ARC Book Review: Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle

ARC Book Review: Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle

I don’t think there will ever come a day when I’m NOT interested in a teenage celebrity romance story. Seriously. The instant I heard about Famous in Love, I knew I’d be reading it. And I knew that, like most of these stories, it probably wouldn’t end well. This really is guilty pleasure territory (though I somewhat hate that term) because it’s so entertaining while at the same time it’s so horribly bad. To be fair, the first half of Famous in Love is really strong, and I was enjoying myself immensely. Paige is a nobody who somehow lands the lead role in the movie […]

Book Review: Shut Out by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: Shut Out by Kody Keplinger

Why does Shut Out get so little love? Admittedly, next to Kody Keplinger’s other two books, this one doesn’t have that same spark of omg-flipping-awesome. But it has a lot of merit, and just like her other books, I enjoyed this romance a whole, whole lot. To think I was expecting it to be really average due to the ratings of my friends… sad! Prospective readers, do not fear! Kody delivers again! Shut Out is another edition of Kody Keplinger clearly proving to the world she knows just what it’s like to be a teenager and what teenagers think/talk about. This book focuses on… sex. At least […]

Book Review: A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

A Midsummer’s Nightmare is going on my favorites shelf. I read this heartfelt and authentic contemporary in one sitting, literally unable to put it down, and I felt the full spectrum of emotions while reading it. I laughed out loud. I cried (for real). This book holds a special place in my heart. Contemporary doesn’t get any better than this. Let me first focus on how relatable this plot was to me, because that is one of the things that really compelled me to keep reading until I was done in the middle of the night. My parents are divorced. It was not a friendly divorce. […]

Book Review: The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger

I am in love with a book and its title is The DUFF. I love this book to pieces. I want to cry over its perfection. I want to marry this book. I honestly couldn’t find a single flaw, so yes, this is going to be a gush fest. You may as well just skip reading this, scroll back up and click those buy links. Because you want to read this. You do. Can we just start with the flawless awesomeness that is Bianca? I love her. She’s down-to-earth, realistic, and relatable. She made me fall in love with her when in the first 20 pages […]

Book Review: This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

Book Review: This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

As a true hopeless romantic, the “normal girl meets and falls in love with a famous boy” story makes my heart flutter. No matter how cliché, I really enjoy reading stories like it. And yet… This Is What Happy Looks Like is just lackluster in everything. This review will contain spoilers. Beware. I just can’t review this book without pointing out the idiotic plot points. So Ellie and Graham meet by accident when Graham misspells an e-mail address. They don’t know who the other is, but they seem to really easily strike up conversations about almost nothing. So Graham, a famous movie star, when in […]

Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a charming, quick, light read for when you’re in that contemporary kind of mood. You can very easily read it in one sitting to cleanse the palate. Obviously, looking at the title, this book is really romance-centric. Oliver is so absolutely charming. The dialogue between him and Hadley is really pleasant and adorable. There were some super touching moments, and my heart melted just a bit at the end. And I mean, I read the whole thing picturing Oliver as this guy, adorable accent included. How can you go wrong? Julian Morris Overall there’s not much […]
