Review: 10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac

Review: 10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac

July 20, 2017 Review 10 ★★

When I first read the synopsis for 10 THINGS I CAN SEE FROM HERE, I knew I had to read it. If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, you might know about my long struggle with social anxiety, something I don’t talk about that much. This book immediately intrigued me because I knew I would be able to relate […]

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

July 16, 2017 Review 16 ★★★

WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI started off well with humor and quirky characters – it’s a fun romance but one that I felt lost its way a little.  When we are first introduced to Dimple and Rishi, they are given unique backstories and personalities that made them stand out and be memorable. They are a little nerdy and have some interesting […]

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

July 12, 2017 Review 6 ★★★★

I saw THE GOLDEN COMPASS a long time ago on VHS but I never got around to reading the book. I was always disappointed they never made a movie sequel and I was too young to realize they were books. When the opportunity came around to finally check out this classic, I couldn’t resist. Right away, it’s easy to get […]

5 Books That Really Intimidate Me

June 17, 2017 Discussion 23

This post was inspired by the special books I have had on my bookshelf for five years or more. Why have I had them for so long without reading them you ask? Because they intimidate me. What makes a book intimidating? For me, it is usually due the hype, size, or content. Some books I just have a tendency to […]

Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

June 11, 2017 Review 10 ★★

When I read DEADLY LITTLE SECRET, I had a number of issues with it that stopped me from fully enjoying the book. Because everything had been set up in the first, I had higher hopes for the second book in the series, DEADLY LITTLE LIES. Unfortunately, the issues I found in the first book were just amplified. For a majority […]

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

May 12, 2017 Review 12 ★★★

ROYCE ROLLS is a novel that stands out against other books in the YA genre. It is definitely unique, and fans of reality television are going to want to check it out. As someone who has a love-hate relationship with dramatic television, I had mixed feelings about this book. The novel starts out in the future and then flashes back, […]
