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 […]

Review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

This was a re-read for me – it’s been a couple years since I last read it, and I had pretty much forgotten everything except for the very end. Looking back, I wondered why I gave it 4 stars, but reading again I realized why. While it’s not exactly memorable, it was enjoyable while I was reading it! First of all, this book is a romance. We all know how Jessi feels about romance. But, it wasn’t bad at all. […]

Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

My feelings about this were so hot and cold that I felt the need to make an infographic for it: My hate is stronger than the dimensions, stronger than memory, stronger than time. My hate is now the truest part of who I am. I was SO onboard with this story in the beginning. The prologue blew me away and completely grabbed my attention. Then we enter a futuristic feeling, technologically advanced London. And it was AWESOME! I loved the world, […]

Review: Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Review: Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Rating this book was a huge struggle, because I can’t even pin down exactly how I feel about it. As you can see from my Overall Assessment, my ratings are all over the place, so overall I just feel confused about the impression this book on me. I almost didn’t even rate the ‘feels’ category because I didn’t know whether to give it a high feels rating for pissing me off so much or give it a zero for the same reason. […]
