DNF Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

DNF Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Oh good flippin’ lord. I’m quite proud of myself for making it 65%, honestly. (Keep in mind that this book is FOUR HUNDRED AND NINETY TWO PAGES LONG. Almost five hundred pages of NOTHING.) This book was slow. Painfully so. There was absolutely nothing happening in the entire first half of this book. It was just Lia being a bartender and talking to thinking about the *adopts high-pitched breathy voice* two handsome, swoon-worthy gentlemen that stumbled into the tavern. Seriously. […]

Review: Empire of Shadows by Miriam Forster

Review: Empire of Shadows by Miriam Forster

I knew going in that this was a companion novel and not an actual sequel. I was a little worried that it wouldn’t be the same without Nisha and *coughs* JERRIT, but this book was still awesome. First of all, the setting was magnificent! Miriam is a pro at bringing a world to life. She has just the right amount of detail without making the story boring. There were also little snippets of history and teachings in between the chapters that […]

Review: Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Review: Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Rating this book was a huge struggle, because I can’t even pin down exactly how I feel about it. As you can see from my Overall Assessment, my ratings are all over the place, so overall I just feel confused about the impression this book on me. I almost didn’t even rate the ‘feels’ category because I didn’t know whether to give it a high feels rating for pissing me off so much or give it a zero for the same reason. […]

DNF Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien

DNF Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien

This isn’t the first Caragh O’Brien book I’ve tried. I attempted to read Birthmarked maybe 2 years ago, and DNFed it after 20-30 pages because it just wasn’t catching my interest. I had the same problem with this one. After only 8% I was already bored to tears, but I told myself I would give it until 20% before making a decision to see if it improved. It didn’t. I read nearly 90 pages of this book before I decided to […]

Review: Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

Review: Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

This is a hard review to write, because this book inspired absolutely nothing for me. No emotion, no interest, nothing. Overall, this book was just ‘meh.’ Maybe even less than that. It’s not that I hated it, but I didn’t really like it either. This book was just….there. It won’t leave a lasting impression and I probably won’t remember anything about it a month down the road. Honestly, it was a struggle to finish it. The characters were flat and I couldn’t […]

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 […]
