Book Review: Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin

Book Review: Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin

March 27, 2015 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

What’s that? A perfect score for a self-published new adult book? YEAH. I’m almost as surprised as you are. But honestly, Catching Liam is basically everything I ever wanted from a new adult novel and it just makes me SO SO SO HAPPY. I should note that prior to reading Catching Liam, I read about 4 other new adult books. I’m binging at the moment. I need the swoons. But… Read more »

March 25, 2015 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I absolutely adored Grave Mercy from start to finish, so I knew that I had to continue on with the series as soon as humanly possible. I’m so glad I did, because Dark Triumph was if possible even better and I just want to flail about like a mad woman with all my love for this series. While Grave Mercy‘s main character was Ismae, in Dark Triumph the focus is… Read more »

ARC Book Review: Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

ARC Book Review: Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

March 23, 2015 Reviews 6 ★★★★

As a huge fan of Kerstin Gier’s Precious Stone Trilogy, when I heard that Macmillan would be releasing the Silver trilogy as well, my heart LEAPED in delight. Dream a Little Dream was a super fun adventure that I just tore through. What appealed to me most about this book is the cool, creative concept of lucid shared dreaming. Honestly, it’s just such a cool freaking idea, and the execution… Read more »

ARC Book Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

March 19, 2015 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

How to Make Debby Fall in Love with Your Book: a guide, clearly followed by Becky Albertalli Step One: Create a main character. Let’s say his name is Simon and he’s gay but very much still in the closet. Make him witty and lovable, with a compelling voice and keen observations about how sexuality is perceived in society. Maybe make him a drama nerd, for extra relatability points. He’ll steal… Read more »

ARC Book Review: Solitaire by Alice Oseman

ARC Book Review: Solitaire by Alice Oseman

March 16, 2015 Reviews 5 ★½

I knew that picking up Solitaire would be kind of a risk. It was the kind of blurb that attracted me because maybe I could relate to this main character and it would make me SOB. But it could also be pretentious, sappy, and/or completely boring. Sadly… it went for the boring route, and I just give zero fucks. Part of what attracted me to this book was the knowledge… Read more »
