Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Trigger warning: Abuse To be completely honest, I never would have picked this book up on my own. I’m not a contemporary fan, and I’m even less of a romance fan. But, my good friend Erin highly recommended it – and in the utmost form of bookpushing, sent me a copy. So, I gave it a go – and I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I never thought I’d enjoy it as much as I did. It’s definitely not something I […]

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I feel very, very alive. It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I read this book, so it’s hard to review it! I’d forgotten a lot of it so I had to skim the book to remember. I did really enjoy it while I was reading though! The story is super cute. “But you know, there’s an upside here. Because when you spend so much time intensely wanting something, and then you actually get the thing? It’s magic.” There’s something […]

ARC Review: Mirage by Somaiya Daud

ARC Review: Mirage by Somaiya Daud

While this one fell flat for me, I strongly believe that this is going to be a favorite for a lot of readers, and a hit fantasy of 2018! The world was beautiful, but the places were really overwhelming for me to keep up with. There was no map (there will be in final copy – something that sucks about reading ARCs) so I had trouble sorting all the places out. I also didn’t understand the conflict between the different […]

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Let me make something perfectly clear: THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A FUCKING ROMANCE. Got it? Good. This is not a book about dragons. In fact, dragons make an appearance exactly three times in this entire book. Yes, three. THREE. IN THREE HUNDRED PAGES. Literally the rest of the book is ooey gooey, in your face, vomit-inducing romance. If you dig romance, you’ll […]

Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

After all, every story has a story. I have NO idea why it took me so long to finally pick this one up! It’s been on my TBR for almost two years now, and I’ve been wanting to read it forever. I guess I was just worried I wouldn’t like it. I shouldn’t have been! This book was engaging and mesmerizing. Renee’s prose is so beautiful! I loved the Arabian Nights/Aladdin feel it had going to it. There’s not very […]

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 […]
