Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

May 12, 2017 Review 6 ★★★

ROYCE ROLLS is a novel that stands out against other books in the YA genre. It is definitely unique, and fans of reality television are going to want to check it out. As someone who has a love-hate relationship with dramatic television, I had mixed feelings about this book. The novel starts out in the future and then flashes back, […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

In HEXENHAUS this was not the case, as I really enjoyed all the stories and […]

Review: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

Review: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

July 28, 2016 Review 10 ★★★

“In our time together, you claimed a special place in my heart, one I’ll carry with me forever and that no one can ever replace.” DEAR JOHN is my first book by Nicholas Sparks but it definitely won’t be my last. Everyone who has read a book by him probably already knows this but he definitely knows how to write […]

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

July 16, 2016 Review 17 ★★★½

“Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.” It’s Been A Long Time Coming […]
