The Sun Is Also a Star

The Sun Is Also a Star
Posted 10 February 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Sun is Also a Star is the second novel by Nicola Yoon and I loved it every bit as much as the first.  There was just something about this book that got to me.  And, in retrospect, this is surprising, because a big part of it centers around something I usually hate. […]

My Review Everything, Everything is the debut novel from author Nicola Yoon.  It is the story of a girl named Madeline who hasn’t left her house in over seventeen years.  She has SCID, an autoimmune disease that is very rare and leaves her allergic to just about anything and everything.  Her entire world is her […]

My Review The Kill Order is the first prequel to The Maze Runner series, soon to be followed by The Fever Code.  This book takes place 13 years prior to the events of The Maze Runner and, although I have read many reviews that expressed disappointment because of the lack of connection between this book and the trilogy, but […]

My Review The Death Cure… the end to a series that I really enjoyed.  And I did enjoy this book, although I am still not sure how I feel about the conclusion!! I have mixed feelings, but I have to wonder if perhaps that is exactly how the author meant us to feel.  These books […]

My Review The Maze Runner had me hooked from the beginning and The Scorch Trials kept that going.  This one was non-stop action and even more of the mysteries of the world they live in are revealed. The Gladers have been told that their trials are over now, but in reality, they are just beginning.  There is no […]

My Review This is one of the few books that I read AFTER seeing the movie, the movie making me want to read it when I previously had no interest.  And I loved it and the premise of the story. The story opens with Thomas, locked in a metal box-like lift that is moving through […]

Passion

My Review The third book in the Fallen series, Passion was very different than the first two books.  Unlike those, this book didn’t tell a single story.  Instead, it followed Luce throughout many of the stories of her lifetimes, travelling ever farther back in order to learn the truth about herself, about Daniel, and about […]

My Review Shadowed Summer takes place in the perfect southern, gothic setting of Louisiana in the summer, in a small town where nothing ever happens.  Iris and Collette are best friends, caught in the awkward stage between growing up and playing childhood games.  Their relationship, especially with the addition of a boy to the mix, is […]

Torment

Torment

My Review Torment is the second in the new Fallen series by Lauren Kate, and, so far, my favorite.  My biggest criticism of the previous novel was that at times the plot became somewhat tangled and confusing.  I absolutely didn’t have that problem with this novel.  There are definately some places where it is difficult to clearly draw the line between […]

Fallen

Fallen
Posted 11 January 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The first in the young adult paranormal Fallen series, Fallen is a contemporary retelling of the age-old, epic battle between good and evil.  The premise of the plot was creative and unique, set around a reform school with the unlikeliest of heroes and villians.  Sorting out the evil from the good was rarely possible […]
