Review – NEVERMORE

Review – NEVERMORE

“Review”: I’m going to tell you right now that I started writing this post with every intention of reviewing Nevermore like I would any other book. That being said, it has kind of turned into a rant of how the Maximum Ride series has been going downhill with every book with bonus bits and pieces of a review. 😅 Do you know the feeling when the moment you have been waiting for over a year happens? That feeling has had a lot of time to […]

Review – CARRIER OF THE MARK

Review – CARRIER OF THE MARK

Review: There are many different words I can use to describe Carrier of the Mark. Boring is not one of them. However, unfortunately, familiar is. As good as the plot was, I virtually already knew what was going to happen next. It seems a bit like Josephine Angelini’s Starcrossed. Except, Starcross involves Greek mythology, while Carrier of the Mark has it’s own. Carrier of the Mark is about a girl, Megan, who just moved to Ireland. Starting after her mother’s death in a car accident, […]

How […]
