Oh. My. God. When this book first started, I loathed Sam and her friends. They were everything I hate in girls – snobby, preppy, shallow. Cheating on tests and copying homework. Making fun of everyone they consider less fortunate. Flirting with teachers (gag). I was disgusted by how Sam and her friends treated other people. And I found it irritating how focused on sex they were, like it was the most important thing in a relationship, or something to gain […]

I heard good things about this book, so I was reeeaaaally looking forward to reading it. I was most certainly not disappointed. Karou. Her name means hope. Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic. She’s an enigma – her hair grows blue from her scalp, she collects languages, and […]

After reading several awesome reviews for this book, I was really itching to get my hands on it and see what the fuss was all about. So, let’s get the complaints out of the way first. The purple prose really disappointed me (even though I tried not to let it because I was so looking forward to reading this). And the metaphors, good LORD, the metaphors. Every freaking page. A few is one thing, but after the first like, 20, […]

This is another one that I didn’t really know what to think of at first. The first page instantly grabbed my attention with talk of Oberon, Titania, and Puck from A Midsummer’s Night dream. While I can’t stand the Shakespearean language (mainly because it’s way above my head, ha), I love the lore of the courts – mainly because of reading the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. So, after this first page, my expectations were set high.    Then I […]

This is hands down my favorite series. The entire saga is just incredibly written with so many twists and turns and dark secrets. I love the world that Karen paints with brilliant and masterful words! I just read this one again so I am writing this review now. When I finish my library books, I’ll start back up with the re-reading the rest of the series and review those too. Reading this for the second time was almost as thrilling […]

I. Love. This. Series. Each and every book is amazing in its own right, and someday I’ll write a review for each. But as for this book, it was an incredible end to a great saga.   Ash goes through so much and overcomes so many trials in the Iron Knight just for the hope to be with Meghan. He puts it all on the line for love, and I adore him for it. It was really interesting to see […]
