Little Forevers was a let down for me. First, I must mention that I read an Advanced Reader Copy of the book, so there were still edits to be made to the version I read before it would be released. That means the final version could be better than my copy. But even so, I think this book was poorly edited and that the writing was not up to my expectations. Despite that, I still enjoyed the plot, characters, romance,… Read more »

Possible spoilers ahead… So, I keep seeing blurbs and descriptions advertising this book as having a “riveting dystopian world,” of being a “thrilling superhero story” (both on the back blurb of my paperback copy) and of being a “dystopian thriller” (on wikipedia)… however, that’s not really accurate. I mean, yeah the world is dystopian, and the main character can kill people by touching them can I please have this power, and mayyybeee that makes it a dystopian thriller. But in my opinion, it… Read more »

I was never a big fan of Sex and the City. It wasn’t something that ever held my attention, though I have seen many episodes, reruns on tv late at night, and the movies, thanks to my mom (who fangirled over them a little). I wasn’t even interested in reading The Carrie Diaries when it first came out a few years ago, but somehow I ended up hooked on the TV show that premiered on the CW a little while… Read more »

**This review may contain spoilers!** I was so excited to read this book when I first heard of it on twitter, but of course, me being me, it took months before I ended up with  a copy (as a gift for Christmas from my mom), and even another month before I actually started reading it. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations and the premise pretty quickly. First of all, the romance that is supposed to be the central plot… Read more »

My Thoughts This was a very short read, with only about twenty pages, so there wasn’t a lot of room for character development, which would have been fine, had the story been more interesting. The plot, the characters, the whole time-travelling back in time to meet James Dean storyline was great, and I feel like this would have been a book I’d have really enjoyed, but it just didn’t… hold my attention. It felt like the entire story was being… Read more »

This book was frustrating. Honestly, the way it was written bothered me to no extent. I don’t know if I was just being picky, but I was constantly irritated by the long descriptions of her morning routine, or how she spent the rest of her uneventful day. It seemed like there were so many filler scenes like this where nothing was really happening, but yet, there were long paragraphs about this nothingness. As for the plot, some parts were SUCH… Read more »

Review: Deadly Drive – Justine Korman Fontes

Review: Deadly Drive – Justine Korman Fontes

This book was a very fast read. There wasn’t much room for development, for the characters or plot. In a way, the the plot-line was similar to the crash that happened in the story, starts off a little slow, then before you know it, it’s over and you’re left wondering where the story went. The main character, Rob, seems a little forced and often cold to what is happening. While the others, Gabi and Adam, are shocked and emotional. He seems to… Read more »
