My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a scorching page turner this brilliant follow up to The Cruel Prince is! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. The one year wait is going to be excruciating.

There are so many hidden layers to Jude and Cardan’s relationship. I wish Ms Balck would pen a novella from Cardan’s POV, especially the month of Jude’s captivity. It would be illuminating to see behind his mask and know his true feelings for Jude.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Couldn’t put this down. All that intrigue, sub plots, story twists and tension between siblings, rivals and family made for an highly entertaining read.

One of the best faerie court high fantasy series I’ve come across. Hands down, one of my best buys this year!

Huge cliffhanger at the end got me all pumped for the finale. Great buildup to the big bomb. Enjoyed seeing the growth in maturity of the protagonists. M is Not your typical damsel in distress.

Review: Starcrossed

Starcrossed by Brenda Hiatt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a better follow up to Starstruck. With plenty of plot twists and like all other YA stories, the protagonists had to learn from the bad choices they made and try to figure a way out of those.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an unexpected find this is. Think Romeo and Juliet meet Star Trek and the plot gets interesting from there. Entertaining to read somewhat and humorous in parts.

Review: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

“It’s hard being left behind. I wait for Henry, not knowing where he is, wondering if he’s okay. It’s hard to be the one who stays.” —Clare

I read this book last year, originally for Keishon’s TBR Reading Challenge, but never got around to posting about it. So, for what’it’s worth, here’s my opinion of this highly original contemporary love story that redefines time travel romance.

My 2010 Reading PlanTitle: The Time Traveler’s Wife

Author: Audrey Niffenegger
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

On the Back cover:

This is the extraordnary love story of Clare and Henry who met when Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were ,arried when Clare was twnty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. In the face of this force, they can neither prevent nor control, hencyr and Clare’s struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and enirely unforgettable.
