The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

November 28, 2013 Reviews 1

Knowing how much heartache the third book of the Vampire Academy books caused - especially, how painful the ending was - I hope I can be forgiven for putting off The Indigo Spell for as long as I did. I wanted to have The Fiery Heart in my hands in the hopes of not dying from the emotions. I am so glad I made that decision, even though I think I'll end up regretting it when I reach the end of The Fiery Heart. My favourite thing about this book is the character development.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

May 19, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★★½

The 5th Wave is an enjoyable action adventure story set amongst a terrifying alien invasion. While the premise and world building of the novel are great, it is let down by some of its characters and its nonsensical romances. The truth is, once they found us, we were toast. ————–…

The Farm by Emily McKay

February 8, 2013 Reviews 0

I was pleasantly surprised by The Farm: I wasn’t expecting to be quite as thrilling and enjoyable as it is. Well constructed and delivered, The Farm was let down by the narrow-mindedness of its main character. During their six month imprisonment in The Farm, Lily has been taking care of…

I’ve waited so long for this book, but when I finally got it, I was afraid to start reading – what if it wasn’t as good as Cinder, what if I don’t like Scarlet, is there enough Kai in it? Scarlet, I am ecstatic to say, is just as awesome…
