When I was reading this, I loved it. But now that a few days have passed, I realized: This book is forgettable. For me, at least. The pacing was quick and there were times when I was so engrossed that I couldn’t put the book down. But now, looking back, I find I have to think hard to remember the details, although it’s only been a couple days since I finished. That’s not a good thing. I liked Anna. Liked, […]

Let’s start with a story, shall we? When I was around page 80 or so, I had a desperate urge to play Black Ops II (my current gaming addiction). After a brief argument with myself, I promised myself that if I made it to page 150  (because after all, what is a good relationship without compromise?), I could be rewarded with some beloved Domination and murder. What I didn’t expect was that an hour later I would so engrossed in this book […]

**Caution: May contain spoilers** Let me just say: This synopsis is NOT the one I read. If I had read this one, I probably wouldn’t have even bothered with this book. Despite it’s short length, I didn’t actually read all of it. I made a valiant effort. Really, I did. But the lead character, B, was such a douchenozzle that I simply couldn’t go on. I usually don’t rate things I don’t read all of, but I think I read enough […]

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

I am a priestess of a sandcastle in a land of dust and starlight. I don’t even know where to start! This book rocked my socks off, guys. It was just as good as (if not better than) Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Laini’s writing is dark and beautiful and paints a vivid picture of her stunning world. Days of Blood and Starlight enchanted me! I love Karou! I liked her even more in this book because you get to see […]

This was a step outside of my usual circle of genres for me. I like forensic stuff and I’m a huge fan of the show Dexter, but this was the first thriller/murder mystery I’ve ever read (unless you count Deadly Cool, which I don’t). Like a typical crime scene setup, there were some gruesome scenes in this book – so if you’re really squeamish, I probably wouldn’t recommend it. Those scenes didn’t exactly go into depth and detail and they […]

Sadly, I was disappointed in this one. I’m having trouble forming those disappointments into exact sentences, but it just left me with an overall feeling of…meh. The idea of it sounds awesome – a drug that brings you back from death? Sounds like a thrilling, gripping read, right? Wrong. It was more of a contemporary with a sci-fi twist. I was expecting some deathly encounters involving Daisy – after all, it says she’s died a whopping FIVE times. The only death […]
