Review: Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Review: Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Hmm. I had a lot of mixed feelings about this one, so let me start with the bad (as per usual for me). The beginning dragged. A lot. There was waaaay too much teen angst and relationship drama for my tastes (I KNOW, it’s young adult. I know. But this was juvenile even for YA), which brought the story down quite a bit – for me, at least. It read too much like a typical and cliche horror movie: A […]

Review: The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee

Review: The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee

This book was totally creepy! It grabbed my attention right from the beginning and refused to let go. Suspenseful and chilling, I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, wondering what would happen next. I just want to get something off my mind right now before I go any further: I don’t know what’s up with killing felines in books lately, but it really needs to stop. It doesn’t add anything to the story except outrage (for […]

Review: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Review: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

I had some trouble getting into this one. To be honest, I wanted to put it down in the first half. I’m glad I didn’t, because the last quarter was pretty good! I think I was bored early on because there wasn’t much happening action-wise. This is only the second true zombie book I’ve read, and I was expecting an overload of flesh-eating zombies. But, they hardly had an appearance except for the very beginning and very end, which disappointed me […]

Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

I felt that this book was much too long for the content. It dragged on a bit for me, and I think if some of the filler had been cut out, I would have enjoyed it a lot more. There wasn’t much at all happening for the first ¾ of the book (and seeing as how it’s 500+ pages long, that’s a lot), just an occasional creeptastic part to pique my interest and make me wonder what would happen. I […]

Review: Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Review: Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Not gonna lie, I very nearly marked this as DNF about 200 pages through. I really should have. I was going to give myself another 40 pages, and by then I was so close to the end I just forced myself to finish the rest. Plus, I had heard a lot of people saying that the last half is worth it…NOT. It was the same dull, drab story all the way through for me. I think the real issue here […]

Review: Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis

Review: Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis

Knowing someone means you know who they were in the past. Anything else is just a glimmer of possibility, a distant hope, and probably wishful thinking.   Glimmer was a freaky book with a refreshingly original plot that kept me on my toes! It grabbed me right away with two strangers waking up in bed together with no recollection of how they got there or who they are. The memory loss of the narrators makes it so that you as a reader have no clue […]
