Review – Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

After having just finished books 1-4 of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments Series, I was excited to read Clockwork Prince (following a reread of Clockwork Angel, of course). In this sequel, Tessa and her friends are still under the threat of Mortmain and his clockwork army and have to prepare for whatever their enemies will throw at them. First off, I […]

Review – Twice Bitten by Chloe Neill

Well I was right about the last book, Friday Night Bites. Where the second book in the series fell a bit flat compared to the first, Some Girls Bite, this third installment kicked it back up into gear and was endless action in all the best ways. And that ending… I knew. I KNEW it was going to be a cliffhanger and […]

Review – Goliath by Scott Westerfeld

The first thing I thought when I finished Goliath was “wow.” There is just something about Scott Westerfeld’s writing that captivates me from page one. Whether it’s the Uglies Seriesor the Midnighters Series, and even now with the Leviathan Trilogy, I’m hooked from page one. And although I wish this wasn’t the end of the story, Goliath was an excellent way […]

Review – Friday Night Bites by Chloe Neill

The first thing I have to say about this book might seem a bit… odd, but it’s worth noting that Neill is consistent. So often sequels either excel above and beyond (the rarer case from what I’ve seen) or they plummet, but Friday Night Bites was pretty equal to the first book, Some Girls Bite, in most regards. By that, I mean the […]

Review – Spectyr by Philippa Ballantine

Once again, Ballantine delivers with an exciting sequel to her Book of the Order series. First off, this swashbuckling sequel dives right into the story instead of introducing everything (as was the case with Geist). I was really glad since that was the main flaw of the first book, in my opinion. Instead, all of the background information I wanted […]

Review – Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill

Now that is what I call an urban fantasy. I’ve been on a bit of a paranormal kick lately and decided to give this series a try. First I’ve read of the author but it certainly won’t be my last. The writing reminded me a lot of Richelle Mead, whose books I absolutely adore, so definitely brownie points there. Plus, […]

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 […]
