Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Took me long enough, right?! I was honestly afraid to read this book because of the hype surrounding it. (Curse being a black sheep.) Thankfully I didn’t hate it like I was afraid I would, but it still didn’t blow me away like I was hoping. Actually, I’m still kind of on the fence about this book. I did really enjoy it while I was reading, but I have some reservations. I love that Stephanie captures that feeling. You know, the […]

Review: Gambit by C.L. Denault

Review: Gambit by C.L. Denault

I have very mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I loved the idea of it, but on the other, it didn’t really stand out. I found this book to be forgettable. Already the details are slipping away, I’m afraid. What I did love was the idea of the Surge and the skills or abilities that came from them. Very cool! Willow’s ability to manipulate elements was awesome. (Sadly, though, I forget already what her second skill was…) I […]

Review: Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter

Review: Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter

My major issue with this book was with Cole and Ali’s relationship. It was so hot and cold that I got mental whiplash! I mean, the breakup part of it was very realistic. Having just gone through a breakup myself, it made me sick to my stomach to read it, because I knew what Ali was feeling. But sometimes they were so ridiculous I wanted to bash their heads together! I couldn’t see any real reason for the way Cole was acting. […]

Mini Review: The Trials by Stacey Kade

Mini Review: The Trials by Stacey Kade

A special thank you to Hyperion for providing a copy for review! While I still didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first book, it was better than the 2nd! It was a good ending to a very interesting trilogy. I figured Zane was going to end up like Ariane in this book! It still kinda sucked though, that St. John used him as a weapon. I can imagine what it was like for Ariane when he walked into […]

Review: Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

Review: Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

I think I mentioned in my review of Between the Lines that I would have never looked twice at these books based off of the covers. This one is better than the last, but it still doesn’t scream “Young Adult fantasy” to me. But I’m very glad I received this one for review, because I really enjoyed it! I am highly impressed by how much the writing style improved from the last book. (Part of that may be because two heads are […]

Review: Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

Review: Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

I’m going to be honest, this is a book I would never have picked up on my own. The cover just screams “contemporary” and I’m not a big contemp reader. I also wouldn’t have pegged it as YA. Not to mention the average Goodreads rating is only 3.53, which typically scares me away from reading. But, I got the companion/sequel novel, Off the Page, from the publisher for review and everyone told me that I should read this one first. […]
