Summer Reading Series 2013: Obsidian

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’m so glad to have been pleasantly surprised with this YA series. I was starting to loose hope that maybe I was getting too old for the genre, because I hadn’t read a series that I had really, really loved in a long time. But Obsidian really captivated me, and I’m anxiously awaiting for the next two books to arrive on the library hold shelf for me. I’ll admit that at first I wasn’t impressed. First of all, Daemon was (and still is) a HUGE jerk. It seemed overdone. […]


Neglect

Posted June 22, 2013 in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

I know, I know. It’s so easy to get caught up in the crazy thing we call life and not even realize we’re neglecting things. I’m in the middle of moving, so my life has literally been a continuous cycle of packing boxes (mainly of clothes and books…). Although I picked up a book today at my local independent bookstore (yay for supporting the community πŸ™‚ ) and I am so beyond excited to read it!

Summer Reading Series 2013: Boundless

Boundless by Cynthia Hand My rating: 3 of 5 stars (3.5 out of 5 stars) I had this book waiting on my desk to read for a while, thinking, this will be a fantastic, enjoyable read, no problem. I had read the two previous novels in the series and had really liked them (as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a total sucker for angel/fallen angel books). And while this book does deliver at the ends, the first half was a real slough to get through. Since the first half of the book was relatively disappointing (at least for the standards I […]

Summer Reading Series 2013: Girl of Nightmares

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m glad I picked this sequel up because it’s really what a sequel should be- focused on tying up loose ends from the previous book and finishing the story rather than presenting a bunch of new plot lines. Girl of Nightmares is a quick, fun read, just like it’s predecessor, offering the same witty narrative and endearing characters as Anna Dressed in Blood . The sequel follows the aftermath of Anna disappearing into (what is assumed to be but is really open to interpretation) “hell” with the ghost […]
