Book Review: The Devil You Know by Trish Doller

Book Review: The Devil You Know by Trish Doller

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: A surprisingly good read that I devoured in a few hours. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This is actually my first Trish Doller book and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. You all know how hard it is for me to get into YA contemporary, and it’s even harder for me to really like a thriller/suspense, but Trish did a great job with this one. Sure,… Read more »

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: It was nice seeing how this series ends, even if the book itself didn’t have much going on. What I Loved: I really liked getting to know Nick, Kevin, and Cass more. They each have a certain quality that sets them apart from everyone else and it was interesting seeing them handle this bot war. I enjoyed the fledgling romance between Cass and Farryn and I liked seeing… Read more »

She also packed this book with plenty of action and delved even deeper into the inner workings of Talon. I loved it! Also, YAY for more dragons! While I had some difficulty picturing the actual… Read more »

Audiobook Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Audiobook Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★

One Line: A standout in the parallel dimension/time travel genre with massive potential. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Time travel or parallel universe storylines are always a bit iffy for me. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don’t. In this case, it worked. Gray’s idea of a firebird, a device that allows its user to travel through dimensions, was pretty interesting. I liked how she incorporated the physics into it… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman

Audiobook Review: Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★

One Line: Even though the story dragged for the most part, the characters were fascinating and made the book a memorable read for me. What I Loved: I loved meeting all of the other half-dragons and learning about their unique abilities and quirks. Seraphina’s “garden of the grotesque” was pretty interesting and those times when we were her head were pretty fascinating. The characters, both good and bad, were what… Read more »

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★½

One Line: An amazing retelling and introduction to a fascinating world. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Maas is pretty much a fantasy genius. She has this ability to create such fascinating worlds filled with captivating characters, and she just seems to get better and better. This book was so beautifully written and Maas tackles each aspect with flair. The fantasy world was intricate and the plot, albeit a little… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Get Even by Gretchen McNeil

Audiobook Review: Get Even by Gretchen McNeil

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

One Line: A guilty pleasure read in its finest, filled with drama and secrets that will keep you glued to the pages. In My Opinion: Add to cart! The synopsis wasn’t wrong when it said Get Even was similar to Pretty Little Liars, especially the TV show version. I swear I felt like I was watching an episode, or two, of Pretty Little Liars while reading this. Not only do… Read more »

Book Review: The Book of Ivy by Amy Angel

Book Review: The Book of Ivy by Amy Angel

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★½

One Line: A refreshing tale with one heck of a couple that sets it apart from all other Dystopians out today. What I Loved: Ivy. Plain and simple. That girl is just all kinds of awesome and I admired her character so much. Her loyalty was so unwavering, even when it was detrimental to her, she would not budge. And I appreciated her views on how their society was shaped… Read more »
