Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

I’m not really sure what I was expecting with this book, honestly. I was a bit worried about it being Middle Grade, since I’ve never read MG before and I was afraid it’d be too sophomoric for me. But true to Tahereh’s writing, it was quite beautiful! The only thing really MG about this book is the characters’ ages and disposition. It wasn’t as flowery as her usual prose, but it was still on a higher level of writing than […]

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 […]

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: 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: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

This one just didn’t do it for me like If I Stay did. Sadly, I found myself disappointed. The characters and setting were real enough, I just couldn’t make the connection like I did in the first book. There didn’t really seem to be much happening plot-wise at all and I got bored frequently. Other than that, I don’t really know what it was. There were some things I liked, such as the lyrics at the start of a new […]

Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Dying is easy. Living is hard. This book didn’t waste any time getting to the point. A few pages in I was already glued to the story, hand over my mouth in horror and shock. After the accident, Mia is left with the ultimate question – live with the pain or take the easy way out in death? I loved Mia’s family and friends. Like me, Mia has an awesome family (okay, so my parents didn’t get married in leather […]
