This book and I had a love/hate relationship. On one hand, I kind of hated it. The writing was HORRIBLY sophomoric, the interactions were juvenile, and the action scenes weren’t really believable. The writing didn’t sell the story. I think this had the potential to be an awesome book if the execution had been better. The beginning was rough for me. I was really struggling for a while. The attempt at humor was so ridiculous it had me rolling my eyes and […]

Wow. WOW. Book twin Octavia has been telling me forever that I need to read this because it was amazing. She was so right! I was blown away by Bishop’s world. On the surface, it seems like it’s UF. But it’s SO much more than that! It’s hard to really categorize it, honestly. It’s more of High Fantasy than UF because while it’s similar to our world, it isn’t. It’s a made up world. But it doesn’t have a High […]

This book was just….there. It wasn’t bad necessarily, but it wasn’t really all that good either. I felt NOTHING while reading. Absolutely nothing. No intrigue, no disgust (and there were plenty of disgusting things), no emotion whatsoever. Not good. I think that’s what ultimately scored such a low rating for this book is that I didn’t give a crap about the story or the characters. Even when things were actually happening I didn’t care. There was no anticipation, no suspense. The whole abductura […]

I will try my best not to include spoilers outside of spoiler tags, but it is very difficult to talk about without spoiling anything, so beware! I say this in every review of a Julie Kagawa book: Julie cannot write a bad book. It’s just not possible. There hasn’t been a single book she’s written that I didn’t love, and this one was no exception!! I was sad to see this trilogy end, but I loved the way everything was wrapped […]

I really don’t think Julie could write a bad book if she tried. I have yet to read anything of hers that I didn’t love, and this was no exception! As far as vampire books go, this one is definitely one of the best I’ve ever read. Even better than the first book! Fast pacing and high action combine for a gripping, edge of your seat read! Something Julie is flippin’ amazing at is characterization. Each character has their own […]

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 […]
