Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Just so you know, I never really liked alien stories. I do now. Let me start by telling a story (it’s kind of long, I apologize in advance). I have wanted this book sooo incredibly bad since it came out. Aliens don’t really appeal to me, but I did like Smallville (I was an avid watcher for the first couple seasons) and even though I only saw episode 1 of Roswell, I liked it too. This book sounded a bit […]

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Oh. My. God. When this book first started, I loathed Sam and her friends. They were everything I hate in girls – snobby, preppy, shallow. Cheating on tests and copying homework. Making fun of everyone they consider less fortunate. Flirting with teachers (gag). I was disgusted by how Sam and her friends treated other people. And I found it irritating how focused on sex they were, like it was the most important thing in a relationship, or something to gain […]

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I heard good things about this book, so I was reeeaaaally looking forward to reading it. I was most certainly not disappointed. Karou. Her name means hope. Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic. She’s an enigma – her hair grows blue from her scalp, she collects languages, and […]

Review: Bloodlust by Michelle Rowen

Review: Bloodlust by Michelle Rowen

Man, this book was intense. Rowen outdid herself in this one. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read…from shock to anger to despair, I felt like I was right there with Jill at every turn. Rowen really injected you as a reader into the story in a way that surpassed the first book. There were so many times I was engrossed in this book, reading open-mouthed in awe (and exclaiming “oh shit!” out loud).    Declan’s mood swings (caused […]

Review: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Review: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

This is hands down my favorite series. The entire saga is just incredibly written with so many twists and turns and dark secrets. I love the world that Karen paints with brilliant and masterful words! I just read this one again so I am writing this review now. When I finish my library books, I’ll start back up with the re-reading the rest of the series and review those too. Reading this for the second time was almost as thrilling […]

Review: The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

I. Love. This. Series. Each and every book is amazing in its own right, and someday I’ll write a review for each. But as for this book, it was an incredible end to a great saga.   Ash goes through so much and overcomes so many trials in the Iron Knight just for the hope to be with Meghan. He puts it all on the line for love, and I adore him for it. It was really interesting to see […]
