Book Review: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Book Reviews | November 19, 2014

Have you ever had a book give you butterflies? I have, and that book was Isla and the Happily Ever After. By far my favorite of Stephanie Perkins’ books, Isla is dripping with chemistry, happiness, and love. I can’t even describe just how happy this book made me. It is fluffy romantic perfection. Right from the start, I […]

Hell yes. Stephanie Perkins is the place to be for wonderful contemporary romances. What stands out most about Lola and the Boy Next Door […]

Audiobook Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Audiobook Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Book Reviews | November 14, 2014

In spite of this somewhat happy achievement of finishing a series, Last Sacrifice was one of the most painful things for me to read. Nay, listen to. Listen to. And check out the book info – yeah SEVENTEEN HOURS LONG. Painfully long, horrendously boring, and leading to the most clichéd and sickening ending. I should have stopped after […]

ARC Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

ARC Book Review: The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

Book Reviews | November 12, 2014

When I heard about The Walled City at the BEA Buzz Panel, I was immediately intrigued.

ARC Book Review: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Book Reviews | November 10, 2014

A Thousand Pieces of You quickly rose to the top of my most wanted list because I am the shallowest human being ever and THAT FREAKING COVER. I’m happy to say that I actually really enjoyed it too. I was scared that it would be disappointing, but it was really entertaining, and I believe the series has potential, […]
