Review: Blackbird

Blackbird Blackbird by Molly McAdams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Because he is the darkness
He is the devil….
…and I love him”

"Blackbird fly, blackbird fly. Into the light of the dark black night."

How can you possibly be jealous of a girl who has been kidnapped and taken from her home, and all of the people she loves? It's fantasy, it's unrealistic, but that's exactly how I found myself feeling. Every time I would think that it would be followed by "seriously, stop.. you're crazy". It was a weird feeling, and one I wasn't completely comfortable with; but that's one of the joys of reading, gaining the ability to step outside your comfort zone and experience things in a new way.

Review: Until It Fades

Until It Fades Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Life is too short to do what other people think you should do.”
― K.A. Tucker, Until It Fades

I usually like K.A. Tucker, and this was no exception, even though the theme of the poor girl being swept away by the rich sports star is completely unoriginal. For that reason, I almost didn't read it, but I still enjoyed it because Catherine was a very relatable character. Both she and Brett were humble which made the whole thing more tolerable. If you're looking for your next favorite book, this probably isn't it, but if you're looking for an easy, interesting read; Until It Fades will do nicely.
