Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Please Ignore Vera Dietz was a book that really hit home. Alcoholism, drugs, abuse, absentee parents… I could go on. If I wasn’t crying for the characters, I was relating to them, and with this book, and A.S. King’s writing, it was like I was apart of the book. Like I was living in Vera’s world instead of my own, but I wasn’t, because our world’s are the same. “Is … Continue reading Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Review: Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

When I found out Second Star was a retelling of Peter Pan, I was so excited! Of all the Disney movies, Peter Pan was among my top favorites. I expected SO much from this book, maybe a bit unrealistically. However, I was not disappointed. Second Star may be a retelling of Peter Pan, but it’s unique and different from what you would probably expect. Wendy, … Continue reading Review: Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

Review: The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney

**This review may contain spoilers!** I was so excited to read this book when I first heard of it on twitter, but of course, me being me, it took months before I ended up with  a copy (as a gift for Christmas from my mom), and even another month before I actually started reading it. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations and the premise … Continue reading Review: The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney

Review: The Pretenders by Lisi Harrison

the plot The foreword starts off great, and made me eager to read on, but I was quickly disappointed. The foreword set me up to expect a more dramatic story about five journals that get leaked for the school to read, and I assumed we’d be reading a story about how people reacted to the leaked journals, along with the journals themselves, but all we … Continue reading Review: The Pretenders by Lisi Harrison

Review: Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott

I didn’t like this book as much as I liked Bloom or Something, Maybe, but it was okay. I did like it. Kate was a character you can understand, but don’t always like. She seemed a bit… shallow? Her relationship with Will wasn’t all that much of a relationship. It seemed more like a fling, but not. If that makes any sense. I just felt … Continue reading Review: Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott

Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins

My Review This book is dark, scary, and very, very disturbing, but all that is hidden in beautiful words and a story that is so gripping that it makes it worth reading. If you prefer happy books with cute characters that have bubbly personalities and their biggest problem in life is who they’re going to date, then this book probably isn’t for you. However, if … Continue reading Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins

Review: Now That I’m Stronger by Valina R. Rudolph

My Thoughts I was a little skeptical when I started reading Now That I’m Stronger because it starts off slow, with Brianna in a completely sheltered version of herself that we see towards the end of the book. This book opens with Brianna thinking her father is innocent of the crimes he’s been accused of, but she’s not just thinking it, she feels as if … Continue reading Review: Now That I’m Stronger by Valina R.
