REVIEW: Just Friends

I really enjoyed this one, which is why I should stop being lazy & write a full review for it. (It’s worthy of one, for sure.) I don’t know how Pitcock did it, but somehow she managed to take the MOST ANNOYING trope of all romances I’ve read (spending half the book with both MC’s […]

REVIEW: How not to Fall

I really, REALLY enjoyed this book. It’s for so many reasons, but let’s see if I can’t to sum it up with this: How Not To Fall is everything, EVERYTHING that Fifty Shades of Grey & all of the subsequent FSOG knock-offs/Raunchy new adult series it inspired tried and failed to be. I’m going to write it again, just so I’m being […]

REVIEW: The Way to Game the Walk of Shame

REVIEW: The Way to Game the Walk of Shame

  Generally speaking, I prefer my romance with (a little) raunchy goodness mixed in with it, but it always excites me when I come across a true YA genre book that entertains me from beginning to end like The way to Game the Walk of Shame. I’m also a sucker for a faux-mance scenario, and it’s […]

REVIEW: The Hook Up

As far as heroines go, Anna is the first one in a long time that didn’t annoy the Hell outta me. (not right away at least.) I really wish authors would stop portraying their leading woman as someone with no self-esteem, who needs constant validation from the hottest guy in town. As usual, the portrayal of the […]

REVIEW: RoomHate

REVIEW: RoomHate

This book wasn’t what I expected. And by that I mean it doesn’t live up to it’s title…like at all. I expected way more of a hate-to-love situation than what I got. The first half of the book was less sexual tension and angry sex, and more boy pulls girls hair and stomps on her lunchbox because […]

REVIEW: How to Break a Boy

REVIEW: How to Break a Boy

This novel got the tear-factory up and running. And yes, it’s true that I’m a TOTAL marshmallow. But I’m also someone who avoids popular books like Fault in Our Stars and anything Nicholas Sparks because I hate when it feels like a story is trying to manipulate me into the FEELS zone. Seriously, Fuck that […]

REVIEW: The Summer of chasing Mermaids

There was a time when I wasn’t quite so stingy with 5-Star ratings. But now that I’ve given up the pretense that I’m going to be a serious book reviewer/blogger (I barely have time to write my own stuff), I’m trying to be fair as I can to those books & series that are without a […]

REVIEW: The Problem with Forever

REVIEW: The Problem with Forever

  Pushing the limits by Katie Mcgarry is one of my favorite Young Adult stories that I’ve come across in recent years. It wasn’t the most original or even the most exciting, un-put-downable novel I’ve picked up by any stretch but McGarry made me fall in love with all of the characters. Echo and Noah […]

REVIEW: Take Me On

REVIEW: Take Me On

  When I first started reading this I thought this was going to be another miss for me. I loved “Pushing the Limits”, Katie McGarry’s debut novel but up until now all of the additional novels she wrote for this series were hard to get into. But Take me on however, is another win for her. […]

REVIEW: Lying Out Loud

    Question: How is it possible to enjoy a book SO much when you can see every plot point coming before it happens? Answer: Kody Keplinger, ladies and gentleman. That’s how! Wow. I know that the L-O-L on the book’s cover is supposed to stand for “Lying out Loud” but if she were to change […]
