When Tattoos and Witty Boys Collide...

City of Bones is the first book in the Mortal Instruments series. At first I wasn't even sure I wanted to read it, considering there are already four HUGE books out and a fifth to come. But I sucked up my laziness and bad attitude and plunged head first into...

Better than expected!

I'm going to be honest. I didn't want to like this book. It's about a fifteen year old girl who can see ghosts. The premise is great but starting it I had so many reasons to doubt it. But alas, Kelley Armstrong wrote characters that made me flip page after...

Wolves can be sad too!

Maggie Stiefvater is an amazing writer. She has talent that literally steams off the pages. When I was reading Shiver I had to make sure a bunch of times it was really young adult because I feel like the writing is that elevated. I loved the book. I'm not the...

Bring the tissues - it's going to be a sad one

I've been avoiding writing this review because I just don't think my tear ducts can handle it. But I need to do it because this is honestly one of the best books I have ever read. This is the first book by John Green that I have read, and I...

Hello Contemporary, where have you been for the past three years?

There are some books that make you cry. There are some books that make you laugh. Then there are those that make you laugh so hard that you cry. Anna and the French Kiss falls under the last category. I'm not the biggest fan of contemporary. It was all I...

What do you get when you cross Magic and Wolves?

Ren was a refreshing male character. He's not perfect (which to me makes him even more likable) and he has deep feelings for Calla. They both can relate to each other because of their alpha status in their pack of teenage wolves. Which brings me to my second favorite part...

Review: Split by Swati Avasthi

I have a love/hate relationship with contemporary novels. But Split was really a novel I loved. This book is one giant emotional roller coaster that has you crying about every five pages. I have read a few books (even some nonfiction) about abusive households. I have even watched my fair...

Review: Under the Never Sky

What to say about Under the Never Sky - a fast-paced novel that nearly knocked me off my feet...well... I really want to say "where have you been all my life," but since the book just came out this month it would be kind of inappropriate. So...
