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

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 sorta vacant. I'd have liked more of him. His relationship with Cami was sort of half-
Unless they’re giving you goatse. Don’t look that up if you don’t know what it is btw.
Nameless wasn’t a perfect novel, but it was an enjoyable novel. I feel like most of the things it set out to do, it accom...more
Edit: Rezension - Lesen auf eigene Gefahr! xD
The book starts off with a flashback, telling us how Papa Vultusino (g...more
No matter how much money she has in her purse, or how protected she is as a Vultusino, Cami knows that she's different from everyone around her. For starters, she doesn't have fangs, and once she's dead, she's staying put in her coffin, thank you very much. Cami thinks that she is living a lie, and when the mysterious new gardener makes her question everything she's been keeping inside, Cami's not going to stay put within the Vultusino territory when she could have actual ans...more
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

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
1. LOVED Camille and Nico as characters. Nico might be pushy but I definitely saw the draw between himself and Camille so there was never doubt that she wouldn't stay with him
2. I was curious and always trying to understand how the conventional Snow White plot fit into this story. In each new twist or development, I'd furiously be reading faster and simultaneously wanting to slow down, sit back and predict the plot on my own....more

I absolutely jumped for joy when I received this book to review. I am a MASSIVE fan of Lilith Saintcrow and I couldn't wait to devour every page! And devour it I did - in a couple of sittings! It's INCREDIBLE!
Nameless is totally upfront about the fact that it's a reimagining of Snow White but you'd never guess that from the opening:
Of all the cars in New Haven to fall before, I chose Papa Vultosino's long black limousine.
The Dead Harvest had...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
This book has completely different world, so the author has to explain it to us, Ok it doesn't have to be a whole chapter about it, but it has to be there.
There are a lot of things that I have no idea what it means and how that h...more
