I wanted to love this book. I really did. But honestly, it just gave me a headache. The idea of time-traveling fascinates me. But, the subject is tricky because of the high possibility (or with this one, probability) of confusion. I had a hard time not comparing this to Hourglass, which I read only last month and loved. Unfortunately, Tempest was just a tiny shadow in the blazing glory of Hourglass. (Yes I know, comparing is bad. Sorry.) So many […]

This story was beautiful and enchanting. I loved all the magical beings mentioned; sylphs, centaurs, trolls, and my favorite – dragons. I have always had an affinity for dragons, so that aspect alone made me like it even more. Also, I love originality and Incarnate had it in bounds. The idea of the same souls being reincarnated lifetimes over, the being known as ‘Janan’ (their God), and the unique take on sylphs and dragons. Everything about the world created was […]

A lot of times, when you see a book cover this beautiful, it’s compensating for something – as in, the lack of story in between the covers. This was not the case with Everneath. The story was just as beautiful as the cover. It broke my heart and crushed my soul. Like a grape. Okay, hold the phone, now I have to share a video… This whole clip is great, but I’m embedding it for a certain few seconds, 1:12 […]

Kickass heroine, check. Sexy mage, check. Cat-demon minion, check. Finding a book that’s actually worth your time, priceless. Ha, sorry couldn’t resist :) This book was a refreshing change from the last book I read (Dead Until Dark). It was fast paced and magical, and even had a little humor in it. Sabina was pretty awesome. She was tough and sarcastic and didn’t take crap from anyone – sounds like my kind of protag! I found myself picturing Michelle Rodriguez […]

Boy, do I despise getting my hopes up. There was so much hype and talk about this series that I was absolutely sure I’d like it. So, what did my dumb-ass self do? Bought the first NINE books. *bashes face into keyboard*  Aside from the obviously novice prose, there were so many things that were absolutely awful and wrong with this book that I don’t even know where to start.   Brace yourself, this is going to be long. If […]

Wow. This book was incredible! I love the mind-bending concept of time traveling and I’d never read a book about it before. It’s just so cool, even though if I think too much into the details it’s a bit hard to wrap my head around – like what traveling to the past and making any changes would do to the future. And paradoxes. Whaa – it’s like the dream within a dream within a dream stuff from Inception. Makes my […]
