ARC Book Review: My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill

ARC Book Review: My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill

I think I’ve surrendered myself to the fact that I will never not be attracted to a celebrity romance premise. It’s turning out to be kind of a curse, because for the life of me, it seems like I just can’t find one that’s good. Indeed, even My Unscripted Life, written by an author I have loved before, fell short. This story follows Dee, a high school student who fills up her summer by working as a PA on set of a movie after she got rejected from a precollege fine arts project. There, she meets teen heartthrob Milo Ritter – who she has of […]

ARC Book Review: The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill

ARC Book Review: The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill

No one is more upset about this than I am. I loved Morrill’s debut Meant to Be so much that I was convinced I could soon add her to my favorite authors list. Cute, romantic books with real characters and personal resonance? That’s instant bait for a fluff-devourer like me. But The Trouble with Destiny was just… not really my cup of tea.

The Trouble with Destiny is basically A Midsummer Night’s Dream on a cruise ship between high school performing arts clubs with a super Disney Channel movie-like vibe. Now that’s the hook and, eventually, […]

So it was easy to predict that I would seriously enjoy this book, and I definitely did. So Being Sloane Jacobs follows Sloane Emily and Sloane Devon as they decide to switch places in their summer camps. Sloane Emily, the figure skater, goes to hockey camp, and Sloane Devon, the hockey player, goes to figure skating camp. It’s told from […]

Book Review: Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Book Review: Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

When I went to London, I was extremely excited to explore the bookstores there. I *may* have created a list beforehand of books I wished most to pick up there. See, I wanted my London book haul to be special, so I wanted to pick up books that were either (a) a UK edition I preferred over the US edition, (b) written by a British author, or (c) set in London/England. When I stood in the bookstores with my list in hand, I quickly realized there was one book I wanted above all others: Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill. And it was nowhere to […]
