Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

“They work their discreet types of madness on us, power and pain, and we hold to our truths in the darkness.” I had major problems connecting with this book. Mainly to our lead, Grace. I got no feeling whatsoever from her. In fact, it seemed as if she didn’t have feelings. She was telling the story, but she never had any emotion. Therefore, I felt nothing. I was an onlooker to this story, not part of it. I like to experience […]

Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

I had very mixed feelings about this book. I think the thing I enjoyed most about it was how seriously twisted it was. It was very dark, and I liked that! But sadly, that was where the enjoyment ended. There was a scene in the beginning pissed me off to the point that I very nearly DNFed it. I wanted to throw my Kindle against a wall! Erin has a cat (named Clint Eastwood…and it’s a female. Wtf….) that has […]

Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Wow, this book is really hard to talk about without giving anything away! I mostly liked it while I was reading, but it didn’t wow me. I did like how twisted it was, though – that was the saving grace for this book. My main issue with this book is that it was horrendously predictable. There were also inconsistencies with the plot. The authority figures were portrayed as rather dumb and useless. Chase and Alice are constantly running around the […]

Review: Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

Review: Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

Despite the fact that parts of this felt like they were ripped off of Inception, I rather enjoyed this story! I love how twisted and dark the dream world was. That was by far my favorite part. There wasn’t much happening in Dea’s ordinary waking life, but somehow I never lost interest. The little snippets of the dream world were enough to keep me going! It was so twisted, and I love that. I found the world of dreams to […]

Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

I mentioned in my review of The Art of Lainey that I was really impressed by  how much Paula’s storytelling had improved since Venom. I was even more impressed with it in this one! The mystery aspect of this book was awesome! I really liked the secrets and lies – I love stories where the bad guy could be anyone, so you start to mistrust every single person in the story. This one was like that! At every turn I was wondering […]
