Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

"To many, I was myth incarnate, the embodiment of a most superb legend, a fairy tale. Some considered me a monster, a mutation. To my great misfortune, I was once mistaken for an angel." This is one of those books that I think most people either hate or love. For me, I can´t decide which… Continue reading Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

Review: Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant

Imagine having visions every time you touch someone. Imagine seeing a fractal, a mathematical pattern that somehow reveals a person's deepest and darkest secrets as soon as you pick up their jacket. Then imagine finding the one person ever who doesn´t cause that reaction. "I envy how touch is, for most people, as easy as… Continue reading Review: Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant

Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

This was one of my more anticipated releases this year, but sadly, I can´t say it met my expectations. Now, I am aware that my expectations and hope was to glide back into the excitement I had when reading Divergent, which isn´t exactly low, but I still feel this didn´t really make it up to… Continue reading Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Review: Freeks by Amanda Hocking

"In a world of magical visions and pyrokinesis, Mara just wants to have a normal life. But is that possible?" Well, I´d have to give that a firm no. This was my first read from Amanda Hocking but I did see a fair amount of people shelving it on Goodreads as soon as the full… Continue reading Review: Freeks by Amanda Hocking
