Review: Perfect Scoundrels

Review: Perfect Scoundrels

April 12, 2013 Review 6 ★★★★½

I think I should start off by saying I love¬†Ally Carter. Her writing is fantastic. Always light and funny, but with a great plot line and emotional undercurrents. PERFECT SCOUNDRELS was no exception to her awesomeness. If anything, it was slightly more serious and character driven than the previous Heist Society books. But I’m more than okay with that. Especially […]

Review: The Diviners

April 6, 2013 Review 20 ★★★½

Historical novels are a passion of mine. I love the past, it’s really interesting to see where society has come from and how the ideals have changed over time. However, I usually stick to pre-1900’s stuff. Once or twice I’ve read books set in World War II, sometimes World War I, but never the 1920’s until now. THE DIVINERS was […]

March 29, 2013 Review 17 ★★★★★

I have gone to start this review about three times to but have failed every single time I try to string coherent words together. How do I explain the effect this last book in one of my favourite series had on me? I loved it. I cried. I felt immense pain. Yet also happiness. It was such an emotional rollercoaster […]

Review: Days of Blood and Starlight

March 18, 2013 Review 16

I am distraught. So very, very distraught. I finished DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT a couple of nights ago and ever since, Why am I lying on the floor unable to function beyond dying whale noises? Because I don’t know what to do with my life. DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT affected me deeply. I’m struggling to put into words […]

Review: Pushing the Limits

Review: Pushing the Limits

March 14, 2013 Review 18 ★★★★½

Contemporaries could be what you call ‘guilty pleasure books’ for me. I read them when I don’t feel like focusing on a plot heavy book, when I just want a nice easy breezy read. PUSHING THE LIMITS, like all good contemporaries, did just that. It featured all the nitty gritty bits of teenagedom (drugs, sex, foul language, none of which I have actually ever encounted. Well, the language yes but not others) while simultaneously having lovely romance and ripping your heart to shreds. Read more »

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 […]

Review: Masque of the Red Death

November 4, 2012 Review 8 ★★★★½

Don’t be fooled by the five star rating… This book is worth ten times as many stars. This novel is amazing, I fell in love with the characters and the plot; MASQUE OF RED DEATH has squeezed its way into my heart and into that pile of few novels I call “Favorites.” The author has created one of the best […]
