Review: The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Review: The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Vincit Omnia Veritas. Truth conquers all. I absolutely adore Kristen Simmons, you guys! I always enjoy everything she writes and this book was no different. Well, it was very different for Kristen, but I enjoyed it all the same! This is her first contemporary – everything else has been sci-fi. And she rocked it! I loved the idea of the book – a school for con artists! It was oh so fun and unlike any other contemp I’ve ever read. Brynn was […]

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I’ve been putting off this book for EVER. And I was worried to pick it up because, let’s face it, the hype is unreal. I don’t read contemp very often, but I do usually like it well enough when I read it. And the same goes for this book. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it didn’t wow me and probably won’t leave a lasting impression. I do see why people love it so much. Cath is a hardcore fangirl […]

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

To be completely honest, I was worried going in that I would be the black sheep again because the hype for this book is U N R E A L. Thankfully, I wasn’t! For once, the hype is 100% justified. This book is so important, so impactful. It really makes you think about the world and how flawed it is. And honestly, this book got under my skin. I didn’t expect to care so much, because I am just not a contemporary […]

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

For being erieso short, I found this one to be rather slow. I was super bored in the beginning, waiting for something to happen. The letters don’t come until quite a long way into the book. While I did enjoy the sense of family that Lara Jean had, I found I didn’t really care about the mundane happenings in her life that took up nearly half of the novel. This is why I don’t really care to read contemp very […]

Review: Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry

Review: Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry

“A heretic is someone who has belief, but not the right kind. At least according to the Catholic Church.” Full disclosure: I would NEVER have picked this book up on my own, ever in a million years. I don’t read contemporary much to begin with, and even though the cover is interesting for a contemp, the fact that it sounds religious would probably have deterred me. But, Harper sent the book to me, and I was in the mood for […]

Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Trigger warning: Abuse To be completely honest, I never would have picked this book up on my own. I’m not a contemporary fan, and I’m even less of a romance fan. But, my good friend Erin highly recommended it – and in the utmost form of bookpushing, sent me a copy. So, I gave it a go – and I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I never thought I’d enjoy it as much as I did. It’s definitely not something I […]
