The above two lines of dots is an example of my mind after reading The Fault in Our Stars after roughly 5 hours last night. Honestly, I'm trying to come up with the right words that adequately describe my feelings towards this book, but it is quite freaking hard. Because those 5 hours have affected me so deeply that my well of words has nearly dried up. I will say that I feel this book is John's masterpiece. Well and truly, his magnus opus. If I thought he was a good author before, wow. This book is so beautiful, funny, painful, anger-inducing, etc. Like others have said, TFiOS makes you really feel the full spectrum of emotion, from laughing to crying, and everything in between. The story, while about kids with cancer, and death/dying/cancer are major themes, TFiOS is about so much more than that. It's about love, friendship, being let down by your heroes, finding yourself, familial bonds, and more. I loved this story, the surprises that I never saw coming, and at certain points I wanted to chuck my Nook at the wall because I was so angry (thankfully that didn't happen xD) I almost broke down in tears at some points, and I almost never cry, ever. So if a work is making me nearly break down in tears, I know that it is working my emotions in the best sense possible. And the ending was just gorgeous. That's all I'll say about it, gorgeous.
Hazel was an excellent narrator. For John's first foray into the female perspective, he did an excellent job with Hazel. Yes, she (and Augustus) were intelligent and spoke well beyond her years, but I believe that it's because she was forced to grow up fast due to her disease, and her experiences have shaped her personality/everything. She felt real, and once again, if she existed and were around my age, I feel like we'd be best friends. Her journey touched my heart, and I love the growth she went through. Now onto Augustus. Oh my god, I think I'm in love with Mr. Augustus Waters. The way he speaks, his sweetness, his intelligence, everything. His own journey nearly broke me, and I adore his character. Others like Isaac and Hazels parents popped through the page, all three dimensional and fully realized. One of the characters made me so angry, as I said earlier I almost chucked my Nook against my wall. But I'm glad that person was there, to highlight one of the book's themes.
Damn, John Green truly is a genius. If I thought so before, he really is now. As I said earlier, this was his first time writing from the perspective of a girl, and he did it well. He wrote these issues well, not tramping over anything. It helps that he worked in a children's hospital at one point, so he has knowledge of kids with cancer. Again, I truly think this is his magnus opus, his best novel ever. His writing style in this book was wonderful, and I can't wait to read his next book. ...more
God I love this book. It has officially become a comfort book. I just recently listened to it while on vacation, and it felt good to hear these wordsGod I love this book. It has officially become a comfort book. I just recently listened to it while on vacation, and it felt good to hear these words again. This story is beautiful. It has fantastic characters, a well developed world, villains you love to hate, and amazing character growth. It doesn't hurt that the romance is awesome. A best friends romance, gotta love it. While I don't get all of the 80's trivia references, you don't necessarily need to. I will always love this book, always.
I also love that Wil Wheaton narrates the book. He's perfect as Wade. I could listen to him read the phonebook. What makes it funny, is the metaness where Wil reads the part where he is name checked. That will always crack me up, always. If you get a chance, read this book. It is a love letter to nerds, geeks, fandom, and the 80's. Can't wait for Armada!...more

This book is amazing! It is so addictive. I just kept wanting to turn page after page, just like The Lincoln Lawyer. The characters are well developed and fantastic, especially Frankie. :) I loved the plot and the themes it holds. "Violet Haberdasher" is a brilliant writer who knows how to captivate an audience.

Holy crap, I utterly was blown away with this book! It has quickly become one of my all time favorites. I mean that. It has easily made my top 10, easily. Easily.
The story is brilliant. It's original, it's engaging, it grabs onto you and your emotions and never lets go. Basically it's everything a great story should be. I was hooked instantly. It flowed so well, and the concept of Revnants are so unique and original to YA. Which is a nice change from the usual faeries, vampires, werewolves, angels, etc. I wanted to get lost in the story of these people who have to keep dying over and over again. Ok, the romance was a bit rushed, but it wasn't rushed over a week, and neither was the story.
