  1. I am so waiting for Tris and Izzie. I only stumbled across this tale a couple of years ago on a movie channel somewhere and fell in love with the story. I understand this one isn't real deep but still, I love the story! And the Theatre Illuminata So Silver Bright- I really want to read those books! Soon! Come see my blog post from Egyptian writer Amira Aly.

  3. These all look great, although I haven't read the earlier books in the series for So Silver Bright. The other two will definitely be on my list.

  4. I really like the pretty cover for Tris & Izzie... it's too bad that the reviews I've read for the novel haven't been so great. I'm really looking forward to reading The Beginning of After as well! :)

  5. I read - The Beginning of After
    It was just OK for me, I only gave it 3 stars, it didn't suck! But it could have been more.

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
