What a glorious end to an amazing series!! I really enjoyed it, but I’m very sad to see it go. I can’t believe I’ll never see Morph again :( I was so thrilled to jump back into the world that Howard creates! I didn’t realize how much I’d missed it. It’s sooo twisted…I love it! There were certain scenes where I was just like …..creeeeeepyyy…… and ok, I was a little disturbed. MORPHEUS. OMG. How I love him!! As always, I was […]

Let me just say this: I love Anita. LOVE. She’s one of the most awesome authors I’ve ever talked to! I enjoyed Splintered, but Unhinged was even better! And no, I’m not biased just because I like the author. The world is a deliciously macabre version of the original, and I was thrilled to dive back in! I love Anita’s writing. She can paint the scenes in my head vividly and beautifully! The world building is one of my favorite […]

I’ve only seen the first Alice movie once, forever ago, and I’ve never read the book. But I loooove retellings! Howard did a fantastic job at making Carroll’s twisted world even more twisted. I think the world-building was one of my favorite parts of this story, because as I was reading I was able to picture everything vividly in my mind. The imagery was beautiful! Let me just say one thing first….I. LOVE. MORPHEUS. Seriously. I am so Team Morpheus all […]

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I’ve been wanting to read this book forever, and with the depth of that desire and all the hype surrounding the book, I was afraid I was going to be disappointed. That was definitely not the case. Meyer painted a beautiful and vivid world that I enjoyed living in! This is only the second fairytale retelling that I’ve read (Beastly being the first). While there were a few similarities between Cinder and its inspiration, Cinderella (evil step-mother and two step-sisters, the shoe, […]

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies (other than The Lion King, of course), so naturally I enjoyed this book and I recommend it to any other fans of the Disney movie. It doesn’t quite live up to the original, but it was a cute and quick read! The way Kyle acted in the beginning made me sick. He is under the impression that ‘ugly’ people are worthless and that the so-called beautiful people are the […]
