October 19, 2012 Meme 44

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?    A: Well my usual genre is young adult fiction, I’ll read almost anything and everything. I tend not to stray away and try new things […]

October 17, 2012 Review 12 ★★★½

 For awhile on Goodreads, this was one of the few books that I kept seeing more and more often. People seemed to love it but I never gave it more than a, “Eh, I’ll get to it someday.” Then finally I saw it at the library and picked it up on a whim. I’m glad I did because this was […]

October 13, 2012 Review 9 ★★★★

This is somewhat of a hard review to write because my feelings about the novel changed throughout the storyline, the end being very strong and emotional. The book begins with Stephanie Barrano in her freshman year. She meets Jordan, a senior, and she falls hard quickly. The problem I had with this is the age difference. In my experience, a […]

This was not a good book to read directly after Grave Mercy. Why? Because even trying to compare this shallow, weak heroine with the heroine in Grave Mercy is blasphemy. Sorry everyone, this is going to be a somewhat rant-y review. This novel is just… bad. After about the third time a “reaper” demon is compared to some expensive car […]

  It is not very often (especially nowadays) that you fall in love with a book in the young adult genre. Grave Mercy is the type of book that makes you look at all other books with sadness because they can not live up to your expectations. In fact, you will be so disappointed you will never want to read […]

 Halo was an okay book for me so I decided to just read the sequel. I thought everything that was sort of well, bad, would be sorted out in this one. Like learning from your mistakes. This did not happen. Hades started out to be an interesting read, then a tedious one, then a just plain weird one. The Interesting […]

Alrighty. Before you go off and grab the popcorn let me say that this is not a totally negative review. This is a un-stereotypical review of a stereotypical novel. My opinion of this book differs from the average review. I somewhat liked this book. Now don’t think that I loved this book and lose all hope in me because I […]
