ARC Review: None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio

ARC Review: None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio

March 20, 2015 Review 34 ★★★½

My feelings are all over the place on this one but I know one thing: I really did enjoy it. NONE OF THE ABOVE tells a story that needs to be read, and Kristin’s journey held my attention for its entirety. However, I did have some minor issues with it. There were a few bumps in the road plot-wise, I […]

Review: Unwanted by Amanda Holohan

Review: Unwanted by Amanda Holohan

March 18, 2015 Review 10 ★★★½

It was only a couple of years ago when the dystopian trend was in full swing. We got some good books out of it, but we also got some carbon copies.

Even though I had a few issues with it, I thoroughly enjoyed THE WINNER’S CURSE. I immediately fell into the world, reading the majority of the book in […]

Review: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Review: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

March 2, 2015 Review 32 ★★★★½

It’s not often a contemporary book like THE START OF ME AND YOU comes along. It made me laugh out loud and want to gross sob (sometimes simultaneously). This book has heart. While it has elements most YA contemporary books do: being cute, humorous, and fun, it also deals with grief and loss, finding oneself, and learning to move on. […]
