Review: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Review: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

December 27, 2012 Review 19 ★★★★

OF POSEIDON gets many mixed reviews. Looking through them on Goodreads I found the majority being four/five stars or just one. I am on the four stars side, I enjoyed the novel’s strengths far more than I opposed its weaknesses. Yes, a character dies near the beginning of the novel. Was it necessary? Maybe not, but at least the main […]

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

December 20, 2012 Review 11 ★★★

First of all, let me say that this book talks about some touchy subjects such as kidnapping and polygamy. It is Young Adult and deals with them in a way that is appropriate for the age of the genre but if such things bother you, stray away from the novel. You will not like it. I’m a pretty open person […]

December 17, 2012 Review 18 ★★★★★

SHADOW AND BONE has easily made its way onto my self as my favorite book of 2012, and that’s a lot of books. 150 so far, to be precise. This book could make unicorns cry. It’s that amazing. It also has one of the best villains I have read about: the Darkling. His character alone should be reason enough for […]

December 16, 2012 Review 9 ★★★

I had somewhat of a hard time rating this novel. Part of me wants to give it five stars because I enjoyed reading it that much. But another part of me recognizes there are some flaws and things I did not like and is why I ended up giving INCARNATE three stars. The romance overshadows the plot for the majority […]

December 14, 2012 Review 7 ★★★★★

I seem to have become a habit that I really like books that most people just find average at best.I don’t know how well this review will turn out, considering how bad I am at conveying why I love books. It’s easy to explain why a book is awful, but my brain turns all mushy and gets off track on […]

Review: The Gathering

Review: The Gathering

December 9, 2012 Review 14 ★★★

I really love Kelley Armstrong’s novels, especially the Darkest Powers trilogy, because they have a young adult plot with substance. By this I mean they actually have a solid mystery and background and originality behind what would otherwise be a typical young adult book. I pretty much only picked this up because of my faith in Kelley Armstrong’s writing.   […]
