Review: It Started with Goodbye by Christina June

Review: It Started with Goodbye by Christina June

4 Stars, Reviews 2

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

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 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: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

Review: We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen

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 »

Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

1 Stars, DNF, Reviews 1

DNF Review. I could would not finish this book. I was excited to read this because I thought it’d be a fun and dramatic romance that I would love, and I’ve heard good things about Colleen Hoover so I was eager to see what the buzz was about. However, this book was a HUGE disappointment. Even worse, it made me feel all gross and uncomfortable and angry. BLAH. The felt repulsed by the characters and their actions and I WILL RANT… Read more »

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

2 Stars, Reviews 8

Possible spoilers ahead… So, I keep seeing blurbs and descriptions advertising this book as having a “riveting dystopian world,” of being a “thrilling superhero story” (both on the back blurb of my paperback copy) and of being a “dystopian thriller” (on wikipedia)… however, that’s not really accurate. I mean, yeah the world is dystopian, and the main character can kill people by touching them can I please have this power, and mayyybeee that makes it a dystopian thriller. But in my opinion, it… Read more »

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 »
