Starcrossed (Starcrossed #1) by Josephine Angelini

Review of STARCROSSED This book is mostly based on Greek mythology which is why I love it so much. I think it’s great when authors try to incorporate the Greek gods and whatnot. I loved all the characters in this book, from the main characters Helene and Lucas to the whole Delos family. Everyone was great and very likable! Even the humans like Matt and Claire who weren’t there as much were still fantastic! I really liked the plot of this book too. Helene doesn’t know what she is let alone how powerful she is and you follow her while […]

Uglies (Uglies #1) by Scott Westerfeld

Uglies (Uglies #1) by Scott Westerfeld

Review of UGLIES I don’t really know what to say about this one. It was only ok for me, not terrible but not fantastic. Here’s what I don’t like about this series: Mostly all of the characters and the stupid dystopian world they live in. All I have to say is why? It’s like any other dystopia book out there! They don’t like the rules so they run away in the wild.Ta da! Sorry for the spoiler. And the reason Tally, the main character,goes into the wild? Because of a boy and to show up her friend. Yea, lame I know. […]

Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls #1) by C.C. Hunter

Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls #1) by C.C. Hunter

Review of BORN AT MIDNIGHT I was super happy after reading this one! I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to finish the series! The characters were mostly all enjoyable. Obviously I loved the super hot werewolf and the main character wasn’t too bad. She was going through her parents getting a divorce and got sent to this camp where she finds out she isn’t human. She’s got a pretty good excuse not to be perfect but I still liked her anyways. The plot was a little boring sometimes. It was mostly about Kylie trying to fit in and whatnot […]

Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1) by Rachel Hawkins

Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1) by Rachel Hawkins

Review of HEX HALL I love books about witches. Ever since I fell in love with Harry Potter I think. I’ve read a crazy about of books about them and there’s just something I love about it. Maybe that’s why I liked this book so much. I was a little iffy if I was going to like this one because I also just finished another book quite similar. I hated the main character at first. She’s a little whinny but I got over it and dos did she apparently because she turned pretty bad ass. I found the plot only […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine #1) by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine #1) by Ransom Riggs

This was quite the book! I’m pleasantly surprised! I didn’t think I was going to like this one, for reasons I don’t even remember because this one was actually a really good book. I came close to giving it a full 5 stars but held back at the last minute because I found I had a hard time getting into the book. It wasn’t a stay up late to finish kind of book and I need that for a full 5 star book. Usually I would consider this a young adult book, though it is anyways, since the main character […]

Book Review: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

Book Review: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

Review of HOUSE OF LEAVES This is the craziest thing I have ever read. In a good way though. It was scary, creepy and weird all at the same time. There’s footnotes telling another story on just about every page and at some point you need to turn the book upside down to read it. It’s a really clever book and some people think you need to read it more than once but I could never read this book a second time. The formatting with the upside down parts, footnotes and even some blank pages all has to do with […]

Pretty Little Liars Series (1-8) by Sarah Sheppard

Pretty Little Liars Series (1-8) by Sarah Sheppard

Review of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS SERIES (1-8) I hate it when authors just keep going with a series. Please. Save yourself from ruining it all and just stop. That’s the case with this series (among other things). We’ve got A, the bad guy throughout the series. We find out who A is like 20 different times. That might be a slight exaggeration but shouldn’t there be one A? Yes. Why push the story on even further? Next, the main characters are all ridiculous. They accuse their best friends of being the murdering A. Shouldn’t you trust your best friend? Probably, […]

Tithe (Modern Faerie Tales #1) by Holly Black

TITHE by Holly Black pub-2002 About TITHE (taken from goodreads.com) Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms – a struggle that could very well mean her death. Review of TITHE This definitely was not one of the better faerie books. It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t something I really enjoyed either. […]
