Screwed Me Up, But I Liked It

MY THOUGHTS Let's get one thing straight: I did not like this book. Yes, I gave it a high rating, but to tell you the truth, this is not a book that you can like. A book I like would not screw up my mind, confuse...

Weird, But Awesome

MY THOUGHTS This was one of my most highly anticipated reads, but I oddly enough didn't have high expectations of it. I liked the author's other book, Another Little Piece, but it didn't wow me. Along with that, this book doesn't have an extremely high average rating on...

Really Interesting, New Book! But Beware of Romance!

MY THOUGHTS Isn't that such a beautiful cover? The first time I saw the cover I immediately wanted to read it! Thankfully, this book does not follow the cover-fraud rule, where the cover is better than the book. Yes, this book was not the best book I've ever...

Very Interesting Idea, and Writing Style, But Was Way Too Over-Hyped

MY THOUGHTS It's The Winner's Curse all over again. The Winner's Curse was an over-hyped book all over the blog world before it even came out! The Kiss of Deception had the same thing happen. ALL THE BLOGS were raving about this book! So I, of course, had...

Just Like Every Other YA Paranormal

THE RUN-DOWN When Chloe was a little girl, she was able to see ghosts. But her mother told her that if she told the ghosts to leave Chloe alone, then they would. And for the past ten years Chloe didn't see a single spirit. That is, until her...

If You Loved Cole & Isabel in the Mercy Falls Series, This is a MUST READ!

MY THOUGHTS I liked The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, but I didn't love it. One problem that I had with it was Sam and Grace, they were okay, but I was very indifferent towards their relationship. Now, Isabel and Cole? I loved them both and I shipped...

Interesting, But Nothing New

MY THOUGHTS Sigh. I'm very disappointed in this book. I've given every Julie Kagawa book 5 stars. Her Blood of Eden series is the best vampire series I've ever read and I adore her Iron Fey series, so needless to say, I expected great things from...

Another Get Contemporary From Kasie West

MY THOUGHTS So, far, I've loved every single one of Kasie West's books. The Distance Between Us was an adorable contemporary and Pivot Point remains to be one of my all-time favorite series! So, I had pretty high expectations for this book! And I am happy to say...

Fun but Heartbreaking

MY THOUGHTS I, honestly, had no idea what to expect from this book. I knew that it was about a road trip, but that's it. I was in the mood for a summer read and this looked like the perfect summer read! This was not what...

Loved the Idea! But Wasn't a Fan of the Writing Style or the Roamnce

MY THOUGHTS I felt as if I was on a teeter-totter the whole time I was reading this book. Whenever I began to enjoy reading this book, I would be high up on the teeter-totter until something would happen in the book and bring me back to the...

Was Promising, but the Characters and the Lack of World-Building Were Hard to Ignore

MY THOUGHTS There was two misconceptions I had about this book: 1. I assumed this was a contemporary when I first saw it. The cover seems like a cover for a contemporary book and the author is known for writing contemporary books, so I thought it was...

MY THOUGHTS I really enjoyed reading this book, which surprised me since I wasn't actually planning on reading this book in the first place. I was actually invested in the story and breezed quickly through the book. But, I've read books like this before. There are a lot...

Original, Exciting, But Not as Good as I Hoped

Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars MY THOUGHTS This book wasn't quite as I expected. I was expecting a bloody dystopian full of non-stop action, which I got, but I was also expecting a book that would knock my socks off and gain a spot on my...

Interesting Premise and Story, Just With an Not-so-Great Protagonist

MY OPINION When I first heard about this book I automatically wanted to read it. I was expecting a fun book where the characters had to face the things they did in the revenge bucket list. It sounded more like a fun read to me, but it wasn't...
