Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: All the Rage by Courtney Summers

April 21, 2015 Blog Tours, Giveaways, Reviews 0 ★★★½

I’d never before read a book by Courtney Summers, but I’ve been hearing amazing things about them all the time. So when the opportunity arose to read All the Rage, I figured I should grab it. I was slightly scared of it, because books with such heavy topics are usually far outside my comfort zone. But the subject matter is important, and I wanted to see how this could completely… Read more »

Book Review: Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

Book Review: Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

April 17, 2015 Reviews 3 ★★★★

Since meeting Dahlia at BEA last year, I’ve been in awe of her utter awesomeness. (*cough* I’m not a kiss ass. Whatever.) And I’ve been more curious about new adult books in the last year, so when I heard about Last Will and Testament, my interest was piqued. But I was also worried, because WE TALK and stuff and WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE IT OMG THE WORLD WOULD END…. Read more »

Tag: Burn, Rewrite, or Reread?

April 16, 2015 Memes 9

Lyn from Great Imaginations tagged me to do the Burn, Rewrite, or Reread tag/challenge/thing, and that made me SO HAPPY because honestly, this sounds hilarious. Basically, we’re playing kiss/marry/kill but with BOOKS. The rules are as follows: randomly pick three books you’ve read, and then decide which you would burn, rewrite or reread. I’m using Goodreads and a random number generator, but I’m sure you could do it another way… Read more »

ARC Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

ARC Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

April 15, 2015 Reviews 6 ★★

I’ve been super excited about this mini-genie trend that’s popped up in YA the last couple of years, having loved The Art of Wishing and liked Exquisite Captive, but I suppose it was only fitting that at some point I’d come across one that I really didn’t care for. Becoming Jinn is – unfortunately – a boring flat mess. I think the biggest issue Becoming Jinn has is that the… Read more »

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher

April 13, 2015 Reviews 2 ★★★★

I embarked on this quirky little series when I thought it would only be the original Star Wars series, so I was a bit surprised to hear about William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace. You would think that after three books, the novelty of the Shakespearification of Star Wars might wear off – but no! I enjoyed The Phantom of Menace immensely. I’ll be upfront with you and say that… Read more »