Kate rocked. I loved her character. She feels like she could be one of my best friends in real life. Plus, as a book reviewer I follow pointed out, she actually reads. There seems to be a trope that this reviewer pointed out in her review of this book. Heroines in YA these days seem to be massive bookworms. The authors of YA let the readers know that their main character loves to read, and always, at one point mentions a stack of books somewhere, connected to the character. I never noticed this until she pointed it out, but it's true. Think about it. Started with Twilight, and has been kept alive ever since. But as my fellow reviewer will agree, it's nice to see this main character actually reading, and keep up her massive reading habit. Vincent was amazing. So hot and sexy, I want a Vincent! Sorry Kate, but he's mine. All the side characters were great too. Well developed, and not shoved onto the sidelines.
I adore Ms. Plum's writing style. Worship it even. Her descriptions were so beautiful, I cried at times, especially when she described Paris. I don't think this book could have taken place anywhere else. Her twists rocked, and she knows how to build her world and her characters.
Ok, I'll go this far: You'd be insane not to pick this book up. It is in my opinion one of the best books of this year. ...more
Oh. My. God. I'm about to yell how much I love this book. THIS BOOK IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe how good this book was. It just grOh. My. God. I'm about to yell how much I love this book. THIS BOOK IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe how good this book was. It just grabs you and doesn't let go until you're finished, and even then it still has a hold. I loved Tris, and how she went from a very "small" person who hadn't the slightest clue about anything, and then transformed into a well developed person who doesn't just lie back and take anything dished to her. She can see what is right and wrong, and all of the shades of gray in between. Well, to steal from Dane Cook and a book reviewer, she turned into a BAMF. Also Four was a great character, and I love how his and Tris' love progressed. I couldn't believe who he was by the end, but it sort of makes sense. I can NOT wait until the next book comes out. READ THIS NOW!! :)...more
I really enjoyed this sequel to Matched! Although admittedly, I had a couple of issues: One was minor and at the beginning. While reading the first two chapters, I couldn't distinguish which one was Cassia and which one was Ky. Their voices felt the same. But that was only the first two chapters and it was smooth sailing from there. The other is more major, and that's the world building. While Condie did build on her dystopian world even further, it did not feel like enough. I'm not the author and don't know this world as well as she does or what she has planned, but I would have liked a bit more backstory on the Society than there was.
Cassia developed even more so in this book. She became even stronger and more determined. Ky was even sexier in this book, although it felt like he was the typical brooding love interest at some points.
A solid sequel from Condie, and can't wait for the third/final book!...more
O.O O.O This book was so extremely good :). Since I couldn't finish the last couple of books because they were so horrible, I was pinning all of my hopes that this book would be amazing. And it was!!
Ok, I'll admit the romance aspect was kind of like Twilight. But honestly, I loved how the entire story, romance included, was. It was beautiful and scary and full of win. It was slow to start, but once it got going, boy did it get going. I was utterly entranced.
Victoria rocked my socks. She was strong and powerful and kick-butt. Ok, she had her Bella moments when it came to Christian, but she overcame them and is possibly one of my favorite heroines. Christian wasn't one of the better love interests I've read, but he was pretty damn close. *Swoon*...more
This book, holy shit batman. This book just blew the water into the air and up into the heavens. I mean holy effing effness. This book was AMAZING. Even better than Divergent, in every way. I literally read the thing in two days, I refused to be torn away from it. This is another book where all I want to say is "so good so good soo good sooooo fucking gooooooooooddddd." But now that would not be a good review now would it? So I'll say that this book surpasses Divergent in every way. The story was fantastic. We get to see more of the world Ms. Roth created, going from Amity to Candor, etc. The characters had great development, and everything was just so much better. The story of political upheaval coupled with the romance, just everything fell into place and made for such heart pounding action and sweet romance. I loved every single moment, and that ending, I mean holy crap. I was just so damn shocked it felt like my face almost fell off or my mouth would stay on the floor from shock. And I could not be more shocked with the twists. Nothing was predictable, just the way I like it.
