Book Review: The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise

Book Review: The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise

Book Reviews | September 21, 2014

Then Gaby graciously gave me her extra copy, because she is the bestest, and I couldn’t resist sneaking it into my TBR […]

Those of you who’ve been around for a bit longer may remember my adventures in reading Vampire Academy as a vampire hater, practically on a dare. Though I found the overall experience likable enough, I wasn’t exactly over the moon enough to binge the series right away – and I certainly didn’t understand the hype. But this is […]

ARC Book Review: Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley

Book Reviews | September 17, 2014

Lies We Tell Ourselves is easily one of the most buzzed about books of 2014 and for good reason. This book is so incredibly important. It’s a book about an icky time in our history, but it’s still so relevant to societal issues going on today. It’s a well-written, well-researched debut that should be on everyone’s list. Lies […]

ARC Book Review: Pennyroyal Academy by M.A. Larson

Book Reviews | September 15, 2014

M.A. Larson’s debut novel, Pennyroyal Academy, is a charming middle grade story (with some crossover appeal to young adult readers) that is sure to delight readers with its fairy tale lore, magic, and mystery. At the end of the day, this short little story just left me wanting… a bit more. I will say that I was instantly […]

Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Book Reviews | September 14, 2014

Why is this a classic? Why is this one of the “great” American novels? Jesus, did this book make me want to throw my e-reader across the room. I don’t get it. So, a little bit of context: I read this for one of my book club’s classics months. I had heard from multiple people that it’s horrible, […]
