One Moment by Kristina McBride

I was originally intrigued by this book's GORGEOUS cover. Then when I read the blurb, I just had to read it. So I requested it. Well it wasn't that I didn't enjoy it, I just felt like it was extremely predictable. I knew everything and all the plot twists before...

The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg

Everything about this book was amazing. From cover to cover. Speaking of the cover, it was what initially drew me to the book. After reading the story, it fits perfectly and I love it even more. The actual story was fun...

Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready

There was so much I want to say about this book. Putting the words together for a review is going to be terribly hard. I just loved it to pieces. At some point it ripped me in shreds and other times it made me smile like the events had...

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

From the very beginning you're thrown into a very unique world. Although there is not enough time for a good intro to the world, you are pulled into the story regardless. As it goes on, the world building is PHENOMENAL! I may be biased because I am such a sucker...

Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

I was originally drawn to this on Netgalley from the cover. The bight pink and purple did have me excited. Then I read the synopsis and fell in love. I just KNEW I had to read this! And I'm so glad I...

Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Let's start with the first thing you notice about the book.... The cover is BEAUTIFUL! And it actually means something to the book! Which makes it even better in my eyes. The color is stunning and the rose is my favorite flower, so I was indeed sold from the beginning....

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

When I first heard about this book I knew I had to have it. I thought both the premise and the cover were beautiful. I always wondered about the stories of the lesser known characters in fairy tales and this was exactly what I was looking for. ...

Vanish by Sophie Jordan

Let's first start with the cover.... You guys, its beautiful! I love how she went from the "firey" red one on the first one featuring Jacinda and on this one choosing a cool soothing one featuring her sister Tamara. And the way her draki skin is coming through on...

Defiance by C.J. Redwine

First off, the thing that drew me in at the very beginning was the STUNNING cover. I LOVED it! If you know me, you know that I am one that judges a book by its cover. Even if its out of my comfort zone of reading, if I like the...

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

When i first heard the title I was soooo excited to read this. Then as I read the blurb, I was like.... Uhhh Cyborgs? Lunar people? Androids? Yeahhhh not happening. When everyone else was requesting it on Netgalley, I was trying to stay far away from it. But then I...

Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett

This will be a hard review for me because I'm kind of on the fence about this book. I was intrigued by the book because of its humor, but at the same time I wasn't blown away by the plot. Rose is a great character that was snarky, sarcastic, and...

Beautiful Diaster by Jamie McGuire

WARNING: This book does have sex, alcohol, and bad language in it. Wow. This book. Too much to say, but I'm afraid there's not enough words to cover the greatness that is this book. When I first heard about it, it was last...

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

First off, I want to say I have never read a book like this before. Every mythology book I have ever read had made the gods and goddesses the exact opposite of what this book did. And for that, I thank you Kelly Keaton. It was a refreshing twist...
