Review: Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell

Review: Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell

This might be one of the hardest books I’ve ever had to rate, because on one hand, the plot is completely, thoroughly, and endlessly ludicrous, and it features one of the most distasteful (and not in a fun way) narrators I’ve ever come across.  On the other hand, once I picked it up, I also could not stop myself from turning the pages.  DNF’ing was never an option.  There might have been a bit of a “can’t turn away from this… Read more »

Reading Peer Pressure and Thoughts on Allegiant

Reading Peer Pressure and Thoughts on Allegiant

Do you ever read books, not because you necessarily want to, but because you feel it’s your duty as a blogger?  This is what Allegiant did to me.  I liked Divergent and Insurgent well enough, but I did not feel any particular passion for them.  And since I read them before I started blogging, it was a choice, but not an obligation.  I would have been perfectly fine throwing in the towel after Insurgent, but all of the hype surrounding… Read more »

Review: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Review: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

If I told you that a book with a heavy focus on the gathering, purification, and consumption of water was beautiful in an indescribable way, would you be tempted to side-eye me?  Don’t even think about it, because with Not a Drop to Drink, Mindy McGinnis has written a book packed full of breath-taking moments, fantastic characters, and yes, lots of information about water.  Every author presented with the challenge of conveying a great deal of information to the reader,… Read more »

Review: Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley

Review: Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley

Here are a few of the emotions that I experienced while reading Pretty Girl-13: Rage Despair Terror Hopelessness The ending is lighter, relatively speaking, but you must go through hell with Angie to get there.When I was around 7 or 8, I read a People magazine story about Patty Hearst.  It was awful and scary, and I remember asking my mother, “What is rape?” and her reply was an uncomfortable laugh.  She didn’t answer my question, so I knew it… Read more »

Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

“It would be like you deciding if it was worth befriending a butterfly, even though it wouldn’t be there in the morning.” If you imagine a dog that has been abused by people its entire life, you have a sense of Ana, the narrator of “Incarnate”. Ana is wary, distrusting of kindness, and extremely cautious, and she has good reason. During the eighteen years of her life, she suffered constant abuse at the hands of her mother, Li. Ana inhabits… Read more »

Review: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Review: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

“We were in this together now. Neither of us were alone. Asunder.” Asunder picks up shortly after the events of Templedark which destroyed dozens of souls and devastated the remaining citizens of Heart. Those who were suspicious of Ana before Templedark are even less inclined to welcome her now. Ana craves acceptance, despite her “nosoul” status. Fortunately, she still has Sam by her side, and he repeatedly demonstrates his willingness to put himself on the line for Ana. I enjoyed… Read more »
