3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

March 3, 2017 Review 24 ★★

When I saw Stephanie Meyer was writing another adult novel I was immediately interested. While I have mixed feelings about TWILIGHT, I actually really enjoyed THE HOST and this book seemed up a similar alley. However, my feelings for THE CHEMIST were closer to how I felt about TWILIGHT. Suspension of Disbelief While you could tell that Meyer put a […]

February 26, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★

5 Things About Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

February 17, 2017 Review 18 ★★½

Meh Once upon a time I tried to read REIGN OF SHADOWS and didn’t get past the first chapter because of boredom. I decided to give it another go and actually managed to finish it, however my reading experience wasn’t fantastic. I just couldn’t bring myself to care for some of the characters, and there were so many cliched lines. […]
