Review: The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa

I think I’ve said this a thousand times already, but there is literally nothing that Julie could write that I wouldn’t be excited to read. Nothing. It could be a book about mathematics (which she probably doesn’t even like anyway…) and she’d find a way to make it interesting. There’s a reason she’s my favorite YA author! This one was even better than The Lost Prince.  I loved Ethan and Kenzie’s relationship in a way that I didn’t in the first […]

Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Gods, I don’t know how to get my whirling thoughts into a coherent review! If you’re going to read this book, have a box of tissues ready. And maybe a therapist. My heart has been shattered into a million tiny pieces! How I looked while reading Kinslayer: Mr. Kristoff has outdone himself in this breathtaking sequel! Warning: This book is not rainbows and unicorns. It’s dark, desperate, and violent. Sometimes gory and disturbing. There is no HEA, horrible sacrifices are made, terrible […]

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: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I honestly don’t even know how to write this review. It was one of those books that was just so….something, I can’t even begin to put it into words. Here goes… First of all, the detail that Samantha Shannon put into the world building was incredible. Seriously, kudos to her! I can’t imagine the time that she had to have spent on it. The world in The Bone Season was very in depth and well thought out, with its own […]

Review: Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

Review: Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of romance, but I do enjoy them occasionally if they’re done well. Sadly, this one fell flat for me. My main problem was the characters. I couldn’t connect to Liam or Anna – in fact, they annoyed the crap out of me – and therefore I couldn’t bring myself to care about anything that was happening to them. It’s really not a good thing when you’re rooting for them to fail.  Sometimes […]

Review: PODs by Michelle Pickett

Review: PODs by Michelle Pickett

Huge thanks to Spencer Hill for providing a review copy! I very nearly DNF’ed this book in the first 20-30 pages. I managed to stick through it somehow – my masochistic nature? or morbid curiosity? who knows – and honestly, I wouldn’t have been missing much. I was really looking forward to reading this because of the idea, but the delivery was so lackluster that it all just fell flat for me. My first problem happened very early when Eva […]
