*This review is spoiler-free for the entire series. Spoilers are hidden in spoiler tags* It is Paula Weston’s fault that I haven’t done anything productive lately. Yup that’s right, I’m putting ALL the blame on her. I’ve been stuck inside this world that Weston’s created and just can’t seem to get out. SEND HELP.  So. If you haven’t heard of/read The Rephaim series, I highly recommend you reconsider all your life choices and ask yourself: what am I doing with my life? I clearly […]

Fangirl Discussion Review by Mel and Celine *This is a spoiler-free review* Celine: Can I just say how much I loved this one?! Mel: Yes omg I cannot get over how brilliant this one is.

That pretty much sums up all of […]

It’s no big secret that I’m totally enamored with  the historical fiction sub-genre within YA. I have read nearly all of the historical fiction out there within the YA demographic and have seen equal parts good and bad. With this in mind, consider the weighting of what I say next: Under a Painted Sky brings a diversity to the genre I haven’t seen before. As much as I adore the genre, I’ve read my share of rich white debutantes/duchesses/whatever but there really is a noticeable […]

This review has ALL The Blood of Olympus spoilers hidden under spoiler tags. For people who have not read The House of Hades, please only read the first and last paragraphs. EDIT 11/10/14 – My thoughts on the rushed ending, lack of all main characters and the ending in general: I cried last night after finishing The Blood of Olympus. I had ran from school straight to the closest bookstore and snagged the book. I might have squealed and flailed a bit, and maybe […]

Discussion review by Melanie and Celine *this review is spoiler-free* Celine: Okay, so… Heir of Fire. I think this is going to be an interesting discussion because it’s pretty much the first time we’ve had differing opinions on a book! 😛 Melanie: Right? I did enjoy it overall, but when I look back and think about it, I didn’t love it that much. One of the main reasons being because it felt really boring for me. This book felt so much slower and the plot […]

I’ve just finished this book and I feel as if I’m floating high on cloud nine. I’ll try my best to make this review coherent and not just endless gushing, but it’s quite difficult when Perkins writes these stories that just have such  an emotional impact on my mood. I went from having a semi bad day to feeling completely ecstatic while reading this novel. I think it really says something when an author can create such palpable and real emotions from words. It’s […]

Discussion by Melanie and Celine *This review is spoiler-free* Melanie: Abigail Haas doesn’t fail us yet again. This is a piece of perfection. YES YES YES. *flails* It was everything I expected plus more. Celine: I have to admit, my expectations were sky high after the masterpiece that was Dangerous Girls. I was a bit worried, because high expectations usually lead to disappointment. But of course I shouldn’t have worried. This is Abigail Haas, after all. Dangerous Boys blew me away. Melanie: Yeah, I had […]

Wow. That was my first thought when I finished Falling Into Place and I have a feeling it’s a thought that will remain for a while. It’s been a while since I’ve read such an incredibly powerful, sad, amazing novel. It manages to give you both a sense of complete hopelessness and hope. It’s a story that will gove you goosebumps because of the way it’s told. Most of all, it’s incredible. Falling Into Place is what I call a “silent” novel. Not because it […]
