Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

October 13, 2017 Review 5 ★★

  I usually eat up and enjoy any of Kasie West’s books like candy. The characters tend to have a lot of depth for a short YA romance book, but I can’t say that was true for BY YOUR SIDE. The whole premise of this novel sort of revolves around two very different people getting stuck over the weekend in […]

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: 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: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

May 3, 2017 Review 10 ★★★

There is a lot of love surrounding Laurie Faria Stolarz’s books. Both of my friends that do not enjoy reading have read her books and liked them. While I found DEADLY LITTLE SECRET to be entertaining, I think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it when I was younger. One of my biggest issues with this […]

Review: The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

February 7, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★

I’m usually on the lookout for books that a lot of people seem to be enjoying and THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR got my attention after it was nominated for Best Young Adult Fiction in the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards. Like many others, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and would even venture to say the hype is well deserved. Read more »

Review: The Warden’s Daughter by Jerry Spinelli Blog Tour

Review: The Warden’s Daughter by Jerry Spinelli Blog Tour

January 13, 2017 Blog Tour, Review 24

Review A fond memory of mine in middle school was when my English teacher read us chapters of STARGIRL by Jerry Spinelli every day. STARGIRL was an interesting, unique read that made me think, and THE WARDEN’S DAUGHTER affected me similarly. Cammie, the main character, is not exactly easy to get along with but she definitely grows on you. Once […]
