Review: Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James

Review: Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James

I’m not exactly sure, even as I’m typing, how to go about writing this review. Even after finishing this book I don’t quite know how I feel about it. Do I love it? Hate it? I suppose I’m sort of on the fence on this one. I’m hovering somewhere in between the black and white…in the Grey. Ha – see what I did there? *ahem* But seriously. First of all, this was my very first erotica. Sure, I’ve read books with […]

Review: Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

Review: Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

I adore love/hate romance stories. I really do. I loved this book! Not quite as much as I loved Perfect Chemistry, but it was still awesome! Elkeles has a great talent for creating realistic characters. The POV switched back and forth, so as the reader I was able to get to know both Carlos and Kiara in depth. There was a clear change in voices and they had their own individual personalities. It was easy to tell where one person ended […]

Review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

Review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies (other than The Lion King, of course), so naturally I enjoyed this book and I recommend it to any other fans of the Disney movie. It doesn’t quite live up to the original, but it was a cute and quick read! The way Kyle acted in the beginning made me sick. He is under the impression that ‘ugly’ people are worthless and that the so-called beautiful people are the […]

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

I was not a wolf, but I wasn’t Sam yet, either. I was a leaking womb bulging with the promise of conscious thoughts: the frozen woods far behind me, the girl on the tire swing, the sound of fingers on metal strings. The future and the past, both the same, snow and then summer and then snow again. A shattered spider’s web of many colors, cracked in ice, immeasurably sad. “Sam,” the girl said, “Sam.” She was past present future. […]

Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Sigh. I feel like it makes me a leper for saying this, but I wasn’t impressed with this one. Let me just say right now, I absolutely LOVED Obsidian. It’s on my favorites shelf. So, I was quite dismayed when this one just didn’t cut it for me. My main issue is that I’m so ridiculously sick of “immediate connections.” There’s no such thing as love at first sight; that’s called LUST people!! Ugh. The use of the L word […]

Review: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

Review: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

AHHHH!!! This book was incredible. This one is a new favorite for me! Why oh why did I wait so frickin’ long to read it?! It’s been sitting on my shelf for months…if not over a year. I was really missing out! I’m going to start with Alex. Oh, Alex! I’m totally in love with Alex! *fans self* He was amazing. A few times I kinda wanted to slap him because he acted like such a buttface, but overall he […]
