows. It’s dark, and desperate, even depressing at times. That’s […]

I was seriously looking forward to this book! It was one of my most anticipated summer releases. I was seriously disappointed. It’s not that I didn’t like it. It was just meh. And for some reason it really reminded me of Doomed by Tracy Deebs, so it kinda felt like I had read it already. My main problem was that I didn’t give a crap about any of the characters. They were all cardboard cutouts with little to no personality […]

Besides Taken, this was my most anticipated debut of 2013. Did it disappoint? It surely did not! There was plenty of action, and once this book grabs you it doesn’t let go. I positively LOVED the setting! There are not nearly enough futuristic stories that take place over the water. The idea of a future where Manhattan is almost entirely underwater is fascinating to me. And something cool came from all that water: Roofracing. Now, I tried not to think […]
