Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

I was kind of bored through most of this book, honestly. The parts where Emily was doing things on the list were fun, but other than that the prose was very…mundane. I’m not a big fan of contemporaries because of the fact that it’s everyday things you’re reading about, and I personally don’t want to read about what someone does in their daily routine. To me, it’s Snoresville. So when I do decide to pick up a contemporary, I need […]

Mini Review: Invaded by Melissa Landers

Mini Review: Invaded by Melissa Landers

Oh how I missed Cara’s snark and Aelyx’s banter! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this world. I really like the L’eihr and their culture! It was awesome to finally see the planet. I found it interesting that Cara and Aelyx were struggling with the same things, despite being on two totally different worlds. Fitting in, being homesick, missing each other. It kinda showed that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I totally loved Aelyx’s cat (cat […]

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: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

I’m going to be honest, I only picked this up to see what all the fuss was about. Not that it didn’t sound interesting, but I probably would have never given this book a second thought based on the cover. After seeing everyone RAVING about it, and even hearing Mindee Arnett mention it at a book signing, I knew I had to get my hands on it. And I did enjoy it. But, I’m afraid the hype might have lessened […]

DNF Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

DNF Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Oh good flippin’ lord. I’m quite proud of myself for making it 65%, honestly. (Keep in mind that this book is FOUR HUNDRED AND NINETY TWO PAGES LONG. Almost five hundred pages of NOTHING.) This book was slow. Painfully so. There was absolutely nothing happening in the entire first half of this book. It was just Lia being a bartender and talking to thinking about the *adopts high-pitched breathy voice* two handsome, swoon-worthy gentlemen that stumbled into the tavern. Seriously. […]

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Took me long enough, right?! I was honestly afraid to read this book because of the hype surrounding it. (Curse being a black sheep.) Thankfully I didn’t hate it like I was afraid I would, but it still didn’t blow me away like I was hoping. Actually, I’m still kind of on the fence about this book. I did really enjoy it while I was reading, but I have some reservations. I love that Stephanie captures that feeling. You know, the […]
