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 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.

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

Calla Tor is the future female alpha of the new Guardian pack, a group of wolves who keep the  magical … Continue reading


Linger brings a sadness and intensity to Maggie Stiefvater‘s Wolves of Mercy Falls series. Like in all good YA novels, the beauty in this book came out of the complicated relationships, and not some crazy, intricate plot. “This is a love story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who … Continue reading
