Book Review: The Swift Boys & Me by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: The Swift Boys & Me by Kody Keplinger

Book Reviews | August 31, 2014

If you know me, you’ll know that one author I will always shout about, no matter what, is Kody Keplinger. Her young adult novels just have a way of being really emotional for me, and her refreshing voice perfectly conveys messages that I find to be extremely important to teenagers. Each of her books has really touched my […]

Uncategorized | August 30, 2014

Another month has gone by, and I feel like I have enough books for another haul – even though I only bought one book in about 2(!!) months now. You should all be very proud of me. *cough* Um, but yeah, it was my birthdayyyy this month, so I ended up with some nice pretty books anyway, so […]

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 […]

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd. #23. CLIFFHANGERS I’m actually surprised I hadn’t covered this topic already, because it seems like a rather obvious one. But I dunno about you guys – lately, I’ve been hit over the head with terrible cliffhanger after terrible […]

ARC Book Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Biren

ARC Book Review: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Biren

Book Reviews | August 27, 2014

The Vault of Dreamers instantly intrigued me with its premise, which basically promised me some mix of Big Brother and Inception. The result is a really intriguing thriller with some awesome science fiction aspects. However, with a confusing romance and cut-off ending putting me on the hook for a series, it wasn’t quite the total package. The premise […]

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’ve tried to make there be no overlap between this week’s list and last week’s list – because obviously I talked about books I am being forced to read, want to read, and don’t own yet. But so this […]

ARC Book Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

ARC Book Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Book Reviews | August 25, 2014

The Jewel was one of those typical cases for me where I can scream, “THE COVER MADE ME DO IT!” Seriously, much shiny, very want. But I knew before I got into this that it most likely would not end up going very well for me – for one thing, the book is blurbed in comparison to The […]

Book Review: The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Book Review: The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Book Reviews | August 24, 2014

The Archived is one of those books that has just consistently been raved about since it came out. It was also one of those books that I had oddly written off – I didn’t think it would be something for me because, like, ghosts? Really? WELL DON’T I LOOK STUPID NOW. The ever fabulous Gaby forced me to […]
