black eyes, broken families, painful nightmares, and someone to help you through it

Told from Travis’ perspective, a story about falling for the unexpected, helping the ones you love, and trying to move on from a painful past. There were some things that made me want to roll my eyes in the book. The idea behind this story wasn’t very original but Trish...

illnesses, love, and self-finding

Told from Sabrina’s perspective, a story about loss, love, and freedom. James Brian could have done a much better job with this. The idea behind this story isn’t very original and it showed because there wasn’t anything special about the book. The characters were a bit confusing and weren’t clear...

Squids, Turtles, and everything in between

The idea behind this story was clever, I loved the way Lucky thought as well as reacted to things. The jungle was interesting while confusing since it would change so easily. The characters were original and clear most of the times but near the ending, they starts to slide...

Emotional, creative, and beautiful

This book was amazing, most of the characters flew off of the pages because they were so funny and creative. Well-written without too much description or explanation in the first few chapters that it was a quick and easy read. A very moving tale about abuse where we learn...

A Marine's pain is everyone's pain

The story is told from Levi’s perspective while the two brothers go on a walking trip through the US and how their wounded relationship somehow heals. Some of the characters were typical and boring while others, like Dov, were fun to read about.

fairytales and true love rolled into one modern story

Between The Lines was written the perspective of Oliver, Delilah, and the Narrator. The characters’ were typical and felt like they were just words on paper, nothing they did made them come alive to me. I loved the idea for this story because it’s different and I was instantly interested...

humour and teenage love

Twisted By Laurie Halse Anderson is told in Tyler’s point of view. Tyler’s thoughts and emotions were funny at times while still intense at some parts. Most of the characters were easy to like and enjoy because of their humour and awkwardness. The idea for this story is good, I...

Preparing For Death

This Is Not A Test is a book with zombies in it. But it’s not really about them, it’s about the fact that Sloane doesn’t want to live anymore and she can’t seem to find the right time to leave the world. The characters in this book were okay, they...

Love, loss, and loads of sunshine

This book made me a little teary-eyed. Hannah Moskowitz took an unoriginal idea and made it original by adding not two summers but four summers in. This story had a great supporting secondary characters that shone in their own little light. The relationship between all the kids in the family...

A book about life and being different

Wow is one of the words that come to mind when I think about this book. The Shifter is told from Nya's Perspective and she lives in a country where almost no one wants to live in. The idea for this story is an amazing one because it focuses on...

Cammie finds her answers

I didn't like the idea for this story in the series, to be completely honest. I was expecting something more from Ally Carter but I still enjoyed this book. The characters were great, the action was okay with a very intense ending that almost made me believe that it was...

If you haven't read, White Cat By Holly Black then you shouldn't read this book. If you have, then read this book. I love this series because of the humour but also because its original and fast. I recommend this series to anyone who loves to laugh and are looking...

The Main Idiot

First of all, I just want to congratulate myself on actually finishing this book. I haven’t read many Angel books but I still found myself rolling my eyes, slamming the book shut, and repeating,“You’re the biggest idiot I have ever met. Why are you so stupid?”At least ten times each...

The idea for Fracture was amazing and I loved it a lot. It was really well written and a few surprising things happens in this book. Although the plot was good, the characters' weren't the best and seemed as if Megan Miranda didn't know what to do with one or...
