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 […]

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

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 »
