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 […]

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 […]
