Review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

Review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

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 […]

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

I was not a wolf, but I wasn’t Sam yet, either. I was a leaking womb bulging with the promise of conscious thoughts: the frozen woods far behind me, the girl on the tire swing, the sound of fingers on metal strings. The future and the past, both the same, snow and then summer and then snow again. A shattered spider’s web of many colors, cracked in ice, immeasurably sad. “Sam,” the girl said, “Sam.” She was past present future. […]

Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Sigh. I feel like it makes me a leper for saying this, but I wasn’t impressed with this one. Let me just say right now, I absolutely LOVED Obsidian. It’s on my favorites shelf. So, I was quite dismayed when this one just didn’t cut it for me. My main issue is that I’m so ridiculously sick of “immediate connections.” There’s no such thing as love at first sight; that’s called LUST people!! Ugh. The use of the L word […]

Review: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

Review: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

AHHHH!!! This book was incredible. This one is a new favorite for me! Why oh why did I wait so frickin’ long to read it?! It’s been sitting on my shelf for months…if not over a year. I was really missing out! I’m going to start with Alex. Oh, Alex! I’m totally in love with Alex! *fans self* He was amazing. A few times I kinda wanted to slap him because he acted like such a buttface, but overall he […]

Early Review: Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire

Early Review: Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire

Oh my, where do I start? This book was so wonderful!! I’ve been stuck in this horrible rut of mediocre books with vomit-inducing romances for so long that I was beginning to think it was just me. But as it turns out, it isn’t! I loved this one from start to finish. It opens with Annie getting totally shot down by some buttface jock and I immediately saw her as a kindred spirit, because let’s face it – I was […]

Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

I’m sorry to say that this is another one that I had to force myself to finish. Through some morbid compulsion, I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. I suppose I was hoping it would get better and have some redeeming qualities, perhaps an unexpected twist or two towards the end, but nope. This book was very predictable. I felt zero surprise, zero joy, and all in all zero emotion. I found myself procrastinating by doing something, anything to […]
