Lovely

This book was both sad and beautiful, but it felt different than most of the other grief books I’ve read. I was surprised by how much I liked Danny as a narrator. At the beginning, he’s quite angry, and while I understand why, it’s hard to sympathize...

Charming!

Also Known As completely charmed me. I was a bit worried going into it–teenage spies? really?–but it won me over in the end. I know the teenage spy books have always been popular, but they’re never really been my thing. However, I really loved the humor in Audrey, Wait!, Robin...

Not Lauren Oliver's Best, but Still Worth It

I have a strange relationship with Lauren Oliver’s writing. I think she’s one of the best modern writers when it comes to turning sentences. She has the style of writing I absolutely love–simple, but profound, that makes you feel like you’re reading poetry without flowery language. However, I despised the...

A Great Horror Read

I am not normally a horror/scary reader, so I approached The Waking Dark cautiously. I was hoping this book would hit the sweet spot between being scary enough to creep me out a bit, but not being so scary I had nightmares. And that is exactly where The Waking Dark...

A Great Ball of Timey-Wimey Stuff

I’d like a time machine just so I can read this book all over again for the first time. My love for time travel is what drew me to this book, but my interest in the characters is what really held my attention. First, I LOVE the...

Mostly Fun

So on the whole, I really enjoyed How Zoe Made Her Dreams{Mostly} Come True, but I couldn’t help but to compare it to Strohmeyer’s previous YA book, Smart Girls Get What They Want. Smart Girls is one of my favorite books I read this year and was just amazing, so...

Fascinating Look at Cults

Like most people, I find the study of cults fascinating and a little sad. I actually ended up taking a class on cults my junior year of college because one of my original classes for that semester–Latin 3, if you’re wondering–was cancelled due to a lack of interest. Shocker. Somehow,...

Glimpses of Greatness, but with Problematic Elements

My feelings towards The Infinite Moment of Us are mixed, but I would say they lean more towards the “dislike” side in all honesty. There were certain aspects of the book I thought were quite worthwhile that invited discussion, but it sort of felt too much like that’s what Myracle...

An Important Book

Opening Line: You think it’s so easy to change yourself. You think it’s so easy, but it’s not. This Song Will Save Your Life is. . . what are the words I can use to describe it, without sounding overly sentimental? This book is one of those...

Perfectly Creepy

Another Little Piece is everything I THOUGHT I didn’t like in books, and yet, somehow, I managed to like this one. And not even like this one–I really liked this one, and I was on the edge of my seat and enthralled the entire time. I read this book over...

Decent Series Start

It took me from May to November to read this book. And not because it was such a long book–it’s one of the shorter books I have on my shelf. And yet, I kept putting it down because I got distracted by bright and shiny books. I even considered marking...

Delightful

Ready Player One has a really serious story at its heart(murder! corporate corruption! The world is crumbling!) but it remains an air of being so FUN just because of the character’s voice and all the wonderful ’80s references. As a ’90s baby, I can’t say I caught most of the...

Just One Day

This book was insta-love and first world problems for a party of one. That “one” being Allyson, our main character. Now, on paper, I was SO sure I was going to connect with Allyson. I was always the “good girl” growing up, the planner, the one who had her life...

I'd Rather not Be Stung

Stung was a highly anticipated book for me, so much so that I listed it on a Top Ten Tuesday for 2013. It was also my last book I read in 2013, and I can say out of the 150 books I read this year, Stung would easily be in...

A Fitting Title, but Not for the Right Reasons

Reading Tumble & Fall was like like trying to catch and keep rain in my hands. Most of the book just passed me by in all it’s ordinary-ness, but every once in a while there would be a scene or a sentence in which I caught of glimpse of what...
