DNF. Mini-mini review (There are mini reviews, then there are mini mini reviews which are like 3 paragraphs long) Stopped at 31%
It has come to my great despair to not finish this book. I have heard several great thoughts and reviews of Strange Angels so I assumed this would be just as good or even better. Well..maybe not. Originally, I started to read this book about a month ago, I stopped within 5 pages due to its mind fumbling writing and slow pace. At...more
Edit: Rezension - Lesen auf eigene Gefahr! xD
I fell in love with St. Crow's Strange Angels series and have been desperately hoping that each new YA book she writes will somehow come close to that series. It seems I'm doomed to disappointment, or at least I am with this particular series and the Romances of Arquitaine series.
Unfortunately, it seems Ms. St. Crow creates a more compelling story when she is...more
Camille was found by the side of the road by her adoptive father when she was six years old, her body battered and poorly clad. Despite being a different race (she - human, he - vampire), he open...more
But. Reading this book was clearly a challenge. The author begins by making us imagine this world filled with Jacks, Minotaurs, Twisted etc and not giving any explanation to what they actually are. It wa confusing to just second-guess all the new terms in the book, and later on i just found myself giving up deciphiring them entirely. It disappointed me when I came to the last pa...more
What promised to be a beautiful book filled with danger and excitement and a stunning world just flopped right before my eyes. I kept reading and reading, and as I crept through the book I kept thinking to myself, it has to get better by now. It has to. ONLY NOPE. Some of the descriptions were pretty. Not that they made all that much sense. The situation that Cami finds herself in had real potential to be interesting! Only for Cami to be severely underutil...more
However, I didn’t like...more
Nameless is the first novel in the new series Tales of Beauty and Madness by the New York Times' bestselling author Lili St. Crow. This story is a dystopian/fantasy retelling of Snow White, which immediately caught my attention.
I loved the storyline of this book; it was dark and it had so many twists and turns that were never expected. The representations of the characters were so well done that, even though you could tell who was w...more
Love. Love. Love. Love. This book was by far the best spin on Snow White. I could not have been more in love with the way this book was written. This book pulled you in, and has you mesmerized from page one.
Camille is amazing. She is self conscious, she puts everyone before herself, strong, and beautiful. There is also Nico who is strong, sexy, overprotective, sweet, unpredictable and totally in love with her. She may not think so at first but as her nightmares get worse, she realizes...more

Rating: 4.7 stars
Nameless was an addictive story of mystery, intrigue, and love. Well, sorta. I loved the uniqueness of the characters even though the idea of the story was quite common. I loved how Camille was taken seriously all the time even though she seemed to literally throw herself into danger. Not exactly too bright either. Nico was pretty hard-core but often vacant. I'd have liked more of him. His relationship with Cami was sort of half-...more
If you ask me to give you a little rundown of this book, then I'll have to decline becaus...more
Cami was found in the snow at six years old and adopted by the well-known Vultusino Family. She stutters when she talks and only opens up to her best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and her step-brother Nico (who may or m...more

St Crow has set up a magical world and jumped in with terminology from the get-go with words than have no context, no explanation, no meaning with the reader. “Ellie would use her Babbage-net connection—St. Juno’s required one and logged student times, and the principal Mother Heloise knew s...more
My only problem was the amount of language. The book has it on almost every page. I would have enjoyed this book more if there wasn't so much. F-bombs s-words j...more
Rather good for a fairy tale re-telling.
I liked the mafia theme, the fancy style and how intense Nico was.
What I didn't like was the beginning which was overloaded with in-world terminology like 'Twists' or 'Dead Harvest'... It was difficult to focus on the story, but once you got used to it, it was okay, I guess.
Where do I start with this review?
There were so many things that bothered me about this book. First, the author introduces this brand new world of vampires (they are just called something else that I can not remember now) and they are divided into Families. There are other magical creatures and places ment...more
Nameless is jarring, confusing, bizarre, disjointed and dark and addictive ... so I kept reading
