Review: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

Review: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

Falling into Place has a lot of fantastic reviews going for it and some sprinkling of bad ones on Goodreads. I was pretty excited to start this book and was expecting an If I Staylike feel to it, which you do get. However, I will say right now that Falling into Place does not do it better or even close to the way that If I Stay rips your heart out, stomped on it, put it back in only to repeat the…

Review: Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

Review: Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

This is the second book by Liz Czukas that I’ve read and the second one did not let me down. I loved it as much as I loved Ask Again Later. This book had me hooked from the get go. I say that a lot, I know but, this is true. If I don’t feel hooked from the beginning of a book it just puts a downer on the reading experience.

We start with getting to know the main character, Chloe. Chloe loves…

Book to Movie Review: The Fault in Our Stars

Book to Movie Review: The Fault in Our Stars

Fault_in_our_stars_movie

The Fault in Our Starshas been out for awhile in book form and it was very exciting when the news was that it got picked up as a movie. Fans couldn’t wait for the movie to come to the big screen because the book was pretty amazing. I absolutely adored the book when I read it and was a pretty excited as well. I watched this movie a couple of weeks ago and figured since I’m in a bit of a reading…

Review: Blackbird by Anna Carey

Review: Blackbird by Anna Carey

The synopsis of this book and the cover caught my eye when I looked at the review copy on Edelweiss. Then when I finally was going to read it, I read a lot of mixed reviews. A little skeptical going into it, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t start out with good thoughts though as you can tell from my first Goodreads status update on the book.

I believe this was my first book that I read in…

Kiddie Corner Reviews: Babar’s Rescue by Laurent De Brunhoff

Kiddie Corner Reviews: Babar’s Rescue by Laurent De Brunhoff

I have to start this by saying that I’m not a huge fan of Babar. I don’t really have a reason why but, I just don’t like the elephant at all. I tried to get the kid to pick a different book in the library but he really wanted this Babar one. Begrudgingly I read the book and surprisingly I didn’t hate it as much as I expected.

The kid really liked this story though and that is all that matters,…

Review: Lost in Me by Lexi Ryan

Review: Lost in Me by Lexi Ryan

This was a free book on Amazon when I got it and the synopsis sounded very interesting. Amnesia, love triangle, a bit of mystery thrown in and it makes a good story.

Hanna has fallen down the stairs, so it seems, and is struck with amnesia that has her not remembering the last year of her life. Unfortunately, for her, the last year of her life was pretty eventful. She wakes up and has a new body…

Review: Scandal in Seattle by Nicole Williams

Review: Scandal in Seattle by Nicole Williams

Here is the second short story in the Great Explotations series by Nicole Williams. This is a continuation of where Mischief in Miami left off and unfortunately this one isn’t very long at all. It is even shorter than the first book and although it was really good and I enjoyed it, it kind of felt like it could have been longer and not just a tie in to the third book in the series.

Sienna, known…

Review: Mischief in Miami by Nicole Williams

Review: Mischief in Miami by Nicole Williams

I have read plenty of books by Nicole Williamspreviously and have liked her books quite a bit. I started Mischief in Miami one morning because I didn’t have my Kindle Paperwhite on me and my husband had to go to an appointment while I sat in the car and waited. Perfect time for reading since the kid was in daycare at the time. So, why not start a short read? This book was (and still is at the…

Review: How to Date a Nerd by Cassie Mae

Review: How to Date a Nerd by Cassie Mae

I want to start this by saying that I read this book awhile ago and I’m just getting to writing this review. I’m a horrible reviewer but you know, stuff happens and I won’t apologize for life and laziness. This is a hobby after all, not a job. So there’s that.

This isn’t my first Cassie Maerodeo so I went into this figuring I was going to adore this book. Sadly, while I liked How to Date a Nerd,…

Review: The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

Review: The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

The Truth About Alice was a pretty good book and I liked the style that it was told in. I loved the fact that this book was about Alice herself but you don’t actually read anything from her point of view until the very end. It was quite a way to put a story where all this stuff was being talked about her but the main character isn’t there to tell her side and let you know what is going on or what…
