Review for Light of A Thousand Stars by Siobhan Davis- 5 bee's knees!

I loved getting a glimpse into Zane and Ari before their separation. I'm very curious about Gil and Emily, my thoughts keep leading me towards a revelation about them, and although I am not totally in love with what my mind is coming up with, I think it will be an interesting read, but I suppose I'll have to wait for the next book to see how the story evolves. Also, I think Zane needs to change his definition for what he thinks a "nice" girl is because I think his interpretation is lacking, and I feel along the same lines as Ari on this point; he needs to not be so ignorant to other people's actions towards himself when it affects Ari. I'm wondering how an event in this book will come into play in the next book, since we didn't get too much information on it. I don't want to give anything away, so I'm being very vague about it, but I think it'll be tough for Ari to deal with. This short story was definitely a needed addition to the series, and I am still very much unable to pick which guy I like more! I think everyone needs to have all their cards on the table before I can truly see who would be best. I sense more torture coming up in the next book before anything is "solved", so I expect a very interesting read!

Review for Beyond Reach by Siobhan Davis- 5 bee's knees!

This story is getting super good! I'm loving it! Can't wait for the next book!  I love dystopia stories, so this story definitely keeps me interested, and I enjoy the sci-fi aspect.  I love how the story is so complete, it's just not about the romance, it's much more involved.  The romance is still very present, but so many more events are happening, that it doesn't become cloying.  I'm not a huge fan of love triangles, but I'm not quite annoyed with it in this series.  I do still really dislike Isla, I'm totally okay if she ends up sacrificing herself for the others, totally cool with that!  If in the end Ariana doesn't choose Zane, I am very much hoping he doesn't end up with Isla, actually I hope no one ends up with Isla, well maybe Cal's brother, that would be interesting!  I'm okay with that scenario.  Something I hate in books is when whoever the leading lady doesn't choose automatically falls in love with someone else! If you were so in love with the leading lady, how is it that you can just fall in love with someone else so quickly!  I hope that doesn't happen in this series!  I'm going to try to be vague about something I don't want to happen in the story, so I don't ruin it for anyone, so be forewarned that this may be a slight bit spoilery.  I hope a certain situation turns out to be just an affair, and not a related issue, and also I'm wondering if Cal were to regain is memories, would there be a girl he liked before; I would hate that!, okay that's all I'm going to say about that! I liked the alternating POV chapters, but I did skim through some of Zane's chapters because of a certain someone, but I still like getting glimpses into other people's minds.  Maybe there can be some chapters for Cal in the next book!  I'm still not sure who I want Ariana to pick, but I suppose I'm leaning towards Cal.  All I'm hoping is that whoever it is, doesn't just find some other girl, just let them be heartbroken, then they can come to terms with, and it will be implied that they will be just fine!  I will definitely read the next book, and I really enjoy Siobhan Davis' writing, so I will look into other books by her as well!

Review for Lovestruck by Siobhan Davis- 5 out 5 bee's knees!

I loved this addition to the series! Reading from Cal's perspective was excellent, and it definitely endured him to me all the more.  Reading this made me want to go back and read the first book, so I could re-read how Ariana and Cal became a couple, they are so sweet together.  I'm really looking forward to the next book, and any books after that! I do wish this was longer though, I would love to read Cal's perspective when Ariana finally starts letting him in.  This is a great series, and I can't wait till the mysteries are solved!

Review for Just a Little Flirt by Renita Pizzitola- 4 out of 5 bee's knees

I didn't love this one quite like I loved the first book, but I still really liked this book.  I think the main thing I didn't enjoy was the whole party girl aspect.  I don't enjoy reading books that have to do with a girl who gets drunk and sleeps with guys, and she doesn't even enjoy it! And she keeps saying she feels fine about it, but everything she describes doesn't sound like she does, and it seems like she's forcing herself to be the party girl because she has poor self esteem; even though she portrays herself as so confident, and I felt the book missed the mark on showing how it really wasn't a good choice for Fallon to be that way.  If a girl wants to sleep around, fine, but she shouldn't have to get trashed to do it, and close off her emotions.  I don't think the situation was really dealt with.  It's a problem.  I loved the Scout scenes, such a sweetie, and I think Cade is wonderful; I like reading about a nice guy for a change.  I liked the glimpses of Brinley and Ryder, and I hope they are in future books as well.  Fallon grew on me as I kept on reading, and I loved the scenes with her dad; they were funny and heartwarming.  It's too bad Fallon's sister didn't wise up in time, but a book may be in the works for her, and hopefully a book for Mason.  I liked that Fallon and Cade met volunteering, and the way they meet was really cute.  All in all this was a sweet romance with characters who had some life to them, and I enjoyed reading it, and I will definitely read any further books in this series, or by Renita Pizzitola.
