Mini Reviews #1

Mini Reviews #1

Here is my first ever post with mini reviews. Mini reviews are just reviews that are well mini. I'm doing this today because I really got behind on my reviews and well I want to make a new start :P

Mini Reviews #1 is going to consist of mini reviews for:
  • Blood Promise by Richelle Mead
  • Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth

Blood Promise by Richelle Mead 

(Vampire Academy #4)
Genres: Vampires, Romance
Published: February 4 2010
Pages: 493 pages (Paperback Edition) (Penguin)
Read: September 2014
Rating: 5 Stars

Blood Promise is the fourth book in he Vampire Academy series. I really enjoyed this book. Yes, there was slow parts. There were parts were Rose was just going around in circles but there were intense, exciting parts too. The end of the book was such a rush and is the true reason behind my five stars. We also get to meet some real interesting characters here in this book, such as Abe and many others. I believe this book to be a great book as part of this series and I really can't wait to read on and see what happens. Richelle Mead just has a way of ending a book that leaves you craving for the next one. I recommend this book to those of you who have already loved the previous books!! :)

Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead 

(Bloodlines #5)
Genres: Vampires, Romance
Published: July 29 2014
Pages: 380 pages (Paperback Edition) (Penguin)
Read: November 2014
Rating: 5 Stars

Silver Shadows is the fifth book in he Bloodlines series and I was eagerly awaiting the release of this book. Why it took me so long to read it once it was released, don't ask. I'm sure some of you have seen my rants. Anyway I really really enjoyed this book. Like really really enjoyed it. It started with so much action and really tense that I was just hooked from page one and kept on going!!! I enjoyed this book very much and even got really suprised along the way, Silver Shadows was much shorter than the rest of the books in the Bloodlines series but because of its crammed tension and action, that aspect doesn't really matter. I can't wait to see how this series will end in The Ruby Circle....

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

(The Hunger Games #1)
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopia
Published: January 10 2009
Pages: 454 pages (Paperback Edition) (Scholastic Inc.)
Read: November 2014
Rating: 5 Stars

This read was a reread for me!!! I read this whole series back before the first movie came out which was a while ago :P I can't remember how long but anyway I loved this!! I loved how even though it was my second time reading this book I could still get hooked into the story and just read page after page. I'm not going to say much here as a full in depth discussion will be taking place between me and Jayne from Booking Awesome in the feature Across Blogs about this whole series!!

Divergent by Veronica Roth

(Divergent #1)
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopia
Published: February 2 2012
Pages: 489 pages (Paperback Edition) (HarperCollins Children's Books)
Read: November 2014
Rating: 5 Stars

All I could think was when I finished this book was that 'I should have read it sooner' Why didn't I jump on the bandwagon when it was happening and read this sooner???? I don't know but hey, better late than never right? Right?? 
Yes, so I, Sarah, have finally read Divergent by Veronica Roth and my opinion of this book is that.... IT WAS AWESOME!! I loved Tris. Tris was so different to our usual heroines!! She was bad ass yes, but I also found she had a dark side, a serious dark side. I wonder is this going to fault her later down the road??? Tris really intrigued me because of this.
Can I just say I loved Four!! I really loved him at the start of the book, with his sarcastic and confident demeanor, he does change as the book progresses but I think I can overlook that.
I loved this book for the characters and the intense story. Insurgent has a lot to live up to and I just can't wait to see what happens because well that blurb for Insurgent in a little vague....

Here are my little mini reviews!!! I hope you enjoyed them and well this occurrence will happen rarely, just when I'm snowed under with 3 or 4 reviews that I have to do :) God, I feel so happy now I can scratch these reviews off my to-do list!!!


  1. I remember reading Blood Promise and feeling so utterly frustrated with the whole Rose/Dimitri. It was all so sad =( but other than that, I did quite enjoy the book (even though I could use a reread since I read it like 3 years ago LOL). I need to read The Fiery Heart and then Silver Shadows now that the 6th book is coming earlier next year! YAY
    Lovely mini-reviews =)

    1. Oh I know. That whole kidnapping situation :p I couldn't believe what was happening when I was reading it!!

      Oh you should!! Read it soon :p It's a great series. I actually thought I wouldn't like it before I started, but my mind was completely changed :p

      Thank you!!!

      Did you recieve your books yet??? :p

  2. just reminded me I still haven't done my Silver Shadows review.......I'm ashamed.
    You're right, it was so action-packed...I didn't even notice it was shorter than the other ones when I was reading it!

    I'm glad you loved Divergent! Did you see the movie, by the way?

    1. Haha do a mini review!! :p I know, it was just one thing after the next really!! Makes me wonder what the final book will be like :)

      Ya!!! It was so good!! I want to get Insurgent and Allegiant now :p No I haven't seen it yet :p
