5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

5 Things About Talon by Julie Kagawa

April 21, 2017 Review 7 ★★½

I think it was a miss After hearing mixed reviews (both online and from friends who DNFed early on) I was really hesitant to start TALON. I love Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey and Blood of Eden books, so I really was hoping this was okay, but the mixed reception had me worried. And unfortunately everything my friends said was true. […]

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

March 3, 2017 Review 25 ★★

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 […]

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. […]

5 Things About The Rose And The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

January 27, 2017 Review 30 ★★★★★

Feelings intensify THIS BOOK MADE ME FEEL SO MANY THINGS!! From squealing because A+ romance, to terror and suspense, and incredible sadness because of character deaths and things. Seriously, I was struggling to hold back tears while driving. I couldn’t deal (in the best way possible). Connections with more characters This increased connection to characters is the reason for the […]

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

5 Things About The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

December 15, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★½

Inspired by classic tales The synopsis states that THE WRATH AND THE DAWN is inspired by A Thousand Arabian Nights, which is a story I’ve always been meaning to read because the few retellings I’ve read have been amazing. THE WRATH OF THE DAWN was no exception, but I wish there had been more of the story telling involved throughout […]

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

October 29, 2016 Review 8 ★★★½

Back to the mystery and intrigue One of the things I was worried about was that I would find BLACK HEART as meh as I found RED GLOVE. Fortunately for me, we get more heists and intrigue right from the get go. It was more fast paced than the second book which helped a lot and had less romance angst. […]

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

August 28, 2016 Review 10 ★★★

Second book syndrome or slump? I really enjoyed WHITE CAT but for some reason I never fully connected with RED GLOVE. It may be attributable to a slump I was in at the time, or it may be because I actually didn’t enjoy it as much. It’s difficult to tell and to be honest I think it might be a […]
