This is the second time I’ve read this book. I just bought City of Lost Souls, so I’m re-reading the whole MI series before I start on that one. It’s hard for me to write this review because it’s hard to be objective about something you already had an opinion of. I loved the series the first time and I enjoyed this one just as much the second time around. It’s a fast paced and easy read, full of twists […]

Let me just say right now that I didn’t read the whole thing (made it to page 169, little more than halfway), but this still isn’t totally a DNF for me because I skimmed the last half and read the ending. So I can, in all fairness, give it a one starfish rating. I do not want to hear even ONE more person compare this book to The Little Mermaid. The only thing remotely similar was that the mermaid (in […]

While this one didn’t quite wow me, it was still a good read. Rhine and Gabriel have escaped out of the frying pan and right into the fire. The world isn’t quite what Rhine was expecting. While I liked her in Wither, Rhine sort of annoyed me in this one. When she was at the mansion, she was desperate to escape, yet when she finally does, she continues to dwell on her life there. Um, hello, you got what you […]

I ordered this book from Amazon about 6 months ago after it came out. I kept meaning to read it, but after reading a few really bad reviews I just kept putting it off. My thoughts after finishing? Why did I wait so long to make my own opinion?!?! Charles Xavier, meet Percy Jackson. I loved it! I must confess that when I read it (even after owning it for months), I had absolutely no clue about the mythology tied […]

There were so many things wrong with this book in the world-building category it’s not even funny, so I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first.   First of all, I would have loved to know what year it’s supposed to be. The only thing she gives you is, “Seventy years ago science perfected the art of children.” So how far in the future from now is that perfection? Your guess is as good as mine. So […]

When Mara’s friends die in an accident, she moves to Florida. I thought that was appropriate, considering I’m in Florida right now on vacation. Anyway, this book was pretty uneventful for the first 200 pages. A few PTSD hallucinations in the form of creepy dead people sightings here and there to keep you intrigued, that was about it. It’s mostly just Mara getting adjusted to life at a new school without her friends. After those 200 pages it picked up […]
