My First Time Reading Harry Potter | The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets

First of all: YES, I am just now reading the Harry Potter series for the first time. I’m sure you probably think I’m insane. I honestly can’t figure out the hype surrounding the series yet, but I’m determined to keep reading. Second of all: yes, I think the books are good! Yes, just good… so far. Explanation (a.k.a. why I didn’t read the series earlier): I was … Continue reading My First Time Reading Harry Potter | The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets

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 … Continue reading Review: Little Forevers by Katie Kaleski

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

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 … Continue reading Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

It Started with Goodbye

Review: It Started with Goodbye by Christina June

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 … Continue reading Review: It Started with Goodbye by Christina June

Review: That Was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

**There maybe might be spoilers… it’s kind of hard to discuss this book without spoilers, so… you’ve been warned.** I was expecting this book to be emotional, but mostly I was expecting it to make me sad like The Outsiders did. I guess in a way it did make me sad, but it made me more angry than anything, and incredibly annoyed. “If you have … Continue reading Review: That Was Then, This is Now by S.E. Hinton

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

plot Anna and the French Kiss was so CUTE. It was adorable and I couldn’t hold back my squeals of enjoyment. I’m such a sucker for cutesy romance. The book starts off with Anna being super bummed and annoyed that her father (a cheesy romance writer who just hit big success) was shipping her off to a boarding school in Paris. Anna quickly makes friends, … Continue reading Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Review: Silver by Chris Wooding

Review: Silver by Chris Wooding

the plot When I read the summary, the first word that popped into my mind was “Zombies!” but I was a bit off with that assumption. There are zombie-like creatures, but they’re technically mechanical ‘monsters’ that are infected with a sort of virus. The action starts right away after introducing the characters and I felt like the action was TOO soon, and not very well-done. … Continue reading Review: Silver by Chris Wooding
