Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

5 Stars, Reviews 3

Since You’ve Been Gone is SO FREAKING CUTE! Honestly, this book is a perfect summer read! This is the first book I’ve read by Morgan Matson, but I assure you I just ordered another one of her books on Amazon five seconds ago. (The Unexpected Everything, in case you’re curious.) Since You’ve Been Gone starts off with our main character, Emily, figuring out that her best friend, Sloane, has gone missing (thus the title), but finds a list of thirteen challenges that Sloane has… Read more »

Review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Stars, Reviews 5

My Review ♥ Jennifer Niven HAS to be one of my new favorite authors. I’m actually pretty sure that I said this, or at least thought this, after reading All the Bright Places, but it is absolutely true now that I’ve read two of her books and completely adored them. After reading AtBP, I expected this book to be SAD, and there were definitely sad aspects of this book and tragic stuff, but overall, Holding Up the Universe has a super… Read more »

Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

5 Stars, Reviews 4

First of all, I apologize for any and all spoilers. It was unavoidable. Second, I also apologize for the excessive use of gifs in this post. I got excited. I couldn’t help myself. Third, Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! This is book was perfection and I don’t know what to do with my life now that I’ve finished it and there’s no more books (except prequels/etc its not the same *cries*)! Someone send help. Cress left us with so many loose ends, and I was genuinely concerned… Read more »

Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

5 Stars, Reviews 2

Okay, so before writing this review, I spent an hour googling and obsessing over Sherman Alexie. As I mentioned in my last post, I was introduced to this book by my English professor who showed my class an interview of Alexie, which I enjoyed and you should definitely check it out if you can, and then recommended I read this book as an introduction to Alexie’s work. So I did, and I absolutely loved it… and it resulted in me… Read more »

Review: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

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 »

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 »
