A Simply Books Review

Why I Loved It: I gave this book a pretty high rating on Goodreads, something I'm sure not everyone will do, mainly because the book was exactly what I needed. It's a perfect summer book. I have to say that the book was not at all what...

One of My Favorite Books of All Time

Why I Loved It: Ok I'm worrying that I'm going to ramble. Or gush. Most likely gush. Disenchantments and I have an interesting history. Believe it or not, I gave it up at ALA. My friend was steaming because she wanted it. Luckily,...

A Very Pleasant Surprise

Why I Loved It: First off, there are so many books that I read over last semester that I never had a chance to review. I went back and made a list of the books and counted over twenty books that I loved that deserved some awesome reviews....

I still enjoyed it..

Why I Loved It: Let me just say, I have got to stop reading Goodread's reviews before I write mine. I just like to know what people are thinking. It usually makes me feel better if I have to say something negative. But no more! ...

More Please!

Why I Loved It: Out of books from 2012, this is one of the most unexpected love-at-first-read experiences I've had. The whole cyborg thing had me off a little, if only because it's not something I have gotten into with a book, even with my love of Star...

Not What I Was Expectinng

Why I Loved It: At the risk of being cliche, revenge has never been so sweet. I read this book pretty early into last semester. Thursdays were library days, so I think I took it with me on a Thursday and wrapped it up by sixth period....

Something Totally New and Refreshing!

Why I Loved It: I really, truly loved this book. I found it on my bookshelf yesterday and remembered that it was being released this month. I knew that the book had to be great if only because the author shares my love of chocolate pudding. ...

Interesting Historical Fiction

Why I Loved It: How could I not? I love historical fiction, and it's been a long time since I've read one. There were a lot of pluses in the book for me. The fact that it took place in France was AWESOME because I love...

An Amazing Contemporary Novel

Why I Loved It: It breaks my heart that I didn't read this first when I was approved for a NetGalley copy. Life got busy and so on, sob story, and moving on. There was a review of it a couple weeks ago that I saw, full...

Will Be a Favorite of 2013

Why I Loved It: After reading Cinder *which I did pretty recently because I was putting it off for fear of hating it due to the whole cyborg-cinderella idea* and loving it, I knew that I would have to buy Scarlet. Which is probably why it was on...

Why I Loved It: *Warning* There may be spoilers from the first two books in this review. If you have not read Delirium or Pandemonium, back away slowly and get busy reading. I have decided that this is a very hard review to...

Incredible Storytelling

Why I Loved It: Out of the Easy was nothing like Between Shades of Gray. But it was incredible nonetheless. I have never read a book with so many scenes in a brothel that I enjoyed so much. The book had ounces and ounces of character...

Fantastically Funny

Why I Loved It: Oh the laughs I had reading this book. Lexi is part of a pageant family, which takes up a lot of time and lots and lots of money. On a dare, she goes from the girl with the great personality to the girl...
