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 […]

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 […]

It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of romance, but I do enjoy them occasionally if they’re done well. Sadly, this one fell flat for me. My main problem was the characters. I couldn’t connect to Liam or Anna – in fact, they annoyed the crap out of me – and therefore I couldn’t bring myself to care about anything that was happening to them. It’s really not a good thing when you’re rooting for them to fail.  Sometimes […]

Oh lord. Honestly, I’m not sure how I even finished this book. Morbid curiosity? The need to see liars and cheaters have everything blow up in their faces? Who knows. But somehow I managed to stick it through to the end. So, the characters. Good God. I don’t think I’ve ever met so many characters I wanted to flog in one single book. So many vapid, shallow characters! We’ll start with Em. I despised her. With the fire of a […]

I knew going in that this book involved bad influence. What was I expecting? I dunno, maybe just a short walk on the wild side. Some drinking, steamy makeout sessions with a bad boy. Not drugs, sex, cheating, lying, and excessive underage drinking. This book really should not be labeled YA. I would NOT want my 13 or 14 year old to read something like this. As an adult book, it would have been somewhat alright. I say somewhat because, […]

Passion. Fate. Loyalty. Stupidity. This cover should be flagged for false advertisement. After all of the glowing reviews, I’m left to wonder….WHY DIDN’T I GET THE COPY THEY READ?! Ha ha, very funny, now where’s the REAL Tiger’s Curse?? The one that everybody LOVED because it was such an awesomely awesometastic book of awesome???? Guess the joke’s on me… Alright, where to start? First of all, the writing. GOOD LORD. Talk about sophomoric. I dealt with it for the first […]
