I don’t have all that much to say about this one, other than I enjoyed it! Mindy’s contemporary books are almost always a hit for me, which is funny because I’m not usually a fan of contemporary. Even funnier that her fantasy books usually don’t work for me. Her contemps just knock it out of the park! This one felt so realistic, like the events had actually happened. There isn’t really a whole lot going on plot wise for a […]

This was good, not great. It was a quick read, and fairly entertaining, but it felt kind of juvenile to me. I feel like there was more focus on drama and romance than the puzzles we were promised. All of the boys felt like the exact same person (with extra jerkness to Grayson, maybe) and I was continuously having issues telling them apart. I was also confused about the love triangle (square??) and the fact that every freakin’ dude in […]

Wow. Just wow. I’m gonna preface this review by saying this: I have never had any kind of substance addiction, so I don’t understand the way someone who had fought addiction would. But even still, this book was really powerful. I’ve also discovered a new worst fear after reading this: injury. As in, injury to the point where I lose my mobility. It’s something that able people really take for granted, honestly. I can’t even imagine not being able to […]

The world is not tame. I needed this SO BAD when I picked it up, without even realizing it. Let’s face it, the world sucks right now and shit is rough. This book’s “appreciate what you have because one day you may not have it” message was something I desperately needed right now. Not to mention I’ve been in a horrible reading slump since everything started happening, and with my own personal issues added on top of it all, I […]

Holy crap, WHY did I wait so long to read this?! I’d heard of it, but never really heard ABOUT it. I knew it existed, it was on my Goodreads TBR, but I never really looked twice at it. I recently posted in the Epic Reads Book Club group on Facebook looking for obscure and underrated books and someone suggested this one. I went and looked it up, and: Sentient alien spaceships?! Give me NOW! I went and bought it […]

“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 […]
