Sweet as Sugar

First, I want to say that I read this book in less than 24 hours. It was glorious! It gave me all the feels that Anna and the French Kiss did and that itself is amazing! No second book has ever done that for me before. So this book...

A Guilty Pleasure

This is is not very good but for some reason I kind of enjoyed it. It's going to be one of my super guilty pleasures. I mean Jane is too nice, to the point that she is stupid and blind. She gets into situations that if she just sat back...

A Childhood Favorite

I loved this movie as a kid and I still love it now. It's really a classic by this point.

Wonderful Debut!

This book sounded so good just from the description (we could control our emotions?! Heck yeah sign me up!) and sometimes I'm let down by that. This wasn't one of those times. This book was fantastic, the characters seemed tangible and the plot was really flushed out well. ...

Scary

This is not one of my favorite books, it's a bit too sad for me. I will say that this books has stuck with me since the first time I read it to my younger sister years ago. I've read it many more times since then. I just can't seem...

Not Bad...

When I first read this book in 2010 I hated it. I thought it was overrated and boring. It also felt like most of the books that time, a Twilight feel. Maybe I'm the only one who feels that way. Now though, five years later when I'm missing books that...

Vampires!

A quick read but really enjoyable! The characters are believable and the boys are just WOW. It seems a little more grown up to me then some young adult books I've read, which I love. The setting felt real and seemed everyday life but with an...

I'm Speechless

This novel was really a reread for me as I read it back in February 2013. You may wonder how I even remember that because back then I didn't have Goodreads, I got it a few months later. This was the very first book I got to read after my...
