Disappointing

Temptation was a pretty big let down. Amish culture fascinates me and I was hoping for something awesome and...didn't get it. The writing was just okay and Rose and Noah have some major insta-love issues and they could really use a reality check. Rose and Noah both...

Not What I Expected

This was cute and I really liked it. But it wasn't what I thought it would be. You look at a title like Flirting in Italian and expect a crap load of romance and fun, right? Wrong, all wrong. There were family mysteries and a lot more...

Genius!

For those of you not aware, the first book is Hourglass and it's narrated by Emerson (one of my favorite heroines ever). Book two is narrated by Kaleb. Kaleb's more of a mess than I am right now. He's full of emotions he can't really control (literally), his dad was...

Another Amazing Keplinger Book

Every Kody Keplinger book seems to be better than the one before it. Whitley was a messed up character, there was no denying that. But I liked her. She grew up a lot, she changed. She became a pretty awesome person and we as readers got to...

Very Cute!

This book? Five kinds of adorable. I loved Molly and Charlie. They were both sweet and fun characters. I loved how much they changed while they were spending time in each others rooms. Both were kind of single minded with this is what I like and I...

Unexpected Love

This book gave me a lot of The Feels. So, first my schpeal on cheating. It's really not okay and I hate when characters do it. It's never ago and it frustrates me. However, in this book? It made a good point. Technically, Clem was never REALLY...

Not For Me

I was sure I was going to love this one, I really was. Mermaids! A release date on Boy's birthday! Pretty cover! Macmillian as a publisher! Super nice author! So much potential! I was really, really let down. Emma and Galen were okay on...

Just...Wow

Code Name Verity was one of those books where I wasn't sure it was for me. World War II fascinates me as something that happened in history, but I tend to avoid books that take place during it because they just don't interest me. They tend to tackle the same...

Almost Love?

I kind of loved this book? I think? Let's talk about our characters. I was really worried that so many points of view would make the story disjointed or weird, but it didn't really. Yes the story would've been perfectly fine with just Kylie and Max's perspective,...

Almost-love

This is not your average YA vampire novel. But then again, it's Julie Kagawa, so why would you ever expect average? So, Allie is five kinds of badass. She's an orphan, she takes care of herself and kinda takes care of another kid, she can fight, and...

The Most Unhelpful Review Ever

I never really connected with Natalie. I think it was because I had such high expectations for her and her character and she just...I dunno. She wasn't what I expected her to be. She was strong and independent, but...she didn't quite fit what I imagined. And I...

LOVE

So, I'm not all that familiar with Robin Hood. I've watched a documentary about how he might've been real and what would've been the true story, but I never really researched or made myself familiar with the characters. That was something I really appreciated about Scarlet. A.C....

Enjoyable, but....

Guys, let's have a little chat. William Shakespeare is a fantastic writer, honestly. He's created a lot of words we use today, his writing is really beautiful and descriptive and there's a reason we quote him so much. However, I hate Romeo...

LOVED It!

Part of me worried that this would be ridiculously shallow and silly and I'd hate it, but not even close. Not. Even. Close. Instead I found myself craving the next books but unable to order them and now that I can, I worry I'll drop everything to read...
