Gone Girl
I will never, EVER get married.

Really well done, but my fav is still Sharp Object. Maybe this one will be liked by Minivans more than single gals? Eit

The Uninvited
Loved the characters and the mystery - not much of a climax, but the writing is excellent, nonetheless.

The Bride's Farewell
I liked it, never as much as How I live now or What I was, but still a very strong book for young adults. Yay for girl power!

The Witch's Boy
I'm just no fan of stories that tell you about what's happening more than make you live it, sorries:(

The Petting Zoo
3 chapters...ouch. I just didn't connect with the plot, the characters, the mood, or the voice.

Dark Eyes (Dark Eyes, #1)
How do you say 'ridiculously impossible' in Russian?

When the Sea Is Rising Red (Hobverse #1)
Much an Anna Karenina kind of book, but what a voice!!!

The writing on its own makes this book worth the read:)

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
For anyone curious about what happens after you die - not as morbid as one'd think, I quite enjoyed it:)

The Thief of Broken Toys
Astounding writing, lacked a little structure, but totally worth the read.

Oh, and sad, so sad...

The Ghost in Love

Ugh, I so wanted to love this, but too much virtue and God talk got in the way. Sorry, this is a huge miss for me.

The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, #2)
The first of the series blew me away, but this one felt a little forced, and the lack of direction kinda gave me a headache. I just hope the third is ...more

Newes from the Dead
I read the first chapter and couldn't go on... so deceiving from its premise, this book is NOT what it pretends to be.

The Plague
Well. I'm in shock. I preferred this one to the first - how often does that happen??

Amazing writing, sweet and low-key plot, quite diverting for a 3 hour book.

World After (Penryn & the End of Days, #2)
One very clever use of flashbacks to keep the fire burning.

That book...

Poe's Children: The New Horror
Some were excellent, some were really bad - I guess that's the point of an anthology, right, to play on people's taste?

The Mockingbirds (The Mockingbirds, #1)
Too many details and not enough action - but the subject is worth the read, though.

Fahrenheit 451
Loved the first part, then not so much.

Great dystopian concept, though.

Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2)
PERFECT ending to a great story - just the right amount of horror and funnies, which makes me ache for Blake's next book!
