The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)
3.97
I wanted to like this book more than I actually liked it. The characters were all interesting and sympathetic, even though I found the multiple POVs j...more

The Demon King (Seven Realms, #1)
4.22
At first I thought this was just going to be another Lord of the Rings-lite epic fantasy. It had all the signs: an evil amulet, wizards, dark and twis...more

Revolution

Maybe my expectations for this book were too high, but I found it to be very uneven. I picked it up mainly for the bits about the French Revolution, b...more

The Unbound (The Archived, #2)
4.40
As exciting as the first ones, but somehow I'm less forgiving this time around of the flat characters and too-quick resolution.

My Life in Pink & Green

My Most Excellent Year

I enjoyed this book, but what's with all the YA about incredible fabulous teens that are more sophisticated and mature than most of the grown-ups I kn...more

Every Day (Every Day #1)

I would not have liked this when I was an actual teenager, but I feel like this book might truly be more enjoyable for a teen than an adult. I really...more

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Didn't have to read much to tell that I did not want to read this book AT ALL. The writing is clunky and the main character seems to spend a lot of ti...more

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)
3.99
Sort of a companion book to Anna and the French Kiss. Without the descriptions of Paris, this kind of plot seems a lot more cliched and ended up falli...more

The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, #3)

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)

I'm getting pretty sick of love triangles in YA, but I was more upset that the plot made almost no progress. I kept waiting for some big reveal, betra...more

The Runaway King (The Ascendance Trilogy, #2)

I don't know why this one felt so much worse than the first. Maybe it was because I read Eleanor and Park right before starting it? Or maybe because i...more

Tell the Wolves I'm Home
4.03
I'd give this 3 1/2 stars. The middle of the book seemed to drag, both from a plot perspective and because of the grimness of the story. I loved June...more

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

It has it's flaws, but I still raced through it. If I were rating for quality I might give it 2 1/2 or 3 stars, but for enjoyment it was a 4. (Flaws =...more

Princess of the Midnight Ball (Princess, #1)
3.90
I think my favorite thing about this book might be the knitting patterns in the back. And that the male hero is the one doing the knitting. Awesome!
