Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers | Blog Tour

[Content warning: This book has themes of sexual assault, violence, drug addiction, and child abuse.] The synopsis for this book is spot on. Sadie is a book that will hold your attention until the last page and then leave you hanging onto Sadie and Mattie’s story, feeling completely wrecked.

Review: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Turtles All the Way Down was surprisingly refreshing. I say ‘surprisingly’ because it deals with heavy topics, like mental illness and loss of loved ones. So I expected this book to be much sadder and emotional. That’s not to say it wasn’t emotional, because it totally was, but in an uplifting and refreshing way. It left me feeling hopeful. Aza is incredible and I adored her… Aza, … Continue reading Review: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Hola! I found Before I Go to Sleep to be quite intriguing. I knew the experience would be different, with it being the first adult novel I’ve ever read. It definitely suits me recently turning 20 (woop woop). To put it in the simplest of terms, it was good. I won’t go as far as to say that it was amazing, but I definitely did enjoy … Continue reading Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Review: MARY: The Summoning by Hillary Monahan

In an odd coincidence I ended up reading this book in bed while, across the room, Caylin was watching the Bloody Mary episode of Supernatural… and yet I was the only one who ended up having a nightmare three hours later. Go figure. Which leads to the obvious statement that this book is terrifying! Not only did I have nightmares, but I was freaked out for several … Continue reading Review: MARY: The Summoning by Hillary Monahan

Review: Owlet by Emma Michaels

the plot Owlet started off with a very mysterious tone that made you curious to learn more about Iris’ world, which kept me flipping the pages, anxious to figure out what was happening which is usually a good thing… except for the most part, I stayed very confused and curious. Iris is apart of a secret society, The Society of Feathers or the Eyrie/Stryx (I … Continue reading Review: Owlet by Emma Michaels

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

Misplaced

DNF Review: Misplaced by Lee Murray

I just couldn’t get into this book. The writing didn’t appeal to me, really. It wasn’t bad exactly, but it didn’t hold my attention. I would start reading it and my mind would wander and then I wouldn’t feel like reading. My attention span wasn’t really my only problem, though. I wasn’t engaged by the dialogue. It didn’t feel authentic, and that might just be … Continue reading DNF Review: Misplaced by Lee Murray
