Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

5 Stars, Reviews 2

Ask the Passengers is funny and honest, and an experience I will never forget. While it doesn’t exactly tackle anything new, the style and voice of A.S. King is unique and perfect. Add that to her ability to weave in a bit of magic, and it’s hard to doubt that Ask the Passengers is anything but original. Astrid Jones is struggling. Her family… well, it’s safe to say it sucks, her friends are pushy, and her town is small. Small-minded, mostly,… Read more »

Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

5 Stars, Reviews 5

I started All the Bright Places with the highest expectations possible, and I was not let down. Not even a little bit! Oh gosh, this book was so amazing and brilliant. My heart is still aching from reading it, and I will never, ever get over this book. Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at their high school, both of them concerned with life and death, and struggling with issues they don’t know how get past. Then, Finch… Read more »

Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

5 Stars, Reviews 6

I considered not writing this review since Insurgent (and well, the entire Divergent series) has been so popular and everyone has read it. Or almost everyone. There are so many reviews for Insurgent, I could probably swim in them. But that doesn’t really matter to me anymore. I’m going to review it because I want to review it. So now that that’s been said, I’m going to write a spazzy, excited, gushing review of Insurgent. 😀 DUDE! I can’t believe I waited more than one… Read more »

Blog Tour Review: Shameless by Nina Lemay

Blog Tour Review: Shameless by Nina Lemay

5 Stars, Blog Tour, Reviews 6

the plot Hannah is a student in Montreal who is paying for college by stripping every night at a local club. Honestly, I was a bit wary about where this book was going to go when it started, especially since the book is contemporary romance and it focuses more on the characters and relationships than it does on a specific plot. Which is kind of the point, except Shameless surprised me in the end when unexpected problems arise and put Hannah… Read more »

Review: The Legacy by Melissa Delport *Blog Tour + Interview*

Review: The Legacy by Melissa Delport *Blog Tour + Interview*

5 Stars, Author Interview, Blog Tour, Reviews 3

Oh gosh! This book was AMAZING. It met all my expectations and more. I feel like I was in the perfect mood for a good dystopia when I started reading it, which makes it all the better, however I ended up having to put this book on pause to finish up Beowulf (ugh, homework) and I could not wait to return to Rebecca’s world. That, of course, resulted in me reading Beowulf in one night and then reading three more… Read more »

Review: A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen

Review: A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen

5 Stars, Reviews 6

This book was SO much better than Beowulf. I kinda saw why these two books were on my summer reading homework- they were like total opposites, so I think the point was to see a contrast in time and views. I’m probably wrong but whatever. Anyway, I highly enjoyed this classic! Which is a bit odd to be saying since I can count the classics I’ve enjoyed on one hand. Nora is a housewife and mother who is seemingly perfect…. Read more »

Review: A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Review: A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks

5 Stars, Reviews 2

I remember watching this movie years ago and I loved it. Of course, the movie adaptation is TOTALLY different, but I didn’t know that at the time, so I went to my mom and told her it was on my Christmas wish list. A few weeks later, the day after Christmas, I started reading A Walk to Remember and I was sure it was the wrong book. Only, it wasn’t. It was just very different. The setting is a bit different,… Read more »

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

5 Stars, Reviews 2

The 5th Wave was so good. I haven’t read an Alien book in so long. I’m pretty sure The Host was the last book I read with aliens, but I can’t be sure. I loved everything about this book! I’ve been a bit obsessed with books like this, with something taking over the world (aliens, zombies, monsters, etc) and this just made me even more obsessed! Cassie, Ben, Evan, Sammy, ah they were all so amazing. At first, I was… Read more »

Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

5 Stars, Reviews 7

Please Ignore Vera Dietz was a book that really hit home. Alcoholism, drugs, abuse, absentee parents… I could go on. If I wasn’t crying for the characters, I was relating to them, and with this book, and A.S. King’s writing, it was like I was apart of the book. Like I was living in Vera’s world instead of my own, but I wasn’t, because our world’s are the same. “Is it okay to hate a dead kid? Even if you loved him once? Even if… Read more »

Review: Random by Tom Leveen

Review: Random by Tom Leveen

5 Stars, Reviews 4

First off, let me say that Tom Leveen is a freaking GENIUS! I loved everything about Random… well, except the main character, Tori, but more on that later. Random is about a girl, Tori, who is being blamed, along with six others, for the suicide of a fellow student because of, as Tori liked to call them, a few ‘joking comments’ they made on a social media site. Tori, now isolated from all her so-called friends who were involved in… Read more »
