The Prince

I recently picked up "The Selection Stories". I have to say I loved seeing things from Prince Maxon's POV. It was nice to get into his head. This poor guy is under an enormous amount of pressure from his father. It makes me want to read more from his POV....

Really hit home for me

I have to say I loved every word of this book. Being a young mom myself I found a lot of scenarios in this book really hitting home for me. I thought Reena was written as a very realistic teen mother. It was like I was looking back at my...

Jack Goodwin....Swoon

I have loved every Miranda Kenneally book that I have got my hands on. I was hoping that this would be the case with Racing Savannah and I was not disappointed. I loved this book from the first chapter. Jack is so very swoon-worthy. There is something about guy that...

Our Song

I really loved the cover of this book and I am a sucker for a good love story. But I found myself not really connecting with the characters. The book was slow to start and really didn't pick up for me. I did really like how at the end the...

Fast paced read

Hysteria wasn't really what I was expecting. It was a fast paced read that wasn't as scary as I thought it was going to be. I did enjoy reading it but it is something very different from the books I generally read. If you are looking for a once upon...

Devastated

The Divergent series is one of my favorite series ever written. I am a huge fan of Four and I loved being able to read from his POV. I do love a book with a dual POV it gives you a look at things from the other persons perspective. I...

Could not put this one down

I loved the first book in this series Crash and Clash was no different. I found myself hooked right from the start unable to put the book down. Everytime I tried to put it down to go to bed i found myself picking it back up to read "just one...

An Emotional Journey

I liked The Selection but I have to say I loved The Elite. This book sucked me in and played with my emotions like no book has in quite sometime. I did find myself tearing up at times and gasping as I was taken on this roller coaster ride. I...

The Selection by Keira Cass

First of all I love the cover of this book series. I knew once I read what this book was about that it was a book for me. Princes, princesses and love stories just a few of my favorite things. I also am a huge a fan of reality TV...

Beautifully Creepy

This book was creepy but in a good way. This is definitely not my usual type of read but when I won the book from Penguin on twitter I thought why not give it a try and boy was I surprised by how much I liked it. First of all...

It really pained me to have to give this book the rating that I did. I am a huge Sarah Dessen fan and have loved all of her previous books. I found myself somewhat struggling through this one when it got slow at times. Perhaps because Sarah Dessen is my...

So Much Emotion

So much emotion in this book!! I will admit I teared up. Review to come. I was a little unsure if I would like this book as much as the others in this series. While I did like Hunter in previous books he is definitely not my favorite. I love...

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

I really don't know if my words will be able to do this book justice but I will give it a try. Golden is a beautifully written story about taking chances and finding out what we want in life. The characters in this book are so easy to relate to....
