I’ve noticed that I mostly rate books with 3 or 4 stars. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m both difficult to extremely disappoint and impress when it comes to books, so I just typically dump all books into the 3 or 4 star category. Who knows? Anyway, noticing that made me think about what books I would rate differently now, or if I had read … Continue reading Top 5 Books I Would Rate Differently Today

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.

But you know what I’m sayin’. Book Outlet is an online book store that sells bargain books at greatly discounted prices. Their selection isn’t the most varietal, but they … Continue reading Book Outlet Haul!

It’s not that I thought they were bad characters, because they weren’t. They were great, as are most, if not all, of Sarah Dessen’s characters, but I found it hard to relate to … Continue reading Review: The Moon and More – Sarah Dessen
