Review: Memoirs of a Geisha

Review: Memoirs of a Geisha

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 […]

Review: Matched

August 29, 2012 Review 2 ★★★★

  This will be fairly short but I just wanted to share some quick thoughts on Matched even though everyone and their brother has already read it. First off, the idea behind this was great. I remember being at a Target about a year ago and being torn between buying Matched or Divergent and I bought Matched because I’m a […]

First let me say if it weren’t for a Goodreads contest I would have never gotten the opportunity to read the first in the series, Glow. These novels were so out of my normal genre I probably would have never picked them up. What a mistake I would have made because these are amazing. Even if you don’t like books […]

  Wow. This novel was amazing. Now before you get the idea that this review is all about praising how awesome it was and unicorns-rainbows-fairytales let me say I really did not like this at first.     The way it’s written made me so frustrated at first. Like on the cover, the words being crossed out made a frequent appearance […]

Characters. You’ll be able to relate to them and their relationships. Even the takes-everything-in-stride lead had some realistic qualities and quirks. Skye, the lead of which I speak of, didn’t seem all too concerned about the strange happenings around her. Although I liked how she took charge to find answers, if my eyes turned bright silver and I shortage out […]

Review: Pregnant Pause

Review: Pregnant Pause

August 12, 2012 Review 0 ★★★★½

I was roaming Goodread’s lists when I came across a “best YA pregnancy books” and for whatever reason I’ve always enjoyed books that deal with teen pregnancy. It’s weird I know. When I opened the list, I was pretty disappointed in the books that were on there, because they were just the same old books everyone reads. But then I […]

I absolutely loved Graceling and I loved Fire even more; when I found out there was going to be another book in this series I was completely overtaken with joy. I immediately set out and bought and reread the other two books to get in the “Seven Kingdoms” mood. The thing about me though is, that if I like the […]
