Is that Cinderella’s castle?! Why yes, yes it is. I recently went on a trip to Disney and the only book I brought along, to be read on the flights only cause um.. Disney World, was Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu the second in the DC Icons series. I was so excited to get this book when it came out that it was a wonder I waited until my trip to read it. Batman is my ALL time favorite super hero. I have always loved the comics, shows, and movies. I love all the villains and heros that make up the city of Gotham. That is why it really saddens me to say I was completely underwhelmed by this book and only rate it 3 stars. Quite honestly I think its only that high just for the sole reason that this is a Batman book and I didn’t have the heart to rate it lower.
I absolutely loved How to Hang a Witch and all its witchy goodness. I wish I could reread it again for my first time and fall in love all over again. A ghost and witch story that is on the same level of scare factor as Hocus Pocus, but just as wickedly fun. I cannot wait to go out and grab Adriana’s next book and follow Samantha on her next journey. 4.5 out of 5 stars for me on this one!
“Almost everything worth believing in cannot be seen. Love, for instance.”
I rate this young adult story 2 out of 5 stars. Thank you so much Penguin Teen for sending this book to me in exchange for an honest review.
I was incredibly excited for this book. As someone who suffers from severe depression I like to read books that focus on mental illness or have story lines relating to it. I went into this book expecting something completely different from what it ended up being. Unfortunately, after some thought, I was mostly just disappointed in a book that had great potential.
Thank you so much PenguinTeen for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review! I am stuck between a 3.5 or 4 star rating. So on my Goodreads I have it rounded to 4 Stars!
I had a really fun time reading this book and I won’t lie when I say I jumped a little that night after I finished reading, worried there was someone lurking around. You know when Halloween time starts to roll around and you just want to sit and watch some slasher movie that isn’t the worlds best, but it is just so perfect for the time and mood? Thats exactly how I would describe Stephanie Perkins’ newest novel. A high school slasher with your average dose of romance and sex and tons of gory bits to keep you on edge. While the exact reason behind the killings and some of the “secrets” leave a little to be desired, the overall experience was fun and well worth it. I soaked in this bloody, thrilling read in a day and I enjoyed every second of it.
I really, reallyyyy enjoyed this book. And while I would love to give it 5 stars on principle because it’s WONDER WOMAN, I have to stick with 4 stars, which still means I REALLY LIKED IT, how could you not? Badass females, diversity, humor, greek mythology, adventure and action, yes please! But, I wasn’t left feeling blown away and there was one thing I was a bit iffy on, but *shrug* this book is still amazing and you are crazy if you don’t pick this one up!
Probably my favorite read of 2017 so far!! From page one I was immersed into this brilliantly colorful futuristic world created by Marie Lu. Seriously, that world building though, holy cow. A story about a female hacker and bounty hunter in a world dominated by virtual reality and gaming, an unknown threat on the virtual world mixed with a dash of romance… Yup, I’m hooked. Every time I opened this book I sped through it. It is an action packed story full of twists and turns, leaving you wanting more, I promise you won’t want to put it down!
