Inspired by the #bookbloggerchat that happened on Twitter recently, I decided to do something a little different with these reviews. What do you think? Did you get any sense of the books from these teeny snippets? Let me know!

Also, have you read any of these books? What did you think?

  1. This is such a fun idea!!! I could definetly understand what you were saying about each book! I haven’t read any of these but I’ve been pretty keen to read Shatter Me, to bad you didn’t enjoy it to much. Great post!!!

  2. What a cool way to review the books you’ve read! I’m not interested to read Shatter Me despite all the hype surrounding it, especially when you mentioned insta-love 😦 But Vicious is a book that’s almost on the top of my TBR!
