I’ll always come back for you. I promise you on iron and stars. This book started off horribly slow, but did get more interesting as it went on. It was good for a debut. It was also an interesting mix of sci-fi and high fantasy – while it felt very strongly like a sci-fi, the setting was HF. My main complaint is that this book was horribly, painfully predictable. It also felt rather generic. It’s a retelling of Anastasia, which […]

The monstrous act by definition demands a monster. I have VERY mixed feelings about this book, even more so than the first one. I loved the first book simply for the fact that it was super creepy, gripping, and was actual horror. This one was a lot more…disturbing. It was very gruesome, which I love. It’s totally twisted, but I love gory stuff! And this one was the goriest of the gory. I mean, there was a certain scene close to the end […]

Okay, so I’d enjoy anything Mortal Instruments just because I love the world. But sadly, I’ve fallen out of love with this series. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it while reading – but ever since City of Glass, the books have failed to leave a lasting impression on me. It’s kind of like beating a dead horse at this point. I strongly believe that Cassie should have left this a trilogy, the way it was originally meant to […]

“They work their discreet types of madness on us, power and pain, and we hold to our truths in the darkness.” I had major problems connecting with this book. Mainly to our lead, Grace. I got no feeling whatsoever from her. In fact, it seemed as if she didn’t have feelings. She was telling the story, but she never had any emotion. Therefore, I felt nothing. I was an onlooker to this story, not part of it. I like to experience […]

How to review this book? I had some very mixed feelings about this book. The concept was actually quite brilliant, but I found the delivery to be lacking. The premise was pretty awesome! Very cool! That is mostly where my enjoyment ended. I didn’t care about any of the characters and couldn’t connect to Narissa. Actually, I didn’t like our lead female much at all. She was kind of immature and hypocritical. There were times where I actually hated her – […]

This is a hard review to write, because this book didn’t really do anything for me either way. I didn’t love it, and I didn’t hate it. It was just….meh. It wasn’t bad – it held my interest well enough and wasn’t a struggle to read – but it wasn’t really that great, either. You know the kind of book that’s alright when you read it, but you don’t retain anything from it and you will probably forget about it […]
