Did I mention I love this series? It’s so incredibly addicting and sticks with you long after you’ve read the book. The world of the Mortal Instruments is beautifully and realistically painted, magical and enchanting – even the second time around, I’m engrossed in the series! The stakes are even higher in this one with Valentine and his terrifying and sinister agenda. But is it really a surprise? He does evil so well! He’s so fanatical about his beliefs it’s […]

This is the second time I’ve read this book. I just bought City of Lost Souls, so I’m re-reading the whole MI series before I start on that one. It’s hard for me to write this review because it’s hard to be objective about something you already had an opinion of. I loved the series the first time and I enjoyed this one just as much the second time around. It’s a fast paced and easy read, full of twists […]

To be honest, I’ve been dreading writing this review. These are the hardest to write for me, reviews for those books that don’t spark any passion toward love or hate at all. It’s not that I thought this was a bad book…it’s still 3 starfish for me, but I guess I just couldn’t connect. The plot was decent and the ideas were fresh – I haven’t read anything else like it before. The ideas such as the Hollow, Grays, nexus, […]

WOWZA. What a stunning, glorious, heart-breaking end to a fantabulous series! Rachel Hawkins really knows how to bring it! From the first page to the very last, I loved every minute and didn’t want to put it down. I do believe Sophie is one of my favorite female leads. I LOVE THIS GIRL. She’s strong and witty and she jokes at the worst moments possible to cover up any weaknesses she feels.  If she were a real person, we’d be biffles! […]

**CAUTION: Possible spoilers for Hex Hall if you have not read it!!** Holy hell weasel, this book was just as good (if not better) than Hex Hall!! Hawkins really brings it in the second installment with even more twists, danger, and betrayal. There were so many things I never saw coming! Demonglass was riveting, particularly in the last quarter – and okay, I admit it, I got a little misty in certain parts. But it also made me giggle a […]

I devoured this book within 3 hours. I think that’s a record for me! I don’t finish a book in one day very often, but it usually takes me 4 or 5 hours for a 300 page book. Hex Hall was just that amazing!   I loved Sophie. She was a very easy lead to relate to – seemingly average, not the most popular and maybe even a bit nerdy. She was strong willed and sarcastic, and even though she […]
