Review: This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

After having read all of Sarah Dessen’s books, thinking back on them, This Lullaby was different. Remy, our main character, was bold and daring which contrasts a bit with the usual protagonist we see in Dessen’s work. At first, I thought that maybe I was just overthinking the differences since it’s been awhile since I’ve read her other works, but while skimming her website, Sarah says … Continue reading Review: This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Okay, so before writing this review, I spent an hour googling and obsessing over Sherman Alexie. As I mentioned in my last post, I was introduced to this book by my English professor who showed my class an interview of Alexie, which I enjoyed and you should definitely check it out if you can, and then recommended I read this book as an introduction to … Continue reading Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

[alert]Sorry for this sucky review- I got busy and put off writing it for a week and half and struggled to recall pretty much anything! But I still enjoyed the book, so felt like I should say something about it![/alert] plot The Distance Between Us was funny, sweet, and somewhat emotional. Caymen Meyers lives day to day working in her mother’s Doll Store because they can’t … Continue reading Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

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

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: … Continue reading Review: Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green & David Levithan

The Universe Versus Alex Woods

Review: The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence

Alex is bizarre, to put it simply. At the age of ten, he was struck in the head by a meteorite, bringing on a few health conditions, such as epilepsy. Despite his bizarre-ness, Alex is a lovable and geeky character who will make you laugh and cry. When Alex inadvertently ends up in Mr. Peterson’s greenhouse, he is forced to pay off the damage by … Continue reading Review: The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence

Review: Damned – Chuck Palahniuk

This book was a riot! Constantly spouting hilarious yet intelligent remarks that will keep you flipping the pages! “The only thing that makes earth feel like Hell, or Hell feel like Hell, is our expectation that it ought to feel like Heaven. Earth is earth. Dead is dead.” (Damned, page 247.) I found Palahniuk’s vision of Hell completely obscene and disgusting, but also very perfect … Continue reading Review: Damned – Chuck Palahniuk
