I can't even...

I never wanted to read any of the books to begin with. For some reason, my brother had read the first one and was pushing me to read it. But I refused because it sounded stupid. Then on a cold January night in the...

I didn't hate this.

Now, I have not read this book. I really wanted to get to it before I watched the movie, but I haven't the patience and Netflix sent it to me without warning. So I hunkered down on my bed of pillows and laptop cords, and watched this...

Nothing like my prom.

This movie is cute! I watched it while I was sick and I has skipped class. (I skipped class a lot in college, but this just so happened to be one of the days it was a legit skip). It was something to keep my attention. Something...

Action and Gerard Butler's torso.

You know what drives me to watching certain movies? The actors. I will watch any movie that my favorite actors play in. Even if they are some of the shittiest ones. (I'm looking to you, The Forger. And you too, Josh Hutcherson, for playing in it). ...

Something to stick with you.

In school, you're not expecting to read something so real. You read Romeo and Juliet. And you think that's oh so real because Joe has been looking at you for the past week and it's meant to be. You read through Macbeth and think that's real...

One of my favorites!

This book currently sits on my bookshelf. Next to all my paranormal romance and contemporary thrillers. From Sarah Dessen novels to John Green masterpieces. It was there before all of them and it's the beginning of my reading habit. When I was just a little girl...

Love this!

I've never read any books by the Bronte's, but I have seen the Jane Eyre movie. I also wrote a paper in high school on the enigmatic Emily Bronte, and ever sense then I've always been pulled to this interesting family. Heather and Emily are great characters....

I like this!

Sigh. I did a lot of sighing during this book. Sighing for the unrequited love and for the things I saw coming and didn’t really want to happen. This book got into my head. It burrowed itself deep into my subconscious...

Gorgeous.

I wasn't sure what I was going to be getting myself into once I started reading. I was hoping for something light because the last few books I read were on the heavy side. I wanted something fun. I wanted something that wouldn't keep me up at night worrying about...

The book that changed Angel's for me.

THIS BOOK. This is the book that revolutionized angels for me. The only complaint I have is that I have to wait until God knows when for the next one. Those last couple of chapters nearly gave me a heart attack. Awesome. ...

Interesting.

I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said. It's original. If you aren't comparing it to X-Men. I love supernatural books! I was excited to read it just because it had that very element of weird. ...

Not what I went in expecting

*Definite spoilers ahead. Just a warning.* Oh, boy. Where to begin? I don’t want to be completely rude because the author was nice enough to gift me a copy. And although the writing was great and there were next to no errors...

Running from Romeo

Despise the inconsistences within this book, and there are a ton, the ending (if we're calling it that), was what really made me like this book. Reminding us that not everything is happily ever after. (There is a sequel, but really I don’t mind it ending like this. Maybe I’m...

Great!

One of those books that is not too serious that it stresses you out, but thrilling enough to keep you on the edge of your toes. Adorable. Sweet. Awesome. Ya'll! You know my obsession with ghost stories. I was hooked from line one. ...

Never in my life would I have thought that Peter Pan could be a dick. But for a short time, I really wanted to smack him across the head. This book is gorgeous. Crafted perfectly with the right mix of magic and suspense, I fell in...
