ARC Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

ARC Book Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Book Reviews | January 20, 2014

Cruel Beauty absolutely blew me away. So much so that roughly a week later, I’m still too speechless to write a review. I don’t know how to talk about this book without gushing. How to express in words just how much I loved it. But here we go. I will make a valiant effort. That promo comparison “Graceling […]

ARC Book Review: Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Book Reviews | January 13, 2014

Almost a full year I have been suffering the desperate longing for this book, after Everbound tore out my heart and smashed it into pieces with its killer cliffhanger. I managed to get my hands on an ARC and had to read it right away. There was no other option. Then, save for the first 60 pages, I […]

Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Reviews | February 2, 2013

I feel… conflicted. Half-Blood was a pleasant read. There’s a lot of nice things, and well, there’s Aiden. But it definitely won’t be taking Lux’s place as my favorite series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Let’s focus on the elephant in the room for a second. A lot of reviewers have pointed out startling comparisons between Half-Blood and the […]

Book Review: Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Book Reviews | January 24, 2013

Let me take you through my immediate reactions during the last 10 pages and after finishing this book. “NOOOOOOOOOO!!!” “You just… I don’t…” “I can’t even…” “I don’t know… I just don’t know…” I’m pretty much still in that state. I am literally fighting the urge to just pull my knees up to my chest and slowly rock […]

Book Reviews | January 23, 2013

I need to get one thing out of the way real quick. You see, this was one of my most anticipated books of 2012. At a certain point, you just couldn’t get me to shut up about it anymore. And yes, I finally read it in January 2013. You see, this thing happened. I knew this book would […]

Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Book Reviews | November 18, 2012

Wow. That’s the best way to start this review. Brodi Ashton delivers on this beautifully original paranormal romance. The story, shrouded in mystery that unravels at just the right pace, will keep you reading until deep in the night. The story is rooted in Greek mythology. I’ve always been a fan of the Persephone myth. It’s my favorite […]

Book Review: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | November 13, 2012

First off, I AM IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION. (Because the ending. Yeah.) *cough* So after devouring the original Percy Jackson & the Olympians series in May and the first two books of The Heroes of Olympus in June, the time finally came that I had to wait for the next installment. Ew, waiting. However, I was […]

Book Review: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | June 12, 2012

Wow. After The Lost Hero, which was extremely disappointing to me, The Son of Neptune is a definite improvement. I started really skeptically, and the first half was extremely slow and contrived, but the second half more than made up for it. The Positives I think should first give honorable mention to Ella. I think of all the […]
