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. It’s based on an actual city, Kowloon Walled City, in which many of the horrid dystopian-like elements of the book did happen. It sounded action-packed and realistic yet disturbing. Ultimately, though I found the story entertaining, I felt it was bogged down […]

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

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, […]

Book Review: Sealed with a Kiss by Sarra Manning

Book Review: Sealed with a Kiss by Sarra Manning

Book Reviews | October 21, 2013

I have put off writing this review for almost a week. Frankly it’s because it was just average, and it bored me. And I really didn’t want to have to put that in words. While I really enjoyed French Kiss, it came with a sort of caveat that the series would show a lot of character growth and […]

Book Review: Kiss and Make Up by Sarra Manning

Book Reviews | October 18, 2013

Aww man. I genuinely liked French Kiss, though I had a few issues with it, primarily stemming from the lack of character and relationship development and the heavy reliance on the undeniably electrifying chemistry. And while I still enjoyed reading Kiss and Make Up, we have definitely hit guilty pleasure territory now, because this was a hot damn […]

Book Review: French Kiss by Sarra Manning

Book Reviews | October 16, 2013

Oh, French Kiss. You adorable little book, you. *pets* I’ll say upfront that I didn’t like French Kiss¬†nearly as much as my all-time favorite, Adorkable. But still there is so much enjoyment in this book, and I am sure by now that Sarra Manning is one of those authors of whom I want to read all their work. […]

Book Review: Adorkable by Sarra Manning

Book Reviews | September 19, 2013

I’m pretty sure we all know the quote, “We read to know we are not alone,” by C.S. Lewis. That sums up what this book means to me. This book is the closest that has ever come to being a reflection of me and my life up to now. It is so relatable, and when I find books […]

Book Review: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

Book Reviews | October 5, 2012

Now I’ll be the first to admit that by simply reading the premise, I don’t think this is a book I would normally pick up. It’s not that it’s completely out of my comfort zone or something, but it’s definitely J.K. Rowling’s name on the cover that got me so excited. Harry Potter changed my life, like much […]
