Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Holy crap on a cracker you guys! This book was insane, but in the best possible way. It pretty much left me for dead. In some ways, this book was even crazier than Weingarten’s previous book, Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls and I didn’t even know that was possible. Sasha was a character that I struggled to connect to. I don’t need to like the characters in a book, and generally in a book like this that doesn’t happen. Generally, […]

Book Review: Frostblood by Elly Blake

Book Review: Frostblood by Elly Blake

Oh my goodness you guys! This book was so freaking good and it was a giant surprise to me how much I actually enjoyed it. Fantasy is not normally my thing, so I was worried that I’d hate it. From the very beginning, I was drawn into Ruby’s world and the world of the feuding Firebloods & Frostbloods. I cannot believe it took me this long to read the book. Ruby was awesome as a main character. She was tough, […]

Book Review: This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

Book Review: This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

I honestly don’t even know what I am thinking or feeling right now. What the hell did I just read? This Darkness Mine is truly one of the most disturbing YA books I’ve ever read (though the title for most disturbing book of all goes to The Vegetarian). This book’s synopsis sounds much more romantic that the pages actually are – and not just regular romance; I mean cleaner, nicer. This was actually sick and disgusting and confusing and yet […]

Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

I don’t believe I’ve rated a YA thriller 5-stars since Dangerous Boys came out August of 2014. So in three years I have not been as blown away by a twisting, turning plot with characters doing Terrible Things. If dark psychological contemporary is your thing, you need to add this to your list immediately because you are going to be blown away. Bad Girls With Perfect Faces is such a surprise, such an enjoyable read and features genuine, realistic characters […]

Book Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Book Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Oh my goodness you guys, I could kick myself for not reading Caraval a lot sooner. When I finished it in mid August, I said that this book was going to be my favorite book of the year and I’m hoping I can still say that now. This book blew me away in ways that I never dreamed it could. Caraval was my most anticipated 2017 release and I am so happy to say that it delivered in a big […]

DNF Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

DNF Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

I made it about one third of the way into An Enchantment of Ravens before I gave up. It’s not that this was overtly terrible or anything, but it was so.. shallow and unfulfilling. There was so much potential here and it simply did not live up to it, despite the engaging opening and funny main character. The biggest complaint I have is the lack of emotional depth. Though the relationship between Isobel and Rook took a few weeks or […]

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

I kind of took a chance on this book. For one thing, it’s a Persuasion retelling and I’ve never read the source material. For another, it’s an adult contemporary romance, a genre from which I’ve read exactly zero books. Oh, and on top of that, I’ve never read a second-chance romance. The One That Got Away is all of these things I’m inexperienced with, but the blurb sounded cute and the setting of a castle in England sounded great. And […]
