Book Review: Boundless by Cynthia Hand

Book Review: Boundless by Cynthia Hand

The biggest challenge, in writing this review, is to not spoil anything. But I am trying my hardest. Boundless is an action-packed, stunning ending to a beautiful series. Questions are finally answered, the mythology becomes an intricate, beautiful web, characters grow (sometimes together, sometimes apart), heart strings are pulled, and finally the curtain falls. Clara going off to college brings quite a change. Understandably, the cast of secondary characters I grew so fond of in Hallowed was no longer present. However, Clara once again shows tremendous growth and becomes even stronger than she was in Hallowed. Logical, I suppose, but I really like how in […]

Book Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

Book Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

WOAH. While I definitely liked Unearthly, with the amount of gushing I heard about this series, I was still a bit underwhelmed. While Unearthly presented us with a beautiful angel concept, irresistible romance, and interesting plot, Hallowed does it SO MUCH BETTER. It’s actually happening… I’m liking a sequel, not to mention a MIDDLE BOOK, better than the original. (It’s not that this hasn’t happened before, but still.) Where to begin? In terms of world building (I suppose), the mythology becomes much richer in this installment. FINALLY some answers to those pressing questions about the angels and the Black Wings. While certainly not everything is […]

Book Review: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Book Review: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

I always tend to say that paranormal romance isn’t my thing. Typically, I get more annoyed than pleased. I might need to specify that apparently there’s an exception on angel stories. Out of three angel series I’ve read, I seriously love all three of them. Unearthly is one of them. I love the idea and concept of Cynthia Hand’s angels. They are born with a divine purpose, and should they stray from the path, God only knows what will happen (ha, get it? get it? God only– yeah, you get it). For some reason I really love that theme of fate, life being pre-ordained, that […]

ARC Book Review: Prophecy by Ellen Oh

ARC Book Review: Prophecy by Ellen Oh

Ellen Oh was highly ambitious with Prophecy. While the concept and setting were highly attractive and creative, at the end of the day all I can think is, “I want more.” And for a change, I don’t mean a sequel. I want more of this book. I feel like where Prophecy ultimately will lose in popularity and readers is the length. Three hundred pages is not a lot, especially when you’re attempting a high fantasy genre. The story just felt like it was rushing through a lot, like it was trying to tell it in as few words as possible. And what was missing are […]

Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

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 is no huge dystopian rebellion. This is just what I call my guilty pleasure type book. Prince Maxon, I think, is amazing and adorable. After finishing reading it, I found out that they’ve shot a pilot for a TV series for the CW based on the book. […]
