Dragons FTW!

It never fails that if I am super excited about reading a book that everyone loves, and then I finally read it like 2 years later, I will probably not be getting what I expected. Yet, I still haven’t learned to give up hope. I relentlessly crave...

Beautiful! Mermaid Lore!

You know that book. The one you want to soak up, but savor at the same time. The one that you could finish in hours, but you stretch it out over a few days. Memorizing quotes and making note of the moments that made you smile. ...

Moonshine!

“That’s the thing about Dale. You are what you are, what everyone thinks you are. Forever.” This book, hands down, absolutely represents what it is like to be from a small town. (Especially a small town in the South). And that’s why I related...

An adrenaline rush set in Dystopian space!

Take Need for Speed. Throw in some Elysium space business. Add a dash of tough girl meets secretive boy. A little bit of a three-wheeling best friend with his heart on his sleeve. A hint of Mario Kart in a dystopian world. A heaping serving...

Real.

There is a lot going on in this book. A lot of real life problems we face. A lot of real people we may come across. A few things I may not agree with, but doesn’t make it any less real. A Sense of...

I owe a lot to this book.

This is it. This is one of the books that got me into reading in my late teens. I really couldn't have asked for a better starting point. It started my love for Sarah Dessen. Major author crush. ...

A cute, classic story!

It has been raining for like 3 days here and I’ve had the absolute pleasure of doing nothing else but read. And when you get a quick, easy read like this, it’s the perfect match for a rainy day. Trouble from the Start is a sweet book...

A non-dystopian, dystopia!

The Memory Key is unlike anything I’ve read before. It is a Dystopian, but it doesn’t feel like a dystopia. It’s as if it could be happening in your town, with your family and friends. As much as it is science fiction, it’s equally...

Zombies and other cool stuff in creepy Nola!

I have heard great, amazing, wonderful things about Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. I just never got around to picking one up. Then, one of my friend's nephews thrust a stack of books at me one day while I was over visiting, and Infinity was piled on top. So,...

New Peculiar's!

I like the first book. Just liked. It wasn’t mind blowing or incredibly creepy. It was exaggeratedly descriptive in a beautiful way (which meant that I was constantly re-reading paragraphs). Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was interesting enough that I read it fairly fast and...

All the feels! Again!

Usually I don't find it necessary to do an entire book from another characters perspective, but this was much appreciated. I knew what was coming. I've read Hopeless. Yet still, the big reveal hit me just as hard as if I...

Okay ending to a good series.

Why didn't I like this one as much as the first? Same with the second one, I suppose. It was all a huge buildup to nothing. Although I do love Aaron Warner. and Kenji. And the writing finally wasn't annoying....

Coutney Summers does zombies...

In the only way she could...heartbreaking and emotional. I finished reading this right before the season premier of the second half of the 5th season of Walking Dead. Which, if you saw it, was freaken horribly amazing and terribly sad. I love zombie anything,...

EPILOGUE OF DREAMS.

Firstly, I found this book much slower than the first 2. Also, some of it was so cliche and juvenile, that I didn't wanna finish reading it. But I'm oh so glad I did. Because it picked up about half way through and didn't stop. AND THEN...

Worth the wait!

I'm always the person who anticipates a book that every one else already loves and then end up hating it. Honestly, I was prepared for that exact moment going into Shatter Me. It's been a few years since it was released and I'd had it on my to-read list...
