Book Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Reviews | December 27, 2012

Why do you do this to me Jennifer? I’m such a mess right now. My emotionsssss. We left Katy and Daemon after a big shocker in Onyx and most of Opal is spent trying to repair the damage. In terms of character development, this installment is amazing. Katy comes to terms with the guilt of lying to her […]

Book Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Reviews | November 16, 2012

With all my love for the Lux series, this prequel novella doesn’t disappoint. My biggest worry about this story was that I wouldn’t connect as much with Bethany and Dawson – and that the characters and the relationships would look identical. Well I worried for nothing. Armentrout does an amazing job of creating characters that are distinctively different […]

Book Review: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Reviews | October 15, 2012

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. […]

Book Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Reviews | September 27, 2012

The simplest way to describe this book is “Twilight done right”. Now I feel your eyes rolling and your opinion of me falling, but let me be clear, I hate Twilight with pretty much every bone in my body. But this was perfect. My review is a bundle of emotions and squees, so if you want a more […]

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Reviews | September 25, 2012

*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 […]

Book Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Book Reviews | September 17, 2012

Maybe I should give this a half orange extra? I dunno. I liked this book. Considering how much hype it’s gotten I thought it was definitely worth checking out. And I went in with pretty much the lowest expectations ever because the paranormal genre is usually not my thing. I suppose that probably helped. The biggest flaw that […]

Book Review: Illuminate by Aimee Agresti

Book Review: Illuminate by Aimee Agresti

Book Reviews | August 19, 2012

The prevailing word that comes to mind when wanting to describe Illuminate is… average. Overall the story is an interesting one and it managed to absorb me and keep me reading, but it has some serious plot holes. What drew me in is the cover. Look at that!! It’s amazing!! Serious love. Haven I loved as a main […]

Book Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Book Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Book Reviews | July 23, 2012

“Are you really reading about angels, Debby?” Yes. I read a book about angels. I too thought it would totally not be my cup of tea. But Laini Taylor is a master storyteller, has the most beautiful prose, and creates a story I would think impossible not to love. The prose was possibly the strongest point of this […]
