Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

Holy crap, do I ever LOVE THIS BOOK TO PIECES! So, so much because of the phenomenal characters, the dialogue, the different relationships, the amazing setting that’s near & dear to my heart (camping in the Sierras, baby!), and many more reasons. I honestly don’t even know how to adequately convey how wonderful Starry Eyes is. […]

Bad Girls with Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Bad Girls with Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

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. […]

Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson

Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson

So. Servants of the Storm. Not exactly what I had expected. I was expecting a creepfest of a story, but that wasn’t really the case. And the ending. Grr. Here’s the thing, I did like the book to an extent. It had that something that made me want to keep reading, but it didn’t elicit […]

Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young

Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young

I declare Just Like Fate as one of my best impulse buys this year! I can’t even tell you how much I love the whole sliding doors concept. Books set up with two different alternating timelines are some of my favorites to read. This isn’t a parallel universe type thing, though, just a look at […]

The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler

The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler

“Hey Jude, don’t make it bad, Take a sad song and make it better…” Sorry, couldn’t resist. What a beautiful story! The Book of Broken Hearts is the first book I’ve read by Sarah Ockler and she has definitely made a fan out of me. This is far from being just another romance between a […]

Never Enough by Denise Jaden

Never Enough by Denise Jaden

  When I read the description for Never Enough, I was expecting to go on an emotional rollercoaster.  In fact, I buckled-up and looked forward to it.  Unfortunately, it was mostly boring.  I seriously contemplated quitting the book, but after I got to a certain point, I was already invested and had to finish. The […]

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Loved this book! It’s funny, cute, and creepy; how could this not be a fun book? Unraveling Isobel was one of those books that I almost didn’t read, but changed my mind at the last minute.  Then it ended up keeping me awake until 1:30am doing the must-read-just-one-more-chapter thing. Poor Isobel had to leave her […]
