Be Still MY Pure Heart

Jennifer L. Armentrout has done it again. Seriously, this woman is a book goddess. The first book of this series was gold, and this book is too. It was funny, actiony, and made my heart skip a couple of beat several times. Her writing...

Be Still My Sassy Heart

This twist on Greek mythology was amazing. Jennifer L. Armentrout created a world that really shows the flaws of society in an exaggerated way. Half bloods and pures can't be together and half bloods are sometimes put into slavery,despite them both being so similar. It's kind of like racism...

Be Still My Disappointed Heart

Now "The Vampire Diaries" is one of my favorite tv shows. I recently was introduced to it by my friend and I have been binge watching it for months. Recently, I discovered the show was loosely based off a book series. Usually I read...

Be Still My Cute Heart

This book. This book was... absolutely fantastic. The third book in the standalone series, "Anna and the French Kiss", "Isla and the Happily Ever After" was such a satisfying book. Matter of fact, I think I'll go ahead and claim it as my favorite...

Be Still My Bored Heart

The book was a bust for me. It had potential but it was sloppily put together. The author didn't do a good job building up the world. He tried to explain everything in one conversation, making the details too forced. Also the way people...

Be Still My Cold Heart

I've seen this book in my library for about a year and I kept passing by it because it didn't seem interesting. I saw so many good reviews though on booktube, I finally decided to read this. The world Holly Black creates is very fascinating and the way she portrays...

Be Still My Torn Heart

This book was absolutely wonderful. It was so beautifully written. The prose is amazing and the plot is just mind blowing. This book messed with my psyche and psychologically messed me up so much, but I don't even care. I love it. The metaphors are so excellently written, they shock...

Be Still My Alien Heart

This book was something special to me. Not only way the romance and the actual plot good, but the social issues it hit was perfect. The book really highlighted the flaws of not only our society but the general idea of all societies. No society is without its flaws....

Be Still My New Heart

This book was hilarious. Normally I don't read book from male point of views, but this book was an exception. I really enjoyed the humor in this book. There was nothing extremely exceptional about the writing but it was still a really enjoyable book....

Be Still My Bloody Heart

So this book... I just can't even. Percy Jackson has been a part of my life since elementary school and I can't believe it is all over. The only nonspoiler thing I can say about this book is that I am happy that everyone is happy and I am sad...

The Darkest Minds is quickly becoming one of my favorite book series. Alexandra Braken has created such an amazing world that really highlights the faults of society and the American government system. This second book made me fall in love with Ruby all over...

Be Still My Confused Heart

At first, I didn't want to read this book. But then Whitney from Whitty Novels raves about the "Shatter Me" series all the time so I decided, why not give it a go. Oh my gosh, so worth it. This book is fantastic. Tahereh Mafi creates...

Be Still My Beating Heart

This book was on sale in Amazon.com so I decided, why not buy it. My best friend enjoyed it, so I figured I had a chance of enjoying it. Boy did I enjoy it. Anything that deals with angels and the supernatural is great in my book. Add a hint...

"World After" Review

Just like the first book, I loved "World After" Penryn was a badass and Raffe was enjoyable per usual. I really didn't enjoy the beginning of the book. It seemed slow to me and because it lacked Raffe I didn't enjoy it. As soon as he came back into the...

"The Fault in Our Stars" Quick Review

I really enjoyed this book, but probably not as much as other people obsess about it. It was a sweet contemporary read. While the ending was sad, I didn't cry.