Tris just blew me away with her strength in this book. She got amazing character development. I still think that she and I would get along great. I just wanted to comfort her and make sure she was ok. A book reviewer I love and respect named CassJayTuck (She is fantastic, look her up!) who said something about Tris that really resonated with me: The reason people in the book think Tris is cold and cruel is the fact that they don't feel like a normal human being. That the idea of being Divergent is nothing special in real life, but it is in this world because of the way Tris' society has functioned, with each faction being about one single virtue. So while Tris is actually a normal human who feels everything, those who aren't Divergent are not, so they think she is cruel and cold. That is really true and after I finished the book I thought about that hard. Because you read the book from Tris' perspective, you know how she's really feeling, and that she is being torn apart by grief, her actions, everything. Her arc is one of the best I've ever read. Four was also even better. He had his own development which rivaled Tris'. I could not believe the twists his character took, shocking and I loved every minute. With every time he was around I fell in love with him even more. They're relationship really made me swoon. I also loved that they had fights like other couples, they had their issues and worked them out. I also adored Susan, Christina, and the other fabulous side characters that came to life on the page.
Damn, Ms. Roth just keeps getting better. She has built a world that gets richer and richer. Like I said, as you keep reading, you see more of this world. I loved how Ms. Roth created Amity and the other factions, building the tension that I could cut with a knife. Everything came together so well and the writing style was excellent. I will seriously read everything that Ms. Roth will write. She is a freaking genius :)....more
Ok, so I've FINALLY had a chance to read this book. I had some issues with my NetGalley copy, being that after I transferred it from Adobe to my Nook, it wouldn't open and apparently didn't exist *facepalm* So I decided to let my time with it run out and ended up buying the Nook copy. I'm glad I've finally read this book.
I loved this book. It captures the essence of being a teenager perfectly, also dealing with lesbianism well. Nothing is blown out of proportion, or turned into a cheap stereotype or caricature (well maybe Mary Ashley Baumgarten, but that was satire, I think). The story is engrossing, making you want to keep reading. It name drops a LOT of rappers/hip hop artists, artists in general, but being that the four main girls and their friends are connoisseurs, you don't really mind.
I liked Esme a lot. She was a great character to take you through the story. You feel her confusion, her anger, basically everything she feels, you feel. She's relatable, and you find yourself cheering her on, wanting her to be happy and succeed in all her endeavors. You also become attached to her friends Marcy and Tess, and their friendship is fabulous. I left Rowie out of that little bit because she becomes the love interest. Honestly, I felt like she was kind of a b*tch. There is nothing wrong with experimenting and finding out who you are. And I can understand why she didn't want to tell her parents. But honestly, the way she acted was uncalled for. I am trying so hard not to spoil anything, but Rowie just made me dislike her, a lot.
If you love hip hop, a well portrayed LGBT book, this is for you....more
Absolutely a 5 start book. Also top 10 material as well. Holy mojo, how have I not read this book until recently? Where has it been all my life? No maAbsolutely a 5 start book. Also top 10 material as well. Holy mojo, how have I not read this book until recently? Where has it been all my life? No matter, I have now read it and it will forever be, as of today, one of my absolute favorite books of all time. Subsequently, Michael Grant will henceforth be known as one of my favorite authors of all time (fun factoid he's married to K.A Applegate, Animorphs author. How cool is that?). Grant is an absolute genius with a pen. I mean that, he is brilliant. I can barely explain how much I love this book and everything in the pages (alright on my Nook, you know what I mean). This truly is a new Lord of the Flies (with a bit of X-Men) for our time, just like George R.R Martin is hailed as the modern Tolkien. I recommend this highly to ANYONE, and I mean that. ...more
Holy mojo, I can't believe I finished this book in almost two days! I truly devoured it, that hasn't happened in a while. I adore Tara Hudson as an author. Her prose is just gorgeous, and Amelia is a brilliant character, as all the characters in this book are.
The story rocked my socks. I love it, period. The characters were well developed, and yeah, the romance was kind of rushed, but it wasn't insta-love, which was great. Eli was downright malicious. Not quite nightmare-inducing frightening, but I was definitely scared and hated his guts. His comeuppance was a delight to watch.
Anyone who loves ghosts, YA, romance will love this. Can't wait for book 2!...more
Oh good god, do I flucking love this book. I'm not even joking. My world was just rocked by a fabulous story and a sexy as hell love interest. But the story is what took center stage.
This book is different from Anna and the French Kiss. It feels a bit darker, not as innocent as Anna. Not that that's a bad thing, just worth noting. It's different, yet it has that sweetness Anna had, regarding the romance.
