Oh lord. Honestly, I’m not sure how I even finished this book. Morbid curiosity? The need to see liars and cheaters have everything blow up in their faces? Who knows. But somehow I managed to stick it through to the end. So, the characters. Good God. I don’t think I’ve ever met so many characters I wanted to flog in one single book. So many vapid, shallow characters! We’ll start with Em. I despised her. With the fire of a […]

While the first book was good, I believe I enjoyed this one much more! It didn’t have a real lot of depth, but it was a cute and fun read. The fact that there are THREE changing points of view in this one really makes me appreciate Tera’s writing style. A few times I forgot momentarily who I was reading, but for the most part it was very well done. The voices were quite similar, but each of the girls […]

I love mythology! To be honest though, I didn’t really know anything about Norse mythology except what I saw in the movie Thor. Sad, I know. But I think that increased my enjoyment of Valkyrie Rising in the long run, because I got to learn a few things about Valkyries! It started off a bit slow, but I didn’t get bored because the mythology was enough to keep me interested. I had a bit of trouble connecting with the story at […]

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 […]
