Review: Broken (DAC)

Review: Broken (DAC)

February 4, 2013 Review 8 ½

Not weird in a good way either, but seriously kind of messed up. Let’s start with our main character, Emma. Her boyfriend has recently died and she’s still torn up apart it, visiting his “grave” every […]

ARC Review: Geek Girl (DAC)

February 2, 2013 Review 18 ★★★★

I don’t know why they just didn’t say it, the synopsisand plot dart around it until almost the very end. What if I was […]

Review: The Maze Runner

Review: The Maze Runner

January 24, 2013 Review 18 ★★★★

 I kind of dislike reviewing popular books that came out years before I got around to reading them. There are so many reviews already out there, and nothing I say will be anything not already heard. That aside I feel like I need to review this, mainly because of how surprisingly good it actually was. Part of what made me […]
