City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | Book Review

I started reading this book because I knew I wanted to read it before seeing the movie (and I did the right thing!  More about the movie in different post). This book was a slow start for me.  In fact, I had to force myself to finish reading it in time for the movie.  It wasn’t that I did not enjoy it, I did but the first few chapters did not catch my interest at all.  I remember starting to read this a few years back but I couldn’t push through. That being said, once I got into the story, […]

Everneath by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

Everneath by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

Everneath is loosely based on the Greek mythology of Persephone and Hades and of Orpheus and Eurydice with mentions of the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris.  The story starts 6 human months after the feed where the main protagonist Nikki awakens after being sent to the Everneath (or the Underworld).  The Feed or Feeding is the way an Everliving (those immortals that live in the Underworld) can continue their immortal lives by stealing/feeding on the emotions and memories of the living (humans).  The feed lasts for a hundred years which is like 6 months of human time.  Once you have been […]

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This story is pretty tough for me to review.  At this time, I do not want to give out a summary of the story and I will just go ahead and give my thoughts.  The story starts, innocently enough with a mermaid, Anna rescuing an angel falling from the sky.  Apparently, this angel, Jonah was wounded in a war between Angels and Dark Ones that has been going on for centuries.  Wounded and unable to fly, Anna saves him and with his direction, brought him to an underwater cavern that has magical properties.  At this point, Jonah asks […]

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Book Review

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS What more is there to say about Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight? I understand that it is a very popular book, but this book didn’t capture me as it should have. I struggled while reading this book. First, I didn’t really get the obsessive love/relationship Bella had with Edward. The times that Edward was watching Bella while sleeping without her knowing really creeped me out. I thought it wasn’t very romantic (although some might view it as romantic) and it felt stalker-ish. Next, I hated that these breed of vampires glittered in the sunlight. This really re-wrote the vampire lore […]

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This book is the first one that I read in the series and I am now reading the backlist! I had heard a lot about the Love at Stake Series but as I am not that fond of Paranormal Romance, I decided to skip it. However, I met Kerrelyn Sparks at the RT Booklovers Book Fair in Los Angeles in April and I got a signed copy of this book just for the heck of it. I started reading this when I got home and I could not put it down! I enjoyed the sparks that flew between […]

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Disappointment does not begin to cover what I felt when I read the sequel to Firelight. I just could not get the love triangle between Jacinda, Will and Cassian.  I just wanted to hit Jacinda in the head. So much so that I just could not finish this book!  I didn’t even flip ahead to see how the whole book ended!  I just thought it was so ridiculous for Jacinda to be flirting with these two guys when she was already in love with Will!  Agh!  To top it all off, she goes and runs away to Will, […]

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I was a little bit disappointed about this sequel. Again, this book left me hanging and there was still a lot of issues that were left unanswered.  To be honest, I am still a little bit puzzled about the development of Daniel and Luce’s love story. True, they are destined to be together and have been falling in love in their past lives, but it was hard to believe how they fell in love in THIS life. It also seemed that Luce was not that interested with Daniel since it was apparent that she was flirting with another […]
