The Hating Game – Sally Thorne

The Hating Game – Sally Thorne

Books were, and always would be, something a little magic and something to respect. The first thing I want to get out in the open for this review is how bad of an idea it is to judge this book by its cover. I have known about this book for months and even with seeing countless glowing reviews from different friends on here, I still thought that I would find it too cheesy because there was no possible way that there was a…

Dating You / Hating you – Christina Lauren

Dating You / Hating you – Christina Lauren

Huge thank you to Gallery Books, NetGalley, and Christina Lauren for giving me the opportunity to read this eARC a few months ago! The following will be an open and honest review. You guys….I have seriously come to the conclusion that I will love every single thing that these two lovely ladies put out. I first read and loved the Wild Seasons books and then quickly moved onto the Beautiful Bastard series which I also devoured. They will never cease…

Roar – Cora Carmack

Roar – Cora Carmack

This was an amazing start to a series that I am already really excited about!! Full, honest review below. Thanks to NetGalley and Tor Teen for giving me a chance to read this eARC! ♥ Okay, on to the goods. When I saw that Cora Carmack had written a YA Fantasy novel I was PUMPED. I’ve read–more like devoured–her Rusk University novels already and was dying for more. The fact that the “more” was a genre that I am especially obsessed…

Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare

Okay. Wow. I don’t even know where to begin honestly. I have been a big fan of the Shadowhunter world from day one. I fell in love with Clary, Jace and the NY crew in The Mortal Instruments and was even more impressed with Tessa, Will, and Jem in The Infernal Devices. While I have slight problems with some of the books, I have read, re-read, and recommended them all over and over again. This book as the start of a new…

Alex, Approximately – Jenn Bennett

Alex, Approximately – Jenn Bennett

The first thing to know about this book is that I sped through it incredibly fast. This is a perfect summer read, or honestly for any time you need a cute little pick-me-up. Before I started, I read that this was a spin on the movie You’ve Got Mail and was half intrigued, half wary. I’ve read books *similar* to this before where a girl and a boy somehow have met online and end up meeting in real life and something always goes…

A Crown of Wishes – Roshani Chokshi

They say the Lord of Treasures hosts a tournament for the very best and the very worst, the dreamers and the broken.  He’ll play a game with you unlike any tournament you have ever played.  You might have to find your true name in a castle of stars, or wrestle your voice from a demon, or sip poison and eat fear… I was lucky enough to have been given a chance by St. Martin’s Griffin to read this before it…

The Summer I Turned Pretty – Jenny Han

The Summer I Turned Pretty – Jenny Han

“You said your first kiss was a boy at the beach when you were thirteen.” “Oh.” I looked up at this face in the moonlight, and he was still smiling. “Guess.” Immediately he said, “The older one, Conrad.” “Why’d you guess him?” He shrugged. “Just a feeling, the way he looks at you.” This is my third time around reading this series and I know without a doubt that it will never get old for me. Unfortunately, though, more often…

A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J Maas

There are a thousand and one things that I could write about this book but I’ll try to keep it this review on the shorter side.  If you’ve read my other review on Throne of Glass, the other series by Sarah J Maas, you should know that I am pretty obsessed with everything that she writes.  There is something so gripping about the characters and worlds she creates and I am usually left reeling after each book.  While this one…
