Froi of the Exiles (Lumatere Chronicles, #2)
I cannot write an adequate review of this book without spoiling major plot points. Proceed with caution.

The Fault in Our Stars

Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.

Celebrity in Death (In Death, #34)

Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy, #2)
Probably closer to 3.5. I need to reread this at some point and judge it again then. Not as enjoyable as the first book but it isn't a flop by any mea...more

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
More like 3.5; might make it to 4 when I sleep on it. I liked big chunks of this one, but I was disappointed and confused by other pieces. More to com...more

Hana (Delirium, #1.5)

Why We Broke Up
There is so much that I like about this book! It's a love-gone-wrong story told through a series of letters that focus on a memento per letter. It's a...more

Drowning Instinct
This book grabbed me from the beginning. Jenna's story is a mixed up mess of family issues, personal crisis, and sadness. There are elements present t...more

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)
I was disappointed with this book. Although Across the Universe wasn't perfect, it had a spark and a hook. I cared about Elder and Amy and was intrigu...more

Shades of Milk and Honey (Glamourist Histories, #1)
I'm so glad I took a chance on this book. It's been described as what a fantasy novel written by Jane Austen would turn out as, and that's a pretty ap...more

Pandemonium (Delirium, #2)
3.5 stars

The follow-up to Delirium is a solid story but it didn't approach the same excitement I felt when I read Delirium. For me, I felt like Lena w...more

I Couldn't Love You More

The message that shines through the sometimes murky text is that family wins in the end. I still want to smack a few characters - including Eliot w...more

A Holiday of Love (Westmoreland, #3.5)
I only read the McNaught short story from this book. It was a bit of a let-down, but I do like getting (albeit predictable) closure on the characters.
