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 […]

With Isla and the Happily Ever After selected as our October book club book, I finally got around to reading Lola and the Boy Next Door. Cute? Definitely. Swoony? A little. Enjoyable and refreshing?

Book Review: Looking for Alaska by John Green

Book Review: Looking for Alaska by John Green

Book Reviews | December 30, 2013

Here we go, issue 328597 in “The Chronicles of Debby, the Heartless Bitch”. As much as I hoped that I would fall in love with Looking for Alaska like almost everyone else and be reduced to a sobbing mess as I was practically promised I would be… it just didn’t work out. Grief stories are officially not for […]

ARC Book Review: Just One Year by Gayle Forman

ARC Book Review: Just One Year by Gayle Forman

Book Reviews | October 9, 2013

How do I even start this review? I was ecstatic when Judith told me she would send me her ARC of Just One Year, because it was honestly one of my most anticipated books of this year, after I read Just One Day. I honestly thought there’d be no way in hell that I wouldn’t like this book. […]

Book Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Book Reviews | March 19, 2013

After the massive disappointment that If I Stay ended up being for me, I was promised, PROMISED I would like Where She Went better. Well. Just like your promises about If I Stay, this sequel wasn’t able to live up to the hype. I apologize in advance for this disjointed review. I’m not sure when I’ve ever felt […]

Book Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Book Reviews | March 10, 2013

I blame the hype machine. Part of me wants to be really cynical right now and scream, “Keep your opinions to yourselves people!” But in truth, I think this is more of a case of “It’s not you, it’s me.” Don’t get me wrong, this is a good book, for sure. But it never made me gasp, cry, […]

Book Reviews | March 7, 2013

Writing this review may be one of the hardest things in the world because… how do you gush and still sound original when the whole rest of the world has read and loved this book? Their reviews are no doubt much more eloquent than mine. The solution? GIFS. Basically, the following is the result of reading this book: […]

Book Review: An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Book Review: An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Book Reviews | February 5, 2013

Hmm. An Abundance of Katherines is good. It’s enjoyable. In many ways I related to the main character. The application of math to romance was definitely an interesting concept. Ultimately, though, it’s not too memorable. The main character, Colin, is a washed up child prodigy, scared he has passed his peak and will not be able to leave […]
