Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

THIS BOOK IS SO CUTE. If you haven’t read it, GO READ IT NOW. Seriously. I feel like writing this review is a little bit silly because Simon is so popular and widely known now that the movie—which I can’t wait to watch immediately after writing this review—has been made and released, and I don’t have much to say that everyone hasn’t already said. Anyways, I … Continue reading Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything is the perfect summer read; it’s fluffy, full of funny scenes, and has the best friendships and relationships EVER. This book doesn’t veer too far from Matson’s earlier books, although it’s a lot funnier than I remember her other books being. The main themes in the book are friendship (especially like in Since You’ve Been Gone!) and learning to be happy with life instead … Continue reading Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

turtles all the way down john green cover

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

My First Time Reading Harry Potter | The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets

First of all: YES, I am just now reading the Harry Potter series for the first time. I’m sure you probably think I’m insane. I honestly can’t figure out the hype surrounding the series yet, but I’m determined to keep reading. Second of all: yes, I think the books are good! Yes, just good… so far. Explanation (a.k.a. why I didn’t read the series earlier): I was … Continue reading My First Time Reading Harry Potter | The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets

8 Book Recommendations that Feature Music

I can’t read and listen to music at the same time because I lose focus and get overwhelmed. But I still like to incorporate music into my reading from time to time, whether that’s through listening to book playlists (official or fan-made) or reading books about music or musicians. If you’re passionate about reading and music, then here are five books that feature music in … Continue reading 8 Book Recommendations that Feature Music

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

It took me TWO months to finish reading The Upside of Unrequited (two whole months!). This wasn’t the fault of the book, though, but instead the result of my busy college life. Remember when I said I was absolutely not going to neglect this blog when school started? Well, I am a liar. I did try though! The Upside of Unrequited is adorable. It is a cute and light … Continue reading Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Alex, Approximately

Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

OH BOY. So I really didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. The plot was definitely what caught my attention, because the main characters meet online and become romantically involved. That’s not a spoiler, I promise. But the blurb on the back also had some cheesy and predictable lines about Bailey having an archnemesis who just happens to be “irritatingly hot” and whoops, … Continue reading Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett
