[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Did I read an entirely different book than everyone else read?! I am 1000% disappointed in this. This is the second Kiersten white novel that didn’t work for me, and I confess I’m starting to lose faith in her books. For being a rather short book, it was INSANELY boring. Basically nothing happened for 95% of this book. The first exciting scene is nearly 70 pages in (in the ARC, anyway), then the next thing to happen is yet another […]

Review: Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Review: Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Wow, talk about disappointing. Honestly, this is probably one of the most disappointing books I’ve ever read in all my life. I love dragon stories. And the fastest way to ruin a dragon story is, gee, to NOT PUT ANY DRAGONS IN IT. Where were the dragons I was promised? WHERE?! (And I quote, from Jodi herself: “Lots and lots of dragons.” UTTER. BULLSHIT.) I mean, it had some dragons. But most of the dragon stuff was just talking about dragons. And […]

Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

**MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS** Well….there’s 4 hours of my life I’m never getting back. What. the actual fuck. did I just read……….*blank stare* WHY DID NO ONE WARN ME HOW FUCKING WEIRD THIS BOOK IS?! This book was NOT my thing. At all. Total waste of my time. This was my first foray into the world of magical realism, and if it’s all like this book it’s definitely not something I’d ever read again. There was so much WTFery in this story I […]

Review: Panic by Lauren Oliver

Review: Panic by Lauren Oliver

I thought for sure I was going to enjoy this book. I absolutely LOVED Before I Fall, and while I wasn’t the biggest fan, Delirium was still enjoyable. Sadly, this one did not work for me. The pacing was downright horrendous – I was bored out of my mind for most of the book. There was far too much detail about mundane things, and I think that could have been cut back to keep the pace moving. After pages and pages of detail […]

Review: Feed by Mira Grant

Review: Feed by Mira Grant

Once again, I am the black sheep here. I really thought I could FINALLY find a zombie book I could actually love (so far, there are none), but again, I was wrong. I just want to say first: I really enjoyed Parasite. I loved the convincing world building, and the concept was so realistic it was almost scary. So, if you agree with me and didn’t like Feed, I still suggest picking up Parasite. I am very character driven when it […]

Review: PODs by Michelle Pickett

Review: PODs by Michelle Pickett

Huge thanks to Spencer Hill for providing a review copy! I very nearly DNF’ed this book in the first 20-30 pages. I managed to stick through it somehow – my masochistic nature? or morbid curiosity? who knows – and honestly, I wouldn’t have been missing much. I was really looking forward to reading this because of the idea, but the delivery was so lackluster that it all just fell flat for me. My first problem happened very early when Eva […]
