We are the tide. And we are rising. While I still enjoyed this one – it’s hard not to, with the lovely prose and amazing world – I had the same problem with this one that I did with Golden Son: Yet more politics and war strategy dominating the majority of this book. There was a good chunk in the middle that was downright boring because of that. I think some of that could have been condensed and the story […]

I am a child of hell, and I have spent too long in their heaven. My goodness. This book was SO slow. There was soooo much politics and war strategy throughout 75% of this book, and I was growing severely bored with it. The pace was extremely slow as compared to the first book. I was rather sad that it wasn’t as special as the first book was. Despite that, I was still intrigued by the premise. I love the hierarchy […]

I am right. He is wrong. I am the spark that will set the worlds afire. I am the hammer that cracks the chains. What the slag made me wait so gorydamn long to read this book?! This book was awesome! It totally took me by surprise. I’ve been seeing it around everywhere since it came out, have witnessed many readers raving about how amazing it is, and still I put off reading it. Why? I don’t even know. I guess […]

In the beginning, I wasn’t sure I’d like this book at all. Actually, I was weary of picking it up in the first place. Cotillion and couture aren’t really my thing. The only thing that pushed me to try anyway was the fact that it’s Rachel Hawkins, and I loved her Hex Hall series. In the beginning, I didn’t like it. I found Harper to be extremely shallow. The whole book seemed shallow. I mean, there was an in-depth discussion about lip gloss […]

I’ve had this book forEVER, and I kept putting it off and putting it off…I don’t even know why! I really enjoyed In the After. I was really looking forward to this one. And I ended up enjoying this one almost just as much! I should have read it much sooner! I enjoyed being back in the world of In the After. I forgot how much of a badass Amy was! She didn’t take crap from anyone, and had no […]

I was kind of bored through most of this book, honestly. The parts where Emily was doing things on the list were fun, but other than that the prose was very…mundane. I’m not a big fan of contemporaries because of the fact that it’s everyday things you’re reading about, and I personally don’t want to read about what someone does in their daily routine. To me, it’s Snoresville. So when I do decide to pick up a contemporary, I need […]
