**Possible spoilers** I loved seeing all the characters come together! I think that’s my favorite thing about this series, is that each book tells a different story yet they’re all tied together. I love the backstories of all of them, especially Winter! The scene with Thorne and Cress in the castle gave me warm fuzzies! “I would have killed every one of them to get to you. I would have done anything to get you back. Knowing that we were […]

I knew what I was getting into when I picked this book up – I’ve seen tons of people talk about how disturbing it was to be in Levana’s head, and many were uncomfortable about it. I was seriously looking forward to diving into the darkness of her thoughts. I wanted twisted and disturbing. Honestly, I was a little disappointed with it. Queen Levana is twisted and disturbing, yes, but wanted to feel that darkness. I wanted it to make me […]

I’m going to be honest, I only picked this up to see what all the fuss was about. Not that it didn’t sound interesting, but I probably would have never given this book a second thought based on the cover. After seeing everyone RAVING about it, and even hearing Mindee Arnett mention it at a book signing, I knew I had to get my hands on it. And I did enjoy it. But, I’m afraid the hype might have lessened […]

I’m going to be honest, Cress annoyed the crap out of me. Out of all three of the main characters introduced in this series so far, she is by far my least favorite (with my favorite being Scarlet, of course). She was so naive, and annoying, and immature – I mean, I understand she’s been locked away for a long time, but…ugh. I can only handle so much, okay? Her constant daydreams started grating on my nerves. Not so much the […]

With all of the GLOWING reviews of this book, everyone raving about how amazing it was, how amazing Tamlin was, I was DYING to get my hands on a copy. I would have almost bargained my first born to get my hands on it. I begged Twitter if anyone would let me borrow it. (Thank you Kelly for letting me borrow yours!) And the fact that I didn’t love it like everyone else is kind of soul-crushing. (It has a […]

Mini Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Thorne reminded me sooo much of Flynn Rider!! (So obviously, I loved him immediately.) Scarlet was so awesome! She is definitely my favorite of the series (I read Cress before writing this review). I loved her snark! She was also fiercely loyal to her friends. I absolutely loved that Scarlet defended Cinder before she met her! The best part of this book was definitely everyone coming together, because it’s what I was waiting for the whole book. The wolf hybrids […]
