Review: My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

Review: My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

4 Stars, Reviews 0

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 »

Every time I find out Sarah Dessen is releasing a new book I freak out and get super excited… but of course these announcements are always wayyy too early and by the time the book is released I forget because clearly my memory is a mess. If you guys remember the giveaway we hosted a few weeks ago, the winner, Anjanette, choose Saint Anything as the prize, and it fortunately reminded me that I also wanted to read this book. (Anjanette,… Read more »

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 »

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 »

Review: Gods Save the Princess by Kyleigh Castronaro

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 »