Lola was fabulous, plain and simple. I loved her outrageous style and how outgoing she was. She is definitely not like Anna, and that's ok. Lola is her own person with her own issues (LOTS of them), and you become deeply engrosses. Cricket Bell, *sigh*. Oh my bleeping good, he is so so so so so soooo sexy. It's not just how he's described looks-wise, but him as a person. He's just so nice and sweet and smart and caring. Ugh, if there were a literary crush I wish were real, Cricket would be it!
Definitely official, Stephanie Perkins is one of my all time favorite authors. I will read anything she writes because she's just so fricking talented, it's not even funny. ...more
Oh. Holy. Shit (pardon the language). What the hell did I just read? I mean that in the best sense possible. .....There are no words in me to truly describe just exactly how amazing, brilliant and wonderful this book is. This silly grin refuses to leave my face, not that I want it to :).
Ok, so brief story time: I was given/sent an ARC of this by a good friend of mine. The day it came in the mail, I took it out of the envelope, and literally squealed and jumped around my bedroom for a good 2 minutes. Actually, I feel like doing that now too. But anyway. So thank you David, thank you so much :).
This is without a doubt one of the best books I've ever read. I know I've said that a couple of time and I've meant it, but I mean it with this book as well. The whole time my eyes looked like this: O.O and I was in heaven. The story is beyond addictive. You will not want to stop reading this for a second. I started this yesterday only pausing for class and meals, and finished it tonight. I love how this book just is. Yes it's dystopian, but the concept is so unique and incredible. It's fast paced, chock full of action and romance, there is nothing like Shatter Me out there. It has everything needed to keep you reading and addicted.
Juliette was wonderful. I was rooting for her so hard. I connected to her, she was not one note, very real and complex. You read her journey from how she started as broken and self-hating, to being a strong and self-accepting kick-butt heroine. Then there's Adam. Oh god, he is so freaking sexy. He's so sweet and kind, I wish I had an Adam so bad. Kenji was pretty cool as a character, although I found him a bit annoying. Warner, oh god. Frankly he scared the sh*t out of me. His coldness and just how thoroughly evil he is. I literally felt shivers creeping up and down my spine whenever he appeared. The other characters were so well developed, even in the brief times they all appeared.
I just have to say how damned gorgeous Tahereh's prose is. Lush in the best way, she knows how to craft a brilliant story. Her world building is just plain good, no plot holes or continuity errors at all. She hooks you in from page one. Plus I've talked to her briefly, and she also one of the nicest people I've spoken with. Tahereh, if you read this, I wholeheartedly thank you so much (I know I've thanked you a lot lol xD) for giving us all such a deeply amazing and wonderful story. You are probably one of the best authors out there, and I can't wait to read the next book in the trilogy.
Everyone needs to read this book, EVERYONE!!! Man oh man it's so freaking good. ...more
That is what my mind was like after I finished this book. I am not joking when I say I can barely find the right words, or words at all, to describe how I feel.
What I will say (on here at least. Shameless plug for my blog xD) is that this book, gives me hope. Like the name of our intrepid heroine Karou, this book, and Laini Taylor for that matter, give me hope. You see, YA literature is becoming a bit lukewarm, with so many books (paranormal YA in particular) that are all basically the same. The genre has become watered down and redundant in most cases. Then this book comes along, and it's a shining beacon that shows there is hope for YA paranormal literature. There are good stories out there, waiting to be told by authors who love them. This book gives hope for Paranormal YA of the future. And from what I can see the future is bright.
That and the lyrical genius plus fabulous characters and breathtaking story helped as well :)
My god this book rocked my socks. I can't explain how good it is. Faced paced, funny, just all around fun. Loved Kat, she's not one of the typical YAMy god this book rocked my socks. I can't explain how good it is. Faced paced, funny, just all around fun. Loved Kat, she's not one of the typical YA leading females. Plus the romance didn't suddenly take precedence, which was great. Recommended to anyone. ...more
Holy shit (pardon), this book was amazing. I mean that. And for me to say that the third book in, that's something. This was an excellent book, and an excellent installment in what has become one of my all time favorite series. This book starts off with a bang, picking up right where Violet Tendencies left off. The action is ramped up, the romance is as well, character development out the yin yang. Oh my god, such a good book. This time, Sabina and the crew are in New Orleans, trying to find Sabina's sister Maisie. The story takes such great turns with excellent twists. And I mean holy bleep, that ending squeezed the hell out of my heart. I couldn't put this book down, so much so I stayed up until almost 5 in the morning to finish it. But that ending, oh. My. God. If that doesn't make me want to read Silver-Tongued Devil, I don't know what will (I'm definitely reading STD ^^).
