Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I finally discovered the Lux series. I am sure some of you have already read these, and if you had the same experience I did, loved them. I found this one, read the blurb, and read it soon after. And then I read the second one, Onyx, and then Opal. I started this three days […]

Review: Lost in Starlight by Sherry Soule

Review: Lost in Starlight by Sherry Soule

High school girl, check. Handsome brothers with otherworldly powers, check. Big crush on one of the boys, by girl, check. Girl stalking boy, check. Boy finally noticing girl, check. And the story is only just beginning. If you read this book, you will totally get why I started this with a check list. Sloane is […]

Review: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Review: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

First and foremost, you need to know that The Queen of the Tearling is NOT a YA Fantasy.  As far as I can tell, HarperCollins is not marketing the book that way, but when I read this, “Young Adult” was listed as the second shelf on the Goodreads’ genre list (which of course means that Goodreads users are […]

Review: The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead

Review: The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead

After reading the first two books in this series back-to-back, I was reminded of something that often happens while I’m reading a book by Richelle Mead. I’ve already admitted to loving her, and I do, but oftentimes something, normally just a single thing, keeps me from love, LOVE, L-O-V-I-N-G whatever it is that I’m reading. […]

Review: Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach

Review: Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach

On the off-chance anyone hasn’t gotten the memo yet: A-L-I-E-N-S<——I love ’em. This is partially b/c when my grandmother (who I stayed with instead of going to daycare) wasn’t reading me fairy tales, I was watching PBS specials on the ocean or OUTER SPACE. Which is why when I was in first grade and got asked […]

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

As soon as I read a fellow bloggers review of this on Amazon, I was sold on reading it. She said she couldn’t put it down. Well I couldn’t either. I started it one afternoon and finished it at 6 a.m. the next day after not sleeping. It’s YA but that didn’t even matter, I […]

Review: The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian

Review: The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian

Here’s my rule about spoilers: If it’s in the blurb, or if it’s in the first 5(ish)% of the book (and therefore available for download BEFORE you purchase the book), it’s not a spoiler. And that’s my disclaimer. Meet Evalyn Ibarra. As The Wicked We Have Done begins, Evalyn is saying goodbye to her mother […]

Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

I love Richelle Mead. Everything that I’ve read of hers–Georgina Kincaid, Dark Swan, even Vampire Academy (though I still haven’t read the last book of that series)—I’ve, at a minimum, REALLY liked. But for some reason, I held out on reading this new series until now. The initial reviews were kind of MEH, and I’ve gotten leery […]

Review: Plus One by Elizabeth Fama

Review: Plus One by Elizabeth Fama

LOTS of dystopians flooding the YA market these days. That doesn’t particularly bother me, but as is true when a market is flooded with anything, I’ve had to become more selective in deciding which dystopians to actually read. I needed to create a method of separating the wheat from the the chaff, the silver from […]
