Buns by Alice Clayton

Buns by Alice Clayton

More good times from Alice Clayton! I love her books, but admit the previous book in this series didn’t quite do it for me, so I was a tad worried about Buns. Thankfully, there was no need to worry, because I had a great time with it! We knew this was coming. First Roxie fell […]

Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott

Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott

C’mon, as if I wouldn’t read this book. First of all, the cover = ♥. Second of all, the blurb completely won me over. I will say that the original blurb made it sound more sordid and dark than the current one does. Honestly, I’m not sure if this one would’ve pulled me on board […]

Body Image in Books

Body Image in Books

Okay, I need to discuss rant about something that’s really bothering me lately.

We’re seeing more young woman who are […]

Mars One by Jonathan Maberry

Mars One by Jonathan Maberry

I’ve read a lot of Jonathan Maberry’s books, and he hasn’t disappointed me yet. Whether it’s horror, thriller or science fiction, he always delivers a good story. I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect with Mars One. Was it going to take place solely on Earth? Was there going to actually to be “space stuff”? […]

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

I’ve mostly moved on from YA contemporary. Even authors I once loved have lost some appeal. However, Jenn Bennett does something magical with her books that puts them in a whole other category. And Alex, Approximately showcases that magic. ♥  The setup could’ve easily been a corny disaster, but it’s done very well and realistic. […]

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

Well, well, well … I do believe Tiffany Reisz has made a solid fan out of me. The Night Mark is the second book of hers that I’ve read and love. I don’t know why, but I tend to feel a bit reluctant to read her books because I get the lame-ass idea that it’ll […]
