ARC Book Review: This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

ARC Book Review: This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

I was already a fan of Emma Mills’s first book, First & Then. It was cute and happy and romantic, and so I thought, this is an author I should keep an eye on. I did NOT think that she would level up so supremely for her sophomore title. This Adventure Ends is heartfelt, lovely, and so, so meaningful. Sloan is a soul friend. I mean this in the sense of the side characters that she befriends, but also because she’s such an understandable and relatable character. Her voice is awesome, and her personality is one that just instantly draws you (and other people) to […]

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Since reading Since You’ve Been Gone, Morgan Matson has pretty much gotten on my auto-buy author list. Especially when her covers turn out to be LITERALLY CUTE AS PUPPIES – LIKE, WITH ACTUAL PUPPIES. I mean, I couldn’t picture a book more fluffy and all about summer fun times – and that’s exactly what this book was. It was DELIGHTFUL. The Unexpected Everything is about Andie, the daughter of a Congressman, who has always been about intense future plans living up to the stringent ideals that her dad’s job kind of foists upon her. So her plan for the summer was to do a pre-med […]

ARC Book Review: The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen

ARC Book Review: The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen

Last year, Rachael Allen’s debut got a pretty mixed response within the YA blogging community, but as my closest friends loved it, she definitely got on my radar. So when The Revenge Playbook popped up on Edelweiss, with the premise being female friends teaming up to take revenge on the football team, I couldn’t resist. It sounded like just the kind of summer fluff I needed in my life. And I was 100% correct. This book is absolutely excellent. The Revenge Playbook tells the story of four unlikely friends, Liv, Peyton, Melanie Jane, and Ana, who spontaneously team up against the football team. Why? The […]

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Oh, oh, The Winner’s Crime. This is certainly one of the most hyped up young adult series at the moment, and yet again I find myself not necessarily the black sheep – because I do like it – but the puzzled sheep, who really doesn’t understand the raving love for this series. With a slow, slow plot of convenience, with far too much focus on a romance I don’t ship too much, The Winner’s Crime was enjoyable but suffered a bit from middle book syndrome. I think I should be upfront with my main stumbling block for this series: I’m not really invested in the […]

The Keys To My Heart #10: Father-Daughter Relationships

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the bookish things that steal my heart. #10. Father-Daughter Relationships This is a topic that I’ve been saving up for a rainy day, but the time has come. I like my fair share of contemporary reads. I not only like them for the romance though – character growth and family dynamics are just as important. But nine times out of ten, what can absolutely slay me is beautiful father-daughter relationships. On A Personal Note It’s no big mystery to me why this element can inundate me with feels. My dad is probably the most important person […]