Sabina still kicks some major butt. When she's in action mode, oh boy don't get in her way. She is a beautiful action heroine, and she also gets some major character development. Her confrontation of her past, her heritage, and her possible romance with Adam all boost her up, making Sabina vulnerable yet tough, and I loved being in her head. Man she can snark it up with the best of them. Adam, whew. He wasn't really in TMIB, so having him return in full force was wonderful. He also goes through some development, having some revelations while struggling alongside Sabina about their relationship. Speaking of their relationship, oh god it's fabulous. I adore reading the banter between Sabina and Adam, also how sweet their romance could be. You just want them to be happy and to be together. Then of course, one of my all time favorite characters, Giguhl. I'm laughing just thinking about him. He is comic relief incarnate, yet he's also loyal, protective, and all around brilliant. He had this one line that had me cracking up, at 4 in the morning mind you. I had to struggle to not laugh very loudly at that time so not as to wake up my parents. I just adore Gigul so much, and I love him not as a character, but as a person. (you know, if he were real) The banter between him and Sabina had me dying of laughter, but you could see how much they care for each other as friends. New characters were introduced as well, such as Brooks. Brooks quickly rose up as one of my favorite characters. He's so sassy and funny, but also well rounded with heartbreaking backstory. And when you read what happens to him, your heart aches. Brooks also had hilarious banter with all of the characters, and I love his relationship with Giguhl (oh god, such a great duo). Others such as Zen, Mac, etc. All of them had strong connections to the Kaniverse, were vibrant and fabulous, and had great development/backstory to book.
Jaye Wells, you are a hero to me. I mean that with all my heart. The woman can write so freaking well, guys. She just keeps on building up this world, keeping it full and rich, making you want to learn more and more. She can write a character like nobody's business, and is pure brilliance. I can not WAIT to read Silver-Tongued Devil.
It's safe to say this is one of my all time favorite series and I would recommend it highly....more
I'd like to give a shout out to Wendy Darling from The Midnight Garden. If it wasn't for seeing her review on Goodreads, I don't think I would have picked this book up. Thanks Wendy for introducing me to this freaking amazing series! :)
Holy bleeping hell you guys. This book was AMAZAZING! I can't even describe how much I love this book, because it would have a lot of profanity added to "this book is so good this book is so good this book is sooooooooooooooo goooooood." You get my drift. This book, I can't even. It is so refreshing on its take on the paranormal, has some excellent steampunk, and a kick-ass romance. Plus strong and colorful characters whom attach themselves to you like gum on your show, but in a good way. I literally stayed up until 5 in the morining because I refused to sleep until I found out what happened in the end. I'm telling you, Soulless is boss, man. I was utterly addicted to this book from page one. I love the melding of steampunk and Paranormal Romance/alternative history. Alexia's journey of solving the mystery, along with Lord Maccon, was exceptional. I was trying to solve the mystery with them along the way, while rooting for them to succeed. Plus this book was just good, pure fun. I couldn't stop smiling at certain points, this novel is contagiously fun. I don't think I have read this fun of a paranormal book since I last read the Sabina Kane series.
