What is up with the names in these books?

The heroes all have T names (Travis, Trent, Thomas, Taylor, etc). Ok, I can deal with that.

Then the heroines all have alliterative names (ABby ABernathy, LIis LIndy, CAMi CAMlin, FAlyn FAirchild, etc).

I like most of Katie McGarry's other books. A lot. So I was surprised and disappointed by this one.

SPOILERS after this point!!

It starts off alright... I was interested in Emily's father's side of the family and finding out what happened between Emil

The bones of this book are good, but it's so short that it really doesn't have time to delve in to the details. I think this author tried to tackle way too much in a novella and didn't really succeed.

Most of the story is about Kerrin, but interspers

This book was fantastic. I'm a big fan of the BBC series, and I could totally picture a young Sherlock and Irene! The author also perfectly captures the Sherlock that Benedict Cumberbatch so beautifully portrays in the series.

I'm very disappointed th

Boring, juvenile, ridiculous.

The plot drags, the writing is awful, and when things do happen they're so ridiculous that I couldn't stop rolling my eyes.

Dorothy Must Die wasn't this bad. I didn't think it was amazing, but I liked it well enough. The W

I didn't really like this book at all. Evelyn is a really terrible person and I had trouble connecting with her at all. She spends most of the book shrugging and complaining about how horrible her life is. Her father is nicknamed "The Stranger" and E ...more

I'm addicted to this series, but I think it's going to break my heart in the end.

Jackson is a horrible person and I have a feeling Kresley Cole is setting up an Evie/Jack finale which is very disappointing to me. I don't like male romantic leads who

“That was enterprising," Will sounded nearly impressed.
Nate smiled. Tess shot him a furious look. "Don't look pleased with yourself. When Will says 'enterprising' he means 'morally deficient.'"
"No, I mean enterprising," said Will. "When I mean morally deficient, I say, 'Now, that's something I would have done'.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

“You love me. Real or not real?"
I tell him, "Real.”

“Goodness," Tessa said to the back of his head. "If you keep seeing Six-Fingered Nigel like this, he'll expect you to declare your intentions.”
