Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor

*MY THOUGHTS* If there's one thing I like every now and then, its a good mystery. And this one definitely served its purpose. I like to challenge myself and see if I can come up with "whodunit" and if I can't it means that...

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

This story brought back so many memories. The reason being: its the most raw, most realistic, most fact based story I've ever read. For this to be my first book by Morgan Matson, I am very pleased with it. It surely will not be my last. My aunt...

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

You guys, this book gave me ALL the feels. I felt so depressed about so many things, happy about so many things, and the love scenes gave me all the mushy feelings. Not gonna lie, I was a little worried about all the hype and the plot, but it exceeded...

Indelible by Dawn Metcalf

If you've followed my blog for awhile, you will know that this is my first review about a book with fairies. I don't normally like fairies, but I saw the cover for this one and decided I wanted to read it... (Yes I know its a bad habit lol)...

The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

More of my reviews can be found here at my blog: Take Me Away...I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, but when I saw that this book featured gargoyles, I knew I didn't have a choice. I HAD to read this. I never expected to love it as much...

This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

You can see more of my reviews here at: Take Me Away... With this being my first book by Jennifer Smith, I fully expected it to be great. Everyone speaks very highly of her other novels, so I was hoping I wouldn't be let down. And believe...

Unbreak my Heart by Melissa C. Walker

To me, the best contemporary romances have a bigger issue behind it rather than just being a love story. This is one of those stories. What I love even more about this is one is the fact that there are actually TWO of those bigger issues going on in this...

Born of Illusion by Teri Brown

I am so beyond frustrated with this I don't know where to start. I was so excited about this book and I just knew I would love it, but that was definitely not the case. The many issues I had with this book definitely over ruled all the things I...

When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney

I thought when I wrote this review I'd be an emotional wreck. I actually just lost my aunt in the same fashion he lost his mom, so I was thinking I might not even have a review for this because I wouldn't be able to see through the tears. To...

Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown

In this day and age, EVERYONE is plugged in. From me, to my mom, to even my grandmother. Everything in the world is done on computers and everyone I know has some type of a cell phone. And this story proves that that is not always a good thing. ...

Golden by Jessi Kirby

This is my first book by Jessi Kirby and I'm so glad I chose this one to start with. This incredible tale of love, fate, and hope was just what I needed right now. This books contains all the feels and I'm afraid I won't be able to explain them...

Ink by Amanda Sun

When I read Shadows by Sun, I just knew that I was going to love this. Unfortunately I did not. I thought I was going to learn so much about Japanese mythology but most of my questions went unanswered in the end. ...

By the look of this cover, I was expecting something very girly and sweet. And that's exactly what I got. A girl who's fighting with different wars in her family, friends, as well as in herself. As a child Hudson was the prima dona ice skater. Her dad was her...

This was a review that was very hard to write. I had so many feelings while reading this, I felt like none of the words I came up with would do any justice. So I'll do my best at trying to get this right. ...

How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Ever since I read the title and saw the cover I knew I wanted to read this book! I admit I was a little hesitant because I had found out it was a road trip novel, but I decided to give it a shot. (In case...
