Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

OH BOY. So I really didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. The plot was definitely what caught my attention because the main characters meet online and then become romantically involved. That’s not a spoiler, I promise. But then the blurb on the back also had some cheesy and predictable lines about Bailey having an archnemesis who just happens to be “irritatingly hot”and whoops surprise they fall in love. Yeah… totally seen that line before and totally read… Read more »

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

4 Stars, Reviews 2

Caraval has gotten a lot of hype since it’s release. Which is maybe  why I’m struggling to write this review. First, let me say that I absolutely loved reading this book. It kept me captivated until the last page and left me wanting more! However, I also feel a little let down in some ways. Plot ♥ The plot of Caraval is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. Which could possibly be due to the fact that I don’t often read fantasy,… Read more »

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

The Infinite Sea wasn’t quite as good as The 5th Wave. Although I thoroughly enjoyed The Infinite Sea, I was really hoping to have the same reading experience that I had with the first book. Both followed a similar pattern in the plot, so it wasn’t like the sequel was off topic or anything. BUT, when I read the first book I stayed up all night long reading. I finished it in one sitting. So I was a bit disappointed when I wasn’t as… Read more »

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

4 Stars, Reviews 10

Hola! I found Before I Go to Sleep to be quite intriguing. I knew the experience would be different, with it being the first adult novel I’ve ever read. It definitely suits me recently turning 20 (woop woop). To put it in the simplest of terms, it was good. I won’t go as far as to say that it was amazing, but I definitely did enjoy myself. I guess that’s all that really matters, right? Alright, gotta do a little background… Read more »

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

4 Stars, Reviews 6

I started reading By Your Side by Kasie West because I’ve been on a contemporary romance kick after reading Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson, and I desperately needed another dose of cuteness. By Your Side totally delivered, of course. This is only the second book I’ve read by Kasie West, the first being The Distance Between Us, and now I’m eager to read more of her books. Reading By Your Side immediately after reading Since You’ve Been Gone… Read more »

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

4 Stars, Reviews 2

It took me several weeks months to read This Savage Song because of college and homework and it’s like 400 pages long, but FINALLY I finished this book and then realized that the sequel doesn’t get released until June. UGH. I need to know how the story continues! I NEED to know what happens to Kate and August! LIKE NOW. Anyway… please ignore my impatience. Yeah. I was WAY off. It is about music, but it’s about monsters who use music to eat people’s souls…. Read more »

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

4 Stars, Reviews 1

I never wanted to get into Twilight. The Twilight series was one of the most popular books/movies during my middle school career. For that reason alone, I refused to go near any of them. That didn’t last long. After Breaking Dawn Part One was released in theaters, I decided to give them all a shot. My thoughts were jumbled. I was uncomfortable with Edward and Bella’s relationship, but I loved them anyways. They are  honestly, to this day, one my… Read more »

Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold

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 »

Review: MARY: The Summoning by Hillary Monahan

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 »

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 »
