Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Going into this book, I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did! This book surprised me in a good way! I absolutely loved the format. It’s told in alternating POVs – one being Sadie, the other being a podcast. It was SO cool!! And the way it was written keeps you interested and makes this book unputdownable! I gobbled it up in one single sitting, which is something I haven’t done in ages. […]

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Did I read an entirely different book than everyone else read?! I am 1000% disappointed in this. This is the second Kiersten white novel that didn’t work for me, and I confess I’m starting to lose faith in her books. For being a rather short book, it was INSANELY boring. Basically nothing happened for 95% of this book. The first exciting scene is nearly 70 pages in (in the ARC, anyway), then the next thing to happen is yet another […]

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 […]
