Book Review: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack

Book Review: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack

Book Reviews | August 2, 2014

After reading and loving both Losing It and Faking It by Cora Carmack, I was convinced: this lady knows how to write New Adult that absolutely works for me. While All Lined Up doesn’t reach the same level of personal significance and relatability to me, it is a great, light read with Carmack’s reliable refreshing voice. The first […]

ARC Book Review: Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

ARC Book Review: Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

Book Reviews | July 21, 2014

Miranda Kenneally’s books have been recommended to me time and time again by the lovely Christina, so while it may seem weird to you that I would read the 5th book in a series first, I promise it’s not actually that strange. Though Hundred Oaks is a series, they are more companion novels than true sequels to each […]

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

Book Reviews | May 19, 2014

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 […]

Book Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Book Reviews | May 16, 2014

The new adult genre and I have a pretty complicated relationship. Well, as far as relationships go. I mean, I think I can still count the number of new adult books I’ve read on one hand. But the ones I’d read did not really entice me to go back for more. New adult, until now, has pretty much […]

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Book Reviews | December 2, 2013

If you’ve been around the reading community for the past 3-4 months, you’ll have heard about Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It was inescapable. The hype was everywhere. Everyone was buying it. Everyone was reading it. Everyone was rating it 4-5 stars. Despite me having pre-ordered it, thanks to the wonderful (read: awful) service of the Book Depository, it […]

ARC Book Review: Parallel by Lauren Miller

ARC Book Review: Parallel by Lauren Miller

Book Reviews | May 5, 2013

Parallel is an absorbing, touching, and heartfelt read that completely surprised me. It may have some issues that keep it from being perfect, but for me the enjoyment factor was through the roof. The main character, Abby, is an example of a flawed, sometimes dumb, sometimes fickle main character that works. I may have questioned her at times […]

Book Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Book Review: Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Book Reviews | January 16, 2013

This is my first adventure with Gayle Forman but I absolutely loved it and will be checking out her other books really, really soon. It’s just a beautiful literal and figurative story of finding yourself and finding love. It pulled at my heartstrings constantly, made me laugh, giggle, flail, and produce some tears. And this from one who […]
