Book Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Book Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

When I first read the synopsis for this book last summer, I was excited. This book sounded very much like something I was going to love. I was in LOVE with the cover, which is what had caught my eye first, even before I had read the synopsis. I was planning to read it around Halloween, but I just didn’t get to it. So I put it in my list of options for my January TBR and hoped I’d finally […]

Stacking the Shelves #31

Stacking the Shelves #31

Hi everyone! I hope the new year is treating you well. It’s been pretty uneventful around these parts, but that’s just the way I like it. I’ve been throwing myself into reading. In 2015, I read at a snail’s pace, so reading five books in two weeks is a big deal for me (especially considering I’ve also been working on A Game of Thrones.) I’ve also been following my mood with my reading, which has made everything a bit easier. […]

Book Review: Other Broken Things by Christa Desir

Book Review: Other Broken Things by Christa Desir

I don’t know how Desir does it. She manages to keep readers hooked from beginning to end. She weaves complex characters into a raw & gritty story that takes you on a roller coaster of emotions. If you are the type of person that needs to like the characters in the books you read, then you should skip this one. Natalie is a tough character to like, but I absolutely adore complex & unlikeable characters. Natalie is fresh out of […]

Book Review: The Mystery of Hollow Places

Book Review: The Mystery of Hollow Places

So you know when you pick up a book and you feel it in your bones that this is going to be amazing, a totally You book? It’s got all the markers, from the cover, to the genre, to the first few pages – it’s like YES, I’ve finally found something I know is gonna kill me. Well, this was supposed to be that book. But it wasn’t. Instead, it was wholly detached and very uninterested. I loved a lot […]

Setting My Goodreads Challenge

Setting My Goodreads Challenge

At two in the afternoon on January 4th, I completed my Goodreads challenge. See, I set my challenge to exactly one book. I had been debating with myself for a few weeks leading up to the new year – should I aim high? Should I set it at the number of books I read in 2015? Maybe I should stick to 50 because that’s a respectable and attainable goal. There were so many options and each had its merit. One […]

Book Review: This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Book Review: This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Nothing I can say will ever do this beautiful book justice in my mind. I mean, WOW. What an incredibly gorgeous, yet heartbreaking book this was. I wasn’t sure what to expect, wasn’t sure I’d love this book as much as I wanted to, but at about 12% of the way through, the tears started falling and they never let up. I think part of the emotion was because this has happened so many times in the US. School shootings […]
