Oh gosh where do I even begin with this review?  I’m a huge fan of the whole Lunar Chronicles series and I will say that I’m also a fan of Fairest but it’s really hard for me to put it into words.  Whereas I adored the rest of the series for the amazing characters and […]

Such Sweet Sorrow by Jenny Trout | Mini Review

Such Sweet Sorrow is a lot more than a retelling of Romeo and Juliet.  I was pleasantly surprised to find many more of Shakespeare’s characters represented in this book and while it had it’s flaws, it was an enjoyable read. Jenny Trout has a way with words.  Such Sweet Sorrow is beautifully written.  However, I […]

Gilded Ashes is a novella set in the same world as Cruel Beauty.  That was all it took to get me to give this book a shot.  While I normally don’t love novellas, that was not the case with this one.  If more novellas were like Gilded Ashes, I would be a lot more inclined […]

Last year I was really tempted to read McCormick Templeman’s debut novel, The Little Woods, but for some reason, I put it off. I’m glad I didn’t do the same thing with The Glass Casket. After reading this one, I’m definitely going back and reading The Little Woods because The Glass Casket was fabulous. The […]

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge..

Cruel Beauty, Rosamund Hodge’s debut novel, is one of the best retellings I’ve read. Really it’s just one of the best books I’ve read in quite some time. I was hooked from the very beginning and I stayed up late into the night finishing it because I needed to know how it ended! Everything about […]

Underworld (Abandon #2) by Meg Cabot | Review

Underworld (Abandon #2) by Meg..

I really wanted to love Underworld. I’m a huge Meg Cabot fan as well as a Greek mythology fan. While I enjoyed Underworld I found it seriously lacking in some ways and I just couldn’t love it. Pierce is probably the biggest problem. She is such a contradictory character. One second she hates John and […]

Abandon (Abandon #1) by Meg Ca..

Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors and I have to say that I was disappointed with Abandon.  Nothing really stood out to me in this one and while it did a good job setting things up for the next book, I would’ve liked more. Pierce Oliviera has not had the best luck in […]
