Blog Tour Review: Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers

Blog Tour Review: Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers

4 Stars, Blog Tour, Reviews 0

my review Truest is a book that will tug at your heart in many ways: there’s an adorable romance, a tragic accident, some complicated family situations, and fortunately, lots of humor to help us through the emotions. Westlin is a small town girl, and she seems to really love it. She has a fabulous boyfriend, a well respected family and father, and a small but close group of friends. She’s pretty content with life, even if she has no clue… Read more »

Review: MARY: The Summoning by Hillary Monahan

Review: MARY: The Summoning by Hillary Monahan

4 Stars, Reviews 6

In an odd coincidence I ended up reading this book in bed while, across the room, Caylin was watching the Bloody Mary episode of Supernatural… and yet I was the only one who ended up having a nightmare three hours later. Go figure. Which leads to the obvious statement that this book is terrifying! Not only did I have nightmares, but I was freaked out for several hours after every time I would read this book. Warning: Do NOT read this at night… Read more »

I apologize in advance if it’s really dumb, and just a fair warning that I may ramble… Okay, so I’ve read so many good and not-so-good reviews on this book, and I feel like I might be repeating some things that many… Read more »

Review: That Was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

Review: That Was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

4 Stars, Reviews 4

**There maybe might be spoilers… it’s kind of hard to discuss this book without spoilers, so… you’ve been warned.** I was expecting this book to be emotional, but mostly I was expecting it to make me sad like The Outsiders did. I guess in a way it did make me sad, but it made me more angry than anything, and incredibly annoyed. “If you have two friends in your lifetime, you’re lucky. If you have one good friend, you’re more than lucky.” Bryon… Read more »

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

4 Stars, Reviews 20

plot Anna and the French Kiss was so CUTE. It was adorable and I couldn’t hold back my squeals of enjoyment. I’m such a sucker for cutesy romance. The book starts off with Anna being super bummed and annoyed that her father (a cheesy romance writer who just hit big success) was shipping her off to a boarding school in Paris. Anna quickly makes friends, though, and starts to see that maybe Paris isn’t so bad… especially if a little… Read more »

plot A perfect continuation from Ode to the Queen, Gods Save the Princess follows Valentina as she struggles with adapting from the horrors of her mortal life to the glamour of being a Greek Goddess living on Olympus… but things aren’t always glamorous once she’s kidnapped and finds herself stumbling in the Underworld. While the first book in the Grace of Gods series was focused heavily on the characters and had little plot development, Gods Save the Princess fully makes… Read more »

Misdirected is a book about a 15 year old boy, Ben, who moves to a new town where religion is an important aspect of everyone’s life. Ben wasn’t raised in a religious home, and although he attended a religious private school for most of his life, he doesn’t understand why religion is so important to everyone. After being treated like an outcast because of his lack of interest in being a Christian, he discovers he’s Atheist. This causes an even bigger disconnect… Read more »

Review: Rush by Eve Silver

Review: Rush by Eve Silver

4 Stars, Reviews 2

plot Rush was… odd. But I totally fell in love with Miki and Jackson’s relationship, and ended up reading this book in one sitting. Miki Jones first gets pulled while trying to save a girl from being run over and wakes up in a field in the game. That’s when she meets her team, although some of the characters would choose to not use that word to describe them. They then try to hunt and kill aliens who are invading their… Read more »

Review: The Innocent Assassins by Pema Donyo

Review: The Innocent Assassins by Pema Donyo

4 Stars, Reviews 2

plot I was fully intrigued by the idea of teenage assassins, especially in such an organized setting that could easy be compared to a boarding school/workplace. It added an idea of institutionalized murder, which is equally intriguing as it is horrifying. Jane works for Covert Operatives, an organization that ‘rescues’ orphans off the street and gives them a home… the catch? They are trained as professional assassins carrying out the dirty work for greedy people across the world. Except, Lucy isn’t as… Read more »
