Yes, another book haul BUT IT’S SMALL, okay? And I only bought three of them. So there.

It’s weird to start off a 4 orange review saying that I’m sort of disappointed in the book, but alas, that is what hype does to me. Make no mistake, Lady Thief is a great book that is cementing Scarlet as one of my favorite ongoing series, even if I possibly didn’t like this one as much as I wanted to.
This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #20. The Hype Train Here we go. I’ve been putting off writing this post since at least November. It’s been in my head for so long but I just never really knew how to express it. And after being fooled by yet another hype train… I can’t put it off any longer. So here’s the thing about hype: ………I hate it.
When I was offered Noggin for review, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. From the blurb it just sounded unique and sort of weird. With the head cut off element, I thought it would be a bizarre kind of sci-fi, but nope. This book surprised me in the best possible way.
This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I chose contemporary for this topic because, well for most other genres, the books I’ve read are in series and then it’s just repetitive and everything. Since most contemporaries are stand alone, I have a LOT more to choose from. These are all my absolute favorites, and all of them have 5 star ratings. Let the gushing begin.
I’m not sure what to really say about The Shadow Prince, because in spite of its many and glaring faults, I found myself really enjoying this story. It’s certainly not a book that will work for every reader, but it worked for me, and I’ll look back on it rather fondly.
*sigh* *whimpers* Elusion, I wanted to love you so badly. I put you on my most anticipated reads list for 2014 and… it didn’t work out. It just didn’t. I did not get along with this book.
Every once in a while, I come across a song that fits perfectly with a book I’ve read. In this new feature, I’ll tell you about them! Adorkable by Sarra Manning
