Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Review: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

CAUTION: SPOILERS! I am seriously becoming so addicted to this series! I feel like each book gets better and better, and now I can definitely see why everyone was saying that the books were way better than the movies. There’s so many little wonderful details in the books! I must say, I’m kind of upset that I was robbed of the feeling I should have felt at the death of Sirius Black. I knew he was going to die at […]

Review: The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett

Review: The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett

I had been seeing some meh reviews for this one, so I was a bit leery going in. But I was surprised by how much enjoyed it! The concept is so unique, and while the whole school murder mystery isn’t all that original, the world was. And there was humor! I giggled plenty of times at Dusty’s sarcasm. I do love a book that can make me laugh. The story had a strong start with Dusty’s break-in, and I was […]

Review: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Review: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

I was sure going into this one that I was going to enjoy it. EVERYONE loved it (seemed like it, anyway). Sadly, I was wrong. Again. *sigh* It seems like I’m always the black sheep when it comes to books with a lot of hype. Don’t get me wrong, this book wasn’t terrible. I gave it 2.5 – which for me is somewhere in between ‘it was ok’ and ‘I liked it.’ Because although I mostly just felt ‘meh’ about […]

Review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

WOWZA. What a stunning, glorious, heart-breaking end to a fantabulous series! Rachel Hawkins really knows how to bring it! From the first page to the very last, I loved every minute and didn’t want to put it down. I do believe Sophie is one of my favorite female leads. I LOVE THIS GIRL. She’s strong and witty and she jokes at the worst moments possible to cover up any weaknesses she feels.  If she were a real person, we’d be biffles! […]

Review: Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

Review: Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

What is it with cheesy romances lately? Ugh. Honestly, this book could have easily been a 4 or 5 star if the instaluv hadn’t ruined it for me. I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first, because the premise for this one was AWESOME. First of all, before I even met Dante I was bracing myself for a cliche romance. Eleanor was talking about him and saying how he was devastatingly gorgeous, keeps to himself, and everyone […]

Review: Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter

Review: Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter

So Kylie comes from a dysfunctional family…in the beginning, her parents (who I really just want to punch in the face repeatedly) are getting a divorce. She gets busted for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets shipped off to a camp of supernaturals. She has no idea that it’s actually a camp for supernaturals, so when she starts meeting her campmates things get a little freaky. But then the camp leader, Holiday, pulls her aside […]
