Book Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Book Reviews | January 16, 2013

This is my first adventure with Gayle Forman but I absolutely loved it and will be checking out her other books really, really soon.

And this from one who […]

ARC Book Review: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Book Reviews | January 15, 2013

Man, this is only my second ever ARC review and just like the last one, I can’t rave about it. I really wish I could, but my conscience says I can’t. Ultimately my conclusion about this one is that it suffers, in my eyes, from middle book syndrome. I liked Incarnate! I liked it a lot. It was […]

Thank you forever, Marissa Meyer, for this book. Not only was it an extremely creative and enjoyable sci-fi retelling of Cinderella, but I was craving good young adult sci-fi for so long, and now I finally have found a great one. I knew about this book for a long time, kept seeing the title on Goodreads, but something […]

Book Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Book Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Book Reviews | January 3, 2013

Jodi Meadows brings to us, with Incarnate, a vastly creative and original young adult novel. This is one of those times where I’m almost speechless because of the subtle beauty of this story. The most challenging thing of this review is to explain why exactly I did like it very much. Perhaps it’s best explained through actions, not […]
