    The Raven Boys

    Author: Maggie Stiefvater Series: Raven Cycle #1 Published: September 25th 2012 Publisher: Scholastic Press Categories: Fantasy, Paranormal Rating: There’s something haunting—mesmerizing with this book even though I didn’t fully comprehend what I’ve just read. Based on the blurb alone I was expecting a romance story with teeny touch of paranormal or fantasy, or whatever genre the book was marketed for. I was crashed and burned plenty of times that I almost lost hope, that it is another misleading summary and—

    Eve and Adam

    Author: Michael Grant & Katherine Applegate Published: October 2nd 2012 by Publisher: Feiwel & Friends Categories: Fantasy, Science Fiction Rating: I expected a serious book but what I got was something…playful.

    Author: Gena Showalter Series: (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) Published: September 25th 2012 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Categories: Paranormal, Retelling Rating: Yet another classic novel I haven’t read and I shamelessly called myself a bookworm. Le sigh. Yes, good folks I haven’t read Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece that is Alice in Wonderland so I don’t have anything to say if this one’s a good retelling or not. But I heard that this book has little to no connection to the original and I’m—

    Destroy Me

    Author: Tahereh Mafi Series: (Shatter Me #1.5) Published: October 2nd 2012 by Publisher: HarperCollins Categories: Dystopia, Science Fiction Rating: I have to carefully form my thoughts and try not to sound the super excited Warner fan that I am. I’ve been eager to rationally explain why I like/prefer him. But this novella did that for me. And I thanked Tahereh Mafi for having this novella written that I can finally give a rebuttal to those who accused him, labeled him—
