Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

1 Stars, DNF, Reviews 1

DNF Review. I could would not finish this book. I was excited to read this because I thought it’d be a fun and dramatic romance that I would love, and I’ve heard good things about Colleen Hoover so I was eager to see what the buzz was about. However, this book was a HUGE disappointment. Even worse, it made me feel all gross and uncomfortable and angry. BLAH. The felt repulsed by the characters and their actions and I WILL RANT… Read more »

Review: Owlet by Emma Michaels

Review: Owlet by Emma Michaels

1 Stars, Reviews 2

the plot Owlet started off with a very mysterious tone that made you curious to learn more about Iris’ world, which kept me flipping the pages, anxious to figure out what was happening which is usually a good thing… except for the most part, I stayed very confused and curious. Iris is apart of a secret society, The Society of Feathers or the Eyrie/Stryx (I still haven’t really managed to figure out the difference there, more on that later) but… Read more »

Review: The Only Boy by Jordan Locke

Review: The Only Boy by Jordan Locke

1 Stars, Reviews 6

I LOVE the cover of this book. It fits SO well and it’s gorgeous, but obviously a cover doesn’t make a book. The Only Boy by Jordan Locke had potential. SO MUCH potential. But it was lacking for several reasons. One: The writing was dull. It felt like there was no emotion, no expression from the characters. It was boring, in all honesty. It was pure curiosity that drove me forward with this story. Two: The characters were flat. They… Read more »

Review: Beowulf by Burton Raffel

Review: Beowulf by Burton Raffel

1 Stars, Reviews 6

Before Reading Beowulf I have to read this for my AP Lit summer homework and I really don’t want to read it. It’s just not something I can enjoy. Ugh! After Reading Beowulf I expected to hate this book, and I was right. It was a totally MISERABLE read. I could not wait to be finished with it. I dreaded starting this book and if it wasn’t required reading for my AP Lit class, I would have DNF’d it right… Read more »

Review: The Pretenders by Lisi Harrison

Review: The Pretenders by Lisi Harrison

1 Stars, Reviews 0

the plot The foreword starts off great, and made me eager to read on, but I was quickly disappointed. The foreword set me up to expect a more dramatic story about five journals that get leaked for the school to read, and I assumed we’d be reading a story about how people reacted to the leaked journals, along with the journals themselves, but all we got were the journals, which didn’t leave much of a plot. It was like reading… Read more »

Review: Elixir – Hilary Duff!

Review: Elixir – Hilary Duff!

1 Stars, Reviews 2

I was sort of excited to start reading Elixir because I have always been a fan of Hilary Duff, but sadly, Elixir was a bit of a disappointment. The storyline was… cliché… I hate to say it because almost all storylines are, in some way, cliché, but in Elixir is was very obvious. It was hard to get rid of the nagging feeling that the plotline was overdone and unoriginal. I didn’t really like the way the story was told,… Read more »
