Review: Taste by Kate Evangelista

Review: Taste by Kate Evangelista

Before I read this, with the mention of Night and Day students I just couldn’t help myself…I immediately thought of this: So of course I was intrigued! It ended up being almost nothing like Vampire Knight, though, and I was pleasantly surprised at how unique the story was. I usually despise love triangles, but this one wasn’t bad at all. I gotta hand it to Phoenix, she stuck with her decision. It was never really a competition for her. And […]

Review: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Review: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Passion. Fate. Loyalty. Stupidity. This cover should be flagged for false advertisement. After all of the glowing reviews, I’m left to wonder….WHY DIDN’T I GET THE COPY THEY READ?! Ha ha, very funny, now where’s the REAL Tiger’s Curse?? The one that everybody LOVED because it was such an awesomely awesometastic book of awesome???? Guess the joke’s on me… Alright, where to start? First of all, the writing. GOOD LORD. Talk about sophomoric. I dealt with it for the first […]

Review: Croak by Gina Damico

Review: Croak by Gina Damico

How did I feel about this book? Meh. That about covers it. I couldn’t connect with Lex at all, and I didn’t particularly like her. It seemed like Gina was going for kick-ass heroine, but it didn’t work for Lex. She was unnecessarily violent to the point of being a bully. I didn’t find her ‘cool’ at all, I just felt like she tried to hard. Aside from being a bully, she was childish and selfish. While I did like […]

DNF Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

DNF Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

I may get flogged for this…but I couldn’t even bear to finish this one. There was so much hype and sooo many people marked this as 4 or 5 stars – which, frankly, I can’t see why – but it just was not for me. I knew going in that it was historical fiction, but decided to give it a try anyway (even though I hate anything historical), because it had such great reviews and ratings. But, after about 200 pages, […]

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I heard good things about this book, so I was reeeaaaally looking forward to reading it. I was most certainly not disappointed. Karou. Her name means hope. Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic. She’s an enigma – her hair grows blue from her scalp, she collects languages, and […]
