Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

Normally I wouldn't post something more than two or three days ahead of its publication date, but since I didn't finish this one, I'm going to go ahead and post it. For the longest time I was super excited about this. I made...

The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

I honestly had a lot of mixed emotions with this book. In some ways I loved it, but in other ways I didn't. In some ways I could absolutely connect with the main character while in other ways I wanted to shake her a couple of times. ...

Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Anyways, as you know, Pushing the Limits was one of my favorite reads of 2012, so when I heard about Dare You To, I was superrrrr excited. And then I got upset when I saw that the names were Beth and Ryan and not Beth and Isiah. I was sad...

The S-Word by Chelsea Pitcher

I was expecting something else from this book. Something else entirely. Normally I wouldn't write a review for this because I didn't even make it to page 50, but I just had to tell someone what I really disliked about this story from its beginning pages. The writing...

Criminal by Terra Elan McVoy

I know I've read a good book when the words start a war within my head long before I've even finished it. And this book did just that. The war was between how conflicted I felt about the characters. Nikki is so in...

The Prince by Kiera Cass

This was a great glimpse into Prince Maxon's head. I loved this little tidbit even more inside Maxon's head than when we viewed them from America's point of view. I think because Maxon had so much more on the line than America had. Also, I know this says...

The End Games by T. Michael Martin

I had so many thoughts on this book. It was so hard to come up with a review. I wanted so bad to love it, but I just didn't fall for it right away. I had so many things I loved about it but at the same time, some...

The Selection by Kiera Cass

Note: As I do not read any reviews on the books I read before I write my own, I had no idea about the controversy surrounding this book and the author. The rating is solely based on my opinion of the book and that alone. Well, what...

Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Everything about this seris is amazing. And then there are all the amazeball covers. This series is so good; I love how its all climaxing. Unfortunately to me, this wasn't the best one (my favorite is still Deity...) but it is still so so good. If you haven't started this...

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

When I first saw this book, I was intrigued by the cover. Then I heard that it was set in the 80's and I knew that I needed to read it. Although I wasn't born until the late 80's, a lot of the references I was still able to relate...

If He Had Been With Me by Laura Nowlin

This book could have been so extremely epic. But there were so many things preventing it from being that. It took me couple days just to sit down and figure out how to word the review without turning it into a rant. Yes, I am just THAT mad at this....

My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi

As soon as I heard what this book was about I knew that I HAD to read it. Any book that can serve two purposes by being entertaining and giving a lesson at the same time is a winner with me. Before I even read the book I had no...

Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally

Although I saw it was about religion and I was a little iffy, I never doubted it because it was a Miranda Kenneally book. I knew it could be nothing but good. And she definitely did not disappoint. In the beginning, (no pun...
