ARC Book Review: Just a Girl by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: Just a Girl by Ellie Cahill

As a huge fan of When Joss Met Matt and Ellie Cahill’s YA books (under the name Liz Czukas), I honestly couldn’t resist Just a Girl. But if there’s anything this book has proven, it’s that not all new adult books – even by the same author – are created equal. Sure, there are things that I like about Just A Girl. In fact, the whole music / celebrity aspect of the story would have had me picking this up even if I didn’t know the author’s previous works. There’s something about those kinds of stories that always catches my attention. I just like characters […]

ARC Book Review: Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill

When Joss Met Matt remains one of my absolute favorite new adult books of all time. So, yeah, when I heard Ellie Cahill was coming out with another book, I was practically jumping for joy. (Some air kicks may have been done when I received a review copy.) But anyway, long story short, Call Me, Maybe delivered a few giggles and swoons but did not live up to my (admittedly high) expectations. Call Me, Maybe starts off STRONG. Clementine and Justin accidentally switch phones at an airport and keep in contact until they’re both back home to switch them back. That first part of their […]

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors (2015 Edition)

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors (2015 Edition)

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This was one of the very first Top Ten Tuesday topics I did on the blog – all the way back in 2013. I wrote up my list before looking at that post, and hilariously only ONE author made both versions of the list. I suppose it makes sense – in the meantime I’ve read at least 250 more books and gotten to know so many other authors… and tastes change. These authors I’ve all read multiple books from (if not their entire oeuvres), and something […]

Blog Tour: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

Blog Tour: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

Last year I got my hands on an early copy of When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill (a.k.a. Liz Czukas) and I couldn’t help myself. I read it immediately, regardless of the MONTHS left until its release. I knew I would love it, and I absolutely did, so I’m so happy to get to be a part of the blog tour today! When Joss Met Matt stole my heart instantly with its friends-with-benefits premise. Matt and Joss definitely are great friends, and that friendship only strengthens over the years. They start the benefits side of things to cope with breakups – building on the […]

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 […]

ARC Book Review: Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

ARC Book Review: Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

Earlier this year, I absolutely fell in love with Liz Czukas’s debut, Ask Again Later, so when I got the opportunity to read Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless, I was a bouncing bundle of joy. Though less bantery and wonderfully shippy than Ask Again Later, Top Ten Clues was feel good, happy making, and totally reminiscent of epic ’80s movies like The Breakfast Club. Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless immediately captivated me due to Chloe’s wonderfully refreshing and engaging voice. Chloe, I would argue, has a mild form of obsessive compulsive disorder. She goes through all her life making lists. They’re entertaining and pretty clever, […]
