Posted July 24, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

I wasn’t too impressed with “Feuds,” the first novel in “The Feuds” series. I have to say that “Torn” has redeemed the series for me. Davis and Cole are in love. Davis believes that Cole is dead. In reality Cole is not dead, he is in hiding. All Cole really wants to do is save Davis from TOR-N. Davis is stuck on a corrupt island where people are continually dying each day. If Davis can find a way to escape TOR-N and find a cure, she may be able to save the people that she loves. Torn” by Avery Hastings […]

“Reached” by Ally Condie was a great conclusion to the series. I think the “Matched” trilogy was beautifully written. It is very poetic as each story goes on. As a reader you find yourself holding on to Condie’s every word to know what is going to happen next to Cassia, Ky, and Xander. Cassia, Ky, and Xander have grown up since the first and second novel. There is a love triangle but at the same time their isn’t. Cassia, Ky, and Xander are all friends that love each other. They would do anything for each other. Condie does a great job with her characters and […]

Book Review: Rebellion by Stephanie Diaz
Posted February 10, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

“Rebellion” by Stephanie Diaz was way better than the first book “Extraction.” Diaz may have won me over with this one. An uprising has started and Clementine and her boyfriend Logan have escaped to the rebel’s base. Right now they are living in hiding to not get caught while they plan their next strike. Clementine is struggling with guilt for leaving and also problems with post traumatic stress. Clementine’s anxiety causes her to second guess her decisions as she is trying to help end this war. She has definitely grown up since the first book. I feel like Clementine’s character is […]

“Atlantia” by Ally Condie was a very pleasant surprise. I knew this story wasn’t going to be about mermaids which is what the big discussion was when the cover reveal took place. I also wasn’t expecting the story that I got. This was in a good way.  I loved “Atlantia.” I thought it was a great book. Condie writes so beautifully. Rio and Bay live in the below called “Atlantia.” When they were 15 years old, their mother dies and they have to control of their own lives. Once a year the children below can choose to either stay below or […]


Book Review: Day 21 by Kass Morgan

Book Review: Day 21 by Kass Morgan
Posted December 5, 2014 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

“Day 21” by Kass Morgan wasn’t any disappointment but it wasn’t fantastic either. The story is still told by three main characters points of view. Clarke, Wells, Glass, and Bellamy are all brave and loyal, and trying to figure out how to survive. Being teenagers, in the end they end up making whatever decision they want based on their hormones rather than what is the better choice for everyone. “Day 21” no longer uses the flashblacks that I grew to like in “The 100,” so I felt like the plot was a little lacking in the story. The flashbacks feld […]

“The 100″ by Kass Morgan is your average end of the world or maybe the beginning of one story. 100 teenagers are sent down to Earth to see if it is survivable. There is a colony of people that have been living on a spaceship called ‘the Arc’ because the earth suffered from radiation. The teenagers were criminals on ‘the Arc,’ so them being sent down to earth gives them a second chance at life in a way and it gives the people of ‘the Arc” a way of knowing if people are able to live on earth. The story […]

Teaser: “Okay, I’ll take you outside, but just for a little bit. I want to try hunting again before it gets dark.” He turned to Clarke. “That is, if the doctor says it’s okay.” Clarke nodded. “Just be careful.” She gave him a quizzical look. “Do you really think you’ll be able to hunt?” No one had seen a mammal yet, let alone tried to kill one.
