Book Review: Tear You Apart

Book Review: Tear You Apart

Tear You Apart was not quite what I was expecting. Viv lives in a world of the wealthy, where curses can be bought and the roles are played out by those involved in your life. Viv becomes Snow White, her boyfriend The Huntman instead of the Prince… and her stepmother must play out her role as well. An interesting concept and one that I enjoyed, but I did hate Viv so much… she was spoiled, toyed with her boyfriend whenever she felt insecure and still wanted the perfect happily ever after. As much as I disliked Viv, I really enjoyed […]

Book Review: Of Monsters and Madness

Of Monsters and Madness is a twist on some of Edgar Allan’s Poe’s stories, our main character Annabel Lee being from a poem he wrote. She is coming to live with her father since her mother passed away. She finds herself in Pennsylvania and is naive of the ways that society works in the 1800s. Her father is cold and all she wants to do is please him. Annabel finds comfort in her grandfather, but a rash of murders and her father’s strange hobbies soon make her life a bit more complicated. One of my favorite parts of the story […]

If you haven’t heard already, The Shadow Prince is a retelling of sorts of the Persephone myth with lots of […]

Book Review: Monsters

Book Review: Monsters

I adored Ashes. Left Shadows feeling a little confused. With Monsters, the confusion was back a hundred fold. While I love that I finally got the conclusion that I had been waiting for, part of me wishes that it had been simpler. Monsters is a monster of a book. Clocking in at almost 700 pages, Monsters often felt and read like multiple reads crammed into one. Many details of the numerous plot lines have been waiting it seems till Monsters to finally come together. Leaving the reader to jump from resolution to another. While this may work at times, it […]

Book Review: Nobody

Book Review: Nobody

Sometimes you go into a book knowing exactly what you are getting. Sometimes you don't. With Jennifer Lynn Barnes' newest read, I thought I knew what I was getting into. But I was wrong, oh so wrong. Nobody, on the surface, seems to be pretty straight forward. A secret society of people with a special weapon, a person (aka a Nobody) that can turn invisible, so to speak, fighting to stopping bad guys from ruining the world. If that was all Nobody was, then I think it would have been a much easier book to swallow. But it wasn't. There […]
