Review: The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele

Review: The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele

December 16, 2016 Reviews 4

The Marked Girl is an interesting read by debut author . Honestly I wasn’t expecting it! The book starts with an action scene but you quickly learn it is fake. The main character is a budding director and is filming a scene with friends, very Dawson’s Creek-ish if you ask me. It was fun twist when you are expecting a fantasy. Then people appear out of nowhere through a portal….now we’re getting somewhere with the fantasy 😉 Liv is a fun character. She’s a 17 year-old, foster girl that pretty much sticks to herself. She relies on few people and even fewer… Read more »

Please note that if you have not read the first two books in this series, there are minor spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk! I can’t even….that was amazing, awesome, SPECTACULAR and heart-wrenching all at the same time. Interception by is the heart-stopping, tear-inducing conclusion to Elle and Tristan’s story from the series. It picks up (if I’m not mistaken) about a year after the events of Addiction. Elle and Tristan have fallen into a comfortable routine with one another. Elle changed her major to journalism and is working for the school paper. Tristan has been invited for the NFL draft. The spark… Read more »

As 2016 comes to an end, I’ve already been scouting the books of 2017 so this week’s topic “Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To For The First Half Of 2017” was an easy one 😉 There… Read more »

Initial Reaction After 2 years of waiting, The Queen by finally hit shelves. Let me be one of the first to tell you…it is FANTASTIC!!!! Seriously y’all it was perfect. After the cliffhanger in The Dark King, I was worried. I was worried for the characters, the series, and I was preparing myself for no happily ever after. I’m so glad I was wrong 😀 The Queen picks up immediately where The Dark King left off. (Please note from here to the end of this review, there may be minor spoilers to previous books in the series.
