Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

December 30, 2012 Review 15 ★★★½

Cinder is our protagonist, our Cinderella. As if being verbally abused and treated as a slave like the original wasn’t enough, Cinder is a cyborg-meaning parts of her are robotic. This was a little disturbing and I would have disliked it had I not realized how much humanity Cinder has in her. She wants to be human. Cinder works as […]

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 […]

Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

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 […]
