    Yeah....I'm calling it. dnfing around page 70. (so early, Katie? I know!) I don't rate books I don't finish, but right now I'd give this a 1- 1.5 stars. The writing style isn't for me. I don't like the characters. The instalove is already too much. And for lack of a better word,...

    So far so good. Not. Lured by the synopsis I began reading this book, and so far I find it to be full of topics: - curious girl who feels atracted to the new guy who just moved into town and nest house - misterious brooding new guy who just moved into town - paranormal events: cro...

    Meg Kassel's debut novel was packed with thrill, romance and a chase unlike any other. Delve into the world of paranormal and be prepared for the rush as the author delivered a gothic horror novel that is both thrilling and chilling in this original story of ancient mythical creatures ...

    Thank you so much to Entangled and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review this AWESOME paranormal treat by Meg Kassel! Wow, this was so different from anything else I've read lately and I really loved Meg Kassel's originality in creating this supernatural world and plot elements....

    3 stars!!! When I first read the blurb for this book, I was pretty excited I have to say. But, unfortunately, this turned out to be a very average read for me. I guess it's because I found the story to have a usual YA elements. There wasn't enough of unique elements to push me to gi...

    Checkout my full review + giveaway (ends 9/29) on my blog! http://omgbooksandmorebooks.blogspot.... I'm not sure how to start this review. This book was unique on so so many levels. The ideas behind this book are inspiring and there are many interesting twists with the mythology. Th...

    I don't mind authors who give themselves 5 stars or so. It's their work and they've invested time into bringing it to life. No judgement there. Also, anyone else get a Scythe (that is another book) feel from this blurb? Just the thing where death follows the Harbinger in this one an...

    Black Bird of the Gallows was hauntingly addicting, and I found myself completely mesmerized as the story unfolded. The creatures and curses were not only unique, but an eerie combination that at times terrified me. There were so many moments of subtle humor that had me laughing out lo...

    3.5 Stars ?I hold my breath and watch the crow glide away. It melts into the blackness, silent as a ghost. Lonely as the night. Dark as a boy?s eyes.? Black Bird of the Gallows is such a unique fantasy story! (and I think it?s a standalone too) We follow Angie Dovage as ...

    I've always had a tenuous relationship with bees. I was freaking petrified of them when I was younger, and only came to accept that they're actually pretty important about a year or two ago. So now, after reading a book about mutant psychosis-inducing bees, I'm back to square one, and ...

    Oh NO, it really finished guys :( !, that makes me so sad, I feel I need more of this world and its characters, read this book it was all an experience, I underestimated it and it really surprised me I want to thank NetGalley and Entangled Publishing,LLC for providing me with...

    Finally! I recommended a book to the library...and they actually purchased it for lil ole me! :D But when I went to mark it as currently reading on Goodreads, I noticed that there's now a sequel listed and I'm all Noooo! I thought this was a stand-alone!The book gods are cruel like t...

    ?3.5 Stars! Black Bird of the Gallows... ?His lips brush against mine in the whisper of a kiss. It?s different from any other. It tastes of certainty and sadness and promises that can never be made.? A few words to describe this book: 1) Intriguing 2) Unique 3) Cr...
