{Review+Giveaway} See You in Hell by Demelza Carlton

{Review+Giveaway} See You in Hell by Demelza Carlton

I read See You in Hell right after I finished the short little prequel called Welcome to Hell. You certainly don’t need to read Welcome to Hell first though in order to understand See You in Hell. See You in Hell starts out with Mel starting a job in the Hell Corporation, which stands for the Health, Environment, Life and Lands Corporation. (Welcome to Hell just showed Mel’s job interview for her temp position.) Melody Angel is an angel, working as a temp in the Hell Corporation to try and see if the rumors that Lucifer is there and planning some sort of big takeover are true. Mel thinks that the CEO, Luce Iblis could be Lucifer himself. I loved See you in Hell. It was funny as heck, well planned out and executed and ended up going in a completely different direction that I originally thought it would. Mel is a wonderful character. She breaks all the stereotypes for angels. She is as good as they come, but she… Read more »

{Review} Darkness Watching by Emma Adams

{Review} Darkness Watching by Emma Adams

Darkness Watching is the first book in the Darkworld series. I found Darkness Watching to be well developed and a very intriguing plot line. The book is told from Ashlyn’s point of view, and she didn’t know anything about this new world where demons and shadow creatures existed, so for a lot of the novel we felt all of her confusion and paranoia with everything and everyone. I didn’t even know who to trust. We only knew what Ashlyn knew. It was a very effective technique to help me feel connected to Ash. Ash is a strong girl. I felt awful that she didn’t get into Oxford at the start of the book, but then when she started at Blackstone university things were looking up for her. I loved how her flat was described and I liked that she had five other roommates for us to get to know. I liked both of the girls and I liked David but I went back and forth with my feelings for him… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Essence by A.L. Waddington

{Review+Giveaway} Essence by A.L. Waddington

Essence takes place in two time periods. The chapters alternate between the present, 2009 and 1848. I really enjoyed trying to piece the mystery of what was happening together. I liked reading the dual stories because I just couldn’t pinpoint what exactly was happening. Some of the characters were the same, but many of the characters in the two time periods were different not only in name, but also in personality. So I just couldn’t figure out if they were all going to have “future/past” selves or if only one person was time traveling, or if it was something paranormal. But then again, that is kind of the point of the whole book. Trying to figure out just what was going on. And I thought the answer was really very interesting. I will warn you though, you have to wait pretty much the whole book, until the answer is revealed. It was kind of frustrating, but effective because now I really want to read the next book because I want… Read more »

{Review +Giveaway} The Looking Glass by Jessica Arnold

{Review +Giveaway} The Looking Glass by Jessica Arnold

The Looking Glass is a really interesting take on a re-telling. The girls name is Alice, and she ends up on the other side of a mirror, but that is about where the similarities stop. Jessica Arnold has created a completely new, creepy, intriguing and utterly fascinating world in her spooky hotel. I loved watching Alice explore it, both through the diary she finds and through running from room to room. I felt Alice’s pressure the whole book, just hanging there in the air. I felt like I had to keep reading because if I didn’t then Alice would run out of time to figure out whatever she needed to figure out to get out of that house and back to the real hotel. I loved that she was transported to basically an alternate mirror world of the hotel where she was vacationing with her family. I will admit that I was kind of confused when I started reading the book, but this is the kind of book where you… Read more »
