The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
The Bane Chronicles

Kacey, January 4, 2015

If you enjoyed reading The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, you will of course love this book. Each chapter in The Bane Chronicles is a different story from sometime in Bane's life. The only thing connecting all the stories is the fact that Bane was in them. Some of the stories are adventurous and funny, some are exciting and happy, and some are sad. To be honest, I liked about half of the stories. Liking only about 50% of something usually isn't good, but let me tell you, there were two chapters that I just loved. Not just liked or enjoyed reading, I mean really loved. They made it feel like fireworks were going off around my heart. Worth reading the whole book just for those few chapters.

Forever Odd (Odd Thomas Novels) by Dean R Koontz
Forever Odd (Odd Thomas Novels)

Kacey, January 4, 2015

Dean Koontz came up with the craziest characters for this novel. Usually novels have one crazy/random character and that's fine. Koontz looks at that and says, "Nah man. Imma make em all crazy." Forever Odd is a page turner from the get go. The action starts almost immediately and never lets up. Add that to all the crazy characters you meet along the way and this book ends up being pretty freakin' awesome. I cannot WAIT to read the next one!

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
Odd Thomas

Kacey, January 4, 2015

I think this is the first time ever I've liked the movie better than the book. I did watch the movie first and I absolutely fell in love with it, so that might have something to do with it. Doesn't matter if it's the book or movie, the story is just fantastic! As usual the book allows you to become more intimate with the characters, learn more of their backstories, etc. I rather liked the life-is-perfect Stormy from the movie than the Stormy from the book that made my heart sad. Still, Odd Thomas is an great story and I cannot wait to read what Odd does next!

Fallen by Lauren Kate

Kacey, November 13, 2014

Fallen is a fun young adult novel I thouraghly enjoyed reading. In this romantic mystery Luce transfers to the strict reform school: the Sword and Cross. No cars, No cell phones, bars on the window and mold on the walls, it might possibly be the worst place to go for your senior year. Until she catches a glance of Daniel. Like a moth to a flame in the darkness, Luce is irresistibly drawn to him. However, Daniel wants absolutely nothing to do with her. Many of her new classmates talk to Luce like they already know her and they hint at a hidden history. What is going on?! You'll have to read to find out!

Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices #3)

Kacey, November 12, 2014

Clockwork Princess is the fantastical conclusion to the absolutely amazing Infernal Devices trilogy. If you haven't read the first two, what are you doing?! Go read them! Spoilers ahead!

Tessa is engaged to Jem! Wonderful, sweet Jem- who is dying. Will just found out he's not cursed and can love Tessa without hurting her. His revelation comes too late. Will could never take her from Jem. The Magister, however, is determined to do just that. And he has a giant unstoppable clockwork army. The London Institute is in a desperate fight for it's life. I don't want to say anymore, you just have to read it! It's so exciting! I cannot find the words to express how awesome it is! Read it!
