Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

4 Stars, Reviews 0

The Infinite Sea wasn’t quite as good as The 5th Wave. Although I thoroughly enjoyed The Infinite Sea, I was really hoping to have the same reading experience that I had with the first book. Both followed a similar pattern in the plot, so it wasn’t like the sequel was off topic or anything. BUT, when I read the first book I stayed up all night long reading. I finished it in one sitting. So I was a bit disappointed when I wasn’t as… Read more »

Review: It Started with Goodbye by Christina June

Review: It Started with Goodbye by Christina June

4 Stars, Reviews 2

It Started with Goodbye is CUTE! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I love that its a modern take on the Cinderella fairy tale. However, I felt like it was lacking a bit in terms of depth. Don’t get me wrong, this is a wonderful story that has a some awesome characters. WHO HAVE FUN HOBBIES. AND A CUTE SHIP. I just kept expecting there to be some greater level of meaning at some point, but there wasn’t. That’s okay, though…. Read more »

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

4 Stars, Reviews 10

Hola! I found Before I Go to Sleep to be quite intriguing. I knew the experience would be different, with it being the first adult novel I’ve ever read. It definitely suits me recently turning 20 (woop woop). To put it in the simplest of terms, it was good. I won’t go as far as to say that it was amazing, but I definitely did enjoy myself. I guess that’s all that really matters, right? Alright, gotta do a little background… Read more »

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

4 Stars, Reviews 6

I started reading By Your Side by Kasie West because I’ve been on a contemporary romance kick after reading Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson, and I desperately needed another dose of cuteness. By Your Side totally delivered, of course. This is only the second book I’ve read by Kasie West, the first being The Distance Between Us, and now I’m eager to read more of her books. Reading By Your Side immediately after reading Since You’ve Been Gone… Read more »

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

4 Stars, Reviews 2

It took me several weeks months to read This Savage Song because of college and homework and it’s like 400 pages long, but FINALLY I finished this book and then realized that the sequel doesn’t get released until June. UGH. I need to know how the story continues! I NEED to know what happens to Kate and August! LIKE NOW. Anyway… please ignore my impatience. Yeah. I was WAY off. It is about music, but it’s about monsters who use music to eat people’s souls…. Read more »

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

4 Stars, Reviews 1

I never wanted to get into Twilight. The Twilight series was one of the most popular books/movies during my middle school career. For that reason alone, I refused to go near any of them. That didn’t last long. After Breaking Dawn Part One was released in theaters, I decided to give them all a shot. My thoughts were jumbled. I was uncomfortable with Edward and Bella’s relationship, but I loved them anyways. They are  honestly, to this day, one my… Read more »

Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe

Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe

4 Stars, Reviews 4

My Review ♥ I didn’t expect to like A List of Cages quite as much as I did, but I really enjoyed it and all the emotions it induced. Adam and Julian have the kind of mentor/friend relationship that most people long for. Adam is a senior in high school who takes Julian, a quiet fourteen year old, under his wing. Adam was previously partnered with Julian in elementary school as reading buddies, and when Julian startes seeing (or ditching,… Read more »

Review: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

Review: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

4 Stars, Reviews 5

We Are Still Tornadoes is about two childhood and high school best friends, Cath and Scott, and it is absolutely adorable! No, really. This book was SO CUTE. Ugh. Just… ALL OF THE RELATIONSHIPS! They were so good and authentic. Not just the romantic kind, but those too. We Are Still Tornadoes, written through a correspondence of letters between Cath and Scott, manages to capture the heart of every relationship they’ve both ever experienced, whether with each other, with their family members,… Read more »

Review: My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

Review: My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

Okay, so I downloaded this book as an e-ARC from Netgalley last year. LAST YEAR. And then I got busy and life happened, but I’ve been meaning to catch up on all my ARC’s, even if they’re ridiculously late. So here goes. Also, receiving this book from the publisher through Netgalley does not influence my opinion or my review, I promise. I LIKED THIS BOOK. Which was a relief after pretty much hating Maybe Someday. But for the first time… Read more »

Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

4 Stars, Reviews 2

Mosquitoland was… something.  Possible spoilers ahead, read with caution. I mean, for the first half of the book I had NO IDEA WHAT WAS HAPPENING. This girl, Mim, overheard her father and stepmom talking to her principal and then decides to steal money from her stepmom and travel across the country to Ohio to visit her sick mother (except we don’t actually know what’s wrong with her). She just RUNS AWAY. Doesn’t ask any questions or anything. NOPE. Running away is… Read more »
