[I’m back!] Drowned by Cyn Balog

There are infinite excuses to explain my hiatus for the past year and a half but they are boring and mostly are because I’m lazy, so I’ll spare you. I’m sorry for the long break, but I’m back now!! Hooray! I am just going to start reviewing books that I’ve read recently, because I have …

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Sorry about the lack of posts recently, everyone! I am the world’s biggest procrastinator, so I put off all my summer English reading until the last couple of weeks 🙂 So I’ve been working on reading three books in two weeks, which wouldn’t be a big deal if they were good books, but they are …

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Taking a break from last year’s PAYA reviews to bring you this dystopian novel! Somewhere in my Internet travels, I read a bunch of reviews that said this book wasn’t very good, it didn’t have a good plot, the characters were flat, blah blah, etc. I however, found it through one of my spastic Barnes …

Partials by Dan Wells

I stockpile books like other people stockpile food and weapons for the apocalypse, so this was book number 2 of 8 that was purchased for vacation reading. I really owe my mom some money for like four of those…but anyway. …

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

As I mentioned on my Divergent review, I preordered Insurgent as soon as I possibly could, and then had to wait for months until May 1, when it was released. But then, it wasn’t downloading onto my Nook, so I almost went to Barnes and Noble to buy a hard copy because I couldn’t wait any longer. Finally, …

Divergent by Veronica Roth

So I read this a while ago because it was only $5.99 on BarnesandNoble.com and the summary sounded interesting, so I bought it. BEST. DECISION. EVER. This book is seriously phenomenal. I even pre-ordered the second book in the series, Insurgent, and was freaking out when it didn’t immediately download onto my Nook on May 1st …
