The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson

The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson

Review of THE CROWN OF EMBERS I was not expecting this for the second book but thank good this book happened. I surprisingly loved it more than the first book. First of all there was way more romance which made me happy and Elisa was less annoying in this one. The ending surprised me a little bit but I think it’s going to turn out nice in the next book. I could not put this book down! I got caught up in it and had to keep reading until I finished. Hector is easily my favorite character and I was […]

Tiger’s Curse (The Tiger Saga #1) by Colleen Houck

Tiger’s Curse (The Tiger Saga #1) by Colleen Houck

Review of TIGER’S CURSE When I started this book I was a little worried. I found that the writing skills just weren’t up to the skills of the writers I usually read. The way the characters talked sometimes drove me crazy which is basically the only reason it didn’t get a full five stars. It’s little things in the writing that really help a reader to get into it. Nobody talks so formally all the time so neither should the characters in the book. The writing was a little simple I guess is what I’m saying. Except when the author […]

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi

Review of UNDER THE NEVER SKY This book just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t understand a lot of things about the dystopian world and the author didn’t explain. I thought the main character was annoying and a little whiny. I like Perry, the main guy I guess you could call him, because he was more realistic and to the point. I thought their relationship was weird as well. At first they were just kinda there and didn’t even think about each other much and then all of a sudden BAM! They’re in love. I just didn’t find it […]

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1) by Aimee Carter

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1) by Aimee Carter

Review of THE GODDESS TEST I loved this book! I mostly just love Greek mythology but adding it to a sweet book makes it so much better! I found a lot of low reviews for this one so I was a like nervous reading it. As I’ve already said I ended up loving it. A lot of people were upset because it didn’t follow Greek mythology perfectly but that’s the point isn’t it? It’s a fictional book! It’s not supposed to follow the myths exactly. I like that it was a cool twist on the myths and the Gods. I […]

Book Review: Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly #1)

Book Review: Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly #1)

Review of SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY This book was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a zombie book set in a steampunk setting. Sounds pretty cool right? Nope, because that’s not at all what this was. It was an urban fantasy with a little romance,some zombies and a small dash of mystery. Now, the title is something STRANGE and DEADLY but there wasn’t enough strange or deadly in this book. It wasn’t a bad book, I know I’m being a little harsh, but it just wasn’t up to my standards of a zombie book. Last time I checked […]
