I don’t really have much to say about this book since I liked it. I have absolutely nothing to complain about as far as prose goes (which is what makes long book reviews for me…spending time complaining). The first line of this book is “Whoever said dying was easy was full of crap,” so just with the very first sentence I was hooked. The beginning was interesting and attention-grabbing, giving you a glimpse at dying and the afterlife through Patrick’s eyes. […]

I. HATE. LOVE. TRIANGLES!!!! Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system. I was thoroughly unimpressed by this book. The plot was good, sure, but it just lacked for me. Even the ending –  with everything falling apart and the death of an important character – felt rushed. Maybe because I was skimming to get to the end and get it over with, who knows. It wasn’t a bad book necessarily, but it wasn’t memorable at all. Her prose […]

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 […]

I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I laid eyes on it, so I had pretty high expectations. And thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. It certainly wasn’t a slow start (which appealed to me, because I get bored easily), with Jill getting stabbed with a syringe and injected with Nightshade, vampire poison. I loved the development between Jill and and her kidnapper, Dec…the way it turns into Stockholm Syndrome also appeals to me because I really like romances […]

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 […]

Not gonna lie, this book was pretty boring. It was extremely slow and didn’t seem to have much of a plot. It was a lot of Toby running around and getting hurt. She was constantly almost dying, it was a little annoying really. It’s been a month or two since I read it and I already forget most of the book. I did enjoy several of the characters, one was a young, headstrong girl (I don’t even remember her name…sad, […]
