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: 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 […]

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 […]

Book Review: This Is How it Happened by Paula Stokes

Book Review: This Is How it Happened by Paula Stokes

It’s been awhile since I read a Paula Stokes book and I wanted to try and read her newest release at some point this month. It looked really good and I was excited by the storyline. This book was the second book in a row that involved a main character coming out of a coma who had memory loss. Memory loss is a fascinating thing to me, so I couldn’t wait to dive into this book. Unfortunately, I was bored […]

Book Review: Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta

Book Review: Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta

Shimmer and Burn is the biggest, though darkly pleasant, surprise of my reading year so far. I hadn’t heard anything about this before going in, other than just a bit of the synopsis, so I had no expectations. But I was blown away. This book has so much I love in a fantasy, from cruel princesses to poisoned magic, a feline companion and a tyrant of a king. I fell head over heels for this fantasy and its world, I […]

Book Review: The Secret History of Us by Jessi Kirby

Book Review: The Secret History of Us by Jessi Kirby

Oh my goodness you guys! I don’t think I’ve reviewed any of Jessi Kirby’s books on this blog, but I know I reviewed her last release on my old blog. After reading her previous book, Things We Know By Heart, I knew Kirby was going to be one of my favorite authors. So I waited for her next book and when it went up on Edelweiss, I immediately snatched it up with no idea when I was going to be […]
