Review: The Innocent Assassins by Pema Donyo

Review: The Innocent Assassins by Pema Donyo

4 Stars, Reviews 2

plot I was fully intrigued by the idea of teenage assassins, especially in such an organized setting that could easy be compared to a boarding school/workplace. It added an idea of institutionalized murder, which is equally intriguing as it is horrifying. Jane works for Covert Operatives, an organization that ‘rescues’ orphans off the street and gives them a home… the catch? They are trained as professional assassins carrying out the dirty work for greedy people across the world. Except, Lucy isn’t as… Read more »

Top Ten Books I Would Want To Reread (If I Reread Books)

Top Ten Books I Would Want To Reread (If I Reread Books)

Top Ten Tuesday 2

For me, rereading is a thing of the past. Which is incredibly unfortunate, but I just don’t have the time to reread books lately. Especially when there are new books that I need to get my hands on. The idea of rereading is actually so enticing because I’m always super sad to leave a world behind, or a character that I grew deeply attached to. Sometimes, it feels like I mourn characters as if they died when I finish a… Read more »

the plot The romance was ADORABLE. Although, at some points it felt like it was moving too fast and as if a bit of insta-love was occurring, which I wasn’t a huge fan of. I felt like since the characters start off totally angry at each other that it was a bit weird for them to be getting so close so quickly. Especially since Matt had come across as SUCH a terrible person. Beside that, I loved their relationship and… Read more »

Blog Tour Review: Shameless by Nina Lemay

Blog Tour Review: Shameless by Nina Lemay

the plot Hannah is a student in Montreal who is paying for college by stripping every night at a local club. Honestly, I was a bit wary about where this book was going to go when it started, especially since the book is contemporary romance and it focuses more on the characters and relationships than it does on a specific plot. Which is kind of the point, except Shameless surprised me in the end when unexpected problems arise and put Hannah… Read more »

the plot The concept is AMAZING. Greek Gods reincarnated in the modern-day characters? Yes, please! Savannah is on her way to study at the University of Athens when she’s swooped away by Atlas, a self-proclaimed Titan who tells her she’s the vessel for one of the Greek Goddesses. At first, she doesn’t believe him, but all too quickly it seems like she gives in to what he’s telling her and just goes with it. I felt like that wasn’t very… Read more »

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Novel Heartbeat. Topic: Languages The only language I am fluent in is English. Even though I had French class during high school and Spanish class when I was little, I remember very little from either. I started taking French in 8th grade and I continued with it for three years. I adored the language and culture but I just SUCKED at speaking and reading in French. I would have stuck with… Read more »

Review: Silver by Chris Wooding

the plot When I read the summary, the first word that popped into my mind was “Zombies!” but I was a bit off with that assumption. There are zombie-like creatures, but they’re technically mechanical ‘monsters’ that are infected with a sort of virus. The action starts right away after introducing the characters and I felt like the action was TOO soon, and not very well-done. I had trouble believing what was happening, and while I know sci-fi isn’t supposed to… Read more »
