Brass shows the true dynamic of mother/daughter relationships Brass has two narratives that alternate with each chapter: one belongs to Elsie and the other focuses on her daughter, Luljeta, 17 years later.

Review: The Legacy by Melissa Delport *Blog Tour + Interview*

[alert]Note: I’m returning to my old reviewing style, because it seems to keep me more on track and less spazzy (because I am a total spaz).[/alert] Oh gosh! This book was AMAZING. It met all my expectations and more. I feel like I was in the perfect mood for a good dystopia when I started reading it, which makes it all the better, however I … Continue reading Review: The Legacy by Melissa Delport *Blog Tour + Interview*

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

I think that gif properly sums up my feelings for this book- for this series. Honestly, though, what’s not to love about The Lunar Chronicles?

If you haven’t read Cinder or … Continue reading Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

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. Rudolph

Review: Consoling Angel by Denise Alicea

My Thoughts This was a very short read, with only about twenty pages, so there wasn’t a lot of room for character development, which would have been fine, had the story been more interesting. The plot, the characters, the whole time-travelling back in time to meet James Dean storyline was great, and I feel like this would have been a book I’d have really enjoyed, … Continue reading Review: Consoling Angel by Denise Alicea

Review: The Unwritten Rule – Elizabeth Scott

I will be hosting Heartbeat’s Promo Blitz this Friday.) My Thoughts There’s quite a bit about this book that I didn’t like. But don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy reading it. … Continue reading Review: The Unwritten Rule – Elizabeth Scott
