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: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

5 Stars, Reviews 6

I don’t know if any of you guys know this, but I have a very big dream to one day go on a road trip. And I don’t mean the kind with your parents and your annoying siblings where the entire trip is family orientated and planned down to the very last detail. Don’t get me wrong, I love those kind too, but I want to go on a road trip alone or with friends where it’s spontaneous and adventurous and just… focused on… Read more »

Hi guys! This will be my first book review on here, and I am uber thrilled to share it all with you because, 1. Hooray for firsts and, 2. This is one of my favorite books, along with the sequel! 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: 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: 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 »

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 »
