Blood Blockade Battlefront Volume 1
3.43
I want to rate this one higher, but it really didn't catch me the way a first volume should. It assumes too much about the characters that it introduc ...more

I don't know if having the actual book in my hand would have fixed this, but the type was cramped. At times I had trouble reading it, so much so that ...more

I've decided that this author is particularly evil because he must realize that ending books the way he does isn't right in by any definition of the w ...more

The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)
3.95
This book is really more of a 4.5 star book than a 5 star, but it is closer to a 5 star than a 4 star so I'll give it the extra .5 ^.^
I was a bit hesi

The Dark Zone: A Galahad Book

From Angels to Aliens: Teenagers, the Media, and the Supernatural

While the book is written on a very interesting topic, the format does detract a bit from the subject. The author repeated some of her own sentences a ...more

Angel/Dust

I'm somewhat ambivalent about this one. The story isn't very original, but the way the old plot ideas come together is a bit original. The angels are ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Thom is a pretty good character who mostly deals with his problems in a realistic, if a bit dramatic, manner. I did find m ...more

Speaker for the Dead (The Ender Quintet, #2)

I have trouble remembering what this book is about. I'd have to read it again to give a truly fair view of it. I do remember there being interaction w ...more

Xenocide (The Ender Quintet, #3)

Heir to the Empire (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, #1)

Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace (Star Wars, #1)

I liked Brooks' novelization of the movie. It wasn't so in line with the movie that it felt like a repeat. It was well written and paced, but the stor ...more

Wraith Squadron (Star Wars: X-Wing, #5)

This was probably one of the best of the X-Wing books. The characters that made up Wraith Squadron were edgier than Rogue Squadron. They just apealed ...more

Ambush at Corellia (Star Wars: The Corellian Trilogy, #1)

This trilogy was a bit slow. It didn't have enough of Luke in it to really catch my full attention at the time.
