Short Story Saturday: Automatic by Rachel Caine

Short Story Saturday: Automati..

Automatic had the making of a great short story but I couldn’t fully enjoy it.  The reasoning behind that is pretty simple though; I haven’t read any of the Morganville Vampires books.   This story is set in Morganville, Texas and while I think you can read it without reading the series, I think readers […]

When I read Skin Contact I had no idea it was part of The Body Finder series.  I figured I should start my review with that since I think if I was caught up with the series I would have liked this one more and understood things a little better.  As it was it was […]

Leaving is one of those stories that could be good but wasn’t really.  Ally Condie started off strong but there was just too much information missing from the story for to truly love it.  It was almost like it was the beginning of a story and she just decided not to bother writing the ending. […]

Bridge is part of the Shade series which I didn’t know when I started it.  I’ve only read the first book in the Shade trilogy and I felt like I was definitely missing some information.  However, I still really enjoyed the story and the fact that it was written in verse made it awesome. Bridge […]

Gilded Ashes by Rosamund Hodge..

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 […]

I love Laini Taylor. I’m just gonna start out saying that. The Night of Cake & Puppets is the story of Zuzana and Mik’s first date. Zuzana has always been one of my favorite supporting characters and that’s even more true after reading from her point of view in this story. She’s quite a unique […]

Short Story Saturday: Roar and Liv (Under the Never Sky #0.5) by Veronica Rossi

I’m a little behind with my novellas. I’ve already read both Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night but I decided to go back and read Roar and Liv anyway. I’m actually really glad I took the time to read this novella and even having already read the two books that follow it, […]

I’ve always been a fan of Lauren Oliver’s books whether they be contemporary or dystopian. However, Hana really let me down. I was expecting a lot more from this novella and in the end, I just didn’t get what I expected. Hana really impressed me in Delirium. She wasn’t the typical best friend character who […]

Bloody Valentine is the first set of short stories that I have read about the Blue Bloods but if Keys To The Repository is anything like this one I will have to check it out.  Bloody Valentine really shed some light on the characters that I love from the Blue Bloods series. The first story […]
