ARC Book Review: Guy in Real Life by Steve Brezenoff

ARC Book Review: Guy in Real Life by Steve Brezenoff

Book Reviews | May 21, 2014

Here’s the thing: if you write a book about nerdy characters who are into geeky pastimes like gaming, I’m probably going to read that book. Simply put, when I read the blurb of Guy in Real Life, I knew I was reading this. Overall, I did enjoy myself, though I may not be able to clearly articulate why. […]

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. As I looked at the topic for this week I had a moment like, “Wait, didn’t we do this topic just last year?” Well, we didn’t, but roughly a year ago I wrote an elaborate mushy post including examples […]

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

Book Reviews | May 19, 2014

After just fifty pages of Cora Carmack’s debut, Losing It, I knew that I 100% needed Faking It in my life, so I ordered it right away. And this author just keeps impressing me. If all new adult were like this, it could easily become one of my favorite genres. Faking It follows the absolutely awesome Cade, who […]

Book Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Book Reviews | May 16, 2014

The new adult genre and I have a pretty complicated relationship. Well, as far as relationships go. I mean, I think I can still count the number of new adult books I’ve read on one hand. But the ones I’d read did not really entice me to go back for more. New adult, until now, has pretty much […]

Book Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Book Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Book Reviews | May 14, 2014

Hourglass is mostly pitched as YA time travel for fans of Doctor Who. Well. I can’t think of a description that would have me more desperately convinced I need a book in my life, honestly. So I finally got my hands on it and read it, and I did really enjoy it! It didn’t completely blow me away, […]

General, Lifestyle | May 13, 2014

Hi there, kiddos! As you probably guessed by the title, I don’t have a Top Ten Tuesday post for you today. Instead, I come to you with a bit of a request. As you may know, I’m currently a grad school student, and low and behold, the time has come for me to complete my thesis. This means […]

Book Review: Emma by Jane Austen

Book Review: Emma by Jane Austen

Book Reviews | May 12, 2014

I have a bit of a rocky relationship with classics. Basically, we rarely get along. Mostly it’s just because I was forced to read many classics in grade school and the simple act of being forced to go through books I was not ready to read and analyze made me despise reading. But, now that I love to […]

ARC Book Review: Meridian by Josin L. McQuein

ARC Book Review: Meridian by Josin L. McQuein

Book Reviews | May 9, 2014

When I read Arclight last year, I enjoyed it immensely. I’ll be the first to admit it was one of my favorite debuts of the year. The writing was vivid and beautiful, and the story was unique and haunting. However, almost a year later, my interest in the series has sadly waned. Meridian definitely did not live up […]
