Writing reviews for books that didn’t give you much passion either way is very difficult. This is one of those books, sadly. I’m having trouble pinpointing the issue here. The idea behind Insomnia was fantastic, really. Being able to see the dreams of the last person you made eye contact with? Such an interesting concept! But I felt totally ‘meh’ through the whole book. I just couldn’t connect with the story at all. Or our main character, Parker. (I already […]

I do love the occasional mystery, and this one was pretty darn good! It gave you several options without giving away the ending. I have to admit, while I suspected the person at one point (although I suspected a couple different people), I didn’t figure it out until the end. I love that it wasn’t predictable! I tend to figure things out before the characters do, so it was refreshing to be surprised. Norcut says that was probably why my […]

First of all, the idea for this book is brilliant! Emotions are people? Yes please!! And our main character couldn’t feel any of them. It was kind of strange at times, because emotions are so natural that it was hard to imagine not feeling any at all. The only problem with that was, there were times when it should have been a very emotional scene; yet because Liz didn’t feel anything, neither did I. She was an emotional robot. I loved the […]

Another Little Piece was dark and rather twisted, and I think that’s why I enjoyed it. It was kinda f*cked up at times, and sometimes I wondered what the heck I was reading, but in a good way! Every time I found another piece of the past, I wasn’t remembering it so much as reliving it. I like the way the story was told, with little snippets of flashbacks mixed in with the present. I saw a lot of complaints […]

I knew going in that I would enjoy this: Anything Virals is sure to be fun and action-packed. This one was no disappointment! Tory is the same kick-ass leader that I loved in the first two books. She fights for what she believes in and doesn’t give up! I like the whole ragtag pack; nerdy and practical Shelton, enthusiastic Hi, stoic Ben (who kinda disappointed me at one point), and even the adorable furry Coop. They each had their own […]

**Huge thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review!  I really enjoyed this one while I was reading it, but looking back I realize: It didn’t make a lasting impression. Which saddens me. The details are already foggy and I have to struggle to remember certain things. But it is an engrossing read, because of the mystery aspect of it. I liked Lily, but I didn’t connect with her quite as much as I’d hoped to. Plus, there were times […]
