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: 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: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

I think everyone knows by now how much I hate historical. I went into this expecting a fantasy. I knew it had a historical aspect, but I didn’t think it would be overpowering. Let me repeat: I thought this was a fantasy. It is NOT a fantasy. In fact, there’s really nothing fantasy about this book at all aside from Leah’s ability to witch gold. This is a historical all the way. But, surprisingly, that didn’t ruin it for me. […]

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

I’ve been hearing wonderful things about this book for some time now (especially from Nova!), but I’ve been hesitant to pick it up because I wasn’t sure it was going to be a “me” book. As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised! I absolutely loved the message this book had going for it. I love that Elise was sort of lost and alone, and in finding music she found herself. She also found herself without the aid of a guy. This […]

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 […]
