Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Good freaking lord, am I the ONLY person who didn’t like this book? I don’t understand the hype this book has. It was like Red Queen and Snow Like Ashes all over again. This book was SO generic. It was not memorable at all and doesn’t stand out in the sea of other High Fantasy books.  Actually, as far as HF goes, this one was a terrible one. There’s so many other, better HFs out there! There was NO world building in this […]

Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Ugh. Where do I start? I struggled through about 90% of this book. I’m thinking Holly Black books are maybe just not for me – I DNFed both Coldest Girl and White Cat. I wish I had DNFed this one too. The pacing was painfully slow. There wasn’t much happening for the majority of this story, with nothing but intrigue to keep you going. Actually, it didn’t seem like there was any plot at all in this book. Nothing really […]

Review: Prophecy by Ellen Oh

Review: Prophecy by Ellen Oh

I started to DNF at 78 pages. Then I changed my mind and picked it back up. Then, at 140 pages I just couldn’t take it anymore. Putting this one down kind of killed me, though. So I ended up picking it back up again and I just skimmed the rest. It bugged me too much to not finish it! First of all, the cover is SO gorgeous! Secondly, I’ve been looking forward to this book since I first heard about […]

Review: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Review: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Meh. That’s the best word I can describe this book with, and it’s mostly all I have to say about it. But I can’t write a one word review, can I? First of all, this book was weird. And confusing. There were a lot of WTF moments, and sometimes it didn’t make any sense at all. There were a lot of terms that weren’t explained, either: downhollow, fiend (which I eventually figured out was basically a demon), crooked (I finally […]

Review: Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

Review: Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

This is a hard review to write, because this book inspired absolutely nothing for me. No emotion, no interest, nothing. Overall, this book was just ‘meh.’ Maybe even less than that. It’s not that I hated it, but I didn’t really like it either. This book was just….there. It won’t leave a lasting impression and I probably won’t remember anything about it a month down the road. Honestly, it was a struggle to finish it. The characters were flat and I couldn’t […]

Review: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Review: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Perhaps I doomed myself by going into this book with sky high hopes. And perhaps I deserve it because even after seeing some not-so-great reviews, my shallow nature wouldn’t let me walk away from the beautiful, beautiful cover. (Damn you, beautiful cover, damn you.) But my goodness, I was highly disappointed in this book! First of all, WHERE IS THE GOTHIC NOVEL I WAS PROMISED?!?! This was supposed to be a horror! This book is NOT a horror. It is […]
