Insurgent (Divergent #2) – Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent #2) – Veronica Roth

Insurgent is a great continuation of Divergent. The characters continue to make sense, and we learn more about the society and why it became the way it is. I loved this book, the way Four and Tris had to deal with the aftermath of the huge simulation war, and wondering what was going to happen next was exciting and kept me firmly attached to my kindle for the whole narrative. Their little stay at Amity was strange to say the least, and Tris had to find out the hard way how things were always seemingly so peaceful there. Again, I love how Tris and Four continue to go to each other to feel reassured, even if they are also both […]

Review: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker #2) – Jenna Black

Review: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker #2) – Jenna Black

Oh Dana, how naive you were in your bargain!  I was sure the way it was worded meant exactly what it meant, but I had no idea just how bad things would be, even if she decides later herself to actually go through with it. Shadowspell did show Dana’s growth, though. This had a lot more action, and apart from being to naive in one instance, Dana was great!  She already grew a lot in the first book, and in this, that growth continued.  I love that she has a girlfriend, although Kimber was less present than in Glimmerglass.

Shine (Shade #3) – Jeri Smith-Ready

Shine (Shade #3) – Jeri Smith-Ready

Shine is the perfect finale to the Shade series! Oh my sweet goodness!  The first chapter almost killed me!  I was sitting on the edge of my couch, my eyes as big as saucers, my reaction the same as Aura’s : ‘No! No, that just can’t be true! Not Zach! No!!!!’ *sob* I almost did a Joey and put my book in the freezer, but that just wouldn’t do! For two reasons – one- I had to know what was going to happen, even if I was devastated – two – I have a kindle, and I don’t think it would have taken it kindly if I had left it in the freezer. It didn’t take me long at all […]

Glimmerglass (Faeriwalker #1) – Jenna Black

Glimmerglass (Faeriwalker #1) – Jenna Black

Glimmerglass is a really good introduction to a series. I really like Dana, she is young, but she is still strong and can take care of herself. I enjoyed both Kimber and Ethan as well, and I am quite sure Keane will turn out to be a good ally to have later too. Of course it is easy to see that Dana is 16 years old, although she can be quite mature in some situations, she very much acts her age in other. She is used to having to deal with a lot of things herself, and meeting Kimber who hasn’t had a lot of friends either is great for both of them. I look forward to reading more about […]
