The Silence of Bones by June Hur is a murder mystery set in the Joseon dynasty of Korea. I have never read anything with this setting, and it was exciting to see this fresh take on a thriller and learn some history at the same time. Seol is a clever character, and the book’s setting is well described. Although I didn’t love certain aspects like the pacing, this one is still a pretty strong work. Continue reading
Supernova by Marissa Meyer is the conclusion to the Renegades series, and I must admit I had very high hopes for it. This story of good and evil is fast-paced, and the characters are all so complex. That being said, I was disappointed by the ending, which is underwhelming compared to the rest of the series. Continue reading

Review: Archenemies by Mairssa Meyer
Archenemies by Marissa Meyer is an amazing sequel to Renegades by Marissa Meyer, This instalment is just as incredible as its predecessor, and it is equally complex. The characters are all so original, and the setting is developed. I can’t get enough of this series, and I am desperate for the next book! Continue reading

WEATHER ALERT: SEVERE STORMS AHEAD
Gemma and Hallie's world has come to a screeching halt. Their parents are engaged, which makes them step-sisters. Nothing in the world could possibly be worse for Gemma and Hallie--they won't let it happen. Even if it means putting their own feud aside to separate their parents.
Events quickly escalate as a hurricane rips through the Hamptons leaving everyone (including Gemma's two exes, her current crush, best friend, and her nemesis) bottled up in one house. One big, miserable group of exes and enemies together allow secrets to unfold and plans to be plotted. The calm before this storm definitely doesn't exist.
Katie Finn pulls out all the stops for this fast-paced, dramatic conclusion in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series, Hearts, Fingers, and Other Things to Cross.
Hearts, Fingers, And Other Things to Cross, Katie Finn
Hearts, Fingers, and Other Things to Cross by Katie Finn just doesn’t compare to the rest of the books in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series. The concept is not as fun and upbeat as the first books, since it is all about two girls trying to get their parents to divorce because they don’t want to be sisters. I also didn’t enjoy the main character’s immature actions and the unrealistic plot. I had such high hopes for this conclusion, but unfortunately, I was let down. Continue reading
