Review: Croak by Gina Damico

How did I feel about this book? Meh. That about covers it. I couldn’t connect with Lex at all, and I didn’t particularly like her. It seemed like Gina was going for kick-ass heroine, but it didn’t work for Lex. She was unnecessarily violent to the point of being a bully. I didn’t find her ‘cool’ at all, I just felt like she tried to hard. Aside from being a bully, she was childish and selfish. While I did like […]

Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This was the third time I’ve read this one, and it’s still just as amazing as the first time.

Although, after watching 2 trailers and a teaser it sorta already did. I found myself picturing Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson many times over. It’s such an easy read […]

Review: Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

Review: Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

Welcome Caller was bittersweet and touched on some difficult subjects like drug addiction, Parkinson’s, and change, but still managed to stay light and fun. The characters were wonderfully flawed and different in their  own way. I hated Chloe at times, but she grew on me towards the end. She was self-centered and a bit vain, but her wit charmed me and made me giggle quite a few times. In the beginning I kind of just wanted to slap her – […]
