Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

4 Stars, Reviews 2

It took me several weeks months to read This Savage Song because of college and homework and it’s like 400 pages long, but FINALLY I finished this book and then realized that the sequel doesn’t get released until June. UGH. I need to know how the story continues! I NEED to know what happens to Kate and August! LIKE NOW. Anyway… please ignore my impatience. Yeah. I was WAY off. It is about music, but it’s about monsters who use music to eat people’s souls…. Read more »

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

4 Stars, Reviews 1

I never wanted to get into Twilight. The Twilight series was one of the most popular books/movies during my middle school career. For that reason alone, I refused to go near any of them. That didn’t last long. After Breaking Dawn Part One was released in theaters, I decided to give them all a shot. My thoughts were jumbled. I was uncomfortable with Edward and Bella’s relationship, but I loved them anyways. They are  honestly, to this day, one my… Read more »

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

2 Stars, Reviews 8

Possible spoilers ahead… So, I keep seeing blurbs and descriptions advertising this book as having a “riveting dystopian world,” of being a “thrilling superhero story” (both on the back blurb of my paperback copy) and of being a “dystopian thriller” (on wikipedia)… however, that’s not really accurate. I mean, yeah the world is dystopian, and the main character can kill people by touching them can I please have this power, and mayyybeee that makes it a dystopian thriller. But in my opinion, it… 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 »

The Hunted One by Meg Collett: Blog Tour & Review + Giveaway

4 Stars, Blog Tour, Reviews 5

Some adult content! May not be appropriate for younger readers. the plot This is the first book about angels that I’ve read in… who knows how long, so it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. The Hunted One has a unique perspective on angels and Heaven, and their connections with Earth, Hell, and the humans. The angels, instead of being perfectly pure and loyal, are turned into the ‘bad guys’ and Michaela, the general of Heaven, has been betrayed by… Read more »

Review: The Shepherd by T.W. Luedke

Review: The Shepherd by T.W. Luedke

3 Stars, Reviews 0

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 »

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 »

4 Stars, Blog Tour, Reviews 2

I was excited to start this book after reading the blurb. Not only did the paranormal elements pull me in, so did the romance that blossomed between Raine and Torin. Usually my favorite part of the book is the middle, where everything is happening, but I was shocked and totally in love with the ending of Runes. I adored Torin as well, his character was very believable and I quickly grew attached. The paranormal element is original, and very easy… Read more »
