Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

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: Links by Lisa Becker

Review: Links by Lisa Becker

3 Stars, Reviews 0

Warning: There will be spoilers!! Also: I’ll probably ramble a lot!! I was really excited to read Links after seeing the blurb. Lisa Becker did a good job of pulling me in by writing about my guilty pleasure: second chance romances. I’ve recently had an itch for mysteries and crime novels, but Lisa Becker delivered a book that was easy to read and didn’t require too much processing between chapters. A couple times, I found myself wishing there were more areas that… Read more »

Review: Little Forevers by Katie Kaleski

Review: Little Forevers by Katie Kaleski

Little Forevers was a let down for me. First, I must mention that I read an Advanced Reader Copy of the book, so there were still edits to be made to the version I read before it would be released. That means the final version could be better than my copy. But even so, I think this book was poorly edited and that the writing was not up to my expectations. Despite that, I still enjoyed the plot, characters, romance,… 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

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 CometsofMind

Wattpad Review and Interview – “Bed Warmer” by CometsofMind

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 »
