There. I did it again. I fell for a book with a pretty cover, and now I want back the 6 precious hours of my life I wasted reading a book with loosely tied plot, an irritating and selfish protagonist, and unrealistic bland characters I couldn’t care less about.

This is gonna be a very, very short review because of the following reasons:

  1. I officially hate Adam
  2. Adam is such an asshat!
  3. I really, really thought about shipping Adiette at the beginning of the series but Adam’s  attitude towards Juliette changed my mind.
  4. Adam is such a pessimist
  5. Adam is…okay you know what? I think I need a new reason: Fracture Me is too short a book for me to write my usual 1k+ words review.

OMG WARNER!!!

Review: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #1.5)

Oookay now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the actual review, shall we?

When I read Shatter Me, I knew that Tahereh Mafi was a brilliant writer, but I never knew exactly how talented she actually is until I read Destroy Me—a novella from the perspective of Warner, a ruthless powerful young man of questionable sanity. And while this book did meet all of my expectations, there were still many things that Continue reading “Review: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #1.5)”

Review: The One (The Selection#3) by Kiera Cass

Ratings: ★★★★☆

18635016This book started off terribly but got progressively better in the middle, and then went spiraling downhill again in the end. In fact, up until reading the very last chapters, I was ready to give this book four stars–it was even better than The Elite–and I hadn’t been expecting that–but then Kiera Cass had to ruin it with a loosely tied plot.

The Writing: The writing was just as good as the other two books, except that in The One, it was a lot less predictable and a lot more entertaining than in The Elite and in The Selection. Once again, Kiera Cass had me Continue reading “Review: The One (The Selection#3) by Kiera Cass”

Review: The Selection (The Selection#1) by Kiera Cass

Oookay…where do I start?

I have a love/hate relationship with this book and at the moment I’m leaning towards hate, because even though this book was very well written and works great as a romance novel, in the beginning it promises to be something more than a mere love story, despite what the blurb and the trailer (check it out here) says. And yet, by the time I was done, I realized it had failed to deliver.

Parallel universes? That is so Fringe.

Review: Tandem (Many-Worlds Trilogy#1) By Anna JarzabI am a huge fan of science fiction–fringe science–in particular, which covers everything from teleportation to reanimation to mind reading to…yep, you guessed it…parallel universes.  It’s a concept I am very familiar with, and I also know the main theory behind it so of course, when I heard of Anna Jarzab’s Tandem, I instantly wanted to read it.
