My Teaser:  The room bustled with noise around them. Tables made a half circle around the edge of the Majestic Hall, and a dance floor stretched out in front of them, with the musicians at the other end. The wedding guests were a flurry of color around them—red and orange and green gowns spinning to the music, the men in mostly white or tan, with bursts of color in the forms of flowers on their lapels. No one wore blue, as that was reserved for Em’s dress and the blue flower on Cas’s gray jacket. About love2dazzle Ali Kiki is […]


Mini Review: Steel Scars by Victoria Aveyard

Mini Review: Steel Scars by Victoria Aveyard
Posted February 8, 2016 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

“Steel Scars” by Victoria Aveyard was very confusing to me. I am still not totally sure I know what the result of this novella was. The mission communications were really boring and I still don’t know exactly what they were trying to say. I was looking forward to learning more about Farley and I don’t feel like I learned anything. As soon as Shade entered the story, I feel like that is when things became more interesting and then I wanted to learn more. I still don’t understand the reports but I can’t help but love how Farley and Shade […]

Why I am Waiting? This is Kiera Cass…need I say more? I am waiting for “The Crown” because I am in love with this series. “The Heir” was a little lacking for me but I still liked it, so I am hoping that “The Crown” will be much better. I feel like Cass left us all hanging. I need to know the end. About love2dazzle Ali Kiki is a reader, writer, reviewer, blogger, and photographer in Portland, OR.

“Throne of Glass” by Sarah J Maas is amazing. I am in love with these characters and this book and this series! I own both the audiobook and the hardcover. I kept going back and forth between the two depending on if I was out and about or just at home. Celaena is Adarlan’s assassin. The Prince and his Captain have come to get Celaena out of Endovier to compete in a competition to become the King’s champion. If Celaena wins she can eventually have her freedom after being the King’s assassin. As Celaena cooperates to gain her freedom, she learns that something strange is going […]

Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Posted June 22, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

“Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard is absolutely amazing!! I was definitely impressed with Aveyard’s debut novel. Now I am anxious for more. Mare Barrow is the main character of this lovely story. Mare is an unimportant red or at least that is how society looks at her. Red’s aren’t important, they are the people who do all the work and have nothing special about them. This world is divided by the color of your blood. Red vs. Silver. Silver blooded people have powers or abilities were they have this extra talent they are able to do or perform. When Mare ends up randomly getting […]


Book Review: The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson

Book Review: The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
Posted June 11, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

“The Crown of Embers” by Rae Carson is a fantastic sequel. I was very excited to see what is in store for Elisa and her kingdom. Carson creates such a unique world for her readers that it is so addicting. I really don’t ever want to leave the world that Carson has created. It is magical and fun. This book surpassed all expectations that I could have had. I think Elisa grew up so much since the first book. She is no longer just a princess that was married off. She is now a queen trying to protect her new […]

“The Heir” by Kiera Cass was definitely a surprise to most. The Selection was supposed to end with “The One” but Cass surprised us all with more. “The Heir” is all about getting to know Princess Eadlyn. King Maxon and Queen America want nothing more than their daughter to discover the happiness that they have together but their daughter Princess Eadlyn seems to want nothing more than to be independent. When the country is in an uproar because of the castes being eliminated, Maxon and America decide that having a selection for Eadlyn could be the answer to distracting the rest of the kingdom. King […]

My Teaser: I considered. So far the Selection hadn’t been anything I’d expected. It had opened with people assaulting me with food, complaining about my first elimination, and judging my kiss with Kile. Even though I was just figuring out that, for me, there was something inherently unappealing about getting married, I couldn’t help but wonder if I’d take someone simply for the sake of making Dad happy. Ever time I looked into his eyes, I was more and more aware of how tired he seemed. About love2dazzle Ali Kiki is a reader, writer, reviewer, blogger, and photographer in Portland, OR. […]


Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Posted March 26, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

“The Girl of Fire and Thorns” by Rae Carson is very unique and unusual. One of my favorite things about this book is that Elisa, the main heroine, makes a complete100% change by the end of the book. I also like that the small amount of romance that is in this book is subtle and sweet. It doesn’t take up the entire story. Elisa is the bearer of the godstone. The godstone is a magical stone that is embedded in the navel of the person that is blessed. Only one person receives this gift a century and usually there is […]
