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. […]

Mini Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Mini Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

I absolutely loved The Winner’s Curse. I’m sad to say that some of the magic was lost for me somewhere between that book and this sequel. I felt like there was nothing happening plot-wise. This book is a romance. Nothing more. The entire story was solely Arin and Kestrel pining for one another, and the hardships they faced that kept them apart. And yeah, it sucked, but I didn’t connect to this one nearly as much as I did to the first […]

Review: The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Review: The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

It has been a very, very long time since a book has disappointed me so much. It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. *sighs dramatically* I liked the first book, but didn’t love it. The second book was really good, and I liked it much better. After seeing review after review, RAVING about this book and how incredible it was, and seeing people’s WTF status updates, I expected this book to be mind blowing. Maybe because […]

Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

As far as series endings go, I felt like this one was kind of mediocre. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. Just not as much as the rest of the series. I feel like not much really happened in this book. In fact, it moved a little bit slow and I was pretty bored in the first half. There were only two scenes that really stuck out to me, and in turn those were the only two […]
