Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

March 13, 2014 Reviews 0 ½

I am severely disappointed. It's a miracle I managed to finish this, and the whole time I was filled with despair and rage. Let us begin. Somewhere along the way this series stopped being about Juliette and the Reestablishment and her leaning to use her powers to bring it down. Somewhere in the second book, the focus shifted to a massive, annoying love triangle, which eclipsed everything else. Unravel Me sowed the seeds, trying to make Warner look like a human being, and having Adam pull away from Juliette, because it was killing him to resist Juliette's powers. The novella...

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

March 9, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★

The novellas for this series seem pretty divisive. When Destroy Me came out everyone was swooning over Warner and at the announcement of Fracture Me there was a lot of back-lash over it being from Adam’s point of view, and not Warner’s (or even Kenji’s). So much of the conversation in the fandom…

January 30, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

I’m reading this long, long after I’ve read Unravel Me, which I think is both a positive and a negative. A positive because I’m not hankering to know what happens next, but a negative because the experience of reading Unravel Me would have been richer for knowing what this novella…

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

September 2, 2013 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

A perfect, exhilarating blend of fantasy, dystopia and science fiction, The Bone Season is one of the must-read books of 2013. There’s no other way to say it – this is as close to a perfect book as I’ve ever read. The voice of the narrative is the first thing…

The Ward by Jordana Frankel

The Ward by Jordana Frankel

May 21, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★

The idea behind this book is interesting, and I think I could have enjoyed it a lot more if it didn’t suffer from the weird, stilted romance, and the shaky world building. The Ward is a dystopian novel that takes mixes two staples of mankind’s story-telling – the Great Flood…

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

April 30, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I thought it couldn’t get any better than The Immortal Rules. I was wrong. The Eternity Cure blew me away, I read it quickly, feverishly, my heart pumping and my mind racing as I tried to anticipate every twist and turn. Allison is out to save her sire, Kanin, who…

April 25, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

I’ve had this book for a long time, and I didn’t read it because I was sick of dystopias. But once I started it, less than 24 hours ago, I couldn’t put it down. Lots of novels these days get tagged “perfect for fans of The Hunger Games” and usually, it’s…
