Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Book Reviews | September 14, 2014

Why is this a classic? Why is this one of the “great” American novels? Jesus, did this book make me want to throw my e-reader across the room. I don’t get it. So, a little bit of context: I read this for one of my book club’s classics months. I had heard from multiple people that it’s horrible, […]

Book Review: The Diviners by Libba Bray

Book Reviews | August 29, 2014

The Diviners is one of those books that has been on my TBR list and my bookshelf for AGES, but I just never got around to. And, I mean, really, who can blame me – it’s almost 600 freaking pages. So this is when book club comes in to save the day! Book Club: The Way to Get […]

Travel | July 26, 2014

I hope you all enjoyed part 1 of my adventures in New York earlier this week! But let’s face it: now we’re getting to the main event – the conference itself and all the events and bookishness surrounding that. I hope I can do my adventures justice. Day 5: Wednesday, May 28th Officially, Wednesday was not a BEA […]

Though it was already quite a while ago, this year in May, I went to Book Expo America 2014 in New York. I knowww, I fail at only getting to the recap now, but hey, just be glad I’m doing it. Okay? Today I’ll be recapping the stuff that happened before the conference actually began, as the orange […]

Expectations for NYC/BEA 2014

Uncategorized | May 22, 2014

So, umm, BEA is happening. We are now ONE WEEK AWAY PEOPLE. ALERT. ALERT. I’m pretty sure all fellow attendees are in full fledged panic mode, packing, getting ready to fly (or drive), and getting way too freaking excited about all the epic bookishness about to go down. I have reached levels of being UNABLE TO CAN, but […]

Book Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Book Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Book Reviews | March 19, 2013

After the massive disappointment that If I Stay ended up being for me, I was promised, PROMISED I would like Where She Went better. Well. Just like your promises about If I Stay, this sequel wasn’t able to live up to the hype. I apologize in advance for this disjointed review. I’m not sure when I’ve ever felt […]

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Book Reviews | September 25, 2012

*sigh* – that’s the only appropriate way to start this review. Now I gave City of Bones 3.5 oranges, and was even sort of debating giving it an extra orange, and now I’m thinking that even 3.5 was too many. I’ve reached a few conclusions about why that is: first off, I’ve definitely reached my YA bullshit quota […]
