3 Things About Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

3 Things About Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

April 23, 2018 Review 2 ★★★½

An amazing cast of characters Hands down, the strongest aspect of EMERGENCY CONTACT was the characters. Sam and Penny felt like friends I have known in real life, with genuine emotions and quirks and problems that are easy to relate to. Even the side characters stood out and were strong characters on their own. The “emergency contact” texting aspect was […]

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

February 27, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

“No matter how careful I am, eventually I’ll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal.” Not what I expected at all I think from the synopsis and hype I was sort of expecting THE CRUEL PRINCE to be a mix of A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES and AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS. However, it definitely […]

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

December 24, 2017 Review 8 ★★★★

After really enjoying THE UNEXPECTED EVERYTHING (dogs) by Morgan Matson, I wanted to check out her other books. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE had somewhat of a fun, interesting premise as well: Emily’s best friend has disappeared, but she left a list behind full of things to complete. As an introverted person I could definitely relate to Emily and her struggle […]

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

October 13, 2017 Review 10 ★★

  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

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 […]
