Review – Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

The only reason I was able to stand the ending of Shadow Kiss was because I had Blood Promise to pick up right after. Rose is off on her own this time around and the world of Vampire Academy is about to get a whole lot bigger. Her drive to seek Dimitri out is relentless as she hunts the creatures that go bump […]

Review – Geist by Philippa Ballantine

I don’t even know what to say about Geist. The first time I read it (yes, I did reread it), I thought there wasn’t enough background–plenty of action and adventure, but not enough supporting details. When I read it again, while yes, I knew what would happen, I realized how seamlessly Ballantine weaves in her world with the story. You […]

Review – Witch Song by Amber Argyle

From the beginning: Right off the bat, the story held my attention. Argyle’s world was fresh and intriguing, changing the idea of “witches” in fiction. And yet, the story held to the basic coming-of-age story with the young adult defeating the bad guy (or woman in this case) without wandering into the realm of cliche. A truly refreshing take. Couldn’t […]

Review – Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Well, how about those characters?: I liked the characters a lot. But there were a few personality traits that I just didn’t like at all. Patch was very stalkerish and creepy. I didn’t mind it too much but there were occasions that it came through a little too strong. Nora, on the other hand, just annoyed me at times. She […]

Review – Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

If a book was every going to break my heart, it’s this one. I don’t cry when I read, nor when I watch movies, but I was tearing up at the end of Shadow Kiss. This book is everything I ever wanted and then suddenly it tore my heart into itty bitty pieces. I think if I hadn’t known there would be […]

Review – Firelight by Sophie Jordan

Slow to start: I initially had trouble getting into the story. It seemed to take several chapters before there was anything to really draw me in. There was also the fact that the novel’s in present tense, which really threw me off. At times it seemed like it would have been better suited to be in past tense, which I […]

Review – Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

The war is still raging: In this sequel to Westerfeld’s Leviathan, World War I is still raging across Europe. And yet again, Deryn and Alek are on another adventure. Westerfeld keeps the excitement flowing through this second book as the airship, Leviathan, heads for the Ottoman Empire. I loved the action in this novel and Westerfeld’s attention to detail, especially […]

Review – Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Action, adventure, comedy, and romance. Who could want more? This book was an action-packed urban fantasy that was sometimes serious, sometimes (very) heavy on the romance, and sometimes drop-on-the-floor hysterical. Cat and Bones have a certain chemistry that makes them perfect for the main characters of this book as their personalities clash and mix to create a whirl of an […]
