Book Review: Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Book Review: Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Everyone and their mother said that I would love Magnolia, and everyone was absolutely 100% correct. Once this book was in my hands, I couldn’t help but ditch my towering stack of review books to read it instead – and it ended up being one of the best decisions I made in a while. I devoured it in one sitting, riding the tidal wave of feels, until I finally finished at 2:30 am… and I’m not a late-night reader. Damn this book was good. Now, you’ll probably know how much I love hate-to-love romances. I’ve written a whole post about it, after all. Most of […]

Book Review: One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva

Book Review: One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva

After hearing Michael Barakiva speak at the Teen Author Carnival, I was immediately sold. I needed One Man Guy in my life – and my instincts were 100% correct, because this book was laugh-out-loud funny and adorable and just left me with the biggest smile on my face. The great thing about meeting Michael Barakiva in person, and what convinced me to buy his book, was that I’d already gotten a taste of his voice. He has such a great wry sense of humor that is perfect in this book. And the way this blends with the authenticity of the Armenian culture and all the […]

Book Nerd Problems #25: I’m Cheating On My Book.. With More Books!

Book Nerd Problems #25: I’m Cheating On My Book.. With More Books!

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #25. I’m Cheating On My Book.. With More Books! Up until recently, I had always been a serial monogamist when it came to books. I would devote all my time reading one book until it was finished and then moved on to the next one. BUT. With so many September and October review copies which I wasn’t all enjoying… I’ve started… cheating on my books. GASP. I know. Now, I’m not saying that either book monogamy or book polygamy (if you will) is wrong. It’s […]

Book Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

Book Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

By now, if you follow my blog, you may have realized that I’m really discovering – and loving – the New Adult genre this year. That’s because FINALLY (*stands up and cheers*) NA books like Boomerang are coming out: books that are sexy, fun, flirty, personally relevant with new adult situations/feelings, and not bogged down in drama or trauma. First up is the personal relevance – Boomerang has it a shit ton for me. That’s not to say that I engage in one-night stands, but for the past year, I was a marketing intern! I loved seeing that – in fact, I haven’t really read […]

Book Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

Book Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

So if you know me, you’ll probably have heard at one point or another that I’m seriously obsessed with the webseries The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTube. For those who are unfamiliar (where have you been??!?!) the webseries is a modern day retelling of Pride and Prejudice, which takes place in the form of vlogs in which Lizzie Bennet tells the audience about her daily life and her familial and romantic drama. The adaptation was actually an immersive transmedia experience, using multiple platforms including Twitter accounts for the characters, Instagram accounts, Tumblr posts, etc, in which the audience’s reactions also played a role sometimes. For […]

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

After just fifty pages of Cora Carmack’s debut, Losing It, I knew that I 100% needed Faking It in my life, so I ordered it right away. And this author just keeps impressing me. If all new adult were like this, it could easily become one of my favorite genres. Faking It follows the absolutely awesome Cade, who we got to know in Losing It – where he did not have such a happy ending. In fact, the book is told from the alternating perspectives of him and Max (Mackenzie), a new character who quickly becomes his love interest. Right off the bat I was […]

ARC Book Review: The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

When I first saw The Art of Lainey pop up on Edelweiss, I thought it sounded good and cute, but I wasn’t immediately sold. I put it in the back of my head to check out later. THANKFULLY, the author kept me from making the grievous mistake of passing up on the chance to read this early. She emailed me, asking me to review it, saying that she thought I would like it based on books I had loved, like Meant to Be. Oh man. She’s good. She got me right then and there. And she was not wrong. I loved Meant to Be and […]
