Book Haul #37: Full O’ Faves

Book Haul #37: Full O’ Faves

Books | August 20, 2016

This month I showed RESTRAINT! Superb restraint. But of course, there were some new releases that I pre-ordered forever ago from some of my absolute favorite authors. I regret nothing. Purchased Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling: It’s ridiculous how long it took my pre-order to come in, but once I had it I read […]

Book Review: Run by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: Run by Kody Keplinger

Book Reviews | August 18, 2016

Ever since I first read The DUFF – which, incidentally, was one of the first books that got me into YA contemporary romances – Kody Keplinger has been one of my favorite authors of all time. Obviously, that means that I have rather high expectations, and reviewing books when they don’t live up to those expectations is ridiculously […]

Book Review: Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

Book Reviews | August 13, 2016

If you’ve been around for a while, reading my reviews, you’ll probably know that Miranda Kenneally is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. Her books are always perfectly timed, because if anything, they’re the perfect summer reads. But, this being the 7th book, it figures that at some point, she’d resort to tropes that are less my […]

Book Review: Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw

Book Review: Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw

Book Reviews | August 11, 2016

Hand me a premise involving fandom and fanfiction, and I’m on the hook, man. It’s no exaggeration that that premise made Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here my most anticipated debut of the year. But, sadly, this book wasn’t quite like I expected. Scarlett is an introverted, fandom-loving loner. She doesn’t have a lot of real life friends, and […]

ARC Book Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Book Reviews | August 6, 2016

Let me start by being completely upfront with you guys. I first read this book last year as a beta reader, and I am now writing my review after having read an advance review copy, so I’m familiar with this story and have seen it develop over time. Paula Stokes is a dear friend. But my blog is […]

ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Book Reviews | July 28, 2016

I did it. I killed the beast – this 600+ page monster of a novel. It took me three weeks to get through it not only because Pokémon Go was released in the same time. And it pains me to say it, but I do feel like it was a waste of those three weeks. When I saw […]

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Graphic Novel Review: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Book Reviews | July 23, 2016

The hype for Nimona started long before it was published as a book. Several of my friends were already raving about it as it was gradually being posted online. That plus Noelle’s STUNNING drawing style made this a graphic novel I definitely could not resist. And I can say with certainty that I feel it deserves the hype. […]
