The Near Witch

The Near Witch - Victoria Schwab Okay...fail...just FAIL.

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) - Richelle Mead 3.5*

Rose's attitude really irked me. Why did she have to be so mean? And why did Lissa have to be so weak. Grr...should I continue on with the series? Will the story get better? Decisions, decisions.

The Unbound: An Archived Novel (Archived, The)

The Unbound - Victoria Schwab 4.5

I enjoyed it but there were parts that dragged on a bit too long. And the plot was pretty predictable. I was just reading and waiting for the main characters to see what I'd already figured out. BUT I enjoyed the action and the mystery. It was quite a ride and kept me intrigued. Well done Victoria...I look forward to number three...hopefully there will be one soon.

Archived, The

The Archived  - Victoria Schwab Excellent. Superb. Victoria Schwab just might be my new favorite author. Her writing pulls you in so strongly and keeps you there until the end. I cannot tell you how many mini heart attacks I've suffered while reading this.

Pushing the Limits (Harlequin Teen)

Pushing the Limits - Katie McGarry I can't understand why this book is written in alternating point of views. Both the characters sounded exactly the same to me. Also, they were bland. I just didn't fall in love with them. Maybe the next book will be better.

Black Heart (Curse Workers)

Black Heart - Holly Black 3.5 stars. It's been a long time since I've completed a trilogy. This was a nice conclusion. Everybody's happy.

Every You, Every Me

Every You, Every Me - Jonathan Farmer, David Levithan This book was very strange. I think the subject would have hit home more if I knew someone who was mentally disturbed personally. This book gives me great insight though. And now I know what a fractal is.

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments, Book 1)

City of Bones - Cassandra Clare Meh...I've read better.

The Lunar Chronicles: Cinder

The Lunar Chronicles: Cinder - Marissa Meyer There were some strange plot holes that I couldn't quite put my finger on...but it kept my attention.


VIcious - V.E. Schwab I can't even articulate the feelings. All of the feelings! Such dark characters...and yet I managed to fall in love with them. Amazingly done. This book has affected me like no other.

Opal (Lux, #3)

Opal (Lux, #3) - Jennifer L. Armentrout Well 3.5. The plot never took off until the very end :(

The Fellowship of the Ring: Being the First Part of The Lord of the Rings

The Fellowship of the Ring  - J.R.R. Tolkien Woo! What an adventure! I cannot wait to see what happens next!

Give a Boy a Gun

Give a Boy a Gun - Todd Strasser 3.5
This book is so depressing. The ending is absolutely heart-wrenching.

Red Glove (Curse Workers, Book 2)

Red Glove - Holly Black This book was so uneventful. Can we say filler? There was hardly any action.No conflict. I hope the third installment will be much better.

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore: A Novel

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore - Robin Sloan What a ride! This book is reminiscent of the movie National Treasure with all the riddles and puzzles and clues. Such unique ideas. This book had me on my toes the entire time.

Onyx (Lux, #2)

Onyx (Lux, #2) - Jennifer L. Armentrout This was so good. Definitely enjoyed it. Fast paced and exciting. The next thing is always a surprise.
