Review: Damned – Chuck Palahniuk

Review: Damned – Chuck Palahniuk

4 Stars, Reviews 0

This book was a riot! Constantly spouting hilarious yet intelligent remarks that will keep you flipping the pages! “The only thing that makes earth feel like Hell, or Hell feel like Hell, is our expectation that it ought to feel like Heaven. Earth is earth. Dead is dead.” (Damned, page 247.) I found Palahniuk’s vision of Hell completely obscene and disgusting, but also very perfect and funny in regards to Maddie’s point of view! I loved the characters, especially the… Read more »

Review: Shadow of Wrath (Sins of the 7) – L.W. Patricks

Review: Shadow of Wrath (Sins of the 7) – L.W. Patricks

4 Stars, Reviews 0

Death, Violence, Suggestive Language: I wouldn’t recommend this for younger readers. Shadow of Wrath was extremely well written, in my opinion. L.W. Patricks puts you in the this horrid arena, where children fight to the death, repeatedly, leaving only the children willing to kill to survive alive. Just because your alive, doesn’t mean your living, as the book harshly shows. Dog may be the champion and given better housing and food but he’s still just an animal, caged and tortured….

“There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything.

Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time… Read more »

Review: Crank – Ellen Hopkins

Review: Crank – Ellen Hopkins

4 Stars, Reviews 0

**Warning: May contain spoilers, minimally** What I liked: I loved this book. It was beautifully written, despite the gruesome topics it addressed. The monster, rape, and teen pregnancy are definitely not taken lightheartedly and Ellen Hopkins strings all three into a wonderful book that touches your heart, pulls at your emotions, and completely moves you. I also really liked how this book triggered so many emotions within me. There is a disturbing scene, for me anyway, that made me feel sick… Read more »

Review: Cinder – Marissa Meyer!

Review: Cinder – Marissa Meyer!

4 Stars, Reviews 3

What I liked: I loved the fairy tale twist that was spun out so cleverly that it was impossible to put down. Cinder was unique and different, yet at the same time so easy to relate to because she was in some ways just a teenager trying to fit in. There were so many plot twists and unexpected revelations throughout the book that held my eyes glued to the pages. The world we are put in is absolutely incredible, not… Read more »
