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 »

The Scar Boys is about a boy named Harry who is telling his story through an essay for his college application. He wants them to know who he really is, and doesn’t think 250 words is enough to convey himself. His story starts with when he was almost struck by lightning, which resulted in some severe injuries that leave him covered in scars. Harry’s story is full of woe, with his surgeries and counseling, and the bullies at school who seem… Read more »

Review: Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

Review: Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

4 Stars, Reviews 0

I went through a phase a few years ago where all I read was Sarah Dessen. I’ve read every single one of her books, except This Lullaby which I purchased the audio book of, but somehow lost it… but that’s another story. Point is, I was addicted to reading all things by Dessen, so of course, I read Lock and Key with huge expectations. I wasn’t disappointed. The main thing I love about Sarah Dessen’s books are the characters. They’re… Read more »

Review: The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

Review: The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

This book was frustrating. Honestly, the way it was written bothered me to no extent. I don’t know if I was just being picky, but I was constantly irritated by the long descriptions of her morning routine, or how she spent the rest of her uneventful day. It seemed like there were so many filler scenes like this where nothing was really happening, but yet, there were long paragraphs about this nothingness. As for the plot, some parts were SUCH… Read more »

Review: The Moon and More – Sarah Dessen

Review: The Moon and More – Sarah Dessen

4 Stars, Reviews 0

I really liked the plot, the story, the voice, but I had a really hard time taking to the characters, aside from Emaline, who I only started to like towards the end. It’s not that I thought they were bad characters, because they weren’t. They were great, as are most, if not all, of Sarah Dessen’s characters, but I found it hard to relate to any of them. I found myself against most of their choices, actions, etc. Other than… Read more »

Review: Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green & David Levithan

Review: Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green & David Levithan

4 Stars, Reviews 7

Well, before this review, I never realized how hard and confusing it was to write about, even just in the form a review, two characters with the same name. So, props to David Levithan and John Green 😀 Will Grayson meets Will Grayson in a porn shop, of all places, and suddenly, both of their lives are changing, and it’s all because of one person: Tiny Cooper. Tiny is Will Grayson’s best friend, and OWG’s (other Will Grayson) boyfriend, but… Read more »

Review: An Abundance of Katherines – John Green

3 Stars, Reviews 0

Of all the John Green books I’ve read (which is close to all of them lately) this is probably my least favorite. Colin is (or was) a child prodigy who desperately wants to be a genius- he wants fame and recognition, but instead he gets dumped, for the nineteenth time, by a girl named Katherine (and so you get the title) and thus becomes depressed. Then his best friend, Hassan, decides it’s time for a road trip that leads them… Read more »

Sooo, I haven’t posted in a while. I have no excuse (I actually have many but honestly, they’re pathetic and I should be ashamed of neglecting this blog) but I am back (for real this time) and while I haven’t been reviewing, I have been reading, so I have some catching up to do. Anyhow, here’s my review of Eleanor & Park:   I’ve been dying to read this book since I first read about in a review a few… Read more »

Review: Looking For Alaska – John Green

5 Stars, Reviews 0

So, if you read my blog regularly, you probably know that I absolutely love John Green’s books! So, of course, I loved Looking For Alaska! Miles (Pudge) decides to go to Culver Creek Boarding School in search of his “Great Perhaps”, but instead he meets the Colonel, Alaska, Takumi, and Lara. Four friends that will change his life, but mostly Alaska. Alaska is wild, moody, and beautiful, and she has secrets that keep her a mystery. As you read, you’re… Read more »
