Maybe one day I’ll learn to not read books that will cause me this much emotional pain.
Five hundred years ago, war raged across the land between humans and faeries. A Treaty was signed which would ensure that humans and faeries would forever be separated by a wall lest they ever try to battle each other again. Feyre, a young human girl who hunts game for her family’s survival, kills a faerie in the form of a wolf and is later met by another beast. He offers her a choice: either he will kill her for taking the life of his friend or come with him and spend the rest of her life in Prythian, the faerie realm. When she arrives at the Spring Court she enters a world where she is hunted by faeries and protected by the High Lord of Spring. She must face down a powerful Fae queen and conquer her own fears as well. Continue reading “Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses.”

Another book that only took me a day to finish. I hope non of my teachers actually said anything important because I was not paying attention in any classes, I was just reading this incredible book.
Grace has always watched her wolf lurking in the shadows of the woods behind her house ever since she was attacked by the pack when she was a little girl. She looks forward to winter because that is the time she knows her wolf will always be there, watching, waiting until he appears at her doorstep in human form. Grace must keep the secret of the wolves safe and make sure the new and volatile wolves do the same. Continue reading “Review: Shiver. (Wolves of Mercy Falls #1)”
I finished this book in one day. I think it’s pretty safe to say that I enjoyed it a lot, because I have done pretty much nothing but read this book for 24 hours.

I had never read anything by Julie Kagawa before reading these books. They had very mixed reviews so I was pretty apprehensive about buying them but I decided that it was worth the risk and wasn’t disappointed. Continue reading “Review: Talon & Rogue”
Okay, this one has been a long time coming. I said that I would read this a long time ago. So, naturally it took me four years to do so. But, boy, am I glad I did? This is one of those series’ where you just kinda go “WOW”. It’s seriously awesome and there’s action and drama and romance and evil people who try to take over the world. It’s the complete package.
I was lucky enough to go to a writing festival last year that Cassandra Clare was attending and doing a presentation with Holly Black. This would have been great had I actually read any of either of their books at this point, however, after meeting her I decided that it was definitely time to read The Mortal Instruments. I was not disappointed. Continue reading “Review: The Mortal Instruments.”
Okay, okay, this one is gonna be emotional. It’s a fresh wound. I swear, this woman is tearing my life apart with her books. Cassandra Clare has done it again, this time with the Infernal Devices.
