True Beauty

I dont remember ever little detail from this book. I read it a couple years ago but I clearly remember the message this book sends, That beauty should not be measured by what you look like on the outside but what you have on the inside and how you feel...

Awesome

I read this about a week ago and the reason I’m posting the review now is that I didn’t know where to start without spoilers. There may end up being very few in here. I feel like this one has been the best in the series so far. Almost all...

amazing

The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare was a pretty good book with amazing twists characters. This review will be pretty short because I don’t want to give away anything. My favorite thing about this book was all of the twists and unexpected things that happen. At first I...

Breaking Point

I liked reading breaking point. I think that Alex Flynn paints an amazing story with her words. I liked the characters. And I still remember the plot. I think that she writes about something that a lot of people think about.

A lot of people that read this said that they really liked but to tell you the truth I didnt. I think it was a very cliche book with too many steroetypes. Many f the events that happened werent explained in their entirety so i was left with confusion....

WOW

I read this book a while ago and it has stuck with me. I think Sharon brought to our attention a hazing problem that man areas have. Her characters were all very real acting and I loved reading from their perspectives. My favorite was Dana but I think that the...
