Okay, how can I summon this book up in just a review? I started this book thinking it would be all about a small town girl fighting her way out of there but oh boy I was wrong. This book made me feel so much, it start slow but the...

Hands down for the best contemporary of this year. By far.

Alright how do I start to explain my feelings toward this book? First off I have never ever read anything by Kasie West before so I didn't know what I was putting myself into, but if you're like me and it's searching for something to see if her...

Great Horror Book

Ok, I don't know how to cope with this book. I've been staring at the review page for like 30 minutes and words just can't describe it, when I think I have a line of thought another feelings came crushing down and I'm lost again so this review can be...

Great romance

This book turned out being a very different history than I was expecting to be - at least in the way it was executed since it had a lot more of a soup opera tone to it, but nonetheless this only made me like this book even more than I...

Loved it

Ok, so only by the sinopses of this book I knew it would be something emotional, I was expecting to feel pain but still this book surprised me because it was so much more hurtful than I had expected. We follow the story of Liz Emerson, a girl who screwed...

The "New" American Dream

I wanted to love this book and I thought I would, a story about rich people? Give me. About rich people AND mentally broken? Give me NOW. But this was one of those books that ended up sitting in the middle, I didn't hated or had anything wrong with the...

Good not great

For the first 70% of this book I was kind of bored, it wasn't a bad book but it was basically a romance on space with some survival stuff and a hint of a possible mystery on the future. But them at 70% some things started happening and the mystery...

Anti heroes rules

Characters & Relationships: the thing that I most liked about this book is the complexity of its characters, they aren't any character that can be classified as just good or bad, all of them have shades to their self & unique personalities. Adelina is our main focus, despite the other...

Good

Characters: Aria was a really good lead for this book, she started the book very naive and even kind of... Dumb in certain situations, but I really enjoyed reading her grow, she isn't the kind of character that commit the same mistake twice. On the other front we have Perry,...

Not so great

This emotional, hilarious, devastating, and ultimately triumphant YA debut, based on actual events, recounts one girl’s rejection of her high school’s hierarchy—and her discovery of her true self in the face of tragedy. Fall’s buzzed-about, in-house favorite. Outside, Anika Dragomir is all lip gloss...

Easy favorite

Wonder quickly become of my favorite reads, not only of this year but of all times and it’s easy to see why. The narrative of this story can be kind of childish for some people since it’s very straight forward, doesn’t make very turns to make things more pretty and...
