Review: Matched

Review: Matched

August 29, 2012 Review 2 ★★★★

  This will be fairly short but I just wanted to share some quick thoughts on Matched even though everyone and their brother has already read it. First off, the idea behind this was great. I remember being at a Target about a year ago and being torn between buying Matched or Divergent and I bought Matched because I’m a […]

Review: Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan

August 27, 2012 Review 2 ★★★★½

First let me say if it weren’t for a Goodreads contest I would have never gotten the opportunity to read the first in the series, Glow. These novels were so out of my normal genre I probably would have never picked them up. What a mistake I would have made because these are amazing. Even if you don’t like books […]

August 19, 2012 Review 4 ★★★★½

  Wow. This novel was amazing. Now before you get the idea that this review is all about praising how awesome it was and unicorns-rainbows-fairytales let me say I really did not like this at first.     The way it’s written made me so frustrated at first. Like on the cover, the words being crossed out made a frequent appearance […]

Characters. You’ll be able to relate to them and their relationships. Even the takes-everything-in-stride lead had some realistic qualities and quirks. Skye, the lead of which I speak of, didn’t seem all too concerned about the strange happenings around her. Although I liked how she took charge to find answers, if my eyes turned bright silver and I shortage out […]

July 31, 2012 Review 3 ★★★★

I originally only picked this up out of pure curiosity, reviews on it were definitely scattered and I had wanted nothing to do with novels that added unnecessary sequels. I decided to suck it up and just read it. The first three books were great, in my opinion, so this one had to have some redeeming qualities-they were written by […]

Review: Destined

July 28, 2012 Review 12 ★★★★

I went into this with a really open mind because I had essentially given up the series. I chose to write this review because I assumed there were other people like me that had given up on the series but a little part of them still wondered what they were missing. Let me tell you, you’re missing something good here. […]

Review: Saving June

Review: Saving June

July 23, 2012 Review 6 ★★★★

 I try to avoid the usual mother/father/sister/brother death plot that’s typically paired with a bad boy, a best friend, and a road trip. Although this book contains all those things it really seemed original and genuine. You will really connect with the characters, especially Harper, who has her own faults that we can relate to. I did not like the […]
