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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

This is one of those books – you know, the ones you really enjoy while you’re reading them…but when you’re done, you forget it almost immediately and it fades away. It wasn’t memorable, and ultimately that’s what lowered my rating. In the beginning, I thought this would be a 4 star book for me, easy. I was super on board with the blossoming romance between Mila and Hunter, despite not being a fan of romance. I actually kind of wanted more of […]

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 […]
