ARC Book Review: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

ARC Book Review: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

Book Reviews | October 28, 2013

Hyperbole and a Half is probably my favorite non-bookish blog out there. Allie Brosh is just a genius in her posts, and many of the feelings she expresses in her stories are very relatable. So when I heard a while back that she was getting a book published, I was all kinds of excited. When I saw it was […]

So Halloween is coming up and of course (if I lived in a country that celebrated it) that’s something to be excited about! Haha, okay, I don’t celebrate Halloween, here in the Netherlands, but I did celebrate it as a child growing up in the US, so I have some fond memories there. Thus, when Kara and Lyn […]

Book Review: French Kiss by Sarra Manning

Book Reviews | October 16, 2013

Oh, French Kiss. You adorable little book, you. *pets* I’ll say upfront that I didn’t like French Kiss nearly as much as my all-time favorite, Adorkable. But still there is so much enjoyment in this book, and I am sure by now that Sarra Manning is one of those authors of whom I want to read all their work. […]

*sigh* The hype machine strikes again. I don’t know what it was this time, but… nope. Judging by all the four and five star ratings from my friends on Goodreads, I was kind of expecting my mind to be blown. I was told I would need tissues. Instead, I reached the last page and just had a blank […]
