Book Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Book Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Ever since I started reading YA actively in 2012, I’ve heard the greatest things about Rachel Hawkins as being an author of excellent entertaining and fluffy paranormal romances. As such, I’ve been meaning to try out her books for ages, but it never quite made it to the top of my priority list. What an idiot am I. Rebel Belle is an absolute delight, and I can’t wait to check out all the rest of Hawkins’s works. Rebel Belle tells the story of Harper, an overachieving southern Belle, who out of the blue, after witnessing the death of her school janitor and being assaulted by […]

Book Review: The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

Book Review: The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

Kasie West is one of my absolute all-time favorite authors, as anyone who has read my blog probably knows. I will pre-order all of her books from now until the end of time, and read them almost as soon as they enter my hands. Such was the case with The Fill-In Boyfriend, which wasn’t only promising me excellent romantic fluff, but also one of my favorite tropes of all time: fake dating. This book is fluffy, awesome, and filled with meaningful character growth. The Fill-In Boyfriend tells the story of Gia, who is dumped… at prom. This was going to be the first time her […]

ARC Book Review + GIVEAWAY: Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger

ARC Book Review + GIVEAWAY: Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger

Lying Out Loud seemed to pop up out of nowhere – and after so long without a YA Keplinger novel, you can bet your ass I was EXCITED AS HELL. Then I got the chance to read this as an ARC that was personally signed to me by Kody herself and *DEAD* Lying Out Loud is cute and funny and happymaking and yayyyyy ♥ So Lying Out Loud tells the story of Sonny Ardmore, a compulsive liar, who sort of accidentally ends up catfishing a guy who she slowly realizes she has feelings for. The unfortunate part of that is that (a) the guy, Ryder, […]

Book Review: Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin

Book Review: Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin

What’s that? A perfect score for a self-published new adult book? YEAH. I’m almost as surprised as you are. But honestly, Catching Liam is basically everything I ever wanted from a new adult novel and it just makes me SO SO SO HAPPY. I should note that prior to reading Catching Liam, I read about 4 other new adult books. I’m binging at the moment. I need the swoons. But whereas all of those previous reads fell to the new adult pitfalls of too sappy, too much sex, too much “sex solves everything”, too much “your love has healed me, let’s be together foreverrrr”, Catching […]

ARC Book Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

ARC Book Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

How to Make Debby Fall in Love with Your Book: a guide, clearly followed by Becky Albertalli Step One: Create a main character. Let’s say his name is Simon and he’s gay but very much still in the closet. Make him witty and lovable, with a compelling voice and keen observations about how sexuality is perceived in society. Maybe make him a drama nerd, for extra relatability points. He’ll steal Debby’s heart in an instant. Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it should be this big awkward thing whether you’re straight, gay, bi, or whatever. I’m […]

ARC Book Review: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

One of my favorite author discoveries in 2014 has to be Liz Czukas – I loved Ask Again Later and Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless – so when she announced a new adult book under a pen name, it was pretty much at the TOP of my wishlist. When Joss Met Matt is banterfluffy perfection, with plenty of swoony sexiness, which all made for the best refreshingly addictive read. So When Joss Met Matt is the quintessential friends-with-benefits romance. Joss and Matt meet in college, and after Joss gets dumped by her loser boyfriend, they come up with the idea of sorbet sex. Their theory […]

Book Review: Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally

I start this review in acute distress because I’M OUT OF MIRANDA KENNEALLY BOOKS NOW AND WAITING IS HORRENDOUS. *cough* Racing Savannah is another excellent installment in her Hundred Oaks series, with another swoony romance and a great southern vibe. The sport in question for Racing Savannah is horseback riding, which is new to me, but opens the door to so much adorableness. Savannah quickly becomes close to Tennessee Star, a tricky horse with an impressive pedigree. He hates men, but loves Savannah, and the two together… So magical! Also, the whole story takes place at a ranch, which means cowboys, which is like… hell […]

Book Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

With so many review copies looming, and many of them being dense fantasies or dealing with tough subjects, I desperately needed something light. Thankfully, Christina gave me all the Miranda Kenneally books to save me on a rainy day. I’d been waiting long enough to finally squeeze Catching Jordan into my TBR pile, and I do not regret forgetting about all my obligations for a day. Yes, I devoured this book in one sitting because it was ALL OF THE ADORBS. First of all, this book is all about football – the American kind that I do not care for. But that didn’t matter. Jordan […]
