Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Donated by an anonymous benefactor, for all the crooked saints. I had been looking forward to this book ALL. YEAR. I was sure I’d love it because it sounded so interesting, but I was also worried for two reasons: The hype. I tend to be the black sheep on over-hyped books Maggie’s writing is very hit-or-miss for me. I loved the Raven Boys and Scorpio Races, and Shiver was okay, but I didn’t like the 2nd or 3rd Wolves of Mercy […]

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Trust no one. Question everything. This book is very difficult for me to review because I kind of have a love/hate relationship with it. I was really excited for this book. In fact, it was in the top 10 on my most anticipated releases of 2016 list. I was so sure I was going to love it, because I loved the White Rabbit Chronicles and the Intertwined trilogy. Sadly, I was disappointed. In the beginning, I had no idea what was going […]

Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

I had very mixed feelings about this book. I think the thing I enjoyed most about it was how seriously twisted it was. It was very dark, and I liked that! But sadly, that was where the enjoyment ended. There was a scene in the beginning pissed me off to the point that I very nearly DNFed it. I wanted to throw my Kindle against a wall! Erin has a cat (named Clint Eastwood…and it’s a female. Wtf….) that has […]

Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

I had been wanting to read this for a while, yet at the same time dreading it because while I was intrigued, I was pretty sure it wouldn’t be a me book. Actually, I was quite sure I was going to hate it, but curiosity about the hype eventually won out. Surprisingly, I didn’t hate it like I thought I would, but I wasn’t all that impressed, either. I felt very ‘meh’ about everything. I didn’t care about the characters or the […]

Review: The Rose Society by Marie Lu

Review: The Rose Society by Marie Lu

Wow. What the hell happened? I am vastly disappointed by how underwhelmed I was with this book. Actually, I struggled to maintain interest through most of it. I found myself bored and disinterested to the point that I contemplating DNFing. Again, I ask – what the hell?! I absolutely LOVED The Young Elites. I gave it 4.5 stars. Somewhere along the way, the magic was lost for me. Does this book just have Second Book Syndrome? Or is it me? […]

Review: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Review: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Gold makes monsters of men. Hmm. This review is hard to write, because I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this book. It’s not the kind of story that I would typically even consider picking up, because I’m not really into westerns or anything remotely historical. But, I was in the mood for something different from my usual sci-fi or fantasy novel, and this one sounded interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed Rae Carson’s Walk the Earth a Stranger, and this […]
