Top Ten Tuesday #12: Top Ten Favorite Book Blogs/Bloggers

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here.Top Ten Favorite Book Blogs/BloggersThis week, we get to revisit an old topic.

Book Review: This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

Book Review: This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

As a true hopeless romantic, the “normal girl meets and falls in love with a famous boy” story makes my heart flutter. No matter how cliché, I really enjoy reading stories like it. And yet… This Is What Happy Looks Like is just lackluster in everything. This review will contain spoilers. Beware. I just can’t review this book without pointing out the idiotic plot points. So Ellie and Graham meet by accident when Graham misspells an e-mail address. They don’t know who the other is, but they seem to really easily strike up conversations about almost nothing. So Graham, a famous movie star, when in […]

Book Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Took me long enough to get around to this sequel, right? I’m sorryyy. But I’m here now, ready to put my piece of mind out there and reaffirm that, yes, this is an awesome book and an awesome sequel for an awesome series. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite series, guys. First off, I want to give serious praise to Marissa for her ability to create interesting, captivating characters. Introducing new (main) characters after the series has already started is quite a difficult thing. And most times, for me at least, it doesn’t work. But Scarlet is awesome. Wolf is amazing. Thorne is […]
