Review: 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil

Review: 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil

Big thanks to HarperTeen for providing a review copy! I had the same problem with this one that I had with Ten: TOO MUCH DRAMA. I mean, I understand that they’re in high school, but jeez! High school is NOT like reality TV. Either that or I just had a ridiculously tame high school. To be honest, this could have been a 4 star book for me if it hadn’t been for the characters. The originality was outstanding, and I […]

Review: Poison by Bridget Zinn

Review: Poison by Bridget Zinn

I had been reeeaaally looking forward to this one. In fact, it was one of my most anticipated spring releases. And after seeing many gushing reviews from friends and blogs I follow, I was sure I’d love it. I’m sad to say that I was highly disappointed. It probably also didn’t help that I had just read it after an amazing book (Eternity Cure). Either way, my expectations were just set far too high. My first issue: The prose. It was […]

Audiobook Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

Audiobook Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

First of all, this book is NOT about the Underworld. It’s about a girl who spends 20 minutes in the Underworld then spends the rest of the story adjusting to life after a NDE (near death experience). I cannot express how disappointed I am that the Underworld parts were so tiny. There were far too many things that were either absurd or made absolutely no sense. 1) John’s age didn’t add up. When she was in the cemetery for her […]

Review: Afterlight by Elle Jasper

Review: Afterlight by Elle Jasper

I had trouble getting through this one. Why? Because it was a cookie-cutter of Twilight. (Am I the only one who noticed this?!) Sure, there were some differences…it had some colorful icing and fancy sprinkles added for camouflage. But the basics were disturbingly similar. I should have known in the prologue when Riley said she was ‘utterly, irrevocably in love’ with a vampire, and my first thought was easy, Twilight. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN. *shakes fist* The book was fairly […]

Review: Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

Review: Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

After all the hype over this series and Stacia Kane’s work, I was expecting much, much more. I’m afraid I ended up being disappointed. To be honest, I almost DNFed this one in the first 100 pages. It didn’t get interesting for me until around 170 when Tyson entered the story, and it finally picked up. That’s a little too much boring for my taste.   My next problem was that I felt like I was dumped in the middle of […]

Review: Croak by Gina Damico

Review: Croak by Gina Damico

How did I feel about this book? Meh. That about covers it. I couldn’t connect with Lex at all, and I didn’t particularly like her. It seemed like Gina was going for kick-ass heroine, but it didn’t work for Lex. She was unnecessarily violent to the point of being a bully. I didn’t find her ‘cool’ at all, I just felt like she tried to hard. Aside from being a bully, she was childish and selfish. While I did like […]
