Enders by Lissa Price

Enders by Lissa Price

I read Starters and enjoyed it a lot. I found it exciting and fast paced, so of course I was looking forward to the second book, Enders. As time passed, I forgot about it. It’s been almost two years between the release dates, so I have a good excuse! Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised when […]

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Let me tell you about my journey with Red Rising. When I first got an email telling me the eARC was available, I deleted it without much thought. Then a week or so later I started to have second thoughts about deleting that email and went ahead and requested the book. Then once I got […]

Sunday Post #64 (1/26/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Oh my gosh, you guys … it has been so nice here! I know a lot of you are freezing, and I sound like a jackass, but it’s like springtime – 70 to 75° and sunny, which is 15+ degrees higher than normal. Love it! […]

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Alrighty, so the New Adult genre is one I don’t indulge in very often. The relationships in the NA books I have read often rubbed me the wrong way, so I usually try avoid them. Including Ten Tiny Breaths. I knew quite a few people who loved it, but I was still hesitant. So what […]

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

When I saw reviews popping up for Ten last year, I knew I had to read it. I was 100% confident that I would love it. Well, I was wrong. I was actually surprised about how much it irritated me. This turned out to be a book that reminded me of those horror movies that […]

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

When I first saw Cruel Beauty, I thought it sounded interesting and was curious about the Beauty and the Beast connection. Then when it came time to actually read it some months later, I suddenly became very hesitant and started regretting even getting the book. I’ll be honest, I came very close to DNF’ing it […]

Sunday Post #63 (1/19/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s been beautiful here! The temps have been in the high 60s – low 70s and sunny, which is warmer than usual for this time of year. I’m not complaining though. The downside, California has declared a drought emergency. Yeah, the no rain thing is […]

Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

This is ridiculous! No, not the book. My attempt at writing this review is ridiculous. I have rewrote it so many times, that I’m ready to just wash my hands of it. It should not be this difficult, but Uninvited gave me so many mixed feelings and had me all over the place. I was […]

Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones

Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones

I read First Grave on the Right over a year ago during a read-along and was immediately hooked. Unfortunately it took me way too long to finally read Second Grave on the Left. I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner, because it is even better than the first book. I’m the type who can […]
