Review: The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand

Review: The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand

Tissues! The Last Time We Say Goodbye is one of those books… and I just can’t stop crying right now. My The Last Time We Say Goodbye review: This is a pretty tough read, dealing with a difficult and heartbreaking subject. And it definitely should come with a trigger warning! At the very beginning of The Last Time We Say Goodbye, we learn that Lex’s brother Ty committed suicide, and Lex is seeing a therapist who first suggests that she be medicated, then when she vetoes that, he tells her […]

Review: Rapture – J.R. Ward

Review: Rapture – J.R. Ward

Rapture showed a different side of Jim Heron, and it had some interesting developments when it came to the sides of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, as well as a character I didn’t think we’d ever see again. My Rapture review: There are a lot of things happening in Rapture that I can’t really mention in my review for fear of spoiling things! There is a mystery soul Jim and Adrian need to try and save, and this is the main plot and story-line. There are two interesting sub-plots as well, on […]

Review: Obsidian – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Obsidian – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian was a little confusing in places, and I was quite frustrated with Katy because of her suffering from something very close to insta-love/lust when it came to Daemon. She said he was a jerk, but then she went all googly-eyed at the thought of him anyway. My Obsidian review: There are many tropes in young adult novels – and sadly most of those I don’t really enjoy – that were present in Obsidian. More or less absent parents, as Katy’s father had died, and her mother worked a lot, […]

Review: Tempt the Stars – Karen Chance

Review: Tempt the Stars – Karen Chance

Tempt the Stars blew me away! I don’t think I can wait another second to pick up the next book in the Cassie Palmer series, because holy cliffhanger, Batman!! My Tempt the Stars review: Cassie definitely had her work cut out for her in this fast-paced adventure! Tempt the Stars was filled with intrigue and action, and for many things, Cassie was still kept in the dark about her powers, the fact that there were more people out there both looking out for her, and doing what they could to […]
