Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2) by Kiersten White

Supernaturally, the second installement in Kiersten White’s Paranormalcy series,  fails to live up to the spunkyness and originality of the first book. Evie still rocks as a YA heroine, but her insecurities throughout the book (while normal for a teen) drag the plot down. Evie finally has the normal life she’s been waiting for. Only one thing: normal is … Continue reading

Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Wolfsbane, the second installment in Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade series, will have you snarling for the next book. I grew to love Calla even more, enjoyed learning about the Searchers and their history, and found myself rooting for Ren over Shay. We find Calla just where we left her: captured by the Searchers, the worst enemy … Continue reading

The Sleepwalkers by J. Gabriel Gates

The Sleepwalkers

The Sleepwalkers by J. Gabriel Gates is a great book to read during the Halloween season. It’s got ghosts, an insane asylum, and one scary-ass clown. The characters felt a little flat, and I had a hard time with the third person present POV, but the book is very cinematic. I could totally see this … Continue reading

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

A review of Shade

I blew through this book! The fast (if somewhat predictable) plot, interesting mythology, and spunky characters ensure that I’ll be reading the next book in this series. Aura Salvatore is just your average Post-Shift high school student. She wears red so the ghosts don’t bother her during the day, changes to something professional to complete … Continue reading

Bone Dressing by Michelle Brooks

Bone Dressng was one of the worst books I’ve tried to read in a long time. It’s basically narrated by the most annoying teen in the world, Sydney Roberdeau. In real life, I’m pretty sure Syd would be be an up-talker. Now, I didn’t finish this book. I got roughly half way through it and … Continue reading

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

The final installment of the Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy doesn’t live up to the action and emotion-packed first two novels, Shiver and Linger. The slow plot arc, focus on too-familiar characters, and open ending left me unsatisfied at the end of the book. The book begins with Grace as a wolf, and Sam waiting for her … Continue reading

The Poisoned House by Michael Ford

The Poisoned House by Michael Ford is a short  book, but a blast to read. Abigail Tamper confronts villains, ghosts, and general hardship at every turn. Born to a nurse in Greave Hall and a now-deceased watch-maker, Abigail Tamper grew up pretty privileged for her situation. She learned to read and even write along with Samuel, Lord Greave’s … Continue reading

Camille by Tess Oliver

Camille and Dr. Bennett are scientists looking for a cure…to lycanthropy. The concept and the setting for Tess Oliver’s Camille are fun at first, but half way through this book takes a turn towards mushiness. When the moon is full, Camille and Dr. Bennett walk the streets of London, searching for rogue werewolves. They hunt … Continue reading

Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin, Book 1) by Jennifer Estep

An unbeatable assassin, a sexy cop, and a bitch of an enemy: Spider’s Bite, the first book in the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep, has a fun plot and a cast of intense characters, but the writing issues and the unbelievability of the main character’s emotions often got in the way of the pacing. … Continue reading

The Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking

Amanda Hocking puts a glamourus twist on the earthy troll mythology in her Trylle trilogy (Switched, Torn, Ascend). The interesting world, foxy men, and fast-paced plot will keep you up late as you race to finish this great series. Wendy has never felt like she fit in. Wendy’s mother didn’t think so either, and attacked … Continue reading
