Third book in a row, and Pamela Yaye is still not done with thin and beautiful women. They are all skanks! Kill them all!
Candace Shaw’s Kimani debut is as lively as the newest arrival in the neighborhood morgue. Zzzzzz…
Zachary Black: Duke of Debauchery! He’s dumb, cruel, and melodramatic… just perfect for the histrionic idiot martyr heroine.
Another washed-up boyband trying to come back. Can’t blame them, but they could put more effort into it.
It’s a sexy romantic anthology that isn’t sexy or romantic. Let’s Dim the Lights out of shame, then?
Of all the vampires in movies, the dude in Dracula Untold may be the most tragic pushover of them all.
Tortuous writing and inadequate illustrations make this one a rather peculiar read. Good luck getting kids to enjoy the walls of text!
“Your Planet Needs You!” says Dave Reay. A nice sentiment, but asking kids to get Mum and Dad to move to a house with wind turbines? Yes, that will work.
Fake engagement is a staple of the genre, but it still needs to make sense. And Vivienne Lorret’s Daring Miss Danvers makes no sense at all, so… fail?
The Maze Runner could have been the most gory and scary dystopian teen flick to hit the screen, but it ends up being the most limpid one to date.
This is a Malaysian-brewed ghost story collection with very little Malaysian flavor. A shame – 13 Moons by Ee Leen Lee really needs a reason to stand out.
Backstreet Boys keep coming back, like geriatric uncles in stained boxer shorts trying to pull a Magic Mike before a crowd of bewildered teenage girls.
How cute, How the Scoundrel Seduces is patterned after the ramblings of a Tumblr social justice warrior. No? I’ll have to revoke the “Genius!” card then.
Do you want to be a princess? Do you want to read a princess fantasy story so badly that any story of this kind will do? Well, this is your lucky day.
Lady in Black by Christina Dodd feels like it was written after a binge on books by Sidney Sheldon, Harold Robbins, and Danielle Steel.
Two very interesting characters in an interracial romance set in Victorian England… should have been something to read and remember, right? Alas, it just has to be a novella.
Hot guy flees one psycho stalking ex-girlfriend into the clutches of a wildly insecure, violently emotional mess who is convinced that he’s cheating on her the moment he’s out of her sight. This will end well, oh yes.
This Western romance started out really good, but it soon becomes apparent that the heroine is robotic in her persistent obstinacy and paranoia. Oh, and she doesn’t want to be a whore. You’d be hearing that one a lot.
We have “street thug” Iggy Azalea and now we have “punk band” 5 Seconds of Summer. What is wrong with Australia and why are they doing this to the rest of the world?
Two hundred tornadoes hit a town all at the same time (or so it seems), things get blown up, inconsequential characters die. Business as usual.
