Book Review: The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics

Book Review: The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics

I cannot believe it took me this long to read this book. October was such a perfect month to read it in though because it was creepy as hell. Really good creepiness too, although the creepiness didn’t really kick in until about halfway through. I was disappointed by the first half of the book and very nearly DNFed it. Oh boy, am I glad I stuck it out. This was my first book by Lukavics, but it sure as hell […]

Book Review: Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

Book Review: Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. I wasn’t sure if I’d love it or hate it. It seemed to have everything I could ever want in a book, including hints of a lesbian romance, but I was still leery of it. Mostly because I am still not hugely into the fantasy genre, but I’ve read some truly great fantasy books lately, so I wanted to give this one a shot. I am so glad I did! It […]

Book Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Book Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

I had such a strange experience reading Even the Darkest Stars. I’m absolutely not the kind of reader who enjoys journey books. They’re just not for me. But when I picked this up–on a whim because the cover had been calling my name–I was pleasantly surprised. Of course, things went south in the middle for me, and it wasn’t perfect at all. But all told I definitely liked this more than I thought I would. Even the Darkest Stars relies […]

Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Holy crap on a cracker you guys! This book was insane, but in the best possible way. It pretty much left me for dead. In some ways, this book was even crazier than Weingarten’s previous book, Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls and I didn’t even know that was possible. Sasha was a character that I struggled to connect to. I don’t need to like the characters in a book, and generally in a book like this that doesn’t happen. Generally, […]

Book Review: This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

Book Review: This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

I honestly don’t even know what I am thinking or feeling right now. What the hell did I just read? This Darkness Mine is truly one of the most disturbing YA books I’ve ever read (though the title for most disturbing book of all goes to The Vegetarian). This book’s synopsis sounds much more romantic that the pages actually are – and not just regular romance; I mean cleaner, nicer. This was actually sick and disgusting and confusing and yet […]

DNF Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

DNF Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

I made it about one third of the way into An Enchantment of Ravens before I gave up. It’s not that this was overtly terrible or anything, but it was so.. shallow and unfulfilling. There was so much potential here and it simply did not live up to it, despite the engaging opening and funny main character. The biggest complaint I have is the lack of emotional depth. Though the relationship between Isobel and Rook took a few weeks or […]

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

I kind of took a chance on this book. For one thing, it’s a Persuasion retelling and I’ve never read the source material. For another, it’s an adult contemporary romance, a genre from which I’ve read exactly zero books. Oh, and on top of that, I’ve never read a second-chance romance. The One That Got Away is all of these things I’m inexperienced with, but the blurb sounded cute and the setting of a castle in England sounded great. And […]
