Review: The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

Review: The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

I’d say I was disappointed, but to be honest I didn’t go into this one with very high hopes. Then why the crap did you even read it, you ask? Well, I thought to broaden my reading horizons. Brilliant idea, Geo. *sarcasm* I think the issue here is that this book just wasn’t for me. I love music, yes, but all of the bands mentioned in this book were either ones I hadn’t heard, or just plain hadn’t heard of. […]

Review: Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Review: Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Let’s start with a story, shall we? When I was around page 80 or so, I had a desperate urge to play Black Ops II (my current gaming addiction). After a brief argument with myself, I promised myself that if I made it to page 150  (because after all, what is a good relationship without compromise?), I could be rewarded with some beloved Domination and murder. What I didn’t expect was that an hour later I would so engrossed in this book […]

Review: One Moment by Kristina McBride

Review: One Moment by Kristina McBride

As far as contemporaries go, One Moment was pretty solid. I didn’t connect quite as much as I wanted to, which is mostly what kept it from being 5 stars. I can’t pinpoint what exactly caused the disconnect – One Moment was a beautifully written story about letting go and moving on. But because it was so tragic, I feel like there should have been a little more emotion on my part. I didn’t cry once, and the only time I felt […]

Review: Survive by Alex Morel

Review: Survive by Alex Morel

I’m lost. I’m going to die. On this godforsaken mountain, I’m going to die. Well, isn’t that what I wanted? There’s no easy answer on my lips or in my mind. Is it what I wanted? Is it? This book was good, not great, but was a quick and easy read. There wasn’t a lot of depth to it, though, despite the tough issues involved. The fact that it was so short kept things flowing at a decent pace, so […]

[Blog Tour] Review: Never Say Never by Kailin Gow

[Blog Tour] Review: Never Say Never by Kailin Gow

This book contains sexual content and is suitable for mature readers only.   I’ve been wanting to read Kailin’s books for a while, so when I saw the tour I jumped on it. I wasn’t overly impressed with Never Say Never, but it was a light and cute read. I would definitely try out more of Kailin’s work in the future. This one was short as you can see, so it was easy to get through. However, due to the […]

Review: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

Review: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

Fans of Perfect Chemistry will love this one! I know I’m really into a book if it can make me cry, and this one did several times. It also made me laugh frequently, which earns even more bonus points. Noah and Echo were both beautifully flawed. They had both been through a lot for being so young, and had the scars to prove it. I love how at the start, things seem very black and white in their lives, and […]
