I love mythology. A lot. And although I haven’t read up on the Persephone myth all that much, it fascinates me. I was sure I was going to love this. So sure. Perhaps I set my expectations sky high, or perhaps there was too much hype for this book, but I was extremely disappointed. My main problem? Kate. I couldn’t stand her. She was alright in the first half or so, average and nothing special to speak of…but not necessarily irritating, […]

Oh. My. Wow! I am currently speechless, please give me 3.5 seconds…… Okay. Ahem. So, um, this book rocked my socks. It was fast-paced, action-packed, and full of twists and turns. The stakes are high and nothing is what it seems. And boy, did everything go to hell in a handbasket… Mr. Knight really knows how to play your emotions! I felt a vast array of them – shock, horror, sadness, joy, regret. Mostly shock. This book was a rollercoaster […]

It seems like lately I’ve been disappointed in books that everyone is raving about. I’m not saying I didn’t like this one, because I did. I just didn’t love it the way I hoped I would. Obsidian still remains my favorite Armentrout novel! I don’t really have much to say about this book, sadly. I liked the premise, I liked the characters, I just wasn’t wowed by it. Alex was a pretty cool lead, but I didn’t really feel a […]

I ordered this book from Amazon about 6 months ago after it came out. I kept meaning to read it, but after reading a few really bad reviews I just kept putting it off. My thoughts after finishing? Why did I wait so long to make my own opinion?!?! Charles Xavier, meet Percy Jackson. I loved it! I must confess that when I read it (even after owning it for months), I had absolutely no clue about the mythology tied […]

Good. Lord. You have no idea how glad I am to finally be done with  this book. So many times I thought about giving up and parting ways, but by some sick and twisted compulsion I had to finish it. I have so many complaints about this book that I kinda don’t even want to do this review.   I hated Theia. With the fire of a thousand suns. I’m talking hate like, if-I-ever-met-you-I’d-stab-you-in-the-eye-with-a-rusty-fork hate. She was a boring person […]

A lot of times, when you see a book cover this beautiful, it’s compensating for something – as in, the lack of story in between the covers. This was not the case with Everneath. The story was just as beautiful as the cover. It broke my heart and crushed my soul. Like a grape. Okay, hold the phone, now I have to share a video… This whole clip is great, but I’m embedding it for a certain few seconds, 1:12 […]
