Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

When Holly Black writes a novel she means business. Her words are as captivating as her world. Her ability to paint a picture of scenes of faerie romance, glamour, deception, and terror amaze’s me. Her stories make your heart pound. You genuinely feel like you are in the story with her characters. To me, faeries were annoying ugly creatures but Holly Black literally reinvents them and makes them into something that is powerful and sexy. Typical stories that contain faeries…

Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

When I first read this book I was hooked from the very first page! Cassandra Clare is such a talented writer who takes the ordinary streets of New York and completely transforms it into her own world. She has such a vivid way of story telling that you can just picture everything that you are being told and be transported into such a beautiful world. This story is such a good book that leaves the reader just wanting more; you…

Review: The New Dark by Lorraine Thompson

Review: The New Dark by Lorraine Thompson

The blurb for this book was everything and that’s a problem. It gave so much potential I thought this book was going to brilliant and boy was I wrong. I hate when a blurb hooks you, it just disappoints the heck out of me when I actually read the book and it’s not as good as the blurb. I really liked the idea of the book and the first few chapters had me hooked I really thought I was going…

Review: There Be Demons by M.K. Theodoratus

Review: There Be Demons by M.K. Theodoratus

This book is a very entertaining and interesting book with the fantasy concept that I can enjoy, although it has a unique take compared to other books that are in its type of genre. M.K. Theodoratus creates some sort of environment with a mixture of magic with the mix of fighting demonic presence. It is a vivid and imaginative take on this world and it just draws the reader completely in. The characters seem young for the type of task that…

Review: All the Wrong Chords by Christine Hurley Deriso

Review: All the Wrong Chords by Christine Hurley Deriso

So as you can see I gave this book 1 star and I hate myself for it. I hate giving bad reviews but I just really couldn’t get into it. The story line just wasn’t there and I kept getting lost and incredibly confused as to what was happening. I did finish this book even though it bored me to death. I just don’t know what was wrong with it, it was like the author was just trying to hard…

Review: Invaders From Beyond by Colin Sinclair, Tim Major and Julian Benson

Review: Invaders From Beyond by Colin Sinclair, Tim Major and Julian Benson

If my review could be based just on the first part of this book it would get 5 stars but unfortunately I can’t. Now the book started off brilliantly and I absolutely loved the first part, I really am wanting more. It was brilliant. I have to admit the science fiction genre isn’t normally something that I tend to read but I thought that I would give this a go. Now to start with I thought I made the correct…

Review: Someone to Love by Melissa de la Cruz

Review: Someone to Love by Melissa de la Cruz

I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn’t. Melissa de la Cruz is a very talented writer but this writing for this book just stank. I just failed to be able to connect to anything. I went into reading this book blind. I just requested it based on who the author is and her previous work in which I loved but this just wasn’t good. I’m glad I went into reading this book blind otherwise I would…

Review: If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I want MORE! This book took my heart and crushed it and I’m not ready for it to be over. I need her to write more pages in this book. It just wasn’t enough. I needed to know what happened beyond the point that she stopped it at. I suppose that is what the whole point was. To keep you wanting more. Which is exactly what I want. I cried at parts of this book. That’s how much it got…

Review: In the Shadows by E.J. Shaw

Review: In the Shadows by E.J. Shaw

The only thing worse then writing a bad review is not writing a review at all. I feel so awful for everything that I am about to write now but I need to be honest otherwise what would be the point in having a book blog. I could barely finish this book. I was just too boring for me and that sucked. I completely zoned out through it that I vaguely remember any of this book which just isn’t normal…

Review: Magnus and The Jewelled Book of the Universe by S. L. Browne

Review: Magnus and The Jewelled Book of the Universe by S. L. Browne

I sat down with this book and read it to my two year old child. See now he liked it and was extremely excited to have it read to him. This book is recommended for children ages 7 – 9 years old. Now for my two year old to be able to have some sort of understanding of this book amazed me because I had trouble myself following along with the book. The characters were okay, they weren’t mind blowing…
