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 […]

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: 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 […]

Book Review: The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

Book Review: The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

I was really looking forward to this book last year and I was excited when the publisher sent me a copy of it. It looked like something I was going to be obsessed with. Missing children storylines are my jam. Add that to the fact that 5 out of the 6 children in this story actually return, and that gets me more excited about this book. I couldn’t wait to find out what had happened to these kids and where […]

Book Review: You Don’t Know Me But I Know You by Rebecca Barrow

Book Review: You Don’t Know Me But I Know You by Rebecca Barrow

I was really looking forward to this book because it was set to cover two things that aren’t covered much in YA: Adoption & teen pregnancy. I was curious to see how it would all unfold, but also really nervous that I wouldn’t love it. At the time I am writing this review, it’s February and I’ve had a rough reading month. I wanted to dive into this book and be so engrossed in it, that I could finish it […]

Book Review: The Art of Feeling by Laura Tims

Book Review: The Art of Feeling by Laura Tims

It’s nerve-wracking to sit down and read a book when you really enjoyed the author’s debut. You worry that the second book won’t be as good. You worry that you won’t enjoy it as much. You worry that you’ve made your expectations too high. That was me. I was so enamored with Please Don’t Tell last year that reading The Art of Feeling was scary to me. I really didn’t want to be disappointed. Thankfully, for the most part, I […]
