[ARC Review] When It’s Real by Erin Watt

I don’t think I have stayed up all night reading a book in one sitting in a while. I have to say after my all night binge read, When It’s Real is fantastic!     I have to admit I really wanted to read this book because I love Erin Watt. I know the description sounds really cheesy almost like Justin Bieber fan fiction. I am here to say that this book is super good and super addictive. I fell in with Vaughn and Oakley so much that I could not this book down. Even though this book is about… Read more »

I liked Optimists Die First but I didn’t love it was a solid 3.5 star read. It is a story about grief. It is a story about the guilt we feel after grief. It is a story about the coping mechanisms we develop to deal with grief. I think the story handles the grief aspect very well. Because, one thing is for certain grief changes a person. I will get personal for a minute. When I was 11 my grandpa was diagnosed with cancer. For three years I watched him try to fight it, struggle with and eventually die from… Read more »

There are two things that I will always watch or read about: Victorian London and Jack the Ripper. When I saw the synopsis for Stalking the Jack Ripper I was like sign me up because I am definitely reading that book! I was sold on this book by the synopsis alone, I mean who doesn’t want to read about a young woman of society bucking tradition to become a female forensic scientist. Her first case study just happens to be the Jack the Ripper. I thought I couldn’t want to read this anymore than I already did then they released… Read more »

I just have to say Defending Taylor didn’t disappoint. I read this book in one day. It is one of those short breezy books that grab you and don’t let go until the end.       I once heard someone I think it was another adult, say they didn’t like read because the parents are never around or they look stupid. I didn’t know what to say to that because it is true the parents are hardly ever around in YA. You know what I say now: so what. Even in Gilmore Girls Rory had to go off on… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

I tried to read this book several times and just never could get into it. I mean I really tried. I feel like I have been reading this book for forever. I felt like if I could just get into then I wouldn’t have to DNF it so I put it on the back burner for a while. So, I decided to go ahead and use an audible credit and give The Shadow Queen another chance. I can say I am proud of myself for finishing The Shadow Queen this time. This audiobook felt like it took forever to get… Read more »

[Review] This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

I like horror movies and TV shows. One of my favorite movies is Jaws. The Walking Dead and Supernatural rank high in my all-time favorite TV shows. You would think that would mean I like horror novels too. Wrong. I am very picky about the any scary book, or a book that I think might be scary, I pick up. The reason: I guess when I read and I get so invested in a story I just want to be somewhat sure there is going to be a happily ever at the end. I gave This Savage Song a chance… Read more »

[Review] The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

First off I have to say, oh man, this book was good.  A coworker of mine asked me what this book was about the other day.  I said it was a coming of age with some romance thrown in.  She said it sounded predictable.  You know what that is not bad thing.  I like that this book was predictable and I knew that no matter what happened in between the heroine was going to make it through. The Problem With Forever is about a girl named Mallory and Mallory has had really tragic past.  She was a foster kid who… Read more »

The first thing I said when I finished this audiobook was, “thank goodness I made it to the end”. So, I first tried to pick up The Marked Girl when I received a copy from the publisher about a month ago.  Sadly, I just couldn’t get into this book so I put it to the side.  Then when I saw the audiobook was on Audible, I was like perfect now I can have someone read it to me. I was hoping maybe that would make my reading experience go faster. Again sadly that wasn’t the case. Amanda Dolan the narrator… Read more »
