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 […]

Like many other reviewers have said, this book wasn’t nearly as good as Dark and Shallow Lies (which had a fantastic atmosphere, btw). But still, it was a decent read. I liked the summer camp setting and the fact that it was on the ocean. The pacing was rather slow for most of the book, but the little snippets we got here and there were enough to keep me interested. The audiobook narrator was pretty good, which also helped with […]

I have no idea how to rate this because I still can’t decide if I loved it or hated it?? I vacillated pretty wildly back and forth at various points of the story. The beginning was rougghhhh. I almost DNFed this book because the first 20% is PAINFULLY, in-your-face high school. Almost like it was trying wayyy too hard to feel like high school. To the point that it was nauseating. It was shallow and juvenile, and I was starting to wonder […]

I just. Wow. I wish I could pretend that the entire ass last half of this book did not exist. I think this has been the most disappointing finale of a series that I’ve ever read, to be completely honest. It took a HARD turn in the middle of the book and completely lost me, and I was so frustrated that I almost DNFed it. I still wish I had, sadly. It’s a shame, really. This series has been phenomenal […]

These audiobooks are FANTASTIC! One of my fave narrations out there. Not to mention this story was insanely engrossing and kept me on the edge of my seat! It’s one of those that you think about when you’re not reading (listening) and can’t wait to get back to. I usually only listen at work, and I found myself making excuses to listen at home, too! So good! It was very interesting to see this story unravel as Pip got little […]
