Filled with Drama & Characters You Love to Hate \\ Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf

My Thoughts: After the massively massive cliffhanger at the end of the first book, Love Me Never, my body was ready for Forget Me Always. I did decide to read this one instead of taking the audio route, simply because there was just no way I could torture myself like that again. And while I really liked this installment in the series, it fell flat for me and not as… […]

Review | Like Candy by Debra Doxer

My take: I really loved Debra’s NA novel, Keep You From Harm, so when I saw Like Candy available for download, I immediately requested it. Her writing is so engaging and pulls you in immediately from the first page. Like Candy was no different. I was actually surprised by a lot of Like Candy. It’s blurbed as a revenge story and while Candy has her moments of pranks and plots […]

Audio Book Review | All We Have Is Now by Lisa Schroeder

My Take: All We Have Is Now was an impulse download on audio. I say this – because it wasn’t one that I had seen MANY reviews on and it wasn’t on my radar in the slightest. Seeing it was narrated by one of my favorites doesn’t hurt either. This book makes you think. If you had one day left on Earth – what would you do? That question sat with […]

Three Reasons You Should Read Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

1. Strong Friendships & Family This group of friends is the real, honest and loving friendships that I LOVE seeing in Young Adult. We see the “fenemies” thing done often, and that is NOT the case there. The four were close before Oliver disappeared – and the three left behind stayed that way. Once Oliver returns, the dynamic is still there it just takes time to get reacquainted and for […]

Review | Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

So. This book. >.< I have seen this everywhere for the past 4 years, since it’s publication. On Goodreads, blogs, the library, book stores. You name it. There is nothing specific that had me holding off to read this. Hype, maybe? It wasn’t the CONTENT – shockingly enough – because I have read my fair share of WHAT EVENS. What made me take the plunge was a fellow blogger that […]

Review | On the Edge by Allison van Diepen

One thing in particular that well, intrigued me, was the statement –  “[…] will intrigue readers of Simone Elkeles.” Hi. I love Simone Elkeles. Perfect Chemistry was one of my first YA contemporary’s read (back in the day) and it will always hold a special place in my heart. Not only that, I am on of those people who have an obsession with the mob, or any organized crime, really. This has YOU […]

ARC Review | Kiss Kill Vanish by Jessica Martinez

Kiss Kill Vanish was one of my most anticipated Fall release titles. I can’t say what exactly piqued my interest and raised my expectations, but I was under the impression I was going to be blow away by this book. And well, that’s not exactly how it happened. Now, this could be because I am currently suffering from one of the largest reading funks I have EVER been in, but […]

The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin | My tribute to Addison

You’ll find that this isn’t a normal “review.” For this post – I write to Addison.   Addison, I’ve been sitting here for about…. 30 minutes over an hour, trying to figure what to say. Good, bad… the ugly. I can’t seem to, though. Which in ironic in on itself. Words are my art. But when it’s there, it’s there. When it’s not? Well, I’m sure you can relate to that. And I […]

ARC Review ~ The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

The Things You Kiss Goodbye took me by surprise. I didn’t have high expectations, and overall, I really enjoyed it. Sure, I had my issues with it and the pacing was sub par, but this book really stuck a nerve, emotionally. But I will admit, this isn’t for everyone. I fell like this book is hard to summarize, especially since I felt that the blurb doesn’t do it justice. There […]
