Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

4 Stars, Reviews 0

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 »

Wattpad Review and Interview – “Bed Warmer” by ComentsofMind

Wattpad Review and Interview – “Bed Warmer” by ComentsofMind

Reviews, Wattpad 3

In the three years I’ve been on Wattpad, the site has gained millions of members, reinvented its layout, and continues to have a flourishing community across the globe. With all the works Wattpad has to offer, however, it can be difficult to sift through columns of stories and find a good, original read. “Bed Warmer” kind of snuck up on me. I probably found it browsing someone’s profile, and while I’m not usually a fan of “noun/definition” summaries, this one… Read more »

It Started with Goodbye is CUTE! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I love that its a modern take on the Cinderella fairy tale. However, I felt like it was lacking a bit in terms of depth. Don’t get me wrong, this is a wonderful story that has a some awesome characters. WHO HAVE FUN HOBBIES. AND A CUTE SHIP. I just kept expecting there to be some greater level of meaning at some point, but there wasn’t. That’s okay, though…. Read more »

Review: Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Review: Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

5 Stars, Reviews 4

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour made me want to go on a road trip so much! This is the kind of road trip book I’ve been looking for! Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour started off a bit slow. Since the first few pages are kind of like an info dump, it took me longer to become invested in the story. Right from the start, it’s pretty clear that something tragic has happened to Amy, but the details are unclear. Soon though, we… Read more »

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: 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: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Stars, Reviews 4

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 »

4 Stars, Reviews 5

We Are Still Tornadoes is about two childhood and high school best friends, Cath and Scott, and it is absolutely adorable! No, really. This book was SO CUTE. Ugh. Just… ALL OF THE RELATIONSHIPS! They were so good and authentic. Not just the romantic kind, but those too. We Are Still Tornadoes, written through a correspondence of letters between Cath and Scott, manages to capture the heart of every relationship they’ve both ever experienced, whether with each other, with their family members,… Read more »
