Review: Starstruck by Brenda Hiatt

Review: Starstruck by Brenda Hiatt

  My Review This was a cute little book in the beginning, but it didn’t take long for me to become annoyed with it. I don’t so much think that the problem lies with the storytelling. I have just read a few books that were similar and I liked them a lot more. It’s never good when both the little and big aspect of a book cause you to cringe and roll your eyes. First of all I hated the…

Review: The Freaks of Greenfield High by Maree Anderson

Review: The Freaks of Greenfield High by Maree Anderson

  My Review This was a cute idea for a book but the execution was off. It reminded me a lot of those campy 80’s sci-fi fantasy movies that I love.  It was filled with melodrama, misunderstanding, and over the top action. All those things made The Freaks of Greenfield High a fun and quick read, but the plot and romance fell flat.   Jay is a cyborg who has just been forced to killer her creator/father and go on…

Review: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Review: The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

  My Review The Summer I Became a Nerd should really be entitled The Summer I Learned to be Myself because Maddie didn’t “become” a nerd, she was born that way. Maddie has a minor traumatic experience when she is in middle school that convinces her if she ever wants to be liked by other people, she needs to hide her true self from them. This leads to her double life. By day she is a carefree cheerleader who loves…

Review: The Moon and the Tide by Derrolyn Anderson

Review: The Moon and the Tide by Derrolyn Anderson

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. This in no way effected my opinion of this book.   In The Moon and the Tide, things have gone from bad to worse for Marina and Ethan. Their relationship is tested by both new and old obstacles and they spend a lot of time either fighting for their love or fighting with each other. When they did argue, I…

Review: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

Review: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

  My Review This was such a beautiful book. It was fanciful, romantic, poetic, and thought provoking.   Beauty and the Beast is by far my favorite fairy tale, and I love reading retellings. At this point I consider myself a little bit of an expert on the subject so when I say this was a good retelling, you can believe it. I can’t promise that you will enjoy the book as much as I did because I think it…

Review: Finding Perfect by Kendra C. Highley

Review: Finding Perfect by Kendra C. Highley

  My Review Finding Perfect is a cute, quick read that will delight any YA Contemporary Romance fan. Paige is a perfectionist with a seemingly perfect life. She has successful parents, a popular and beautiful best friend, and pretty much already has the rest of her life mapped out for her. However, this illusion of a perfect life is threatened when “Perfect Paige” meets her nemesis, calculus. The D she is making in Calculus class makes her acceptance to Stanford…

Review: Emma by Jane Austen

Review: Emma by Jane Austen

  My Review It took me a couple of weeks to finish this book because honestly, it could be a little dry and frustrating to read at times. Considering I am someone who reads a lot of young adult fiction, I am used to fast paced and easy reading, and Emma was a lot of things but fast paced and easy are not two words that come to mind when I think about this book. However, some words that do…

Review: Elements (The Biodome Chronicles #2) by Jesikah Sundin

Review: Elements (The Biodome Chronicles #2) by Jesikah Sundin

  My Review I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for and honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion. So far, the Biodome Chronicles is a very fresh take on traditional plots. The first book focused mostly on setting things up, and in Elements the author focuses more on storytelling and progression rather than background and introducing new characters. For that reason, I enjoyed reading this more. I do feel like Elements…
