    The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

    Title: The Replacement Author: Brenna Yovanoff Pages: 343 Rating: There is something a little off with my definition of what is scary. While I do find Deadly Little Secret (book one only, oh maybe book two as well) a bit creepy but that didn’t scared the socks out of me. So I have high hopes that The Replacement will do the same or more, with all the rave reviews it got. But it wasn’t, and sad to say no part—

    Short Reviews

    Let’s do an experimental entry. I’ll do multiple reviews – short reviews. I’m a fast reader and I don’t like to stop, so the result, my reviews are tend to pile up. Even an ok book deserved something to say – at least some positive that is. Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis Rating: I kinda like the book, and definitely fall in my ‘ok books.’ Not bad but, of course not that good (if it is then I shouldn’t rate as—

    Angel by L.A. Weatherly

    Title: Angel Author: L.A. Weatherly Pages: 512 Rating: “Eoin Colfer reinvented the fairy, Stephenie Meyer reinvented the vampire, L.A. Weatherly reinvents the angel!” Ok, that’s a big statement. I agree with Meyer changing the whole view of vampires as the glittering, marble hard and pale creatures. While I haven’t read Atermis Fowl series (which I will, soon), I’m pretty much aware of its popularity (my sister is living, breathing testimony of it). So as far as agreeing with that bold—

    Deadly Little Games by Laurie Faria Stolarz

    Title: Deadly Little Games Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz Pages: 304 Rating: I’m doing one entry a day, sparing some few minutes to write something to avoid backlog. So if you find something strange (but come to think of it, I write really weird (and grammatically wrong lmao), that’s me and my inability to express in proper English. Oh, and my poor eyesight. I’ll go straight with my entry, Deadly Little Games is the third book from the Touch series, and—

    Hexbound by Chloe Neill

    Title: Hexbound Author: Chloe Neill Pages: 224 Rating: I didn’t do Firespell last year so I might pitch in some of my opinions of the book. I find my liking of the book a little weird actually. Was it entertaining? Yes. Is it unique? Nope. But that said I like it in some strange way. I keep saying it because the Dark Elite series definitely fall in the mediocre YA book category, and yet the book’s appeal certainly grabs me—

    Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

    Title: Unearthly Author: Cynthia Hand Pages: 435 Rating: This is one of the 2011 new titles I’ve been looking forward to read. I’ve been more open to angels ever since I read a bunch of titles that revolves around this mythology, now setting aside my obvious religious stance. Though Unearthly is unquestionably refreshing, it somehow didn’t deliver all my expectations. Nonetheless, the book was a great read. I admit the angel with a purpose is a nice twist. I really—

    Wings by Aprilynne Pike

    Title: Wings Author: Aprilynne Pages: 294 Rating: Why the hell did I tried this one? It’s completely absurd and since I obviously can’t find a nice word to say, let’s just say it in plain and simple words – I didn’t like it. People were right, if it wasn’t endorsed by Stephanie Meyer I might not pick this book at all. I mean flower blossoming at your back, definitely a sign of bizarre plot on its way. I should trust—

    So I can keep myself from whining in every post, I’m not doing entry in each book I read but I will still list them. You can find them at my booklist, however, though I might not review (shocks, I’m using the term now) I will still rate them (1 as the lowest and 5 as the highest). Let’s face it, reviewing is really hard work, and sometimes I don’t know what to say with ok books (especially the ones—

    The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

    Title: The Lost Saint Author: Bree Despain Pages: 416 Rating: I’m way (waaaaaay) behind schedule and yet I wanted to commit myself with other things like the 30 day book meme. I’ll probably will do it, maybe here (or maybe not here) maybe on livejournal, or dreamwidth or maybe in my tumblr (for someone who doesn’t want to maintain these things, I have lots of account lol). I’ll go straight with my entry (I’m still not confident… and comfortable using—

    Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

    Title: Nightshade Author: Andrea Cremer Pages: 452 Rating: Just crap! I’m way behind schedule. After my rigorous reading habit for the past few months, my pacing (my reading pace) becomes a bit faster. So I can read a book in one night. If I’m really bored I can finish two, haha. Apparently I don’t have a life – a complete FML if you ask me. My best companions are books. I miss web design somehow. Shall open photoshop one of—

    My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

    Title: My Soul to Steal Author: Rachel Vincent Pages: 352 Rating: I’ve been looking around from goodreads user’s review, to Ms. Rachel Vincent’s accounts (formspring, twitter and her blogs (and forums) for spoilers. Yes, I’m so excited that I really don’t care if I look like a deranged stalker, because those tidbits of spoilers people talked about left me craving for more info. I only found out the series in November, so the waiting game for me isn’t that long—

    Jealousy by Lili St. Crow

    Title: Jealousy Author: Lili St. Crow Pages: 316 Rating: It sucks that I’m unable to finish this book in time. I was sort of wishing that the first book I finished reading for 2011 will be My Soul to Steal. New Year’s eve is really a busy day (a lot of distraction actually) that I managed to finish the book the next day – 1st of January. So technically, I should list it in my 2011 read list. Anyway, I’m—

    The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

    Title: The Iron Daughter Author: Julie Kagawa Pages: 359 Rating: **I’m so pissed that I didn’t do all the post I’ve wanted before the new year starts but because I’m the greatest slacker (and procrastinator) there is, look what happened. Everything is all messed up. Guess, I’m not gonna make any post to rest of the books I’ve read the later days of last year, well except this one. I’m itching to write an entry, probably the last for my—
