Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins

Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins

My Review This book is dark, scary, and very, very disturbing, but all that is hidden in beautiful words and a story that is so gripping that it makes it worth reading. If you prefer happy books with cute characters that have bubbly personalities and their biggest problem in life is who they’re going to date, then this book probably isn’t for you. However, if you enjoy reading heavy books with characters who deal with real-life struggles, such as abuse,… Read more »

Review: The Shepherd by T.W. Luedke

May not be suitable for younger readers (I’d say 14+) My Thoughts I really loved the characters in The Shepherd, at least for the most of the book. Mike had a bad attitude, a few crappy friends, but always seemed genuine. He was caring for the friends he could trust, and though misguided with his affections for Rachelle, had a pretty clear and stable mindset. Which is why, for me personally, I had trouble believing his reactions to Nadia. At… Read more »

This Monday starts the book tour for Elizabeth Scott’s upcoming novel, Heartbeat, so I thought it was the perfect time to post my review of The Unwritten Rule, which I recently re-read. (P.S. I will be hosting Heartbeat’s Promo Blitz this Friday.) My Thoughts There’s quite a bit about this book that I didn’t like. But don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy reading it. Firstly, there’s Ryan. He’s with Sarah’s bestfriend, Brianna, but Sarah likes him, and has liked… Read more »

Review: Taken – Erin Bowman

Review: Taken – Erin Bowman

3 Stars, Reviews 7

This review is fairly difficult to write because there’s so many things, important plot point or characters, that can easily be spoiled. So, I’ll try to not spoil anything important. Imagine living in a town, Claysoot, the only town that exists to your knowledge, surrounded by walls. These walls are dangerous. To climb over would mean death. No boy grows to be older, not even by a day, than eighteen years. They are all lost to the Heist. On their… Read more »

Review: Every Day – David Levithan

Review: Every Day – David Levithan

This book left me feeling conflicted. Note: While saying A is pretty repetitive, there’s really no other pronoun to use for this character, and the character goes by the name ‘A.’ I may use he to refer to A, but keep in mind that A has no true gender, and so can just as easily be referred to as a she. A is… well, even A isn’t sure what A is. A doesn’t have a real name, parents,  a life,… Read more »

Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

3 Stars, Reviews 2

After reading the summary and a few reviews, I have to say I wasn’t very interested in reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, but not because it sounded awful, or anything, rather it just didn’t really appeal to me. However, a friend of mine offered to loan me the book in exchange for borrowing one of my books (Paper Towns) and I accepted, figuring I’d give it a chance anyway. In all honesty, the beginning was slow, and I… Read more »

Review: An Abundance of Katherines – John Green

3 Stars, Reviews 0

Of all the John Green books I’ve read (which is close to all of them lately) this is probably my least favorite. Colin is (or was) a child prodigy who desperately wants to be a genius- he wants fame and recognition, but instead he gets dumped, for the nineteenth time, by a girl named Katherine (and so you get the title) and thus becomes depressed. Then his best friend, Hassan, decides it’s time for a road trip that leads them… Read more »

Quinn and Aaron both come from broken families, but that’s not all they have in common. Aaron has been dead before and can’t remember anything about his life before his death but that’s not the strangest part- he has physic abilities. Quinn is being haunted by nightmares and shadows. Only she doesn’t realized that the shadows aren’t just hallucinations caused by sleep deprivation. With the shadows making her feel crazy and off balance, she tries to get over her break… Read more »
