Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★★

I heard about this book since Stephanie Meyer recommended it back when The Twilight Saga was just starting out and I immediately checked out the synopsis to see if it was something I’d be interested in. After finding out it was some kind of “adventure” book I wasn’t really into it. I’m more of a romantic novel kind of person, where the focus in on the two main characters falling… Read more »

Book Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

Shadowland is the 3rd installment in the Immortals Series by Alyson Noel. This book wasn’t really that great to me, probably because of the struggle of Ever and Damen’s relationship. Here, they have to deal with the consequences of Ever’s (stupid, albeit, understandable) decisions and Roman’s ever-growing presence. In this book I found the characters to be quite annoying, especially Haven, who inevitably plays a bigger role in this series… Read more »

Book Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★★

Blue Moon is the 2nd installment in the Immortals Series by Alyson Noel. I have to say that it is my favorite of the series so far. You really get to delve into the romantic and intimate parts of Ever and Damen’s relationship in the first half of this book. Honestly, I enjoyed this book so much I couldn’t put it down. I loved how “in love” Ever and Damen… Read more »

Book Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Book Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

I heard a lot of great things about this book and people were going pretty crazy about it on the internet so I had to give this a read. I have to say that it kept me wanting more and more as the book progressed. Becca Fitzpatrick sure does know how to write a good mystery/suspense story, which is what this book is mostly about. I expected another paranormal love… Read more »

Book Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Book Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

Since I’m a sucker for reading most books from the New York Times Bestsellers list, I decided to give this book a try. Although it definitely had its high points, and the love story was sweet and sincere, I didn’t really care for the book so much. I often got distracted and felt like it was dragging on, the only thing keeping me interested was the moments that Grace and… Read more »

Book Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Book Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

“Wake” is the first book in the Dream Catcher Series by Lisa McMann. Reading the synopsis in the back of the book got me really interested in this story. Entering someone’s dream, I’m sure, has always been a secret wish of many people out there. I suppose I should have looked at the pages before I thought about reading the book. The style of the book is written based on… Read more »

Book Review: Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Book Review: Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

Overall, I was very pleased with this book. It wasn’t a page-turner or an all-nighter, I’ll admit, but it was a good book. Throughout the whole book you get to see how Courtney evolves and realizes important aspects about herself and her life, also, how she comes to grips with the past and learns how to face the future. The relationship between her and her sisters can definitely be related… Read more »

Book Review: Evermore by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★★

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he… Read more »
