Review: Days of Blood and Starlight

February 15, 2013 Review 12 ★★★★★

My review of the first novel in this series can be found HERE. DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT is better than its precessor, and even I didn’t think there was room for improvement-but Laini Taylor makes a sequel that is actually just as magnificent. More action, more romance, more secrets, more adventure, more horror, more everything! There is literally something […]

Mini Review: A Shimmer of Angels (DAC)

February 10, 2013 Review 14

So I am actually going to take a cop-out here, and refer you over to my friend, Zuleeza, who said my feelings for this book perfectly. You can read her review here. But if you want my specific thoughts, hang around! ¬†This book is a common, cliche angel novel. The concept behind it is great, people thinking Rayna is crazy […]

Review: Splintered (DAC)

February 7, 2013 Review 15 ★★★★½

¬† SPLINTERED is a modern retelling of the classic Lewis Carroll tale, ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Alyssa Gardner’s ancestor was none other than the original Alice of the famous story, but this version is darker, creepier, and deliciously evil. Alyssa’s mother lives in a mental hospital, for hearing voices that aren’t there and seeing things that aren’t real. The problem is, […]

Review: Broken (DAC)

Review: Broken (DAC)

February 4, 2013 Review 8 ½

This was bad. Like, really bad. Predictable, unrealistic, cheesy, sappy, and boring are a few adjectives that immediately come to mind. It was… weird. 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 […]

January 13, 2013 Review 15 ★★

First let me show you this very detailed, intricate list of pros and cons I made. Pros Dragons! Cons Everything else?* * Negatives include, but are not limited to: insta-love, heroine who is a Mary Sue, dialogue that is Twilight-esque, unrealistic coincidences, and characters that change their minds so often it will make your head spin. Why is Jacinda a […]

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: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

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 […]
