I think this is probably my favorite of the series. I just love the underlying mystery, and the secrecy of the Chamber! This story is exciting from start to finish! Just like the first one, I don’t feel like I gained very much from reading the book after already seeing the movie because it’s so similar. But I still thoroughly enjoyed it! I did notice a few minute differences – like, they left Peeves completely out! And the creepy weird […]

ABOUT TIME, RIGHT?! *coughs* Yeah, it took me long enough, I know. Honestly though, I’d seen all of the movies, so I knew the gist of it (yes, I know, books always have more detail than the movies), so I had no desire to read them. I’ve been meaning to forever, I just…couldn’t bring myself to. Until finally, I drew it from my TBR jar! I’m going to be honest, I had actually tried reading this a couple years ago – […]

Whew, that was intense! It’s kind of like the Hunger Games – you should know better than to get attached to anyone cuz PEOPLE DIE. I mean, that was completely realistic though, because they’re fighting for their lives. I kind of liked that aspect. But sometimes it was still unexpected! MADOX. I still freaking looove Madox! I want him to be mine, all mine! He is definitely still the best part of this story. Also, I totally love that Tella was collecting Pandoras. […]

As far as series endings go, I felt like this one was kind of mediocre. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. Just not as much as the rest of the series. I feel like not much really happened in this book. In fact, it moved a little bit slow and I was pretty bored in the first half. There were only two scenes that really stuck out to me, and in turn those were the only two […]

This was a re-read for me – it’s been a couple years since I last read it, and I had pretty much forgotten everything except for the very end. Looking back, I wondered why I gave it 4 stars, but reading again I realized why. While it’s not exactly memorable, it was enjoyable while I was reading it! First of all, this book is a romance. We all know how Jessi feels about romance. But, it wasn’t bad at all. […]

Review: Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott

Review: Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott

This book reminded me a lot of a cross between The Hunger Games and The Golden Compass! I don’t particularly like to compare books, because that usually insinuates that one is a cheap ripoff of another, but that was not the case with Fire & Flood. Yes, it was similar; but Victoria Scott made it her own, and it was a unique and intriguing read! The egg is small and ugly, and if I’m not mistaken, it’s got a little stank […]
