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: 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: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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 objective opinion of why this is so good, what “Twilight done right” really means, check out Stephanie Sinclair’s review. If I were to look at the novel critically it wouldn’t deserve the five stars. I mean, I found grammatical errors, sometimes the writing style was awful, it […]

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: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

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 I can think of that no moment really “blew me away” or whatever. I’d seen spoilers – so the ending revelation about Jace was nothing new to me. I am interested to see how that will be resolved – since I already sort of know that too. […]

Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

This is probably my favorite “classic” that I’ve ever read. Jane Austen created an absolutely beautiful story. While reading it I could totally imagine ladies of the 19th century being enthralled with the romance – fangirls before fangirls existed. But that’s the thing: it’s a perfectly crafted love story. I’ve always, always adored love-hate relationships and this has got to be the most perfect one. You become totally engrossed in Elizabeth’s thoughts: at first Mr. Darcy is completely intolerable, but in the latter half of the story you start swooning at the mere mention of him. It’s just absolutely beautiful, and I honestly can’t say […]

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. […]
