Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I feel very, very alive. It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I read this book, so it’s hard to review it! I’d forgotten a lot of it so I had to skim the book to remember. I did really enjoy it while I was reading though! The story is super cute. “But you know, there’s an upside here. Because when you spend so much time intensely wanting something, and then you actually get the thing? It’s magic.” There’s something […]

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

I am vengeance. I loved Not a Drop to Drink, so I was expecting to like this book even though it’s outside of my genre comfort zone. But I wasn’t expecting for it to blow me away! This book is so raw and realistic. There’s something about Mindy’s writing that perfectly captures the characters and coveys the story. But more than that, this book is pretty heavy. It’s very honest about what it’s like to be a teenager in a way that most […]

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

This was my first Rainbow Rowell book! And I have to say I do see the appeal. This book was pretty adorable! It’s pure fluff, which isn’t something I would typically pick up, but I did enjoy it. It won’t make it to my favorites, and isn’t something that will necessarily stick with me, but it was a cute and fun read. The idea is kind of creepy, but somehow it worked. It was the book version of one of […]

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

I was kind of bored through most of this book, honestly. The parts where Emily was doing things on the list were fun, but other than that the prose was very…mundane. I’m not a big fan of contemporaries because of the fact that it’s everyday things you’re reading about, and I personally don’t want to read about what someone does in their daily routine. To me, it’s Snoresville. So when I do decide to pick up a contemporary, I need […]

Review: The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

Review: The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

I honestly wasn’t even sure I would like this book, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it!! For a girl with such a fat ass, I was practically invisible. I think the main thing that made me like this book is that I connected with Bianca on a very deep level. She was like me in so many ways it was scary! I found her very relatable, which led to me developing a connection to […]

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Took me long enough, right?! I was honestly afraid to read this book because of the hype surrounding it. (Curse being a black sheep.) Thankfully I didn’t hate it like I was afraid I would, but it still didn’t blow me away like I was hoping. Actually, I’m still kind of on the fence about this book. I did really enjoy it while I was reading, but I have some reservations. I love that Stephanie captures that feeling. You know, the […]
