Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

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 of all the Greek myths. Persephone is my favorite goddess. I think that helped a lot with being sucked into this story. But it worked so well. The execution was amazing. The concept was really original, creative, and well constructed. So the story tells the tale of […]

Book Review: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Imagine all the gushing sounds on the planet and that’s basically what I am right now. I’m just one puddle of goo, and don’t roll your eyes at me, that’s so opposite to how I usually am. This series is just plain amazing. While I personally don’t think it was as great as Obsidian, it was still amazing. This series is turning out to be one of my absolute all time favorites. This book seriously just had me trembling, giggling, squealing and I don’t do that. I just don’t. Let me get this out of the way, the reason why I’m giving a book that […]

Book Review: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Book Review: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Wow guys. Wow. Honestly, this book is probably worth 5 oranges, and I might change that later, but I missed some things. Mostly that happened due to me reading this during the first, sleep-deprived, exhausting week of grad school. When it comes to (I guess YA) fantasy novels, this is the way you do it. Seriously. Awesome worldbuilding. Intriguing prophecy. Ass-kickingly awesome heroine. Cool hero. Romance that is to die for, but NOT the main focus. A book that can very well standalone even though it’s in a series. What I missed out on basically boils down to the fact that I read this on […]

Book Review: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Wow. I am still loving this series. It’s getting even harder to not read, and focus on studying. As for the characters, I am loving Luke. I know, how could I? Really. But it’s so interesting – it’s like me loving Draco in Harry Potter, forever and always. I love it when the villain has such a different view on things, but when you put yourself in their shoes you can really understand where they’re coming from. It’s not an invalid point of view, you know. Luke is just so interesting. I was actually disappointed by how little he actually appeared in the book. I’d […]

Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

I must admit, I was seriously late to this party. Sadly no one had ever thought to really recommend the Percy Jackson series to me. I did however see the movie quite soon after its release. I enjoyed it, but that was probably because I had no idea what the story was really like. Real fans of the series were disappointed by the movie and I can see why. It’s just completely different. In any case, I thought this book was epic and awesome. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book where I’m not questioning everything as I go along reading it, and just […]
