Review: Memnoch the Devil (Vampire Chronicles #5)

December 21, 2012

Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice My rating: 2 of 5 stars This book was extremely disappointing to me. I love Lestat and I cherish the time I spend getting to know him and all of his adventures but feel like this was completely outside the Chronicles and was more a pedestal for the author […]


Review: Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades #2)

December 17, 2012

Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James My rating: 2 of 5 stars This book would have received a 1 star rating if I had quit reading at 41% (which is what I wanted to do) if it hadn’t been for my StepMom who edged me on. Having done so successfully, I kept reading and found […]


Review: A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice & Fire #3)

December 14, 2012

A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars Spoiler Alert!! Sorry… These books are so crazy. I try to use spoiler tags but I think I let some stuff slip. Just be warned! Yea, wow! First of all… the amount of dead in this book was crazy. You couldn’t […]


Review: Warm Bodies

November 18, 2012

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion My rating: 5 of 5 stars I seriously don’t know which “shelf” to put this book into! Is it dystopian? horror? comedy? romance? gothic/macabre? seriously…? I loved it. I read it in one sitting (minus a four hour nap) which I rarely do. Although, this was pretty short, so.. I […]


Review: Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson #4)

November 4, 2012

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones My rating: 5 of 5 stars These books are just amazing. I enjoyed this book just as much as all the others as that came before it. I am really glad that they finally progressed the relationship between Charley and Reyes. I have been waiting for some […]


Review: Pure

October 30, 2012

Pure by Julianna Baggott My rating: 3 of 5 stars “We each have a story. They did this to us. There was no outside aggressor. They wanted an Apocalypse. They wanted the end. And they made it happen. It was orchestrated – who got in, who didn’t. There was a master list. We weren’t on […]


Review: The Shining

October 26, 2012

The Shining by Stephen King My rating: 4 of 5 stars There was so much of this book that was not in the movie that it amazed me that the movie got such great reviews!! I watched the movie several times growing up and so I knew the story pretty well. I have been really […]


Review: Hidden (House of Night #10)

October 19, 2012

Hidden by P.C. Cast My rating: 5 of 5 stars Hidden was yet another AMAZING installment of the House of Night series. ♥ In so many of the HoN books, you get the struggle between good and evil. Many of the earlier books had main characters really struggling with their righteousness. Zoey lied to her […]


Review: Memories of the Future – Volume 1

October 3, 2012

Memories of the Future – Volume 1 by Wil Wheaton My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is not the type of book that I typically read. I am usually in to fantasy or sci-fi. I am a huge Star Trek fan, though, so this title seemed intriguing to me. I was not expecting the […]

Review: The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies #3)

September 10, 2012

The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore My rating: 5 of 5 stars These books are so awesome. I have a real problem when books bring you in then don’t deliver, and I have not been dissatisfied yet. Book one had a little more romance than I would like but made up for it with […]


Review: Insurgent (Divergent #2)

September 3, 2012

Insurgent by Veronica Roth My rating: 3 of 5 stars Until I found out that there will be a third book, I was quite irritated toward this book. The ending was a non-ending, which makes more sense if a 3rd book is on the way. But beside that, there were a lot of little things […]


Review: Dexter in the Dark (Dexter #3)

August 19, 2012

Dexter in the Dark by Jeff Lindsay My rating: 4 of 5 stars SLIGHT PLOT SPOILER AHEAD. I usually spoiler-tag my review spoilers but I don’t believe I am giving away any details – I just felt it necessary to warn you about a slight left turn that the series takes which seems to have […]
