Review: Still Waters

Review: Still Waters

November 17, 2012 Review 2 ★★★

Well. Wellllllll… I usually have pretty strong opinions when finishing a book, (cue agreeable scoffs) but this one made my mind pretty jumbled. Did I like this? Was this gold or a horrendously underdeveloped story of nonsense with plot holes? It took me about an hour of the above before I came to this brilliant conclusion: it’s both. Kinda. And […]

Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow

Review: The Book of Blood and Shadow

November 14, 2012 Review 5 ★½

I wanted to love this so much. It has such a great premise, and it could have been so much more. Wasserman’s other novels were awesome and I expected this one to be the same but it fell short. I kept reading it because I had high hopes it would become better-many reviews had said it was slow in the […]

Review: The Iron King

Review: The Iron King

November 11, 2012 Review 4 ★★★★½

This review has been a long time coming! By that I mean I should have read this as soon as it came out! I’m usually not one for faeries because they are portrayed as kind of cutesy/silly rather than the ones we read about in poems and myths. From these, I can say that the faeries in THE IRON KING […]

Review: Such A Rush

Review: Such A Rush

November 8, 2012 Review 0 ★★★

Leah Jones didn’t grow up in the best of circumstances, she’s always lived in a trailer near an airport. The constant sound of airplanes flying over her head became familiar and somewhat comforting, and even though it would drive others crazy, it drove Leah to action. She doesn’t know her father and her mother glides from man to man and […]

Manga Monday (#1) Review: Strobe Edge vol. 1

November 5, 2012 Review 8 ★★★★½

The Manga Mondays Meme is a awesome meme hosted by Alison Can Read! Yay, my first Manga Monday! Since I mainly review YA novels on here I wanted a chance to showcase other things I read in my spare time (like graphic novels) and I figured this was a perfect chance to do that without annoying everyone with constant manga […]

Review: Masque of the Red Death

Review: Masque of the Red Death

November 4, 2012 Review 8 ★★★★½

Don’t be fooled by the five star rating… This book is worth ten times as many stars. This novel is amazing, I fell in love with the characters and the plot; MASQUE OF RED DEATH has squeezed its way into my heart and into that pile of few novels I call “Favorites.” The author has created one of the best […]

Review: Leviathan

Review: Leviathan

October 31, 2012 Review 10 ★★★★½

Prepare for tons of gifs and hyphens! LEVIATHAN is probably the hardest novel I’ve had to review so far. This is because it is so completely different from anything I have ever read, it is a completely originally story that is based in 1914 and tells an alternate history of WWI where the feuding powers are Clankers (mechanical) and Darwinists […]
