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

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 »

Review: Misdirected by Ali Berman

4 Stars, Reviews 2

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: Owlet by Emma Michaels

Review: Owlet by Emma Michaels

1 Stars, Reviews 2

the plot Owlet started off with a very mysterious tone that made you curious to learn more about Iris’ world, which kept me flipping the pages, anxious to figure out what was happening which is usually a good thing… except for the most part, I stayed very confused and curious. Iris is apart of a secret society, The Society of Feathers or the Eyrie/Stryx (I still haven’t really managed to figure out the difference there, more on that later) but… 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 »

Blog Tour: Review of The Reason I Stay by Patty Maximini

4 Stars, Blog Tour, Reviews 2

the plot The romance was ADORABLE. Although, at some points it felt like it was moving too fast and as if a bit of insta-love was occurring, which I wasn’t a huge fan of. I felt like since the characters start off totally angry at each other that it was a bit weird for them to be getting so close so quickly. Especially since Matt had come across as SUCH a terrible person. Beside that, I loved their relationship and… Read more »
