Book Review: Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★★

One Line: A wonderful ending to a fantastic series that left me thoroughly satisfied. Love me some Daemon Black! In My Opinion: MUST. READ. NOW! Oh boy, what can I say about this book, about this series, except for GET IT NOW, READ IT NOW, THANK ME LATER. Endings are pretty hard to do well, in my opinion. You build up this amazing, gut-wrenching series, and a bad ending can… Read more »

Book Review: Better When He’s Bad by Jay Crownover

Book Review: Better When He’s Bad by Jay Crownover

New Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★½

One Line: What would’ve been a different kind of “bad boy” story, turned into just another typical one. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Oh, how I wish I had enjoyed this as much as everyone else.

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 1

37 Weeks! Which means I am officially FULL TERM. That takes a load off my mind, because I always worry about the baby coming too early. Anyways, interesting fact – I went to the OB last Thursday and we had a conversation regarding my due date and it turns out that based on my last period, it’s supposed to be August 20th. The US said that it’s estimated at August… Read more »

Book Review: Invisible Ellen by Shari Shattuck

Book Review: Invisible Ellen by Shari Shattuck

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A bit of a slow start, but it had some interesting moments. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I have to admit, Invisible Ellen attracted me with its interesting premise, but it was quite the slow read, or at least, a very slow start. You meet Ellen, who is pretty much an introvert on a serious level. She lacks self-esteem, confidence, and basically any motivation to interact with… Read more »
