A Disappointment

I was disappointed in this book. Really disappointed. I finished reading Anna and I was on such a Stephanie Perkins rush that I tried to make myself excited to read Lola. One the initial first chapters wore off, I wasn't interested. I didn't like Lola and I...

Great and Interesting novel!

This book was my first David Levithan book, and I was not disappointed! David Levithan is a great author, and he was able to make this slightly weird idea and love story become an amazing novel. A is a different person every day, and it's been like...

Probably my new favorite Contemporary!

What can I say about this book aside from the fact that I LOVE IT. I started reading the book because I felt like I had been under a rock, having not already read it. They hype over the book is well deserved. Anna Oliphant is a...

Better than expected!

This book was better than I imagined. I was a bit apprehensive due to my prior knowledge of the Fowler sisters, but the book was pretty enjoyable. I received an arc from the Goodreads First Reads Program and was excited to read the book. The book is...

Love this book!

I finished the book a couple of days ago, and went right into the sequel. The imagery in the book is amazing, and the storyline is well written and heartbreaking. I absolutely love Lena, Alex, and Hanna. The character development was great. When I read the ending, I knew I...

Amazing Sequel!!!

I added exclamation points because I can't even stress how much I love this book. This is one of only two instances in which I loved the sequel more than the first book. I loved the fact that we get to explore the wilds in the book...

A Great Page-Turner!

My rating: 5 stars. This book was AMAZING. I initially got interested in it because it reminded me of something else that I read a couple of months ago. This book got me hooked almost instantly. The first few chapters...

A great book for everyone!

This book was SO GOOD. I was a bit skeptical of it at first, the fact that it is a middle-grade book and all, but it was such a good book. From the beginning, I was captivated by the mystical land that is The Land of...

This book is AWESOME!

I LOVED Divergent, so I couldn't wait to read Insurgent. The beginning of Insurgent was a bit slow. Tris kept going back and forth from trying to be strong and then being miserable and weak. I get that she had to go through a lot in Divergent, especially with what...

An amazing book!

From the beginning, I was hooked. I fell in love with Charlie and all of the other characters. One of the main reasons I loved the book was the format. I love the fact that we not only get to know things about Charlie's life, but we also get to...
