Book Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

Book Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

I really should remember this experience the next time it takes me six months to read a book. I had so much hope for this book ever since I first heard about it. In fact, it was one of my most anticipated reads for 2016. I had talked it up so much last year and I had planned to get to it then as well. As luck would have it, I wasn’t able to pick it up until last spring. […]

Book Review: Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown

Book Review: Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown

I really hate when a book has so much promise and then it disappoints me in such a big way. This book seemed like it would be a really good one, especially given the fact that technology is something most teens have to deal with every day. Teens also battle peer pressure and that was also a big part of this book. Unfortunately, I found Ashleigh to be a giant pain in the ass. I know teenagers don’t generally have […]

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

By now you all know how much I love my dark contemporaries, but in all honesty, I didn’t expect this one to be as dark as it was. I expected it to be more of a creepy doll story, and it was to some extent, but it was a hell of a lot darker than I expected. I figured out very early on why there were four names in the title. I had my suspicions before I started reading and […]

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 […]

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: Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

Book Review: Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

You know, I kind of had low expectations for Follow Me Back. I’ve not gotten along with any other WattPad success stories, so I was a bit apprehensive going into this. But I was so wrong, because from page one I was completely addicted to this story. The easy reading, the social media aspect, so much of this was incredibly compelling. I really enjoyed the way this depicted fame for pop singer Eric Thorn. Just a few months before this […]
