I honestly wasn’t even sure I would like this book, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it!! For a girl with such a fat ass, I was practically invisible. I think the main thing that made me like this book is that I connected with Bianca on a very deep level. She was like me in so many ways it was scary! I found her very relatable, which led to me developing a connection to […]

Ugh. Where do I start? I struggled through about 90% of this book. I’m thinking Holly Black books are maybe just not for me – I DNFed both Coldest Girl and White Cat. I wish I had DNFed this one too. The pacing was painfully slow. There wasn’t much happening for the majority of this story, with nothing but intrigue to keep you going. Actually, it didn’t seem like there was any plot at all in this book. Nothing really […]

I’m going to be honest, I was afraid to even pick this book up. The reviews for it are horrific. I don’t think I’d seen one good review out there. But, I saw everyone raving about the TV show, and I couldn’t watch it without at least giving the book a chance first (*coughs* because I would never, ever read the book after watching it). Now, unfortunately, I see why people don’t like it. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t […]

Mini Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

I was really impressed with Virginia Boecker’s prose. It was engaging, so even when there was a lull in the plot or action, I was still interested in the story! I freaking loved George! He cracked me up! I was really hoping in the beginning that he was going to be the love interest. (*sighs wistfully*) I also really liked Fifer! She was feisty, and even though she came off as a hard ass (or worse), she totally won me […]

This was a tad difficult to rate. It was mostly enjoyable while I was actually reading, but now that I’m not it’s….fading. While there were things happening, I don’t really feel like all that much happened. It seemed like a bunch of running around and avoiding getting killed, with no real plot. We don’t find out what Dai’s purpose is (or what the point of the numbers is) until closer to the end. There was a lull around 20% or so where […]

I think it would be impossible not to love anything that Laini Taylor wrote. She’s so talented at stringing sentences together beautifully, even magically, that she can make even the most mundane things seem interesting! I have scuppies in my pocket and lust in my heart. Tonight’s the night. I love Zuzana. She’s hilarious! She’s tiny but fiesty as hell, and she’s got heart as big as her attitude when it comes to the people she cares about. Also, she’s just […]
