January 24, 2013 Review 18 ★★★★

 I kind of dislike reviewing popular books that came out years before I got around to reading them. There are so many reviews already out there, and nothing I say will be anything not already heard. That aside I feel like I need to review this, mainly because of how surprisingly good it actually was. Part of what made me […]

I seem to have become a habit that I really like books that most people just find average at best.I don’t know how well this review will turn out, considering how bad I am at conveying why I love books. It’s easy to explain why a book is awful, but my brain turns all mushy and gets off track on […]

December 2, 2012 Review 2 ★★★

 This book was kind of a let down for me. I’ve absolutely loved every single one of Ellen Hopkins’s books, even Identical which weirded me out. This book just didn’t do it for me like I expected it to. It was good don’t get me wrong but the verse wasn’t as poetic as it use to be. It just stated […]

I seem to be one of the few people who actually liked this book. Immediately after reading it I bought the sequel on my Nook, which is rare given how stingy I am with my Nook money. After reading many reviews I do somewhat see what most of the people where talking about. This story being a bit cliche, similar […]

This is one of those books that gets tons of good reviews and is recommended to you by your friends but you just don’t know if you’ll actually love it like they do. The first chapter or two I didn’t love it. Craig was one weird guy. Especially when he mentioned how he liked to pee in the dark. Uhh… […]

October 1, 2012 Review 3 ★★★

So this book was a definite three stars. I liked it. But it wasn’t something I’d recommend to most people. I’ve read a few other books based on scripts of movies and they were iffy. This followed the script almost to a T which I liked, and the author was really descriptive and wrote in a way where I felt […]

August 31, 2012 Review 3 ★★★★

 This book is kind of hard for me to review, because it’s so far from what I usually read. Although I might drift away from the mainstream books and series, I always stay with YA. I’ve been intrigued by this book since the moment I saw the trailer for the movie back in 2005, and the cover is just so […]
