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 […]

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.
