Alright To Read ONCE

First off, I must say, I have read the first two books (in the real series), and I have also read Nightlight, a parody also written by The Harvard Lampoon. I believe The Hunger Games is a good series, but I'm not a die-hard fan. There a...

Science Mixes With The Supernatural

Opening sentence: "The first time I died, I didn't see God." Beginning Thoughts: I discovered this book while randomly searching book trailers (which is just something I do...for fun). I probably watched the trailer at least ten times before finally getting the book. Anxiously I started reading...

Not Scott's Best

Elizabeth Scott has got to be one of my favorite authors. That being said, this one felt like a disappointment. Miracle, is a story about Megan, also known as Meggie, who becomes the lone survivor of a plane crash. Everyone thinks she is a miracle, and their...

Kind of Like A Road Trip

Out of Reach is kind of like an extended road trip. As a reader I probably wouldn't have read it if I had known that. The main character Rachel, is searching for her brother who has run away after developing an addiction to meth. Rachel is desperate to find her...

I almost missed out

Before I read this, I had read a bunch of reviews most of which said this was a horrible book, and the writing style was hideous. So, I almost didn't pick this book up. Thank God I didn't listen to them. This book is fantastic. I...

Unique but not my favorite

A Need So Beautiful is an interesting story about a girl who literally feels a need to help people. The book is original and a good, fast read. There wasn't anything that really made me pine for a sequel, but yes, there is one out there. I thought it was...

And Now We Know

This Lullaby just kept surprising me and surprising me. Through every twist and turn I thought I knew what was coming next, but then SURPRISE, no I didn't. The characters really got to me and I WISH with a power in me that even wishing wells would be surprised about,...

One of my favorites

I'll admit The Truth About Forever was the first Sarah Dessen book I ever read, but Just Listen was the book that made me want to read the others. I borrowed Just Listen from my friend knowing I had one week to finish it. At first...

More than just a summer read

Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite authors and she says "incredible first novel", and "its fresh and wise, all at once." I knew I would be reading this book. What I did not expect was how much I was going to like it. As with...

Hmm...

I'm not sure how I feel about this one... Eve and Adam is kind of like The Adoration of Jenna Fox, which I absolutely adored (like the name says I would). But, where the story about Jenna Fox seemed more real, Eve and Adam seemed almost too...

Adina and Alex and Fred

Hmmm... I picked this book up at the library randomly, even though I already had a pretty big stack, because I just couldn't look away from the cover. Yes, I know, judging a book by its cover again, but it was beautiful. And the title was intriguing. ...

Not an Epic Fail

Epic Fail is a super cute and super fast read. The book is a pretty light read and goes by extremely fast. I wasn't expecting it, but the book has a Pride and Prejudice vibe to it (and who doesn't at least appreciate Pride and Prejudice?). I am so glad...

From the beginning

I knew from the beginning that this book was going to be a wild, fun, and fast read. And it was. I've enjoyed reading Jennifer Echols' other novels and they all have some of the same elements: love, fun, and at least one touching moment. I absolutely loved Mr. Hall,...
