Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

When I first heard of this book, I was put off of by the title of it. An entire book about having no water? But then I realized what that would mean if it were to ever happen... Death to humans, plants, and animals alike, and this story became a...

Unbreakable by Kami Garcia

I have so many thoughts on this book I'm not sure where to even start. On one hand, I was in love with some things, but on the other hand, I hated some things. But overall, the debut of Kami Garcia's solo writing career is off to a good start....

Wildcards by Simone Elkeles

After reading her Perfect Chemistry series, I was smitten with Elkeles' work. I've had her on my auto buy list for as long as I could remember, so when I heard about another contemporary romance coming out by her I knew I HAD to have it. I have been waiting...

Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone

Let me give you all a little back story on me and this series. As soon as I finished my review of Book one (Time Between Us), I sat back in let all the feels I had wash over me. I was heart broken that Anna and Bennett had...

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

When I first heard about this book I didn't want anything to do with it. I hated everything about vampires because of the girly sparkly ones that were popping up in pop culture. But once ARC's of this book started going out, people started telling me to read it because...

Jessica Darling's It List by Megan McCafferty

Not going to lie, I was not expecting much from this book. First off, its a spin off of a very popular YA series that I haven't read yet. I barely knew much about it besides the fact that the girl's name was Jessica Darling. In other words, I...

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

From the very beginning I was hooked! There is so much action and suspense in this book I was biting my nails nonstop. I found myself yelling at this book telling them what to do and trying to make them listen to me. Unfortunately they didn't hear...

The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

Since I've been on this deeper contemporary kick for basically the entire summer, I started asking for recommendations for what to read. I got a couple people that told me this doesn't have a deeper meaning, but its still a contemp that I would love because basically everyone that had...

Wait for You by J. Lynn

After reading and absolutely LOVING Frigid, this was an auto buy for me. I just knew that I would love this one just as much. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. Although I did indeed like it, it just didn't tickle my fancy quite like Frigid. Everything I loved about a...

Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

After finishing this book I'm stuck thinking to myself "Did I read the same book as everyone else? I think I did it wrong." Everyone I'm friends with on Goodreads LOVED it and I was struggling not to DNF it. The only reason I plowed through it was...

I am ashamed to say I left this sitting on my shelf for over a year. I always knew I wanted to read it, but I just kept getting slammed with my TBR pile and it kept getting pushed back. And then the second book came out and I knew...

The Weight of Souls by Bryony Pearce

I haven't read a book surrounding ghosts in a very long time. (I think the last one I read was Hereafter and I didn't even finish that series smh)The reason behind that... I wasn't just that interested in ghosts. *shrugs* But this one got me. And it was all because...
