[Review] Unknown by Wendy Higgins

23 August

There is something truly terrifying about an apocalypse setting that scares and fascinates me at the same time.  I think Wendy Higgins did a good job of building a truly scary world in Unknown.  I finished this book in two days.  I only put it down to sleep.  Even when I put the book down I still kept think about how frightening this book actually was.     Unknown starts out like any other contemporary love story.  A girl grows up with her brother and his best friend.  Then the brother’s best friend becomes her friend as well.  Of course,… Read more »

I loved Every Last Word! This book was one of those reads that put me through the feels ringer and I loved every minute of it. I cried, I smiled, and I cheered. I was just going to read a couple of chapters on Sunday but before I knew it was three p.m. and I had read the entire book. It was just that good that I could not put it down. Now I am about to explain why I liked this book and there might be spoilers. I don’t want to put any down but I can’t explain some… Read more »

When I finished this book it was with thoughts of hope. I think that is what I liked best about this book, because it was about hope.

Hope that everyone could be able to, after ten years, move past something so terrible. Emmy & Oliver is about two teens that reconnect and find love after one of them, Oliver, is kidnapped. Everyone expects Oliver to just fall right back in with his… Read more »

When I first started reading this book it didn’t take long to figure out Finch’s mental health issues reminded me of someone I know. I didn’t think I would like this book because I usually don’t like reading books with characters that hit a little too to home to be comfortable. This is not something I always discuss with strangers but I have a parent that was eventually diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Growing up we didn’t know what it was so the extreme mood swings were normal just like they are for Finch’s family. It is not the family’s fault… Read more »

[ARC Review] Alienated

28 January

I started this book when I was on vacation and I ended up really liking it.  I was on a cruise boat, and I found this book provided just the right kind of vacation reading.  The story is light, full of action, and of course there is kissing.  It was one of those reads that drags you in and doesn’t let go until the end.  For me, I found Alienated by Melissa Landers quite a fascinating read. The book is set in an alternate reality where aliens have made contact with Earth.  This alien race shares DNA with humans. They even look like humans… Read more »
