Book Review: Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn

Book Review: Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn

I’m just going to give this a quick review, instead of what I had been thinking of not reviewing it at all. Exams next week, lol. I laugh in the face of exams. So. Tempting the Best Man. Light erotica. “Are you really reading erotica???” Whatever, haters gon hate. Honestly, so many people have read 50 Shades, I won’t feel ashamed for this. So J. Lynn is the pen name of Jennifer L. Armentrout, which is what incited my curiosity for this book. My obsession with the Lux series knows no bounds, really. But anyway, the romance she had written in the Lux series was […]

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

*sigh* – that’s the only appropriate way to start this review. Now I gave City of Bones 3.5 oranges, and was even sort of debating giving it an extra orange, and now I’m thinking that even 3.5 was too many. I’ve reached a few conclusions about why that is: first off, I’ve definitely reached my YA bullshit quota for the month, and need a break from that. And secondly, I’ve realized that The Mortal Instruments are guilty pleasure books. Except this time I felt none of the pleasure in it. By this term I mean to say that these books are fine if your read […]

Book Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Book Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

I don’t really know quite how to feel about this one. I’d heard a lot of hype about it, quite a few people I know really love it. While the story was good and intriguing, something still kept me from connecting to it. This novel is another example, in my case, of how wrong expectations can ruin a book in your eyes. I read the premise, of course, but that was QUITE a while ago. A few months. So all I really remembered was that it was sci-fi, with romance, of people searching for a new planet to live. That being said, in my head […]

Book Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Book Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I just finished reading Insurgent yesterday… And I don’t really know what to think about it. SPOILER ALERT, because I honestly can’t review this without spoiling stuff. It was just plain disappointing to me. Which is sad because I thought the first book was close to perfect. The world building, all the details and the analysis of the factions, the pros and cons of all the dominant personality traits… Action packed, with a romantic story that did not take the spotlight but was an absolutely a nice bonus. Most of all, it was a story that kept me interested the whole time, dying to figure […]
