Kitchen Princess, Vol. 07 (Kitchen Princess, #7)
**spoiler alert** My rating went up because Sora died--and didn't come back to life! I think that's commendable that the author was willing to kill of...more

Tempest Rising (Tempest, #1)
I have to admit, when I first picked up this book, I totally expected it to be your typical YA mermaid fantasy/romance novel. But this book really sur...more

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
Okay, I'll admit it, this was really good. It took forever to finally get past the fact that it's a fad (I've always been very hesitant to read books...more

**spoiler alert** I have to say, I love Ren and Kyoko in their roles as Cain and Setsu Heel. The dynamics of their relationship are skyrocketing! I th...more

Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast
I really liked this book. Fairy-tale retellings are always fun, and this one managed to stick pretty close to the original fairy tale. Not to mention...more

Mistwood (Mistwood, #1)
Totally forgot that I've read this before, but luckily I had forgotten most of the plot, so it was still fun to read. Very well done. I love the autho...more

Reckless (Mirrorworld, #1)

Sand Chronicles, Vol. 1 (Sand Chronicles, #1)
I'm still not sure why I read this series. It was okay, but I'll admit, it had me in tears. Not sure I'll finish the series, but, yeah.

Castle in the Air (Howl's Moving Castle, #2)

The Mark
Kind of slow. The end felt rushed, like the author was trying to cram it all in at the end. The climax felt more like a catalyst. Mediocre.

The Swan Maiden
A sweet story. The ending felt a little contrived, but still had that sweet taste to it. Felt very much like a legend or fairy tale, but still modern...more

Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel (Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel, #1)
Meh. It just felt like more angsty teenage vampire drama. It wasn't as bad as Twilight, but it wasn't great either. Nothing more to say.

Fury (The Fury Trilogy, #1)
Didn't finish it. I got tired of the plot being put on hold for all of the sex and nudity. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

Flecks of Gold
It was okay. The beginning was a bit clumsy, but picked up later on. Not the best, but still good. Pretty unique, but still a little predictable.
