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 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 Stars Never Rise

  I don’t know how else to put this so I’m just going to say it… Rachel Vincent’s The Stars Never Rise was fucking awesome! I’m probably too slow on the uptake to get where the title of the book originates from but damn it, this was creative genius. I’ve only ever read one series […]

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: Burn for Burn

  There’s a certain skepticism that manifests after years of consistently reading novels in the same genres back to back. Unless you’re one of the lucky few readers who are able to find a handful of authors you can trust never to let you down…after a while you just don’t go into a book expecting […]

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: Shadow & Bone

  It’s official. J.K Rowling has forever ruined Young Adult fantasy novels for me. And by that I mean, I’m incapable of reading one by another author without drawing parallels to the Harry Potter series. Now, with that being said… This book was FUCKING AWESOME! Finally, goddamn it—after not being able to get into a fantasy […]
