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

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

Next up for Stephenie Meyer

I read on Vanity Fair earlier today about the (maybe) next book by Twilight author Stephanie Meyer. Sadly, it doesn’t sound terribly different from the Twilight series.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

The excellent writing, fabulous world-building, and deep side characters make up for the insecure and often whiny protagonist in Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Angel. The end of the book gives us a glimmer of hope that Tessa could someday be the heroine we’ve been waiting for. After the sudden death of her Aunt Harriet, Tessa leaves … Continue reading

Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn

This great urban fantasy series by Carrie Vaughn stars spunky, independent werewolf Kitty Norville. Becoming a werewolf changed Kitty’s life, but she refused to let it ruin it as well.