Alexia is a BOSS y'all. She is blunt, sharp, witty and wickedly smart, plus she doesn't take anyone's crap. I felt an instant connection to our soulless heroine. I really truly think we'd be close friends in real life, because we both share the same traits. I loved being in her head, with her funny and sarcastic thoughts. I also loved reading her journey, emotional and plot driven journey. She is definitely a character to be reckoned with for sure. I felt for her when her family treated her horrendously. I wanted to shake them all and show them how wonderful Alexia was, and shame on them for thinking otherwise. Plus, she is a boss with a parasol! Lord Maccon, holy crap. He is a sexy sexy guy. I loved his white hot chemistry with Alexia. Their banter is just wonderful to read, and had me giggling and storing away some of their words to use in real life. I love how their romance started accidentally, because it came out of nowhere. Yet, when going back to the part before the romance started, you could see that their love made perfect sense. Maccon was strong willed, sharp, arrogant, and sweet. I loved watching his journey of wanting to solve the mystery with Alexia, also his journey of realizing his feelings for her. Apart from our two leads, without a doubt my second favorite character was Lord Akeldama. Holy crap, he is fabulous! I love love love love love Lord Akeldama! He is so sweet and witty and just purely awesome. I loved his conversations with Alexia, how he cared for her and wanted her to be happy, while also being snarkily wonderful. He is fabulousness incarnate, and I can't wait to see him again in the next book! I also adored Professor Lyall and Miss Hisselpenny, Alexia's best friend. Both were excellent best friends to our leads, while standing on their own as vibrant and three-dimensional characters. Especially Miss Hisselpenny, and her awesome friendship with Alexia. It felt like me and my best friend just talking and rolling our eyes at each other. Every character in this book shone on their own, even the villains. No one was cardboard, and I loved how fleshed out the side characters were, no matter who they were.
I worship the ground Ms. Carriger walks on. She has one of the best writing styles I have ever read in my life. She truly gets in the Victorian mindset, setting it all up perfectly and did not make her syle hokey or out of whack with the time period. Plus her world is just fascinating, entirely fleshed out with room for more to come out of the woodwork. She paints such a vivid picture of Alexia's world, I just wanted to get lost in it. Plus her take on typical paranormal creatures was utterly original and fascinating. I can not wait to further explore her world and her characters in Changeless....more
EDIT 12/20/12: I didn't even realize this was an audiobook until I found it on a playaway website. After hunting down the audiobook in physical form (the only other format the audiobook exists in is MP3 X_X), I devoured the audiobook in 2 days. This story is SO SO SO much better in audio form. Katherine Taub, the narrator, is perfect as Ana and various characters. Also, her voice for Li is perfect, a snide, yet whiny voice. If you can, pick this audio delight up! So worth it :)
Holy fucking shit (pardon my language), this book was amazing! Amazing I tell you, amazing! I would shout it from the rooftops if I could. No, really. I was scared sh**less as I started this book, because I had been hyper-excited for it, waiting on my heels excited. Thankfully, Incarnate fully exceeded my expectations and more. I love love love this concept, it is totally unique in YA right now. I also love how it's a blend of different genres, and they're well blended too. I loved Ana's journey into Heart, learning more about herself, and learning the implications of various actions. There were epic twists and turns, mixed with some subtle social commentary as well as going deep into the idea of reincarnation. One of the things I liked about the world was that is sort of mirrored our history, from the beginning up until now, only with some differences. Plus that ending threw me for an epic loop, and I can NOT wait for the second book. Dammit why is it not here yet. *Puts on pouty face*
Ana rocked. She was a perfect protagonist for this book. She was naive enough to learn, grow and develop throughout the novel, but shrewd and strong enough to take care of some shiz on her own, especially at the end. I love her development, and was rooting for her to succeed, and to flourish in the city of Heart. Plus she loved music, which made me like her even more :) Sam, the love interest/guide of the world was wonderful. He was smart, sweet, caring and loyal. Plus he was sexy as hell and would have done anything for Ana. Yup, can you guess that he's been added to my fictional character crush list? I also adored Stef. Stef was funny and made of awesome. She was a perfect best friend for Sam, as well as Ana. Li, Ana's mother, made me want to punch a wall. Damn, she was a horrifying human being. I was literally disgusted every time she appeared. I mean you could see how badly she terrorized Ana every time Ana mentioned her. Ugh, she was horrible. The other characters were wonderful, each having personality and vibrancy.
Damn Jodi Meadows, are you made of talent? No seriously, are you? I adore your writing style! It was excellent. I also love how you built your world, and how unique it was. I haven't read a book so wholly unique in a while. You wrote such an amazing book, and I have nothing book good things to say about you and this book/series. I can not wait for book 2 to come out!!!!...more
