Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

**Possible spoilers** I loved seeing all the characters come together! I think that’s my favorite thing about this series, is that each book tells a different story yet they’re all tied together. I love the backstories of all of them, especially Winter! The scene with Thorne and Cress in the castle gave me warm fuzzies! “I would have killed every one of them to get to you. I would have done anything to get you back. Knowing that we were […]

Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

I’m going to be honest, I only picked this up to see what all the fuss was about. Not that it didn’t sound interesting, but I probably would have never given this book a second thought based on the cover. After seeing everyone RAVING about it, and even hearing Mindee Arnett mention it at a book signing, I knew I had to get my hands on it. And I did enjoy it. But, I’m afraid the hype might have lessened […]

Review: Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

Review: Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

I’m going to be honest, this is a book I would never have picked up on my own. The cover just screams “contemporary” and I’m not a big contemp reader. I also wouldn’t have pegged it as YA. Not to mention the average Goodreads rating is only 3.53, which typically scares me away from reading. But, I got the companion/sequel novel, Off the Page, from the publisher for review and everyone told me that I should read this one first. […]

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

I’m going to be honest, Cress annoyed the crap out of me. Out of all three of the main characters introduced in this series so far, she is by far my least favorite (with my favorite being Scarlet, of course). She was so naive, and annoying, and immature – I mean, I understand she’s been locked away for a long time, but…ugh. I can only handle so much, okay? Her constant daydreams started grating on my nerves. Not so much the […]

Mini Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Mini Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Thorne reminded me sooo much of Flynn Rider!! (So obviously, I loved him immediately.) Scarlet was so awesome! She is definitely my favorite of the series (I read Cress before writing this review). I loved her snark! She was also fiercely loyal to her friends. I absolutely loved that Scarlet defended Cinder before she met her! The best part of this book was definitely everyone coming together, because it’s what I was waiting for the whole book. The wolf hybrids […]

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I’ve been wanting to read this book forever, and with the depth of that desire and all the hype surrounding the book, I was afraid I was going to be disappointed. That was definitely not the case. Meyer painted a beautiful and vivid world that I enjoyed living in! This is only the second fairytale retelling that I’ve read (Beastly being the first). While there were a few similarities between Cinder and its inspiration, Cinderella (evil step-mother and two step-sisters, the shoe, […]
