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 […]

Review: Gambit by C.L. Denault

Review: Gambit by C.L. Denault

I have very mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I loved the idea of it, but on the other, it didn’t really stand out. I found this book to be forgettable. Already the details are slipping away, I’m afraid. What I did love was the idea of the Surge and the skills or abilities that came from them. Very cool! Willow’s ability to manipulate elements was awesome. (Sadly, though, I forget already what her second skill was…) I […]

Review: Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter

Review: Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter

My major issue with this book was with Cole and Ali’s relationship. It was so hot and cold that I got mental whiplash! I mean, the breakup part of it was very realistic. Having just gone through a breakup myself, it made me sick to my stomach to read it, because I knew what Ali was feeling. But sometimes they were so ridiculous I wanted to bash their heads together! I couldn’t see any real reason for the way Cole was acting. […]
