Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate)
Quickie POV: A charming and very witty mix of a multitude of sub-genres. Soulless kept me fixated on the plot while entertaining me throughout with laugh-out-loud moments and I think I might have even …

Pretties (Uglies Trilogy, Book 2)
I have to say that while I really liked this book that I was disappointed in the ending. This follow-up to "Uglies" was just as well written... just as intriguing and page turning... but having an ending …

Skinned (Skinned Trilogy)
Fascinating premise that was well thought out, but which, unfortunately, wasn't exactly my cup of tea.    The story in brief: a girl is dying from an accident. Her bereaved parents, …

Crashed (Skinned, Book 2)
I didn't realize this was book 2 when I picked it up - I have to go back and get the first now! Similar in a lot of ways to Uglies but original as well, definitly a futuristic sci-fi that fans of Westerfeld …

Elantris
Where do I begin? I think since I read the Mistborn books before this (his fantasy debut) it gives me a bit of an edge. I can see some of the theories and ideas that he formed in Elantris taking fuller …

Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate)
When trying to figure out how to categorize Soulless all I could really think of was 'Historical Paranormal Romantic Spoof'...because honestly everything and everyone, in the beginning of the book, was …

This novel was very well written. At first, I wasn't really liking Mary so much, but as the book went on a few chapters, I started to connect with her. Mary's one dream is to see the ocean, but an unrealistic …

Oryx and Crake
I only recently discovered Ms. Atwood and I must say that I'd like to flog myself in regret. While her writing is certainly good, it is not nearly as fabulous as her imaginings which border on genius. …
