Ah, young love. There is nothing quite like it, and that’s probably why I read about it so much.

Review: Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley

Review: Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley

  My Review Plot: Defying Gravity is a cute little romantic story about best friends, Zoey and Parker. Zoey and Parker have been best friends since they were in diapers. Their parents are so close that Zoey’s parents bought a vacation home right next door to Parker’s family home. Zoey and her family spend every Spring break with Parker’s family, and that works just fine for him because not only is Zoey his best friend she is also the girl…

Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karol Cozzo

Review: How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karol Cozzo

  My Review I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion. My, my, this was a sneaky little book. When I read the synopsis, I was expecting to laugh, swoon, and maybe even cry a little bit. And while I did do all of those things, I didn’t do them for the reasons I expected.   Cyber bullying is a big deal. There is simply so excuse…

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

  My Review Everything that I didn’t like about this book I’m positive other people love so take this review with a grain of salt.   The author tossed almost all the traditional werewolf folklore out the window, but I happen to like traditional werewolf folklore so it didn’t work for me. I love the fact that Sam wasn’t a typical “pretty boy alpha male with a perfect body”, but werewolf novels are one of the few times that type of…

Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

  My Review This was the definition of a three star read. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like or love it either.  When she is thirteen years old, Ismae is sent to a convent filled with nuns who serve their god Mortain aka Death. She is sent there to avoid a marriage to the old and cruel man her father sold her to. Ismae becomes an assassin and at 17 she is sent on her first  major assignment….

Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

  My Review I have read and enjoyed several Beauty and the Beast retellings so when I say this is one of the best Beauty and the Beast retellings I have ever read, I don’t make that statement lightly.   The author didn’t stick too closely to the source material. Nyx wasn’t exactly beautiful and Ingnifex wasn’t really a beast, but the author made sure to take several elements of the original story and give them a fresh twist. The…

Review: You are Mine by Janeal Falor

Review: You are Mine by Janeal Falor

  My Review Serena lives in a world filled with magic and where women are considered to be nothing more than the possessions of their warlock masters. This was a well written book, but the entertainment was lacking for me. The magic system wasn’t explained in any sort of detail. All I know is that the men are powerful warlocks who seem to feed off the magic the women possess; however, the women never perform any magic themselves. I have…

Review: Tripping Me Up by Amber Garza

One day Tripp accidentally hits Hadley n the face with a wad of paper. After trying and failing to apologize to Hadley several times, Tripp decides that he is intrigued by her and keeps coming up with reasons to talk to her. Soon, intrigue leads to friendship and friendship…

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…
