Ahhhh guys guys guys. I found a romance that didn’t make me want to puke. #notaromantic Lady Darby was accused of murder and acquitted.  Since the trial, she has fled to her sister’s country estate and has managed to avoid the worst of social gossip.  When her sister throws a dinner party and someone is brutally murdered, Lady Darby is the first to be blamed by the guests.  The only way to prove her innocence and protect her sister’s family is to find the real killer. Okay, so there’s a few things to know right off the bat: This is […]

DNF @ 47%. Talon is the story of a girl who is also a dragon, but works for an organization that isn’t as pretty as she hoped it would be.  Like in Bloodlines, she believes she is doing the right thing until faced with an authority figure and a situation she doesn’t respect and she starts digging a little on her own.  Like so many other books, this is about an attractive sixteen-year-old who just moved to the California area and is in awe of the beach and a boy. The instalove kills me.  It’s not bad from Ember’s POV, but […]

  Everybody seems to really enjoy this book, but it sort of made me angry. I have such limited tolerance for Spoiled Rich Brat Is Sad stories.  Lockhart tries to humanize Cady sometimes – she has chronic migraines and is sad and gives her stuff away.  But she’s so fake and selfish; other characters call her out on her selfishness sometimes, which is a bit satisfying, but it’s not enough for me to like her.  The tragedy in her life is genuinely horrible, but she is so disconnected from it… I couldn’t be bothered to care, either. Reading this novel, I […]

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Looking for Alaska by John Green

  John Green fans traditionally mark Looking for Alaska as their favorite of his books. I’m sorry, folks, I just can’t concur.  Quite the contrary, Looking For Alaska is my least favorite of his books.  Up until Day Zero, I can’t stand the book.  Miles is such a prat, so selfish and unlikable.  The only thing that gets me through the first 60% of this novel are the famous last words, which I do find fascinating.  While reading any of his novels, you are confronted and fascinated by John Green’s quirky intelligence, and I love that in his books, but it’s not enough […]

Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

  Every time I read this book, I get a little something different from it. My first read was a sheer feat of determination:  I was eleven, and it was a huge book.  And an adult book.  I felt like a rock star. The second time, I fell in love with the story.  The richness of the world Margaret Mitchell presents is astounding. The third time, I fell in love with Scarlett.  Scarlett is the immense character of spirit and soul, with an unbreakable determination and strength.  I envied her strong shoulders for bearing the burdens she did, and her ability to […]
