Book Review: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book Review: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book Reviews | February 9, 2013

I first read Shatter Me about a year ago. One of the first books I read after I got back into reading. I loved it so, so much. But it was before my reviewing time, so I never posted about my love for it. This review thus also works as my endorsement for that book. I digress, Unravel […]

Book Review: Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

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: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book Review: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book Reviews | November 5, 2012

So I read Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi back in March. I loved it, absolutely loved it. However, later, cruising through Goodreads reviews, I found that there weren’t that many raving reviews (in any case, from the people I follow). Critique came mostly from the excessive use of similies and metaphors, and the lack of world building. In […]

Book Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Book Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Book Reviews | August 21, 2012

The one orange rating may be a little harsh since I didn’t finish it, but I just can’t deal with it, and I really tried. I don’t understand why people are in love with this series. I wasn’t convinced after Across the Universe and while reading this my apathy only grew. Not only do I not feel any […]

Book Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Book Reviews | July 16, 2012

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 Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Book Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Book Reviews | July 12, 2012

This was an interesting one. It came quite highly recommended, I believe one of the most highly anticipated YA Dystopias of the year. But I’m a bit torn, hence my rating. There were things I liked, things I didn’t like, things I thought could have benefited from more elaboration, but ultimately I think it’s a good set up […]

Book Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Book Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Book Reviews | May 4, 2012

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 […]

Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Book Reviews | April 27, 2012

I decided to check out The Selection by Kiera Cass, in the week of its release. I have to admit, what really grabbed me was the cover. It’s just so, so, so pretty. ‘They’ call it “The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor” but I really don’t like that tagline. It’s not really like THG, no one dies, there […]
