  • Jessica
    Updated review:The actual rating I'm giving this book is 3.5 stars. Don't get me wrong, I still love the gang but this just didn't do it for me. Quite frankly, I'm a bit disappointed on how this book turned out. I really wanted to love this one. It was boring.. I guess, I was just looking for more action. Nonetheless, I'm still hooked and I can't wait for the other books.P.S. We need more of Mr. Blackbourne!!!! :D----------------------IT'S OFFICI...

    I think I'm finally ready to write this review. And over time, I've started to recognize the problems within this plot line and that's why it has been downgraded for me, from a 5 star to a 3.5. Because let's be honest here. Nothing really happened in this book.The best way to look at these books is as if you're watching a TV show. There are episodes that are action packed and you're constantly trying to keep up with what is going on throughout th...

    100% worth waiting for. Get the tissues and make sure you have a free day because you are not going to be able to put this magnificent book down. This book is definitely a tear-jerker, but has happy moments as well. C.L. Stone's writing grabs your attention from the first few words, to the very last one. I couldn't have asked for it to be any better.

  • Pao
    "They don't date anyone else. They're with me" NOW we're talking. This is what I was waiting for. I loved this freakin' book so much! I'm still floating like Sang. I don't even know where to start.Gabriel❤...Gabriel Joseph Coleman was the best. You make me want to go all 1D on you (that's bad)Poor Gabe is so insecure, so damaged. His stepmom is kinda crazy. But, as Sang says, he's beautiful and I completely adore him.(view spoiler)[HIS KISS!! O...
  • Shannon (aka The Tale Temptress)
    I've been waiting very impatiently for this book to come out and was lucky enough to receive an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Well, honestly, I'm just as in love with this series now as I've ever been. This latest installment was such a welcome addition to the series. It was perfect!This time around, the focus of the story is Sang and Gabriel. I loved having an opportunity to get to know Gabriel on a deeper level, as I fe...

    I. AM. SO. DISAPPOINTED!I was so anxious to read this book. I was counting down, excited and more than eager to get my hands on it. I feel like the months of waiting were more like years! I even re-read all the other books in the series in the past few weeks just to prepare for it... and then all I got was this boring drivel. I am seriously pissed. And now it's going to be another SIX MONTHS of waiting for the next book! Seriously, the best thing...

  • Jody McGrath
    I love this series...but I had a few problems with this book. First though, the things I liked...1. Gabriel. He is awesome and he seems the most real of all of them to me. Teenagers, attitude, and insecurities all go together. He has the perfect combination of attitude and insecurities. He is moody and sometimes lashes out. That is real to me.2. The gang. I like all of them. Some are more believable than others, sometimes I can't see how their pe...
  • Tara Zormier
    Shit! I read it too damn fast and now it's OVER.... Nooooooooooooo! Oh my goodness I love Sang; I just adore her! And Gabriel, my heart (sigh)! I am, I mean, I just, I don't have the words. How much more can my girl take before she gets to the good part of life? How much longer does she have to feel unwanted, unloved, and cast aside before one of the guys tells her how loved she is by all? They need a family meeting and they need to talk about wh...
  • Megan
    Eep they keep getting worse and worse to me. I started enjoying them but now not so much.
  • Paula Phillips
    When it comes to The Academy books, I am always forever in two minds. Part of me loves them and the characters in the books, but the other half of me gets so frustrated with them at the same time. So much that I want to scream and tell them all to talk or at least grow up. The Other Side of Envy was one of the most frustrating ones that I have read so far in The Academy series as it was like seriously Sang, stop playing games and set the boys inc...

    I finish the 7th book " The House of Kobra " and it was awesome. I cannot wait until this book comes out!!!!!! I hope with all my heart the C.L. Stone will write more of " Sang and her boys " ( that is the name I've given them lol!! ). April is next month but I can't WAIT AT ALL!!!!! I am in love with all the guys how can you not love them right? Well I just want to say is that I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!1 MORE DAY!!!!!Updated April 28 WELL ITS FIN...
  • Brittney
    Oh.My.God.Can I just reverse time and reread the entire series for the first time? That is how much I love these books. Sang and the boys are so amazing and I am so happy Gabriel got his own book and got to spend one-on-one time with Sang. I have to say Gabriel is my favorite and I loved every single minute of this book and I will now probably go into a state of depression now that it is over. The next book can literally not come here soon enough...
  • Taryn
    *makes nonsensical noises by moving her finger up and down over her lips* That's what reading the Ghost Bird series is like. It's a bunch of painfully slow nonsense that you just kind of roll with because you can't help yourself.Sang hasn't changed. She finally gets clued into the plan, which it to have her date every single guy in her team, and even gets some advice from the woman of the original harem team, Lilly, yet she sits on the informatio...
  • Jennifer
    McCoy's return has Sang hiding out with Gabriel, who is rather embarrassed by his home life. Even as he and Sang get some alone time to get to know each other, Gabriel loses a lot of confidence by comparing himself to Victor and the other guys. He starts to distance himself. It's up to Sang to reassure him.This is becoming one of my favorite YA series. It has plenty of action, but the romance is very slow burning. I still appreciate how respectfu...
  • Joy Ellis
    WARNING this is a more of a rant and there are spoilers lately I feel as if the details don't match up in this series. I think this was in the third book but she's telling her dad that she's sixteen, next thing you know she's still fifteen and about to turn sixteen. The time also throws me off. One moment it's morning the next paragraph it's late at night. I feel like there are things mentioned but we forget about it. Like what about Will? He gav...
  • Sharon Mariampillai
    I love Sang, she is the best heroine ever. I hate the bad stuff that she goes through. Also, I love how the boys protect her. I think it is intense yet beautiful. They make the story funny and serious when it needs to be. I wonder how she is going to choose between the nine of them. I think she will have to get married to them all.My favourite boy is North. Silas is my second favourite. Then, Mr. Blackbourne rounds out my top three. Each boy brin...
  • Jana
    I wish it was longer. Spoilers included. (I've hit the button but I'm not sure they are hidden.)I'm glad that Sang found the other (so far) functioning bird/dog group, but five people versus ten? It's a lot different. I find it interesting that in an innocent looking young adult book that the author is going toward a non-traditional relationship. Good thing Sang doesn't like to be alone!Glad to see the deeper side of Gabriel. So based on this, Ko...
  • Mylia Muse
    Oh this book...Gabriel. GABRIEL!!There were so many times that I just wished I could reach into the book and hug him so much.He, Luke and Sang really are the Three Amigos and I hurt for Sang when she was hurt and confused over how Gabriel was acting.And yay for starting to admit feelings for each other -- even if they're worried about it.I really, really despise Mrs. Sorenson and Mr. McCoy and dislike Marie a whole lot.So may things I want to kno...
  • Bethyboo ღ The Book Addict ღ
    This series is so difficult to binge read. Sang is just... I don't even know. I understand why she is the way that she is, but I'm currently 8 books in and I feel like she hasn't really made much progress. She still keeps things from the guys and her inner monologues are extremely annoying at times. I know it wouldn't be this bad if I hadn't read 8 books in two days but yeah. I'm at least happy the romance aspect is moving along and I'll still co...
  • Kelli Zore
    Best one yet!!!This one was the best one yet!!! I feel like we learned so much about this series in this book! I love Gabriel and North and their relationship with Sang! She is really starting to develop strong friendships with the boys. I feel like she is developing and learning to trust the boys more as well. Yay! Can't wait for the next one! I really enjoyed the preview! I had one of those "honest, what are you laughing about" moments with my ...
