Love this.

I had to step away from this book for a couple of days just because I felt like something terribly distressing was forthcoming, and I didn’t think I would be ready for it. I related heavily to this book. Who would’ve thought that a middle grade...

Stunning.

Holy hell. You know how most books are so predictable that you are just waiting for the words to read like you pretty much figure they will? Yeah? Well this book is in no way predictable. Completely surprising....

This is Now

Once again, the Australian author card has been played and a well-crafted, delightful story has been created! (Seriously, Australians, dude, ya’ll are awesome). By far my favorite thing about this book is the characters. They aren’t perfect and I appreciate that so much! They’re honest and I...

OH, I wanted to love all of you, Fangirl.

Why is is that the books that I anticipate the most always let me down?! I couldn't get past Cath. She irritated me. I loved everything else. The dad. The stories. Simon Snow. Rainbow Rowell's writing. The book cover....

This book is adorable!

I picked this book out for 2 reasons. Reason 1: It was free on Netgalley and I figured why the hell not. Reason 2: The synopsis is something that I had actually never read about before. Probably, and I realized this around about chapter...

Love this series!!

My mother and I read this series like junkies. We've just recently came across it and I'm really upset that I hadn't gotten a hold of these books earlier! This one wasn't as good as the first, I found it a bit slow, but I loved the...

Are you skanked out?

I guess I can’t say that I hated this book. If it were a Lifetime movie (and it definitely has the premise for one), I’d be all over it. Girl with a messed up past saved by the sexy undercover cop next door? Does Mrs. McAdams write for Lifetime? The...

I like this!

I finally got around to reading this. After missing packages and faulty winnings, I ended up buying this book after I heard the sequel was being released soon. And some things are definitely worth the weight. It wasn't creepy like I expected it to...

Not my favorite

God, it took me forever to read this. Sarah Dessen's books feel like home. They take me out of my head for a while, and I don't care how similar they all may be, they have a sense of comfort that I love. However, this just wasn't...

Perfection!

You know when you catch a TV show you haven’t ever seen, but it's been playing for years? The kind when you just so happen to stop on a channel and it is intriguing and you like the hero’s face and funny one-liners so you Google it, and Google turns...

Great!

I think I love Irish mythology more than Greek mythology. It's beautiful, it really is. Teagan, Finn, Aiden, and Abby are back! LOVED them in the first book and I love them still in the second installment. The Turtles are also here. Can't go wrong with the...

My favorite!

Every once in a while I will think of some random moment from my childhood, and then look to the nearest person and ask them if they remember it also (my coworkers get the worst of this). And so many times have I thought about this very...

Creepy!

I think we all remember that one book from our childhood that we checked out at the school library on a whim because everyone else was reading it. And that just so happened to be the Goosebumps series. R.L Stine is obviously a horror...

Read it for Mr. Bennett's snark.

I didn't grow up adoring Mrs. Austen like many others. I found her works in my late teens, and it was then that I fell in love with it. You can tell that so many other books have taken from Pride and Prejudice. I guess in that...

A great lesson!

My younger cousins stay at my house often. They take over my bed. The girls play in my makeup and nail polish, and the boys mess with my guitar. They take everything out of my closet and rearrange it into something that little hands can...
