Review: Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini

Review: Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini

Oh jeez, this book is going to be very hard to rate. As you can see from my Overall Assessment breakdown, I was very torn on ratings. While the idea, the plot, the world, and the originality were great; the writing style, characters, and feels were not so great. Pretty bad, in fact. In the beginning the book mostly just annoyed me (sometimes straight ticked me off), but it did get better toward the end. My main issue was that […]

DNF Review: Half Bad by Sally Green

DNF Review: Half Bad by Sally Green

Breathtaking, my ass. The only thing “breathtaking” about this book is the cover. Shame on me for falling for that again. I made it to page 77 before I just couldn’t take it anymore. Stabbing myself in the leg would have been more enjoyable.   First of all, the writing was HORRIBLY sophomoric. Why is this labeled YA? It seriously needs to be labeled as a MG book, because it reads like one. It’s sad when you’re so distracted by editing […]

Review: House of Ivy and Sorrow by Natalie Whipple

Review: House of Ivy and Sorrow by Natalie Whipple

Always in the shadows, draped in ivy and sorrow, the house waits for a child too daring for his own good. Yes, this book was kind of fluffy, but there was a decent undercurrent of darkness that I loved. Maybe it didn’t quite achieve the ominous feeling that the name implies, but it had its fair share of seriousness. I absolutely LOVED the magic of this story! I loved that there was always a high price for magic and I feel as […]

Review: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

Review: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

I had heard many people saying that this had nothing to do with Hex Hall whatsoever, even though it was a spin-off, so I knew going in that there would be none of the characters I loved so much from Rachel’s first trilogy. And they were right – Sophie was only mentioned twice in passing – but that’s okay. I still enjoyed the world! And while it didn’t quite hold the magic that Hex Hall did, it was still a […]

Review: Changeling by Yasmine Galenorn

Review: Changeling by Yasmine Galenorn

Yasmine Galenorn is so talented at creating a convincing, realistic world! I love to live in the world she paints; it’s my favorite part of this book for sure. I didn’t enjoy Changeling quite as much as I enjoyed Witchling, but it was still a good entertaining read. Delilah is my favorite of the three D’Artigo sisters because, after all, she’s a werecat. And anybody who knows anything about me knows I LOOOOVE cats! I was really looking forward to reading […]

Review: Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn

Review: Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn

I’ve been wanting to read this series for a while…and this isn’t the first time I’ve read Witchling. But, it was a loooong time ago and I had pretty much forgotten everything – except that I enjoyed it – so it was almost like reading it again for the first time. It’s a world I love to live in; exciting and magical, filled with all sorts of fantasy creatures imaginable! That was my favorite part: Meeting all of the vamps, […]
