Audiobook Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Audiobook Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | November 14, 2014

In spite of this somewhat happy achievement of finishing a series, Last Sacrifice was one of the most painful things for me to read. Nay, listen to. Listen to. And check out the book info – yeah SEVENTEEN HOURS LONG. Painfully long, horrendously boring, and leading to the most clichéd and sickening ending. I should have stopped after […]

Audiobook Review: Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | October 27, 2014

Urgh. Series. Why do you anger me so yet still keep me going. (Adrian.) On the bright side, Spirit Bound was an improvement over Blood Promise, but then again that wasn’t too hard. The RAGE this book filled me with though. Sadly, you do not read Vampire Academy for plot. You read it for swoons. And well. I’m […]

Audiobook Review: Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | October 3, 2014

* Contains spoilers for Shadow Kiss, proceed with caution! * Aww, man. Just when I thought this series was kind of getting on the right track to work with me… it does this. *sigh* Unlike Frostbite and Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise has left me feeling meh and confused and I don’t know what even. Okay, basically my problem […]

Audiobook Review: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | September 26, 2014

After a much more enjoyable experience with Frostbite, listening to it on audiobook, I continued on with the series in this format as soon as I could. Now, Shadow Kiss gets a fair amount of hype for being the strongest in the series, which is particularly tied to a heartbreaking, shocking plot twist at the end of the […]

Audiobook Review: Frostbite by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | September 19, 2014

Those of you who’ve been around for a bit longer may remember my adventures in reading Vampire Academy as a vampire hater, practically on a dare. Though I found the overall experience likable enough, I wasn’t exactly over the moon enough to binge the series right away – and I certainly didn’t understand the hype. But this is […]

Book Review: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Book Review: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | June 27, 2013

I start this review with the utmost trepidation because… well here’s a book that pretty much every YA reader on the planet loves. It has crazy amounts of crazy fans and, well, I didn’t think it was fantastic. It wasn’t bad either. It did make me want to bash my head against the wall at some points (we’ll get […]

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 […]
