Blog Tour (Review) Barbie Girl

Blog Tour (Review) Barbie Girl

February 20, 2013 Blog Tour, Review 14 ★★★

I definitely had mixed feelings about BARBIE GIRL. At first, I was confused and didn’t really connect to Barbie, she seemed way too nonchalant about the rumors spread about her-she fueled them every chance she got. We are told why, which isn’t really an explanation, but it made me like Barbie more. A lot of people were commenting on the […]

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight

February 15, 2013 Review 12 ★★★★★

My review of the first novel in this series can be found HERE. DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT is better than its precessor, and even I didn’t think there was room for improvement-but Laini Taylor makes a sequel that is actually just as magnificent. More action, more romance, more secrets, more adventure, more horror, more everything! There is literally something […]

Review: Level 2 (DAC)

Review: Level 2 (DAC)

February 12, 2013 Review 10 ★★

If you have read in my review of SPLINTERED, then you know I love originality-especially in YA. While LEVEL 2 brings this, it falls short in other categories, leaving much to be desired. Its major downfall was the concept of memories, which are basically cleverly designed flashbacks. “The point is to keep trying new things, meeting new people, visiting new […]

Mini Review: A Shimmer of Angels (DAC)

Mini Review: A Shimmer of Angels (DAC)

February 10, 2013 Review 14

So I am actually going to take a cop-out here, and refer you over to my friend, Zuleeza, who said my feelings for this book perfectly. You can read her review here. But if you want my specific thoughts, hang around!  This book is a common, cliche angel novel. The concept behind it is great, people thinking Rayna is crazy […]

Review: Splintered (DAC)

February 7, 2013 Review 15 ★★★★½

  SPLINTERED is a modern retelling of the classic Lewis Carroll tale, ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Alyssa Gardner’s ancestor was none other than the original Alice of the famous story, but this version is darker, creepier, and deliciously evil. Alyssa’s mother lives in a mental hospital, for hearing voices that aren’t there and seeing things that aren’t real. The problem is, […]
