Review: Split Second by Kasie West

Review: Split Second by Kasie West

I thoroughly enjoyed diving back into this world! It’s a cute fluffy read with the perfect dose of paranormal. It was cool to see things from Laila’s point of view as well as Addie’s. I loved the banter between Laila and Connor! They clearly had chemistry, but fought it tooth and nail, which made it even better when the inevitable finally happened. There were some scenes where I wanted to yell, “JUST KISS, ALREADY!” because the tension between them was […]

Audiobook Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Audiobook Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

So, I finally read this book. Took me long enough, eh? It didn’t really blow me away, but I did really enjoy it. I must admit that this book is very difficult to review as I don’t have much to say other than it was beautiful and heartbreaking! John Green’s writing style is epic. He makes even the most mundane things seem interesting, and that was what made me enjoy this so much. There was hardly anything going on for […]

Review: If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch

Review: If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch

I’d heard very good things about this book, but didn’t really look twice at it until C.J. Redwine recommended it at her book signing. I thought for sure it was going to be a tear-jerker, and something I could find that could compare to Before I Fall, but for some reason it just didn’t work for me. Don’t get me wrong, it was a fabulous story. But I couldn’t connect like I’d hoped. I think my main issue was that […]

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 […]
