ARC Book Review: The Novice by Taran Matharu

ARC Book Review: The Novice by Taran Matharu

Book Reviews | May 4, 2015

When I first heard about The Novice, with its stunning cover and Wattpad origins, I immediately had high hopes. “This could potentially be the next Throne of Glass series,” my brain screamed, excitedly. After reading it, I’m not sure I’d go so far as to say all that, but The Novice is entertaining for sure, and a series […]

Audiobook Review: Frostbite by Richelle Mead

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 […]

Manga Series Review: Hana-Kimi

Book Reviews | January 18, 2014

Hana-Kimi, or its official title Hanazakari no Kimi Tachi e, or its English title For You in Full Bloom, was the first manga of our manga project, and it was a great way to kick-off the project. Hana Kimi is a great manga if you want to test the waters and try it out. It uses the tropes […]

Book Reviews | December 30, 2013

Here we go, issue 328597 in “The Chronicles of Debby, the Heartless Bitch”. As much as I hoped that I would fall in love with Looking for Alaska like almost everyone else and be reduced to a sobbing mess as I was practically promised I would be… it just didn’t work out. Grief stories are officially not for […]

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 […]

Writing this review may be one of the hardest things in the world because… how do you gush and still sound original when the whole rest of the world has read and loved this book? Their reviews are no doubt much more eloquent than mine. The solution? GIFS. Basically, the following is the result of reading this book: […]

Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Reviews | February 2, 2013

I feel… conflicted. Half-Blood was a pleasant read. There’s a lot of nice things, and well, there’s Aiden. But it definitely won’t be taking Lux’s place as my favorite series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Let’s focus on the elephant in the room for a second. A lot of reviewers have pointed out startling comparisons between Half-Blood and the […]
