The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

My love for The Hating Game runs very deep! It easily became a heavy-weight contender for the ‘top reads’ category within 20%, and continued to steal me heart with every page. Every once in a while we find a book that hits all the right spots, as if it were made for us. The Hating […]

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood

Where do I even begin? I can easily see All the Ugly and Wonderful Things used in a literature class. It’s provocative, controversial and has the potential for a lot of discussion. People will love it or hate it. Wavy is a fascinating character. Dysfunctional doesn’t even begin to describe her life. She is mature […]

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Sigh. What a story. It Ends With Us isn’t necessarily my favorite book of Hoover’s, but it may be her most significant book to date and deals with a serious subject matter. This is a story you need to go into without any preconceived notions. I so badly want to delve into details and discuss […]

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

So stinkin’ cute! I’ve adored all of Kasie West’s books and know that I’m going to have a fun time with them. They are some of the few YA contemporaries I can count on. While P.S. I Like You isn’t my favorite of West’s, it still totally delivered. It’s one of those quick, one-sitting reads […]

Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton

Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton

Why? Why, Cream of the Crop? I was so excited and fully expected to love the hell out of you! So it kills me to say this, but … no bueno. 🙁 I absolutely loved Wallbanger and Nuts to pieces, so not being simpatico with this book is a total bummer. Natalie is a character […]

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Dark Matter indeed! After reading the blurb I was fairly certain this would involve an alternate universe or something of the kind. I mean I hoped so anyway. Boy, did I get more than I bargained for. It’s far more interesting and excited than just an alternate universe! And was it ever fascinating! Jason has […]

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

This book tested my patience. In a good way! I was in need of a good mystery-thriller and The Woman in Cabin 10 delivered. It was gripping and had me turning the pages as fast as I could. I cursed myself for not having the ability to read faster. Lo is a travel writer and […]

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

So here’s the thing: True Grit is one of my all-time favorite movies. And I mean the one with John Wayne, not the re-boot I refuse to watch. Anyway, when I saw The Wolf Road described as “True Grit meets The Road”, a psychological thriller with a serial killer, I was all over it! I […]

The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

Oh, how I love this series! Honestly, I always have this sliver of fear every time a new book is released. We’re up to ten books now, and I’m afraid that one of these times I’ll be severely disappointed or find that I’ve fallen out of love with the series. But nope, hasn’t happened. Not […]
