Review: Hallowed, Cynthia Hand

Review: Hallowed, Cynthia Hand

Our purpose on this earth is not one single event, an accomplishment we can check off a list. There is no test. No passing or failing. There’s only us, each moment shaping who we are, into what we will become. Sigh, what a beautiful novel.  Hallowed is the 2nd instalment… Read more »

…and while I am Death’s daughter and walk in His dark shadow, surely the darkness can give way to light sometimes. This book was released shortly after I started book blogging and I seemed to see rave reviews for it everywhere.  I desperately wanted to read it and while it… Read more »

Review: Dreamless, Josephine Angelini

…try to remember that dreams do come true, but they don’t come easily. I was so excited to start reading Dreamless, I loved Starcrossed when I read it last year and thought it was very unique the way it revamped Helen, the Trojan Wars and the face that launched 1000… Read more »

Review: Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver

Review: Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver

In approved places, every story serves a purpose. But forbidden books are so much more. Some of them are webs; you can feel your way along their threads, but just barely, into strange and dark corners. Some of them are balloons bobbing up through the sky: totally self-contained, and unreachable,… Read more »

Review: Hemlock, Kathleen Peacock

Kyle took a deep breath, like he had picked up on the question I hadn’t asked. That was one of the differences between him and Jason: Kyle always gave just as much weight and consideration to the things I didn’t say as to the things I did. When I first… Read more »

Review: The Hunt, Andrew Fukuda

Review: The Hunt, Andrew Fukuda

I remember the Hunt from ten years ago. How for months afterward I didn’t dare fall asleep because of the nightmares that would invade my mind: hideous images of an imagines Hunt, wet and violent and full of blood.  Horrific cries of fear and panic, the sound of flesh ripped… Read more »

Review: Masque of the Red Death, Bethany Griffin

“And I’m falling in love with you,” he whispers. “But I would throw you in the water and watch crocodiles tear you to bits, if I thought that doing so would accomplish my goals. Do. Not. Trust. Anyone. Especially me.” The premise of this book really drew me in.  It… Read more »

Review: Night Beach, Kirsty Eagar

Review: Night Beach, Kirsty Eagar

I don’t want romance and stolen kisses and sweetness and hand holding. I want something so big it’s like two planets colliding, with an aftershock that I feel for the rest of my life. Where to start with this book.  This is not a run of the mill Young Adult… Read more »
