Blog Tour: Book Review – Clash by Sawyer Bennett

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours 0 ★★★★½

One Line: Talk about HOT and HEAVY! Cal and Macy scorched the pages and then some! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Whoa! Just when you think Bennett can’t get any better or any hotter, she goes and writes something like Clash. Hot damn, this is one is sizzling. Told in alternating POVs, my favorite style, I liked getting to know Cal and Macy. I don’t remember much of Macy… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 33 – Teething or a Virus?!

BG3, Project BG3 0

Well, this was a pretty eventful week in health for BG3. I don’t know whether to chalk it up to teething, a virus, or an allergic reaction, but something’s going on. This weekend BG3 was suffering from major fever woes, although they were only low-grade fevers so I didn’t worry about her having another infection. I figured it was because that one tooth was growing more or that another tooth… Read more »

Book Review: The Book of Ivy by Amy Angel

One Line: A refreshing tale with one heck of a couple that sets it apart from all other Dystopians out today. What I Loved: Ivy. Plain and simple. That girl is just all kinds of awesome and I admired her character so much. Her loyalty was so unwavering, even when it was detrimental to her, she would not budge. And I appreciated her views on how their society was shaped… Read more »

So, I’ve been tinkering away behind-the-scenes on the blog lately. There isn’t anything too crazy, but just little things I’ve been meaning to do for the longest time like: – I FINALLY added icons/graphics for certain features I write on the blog. This is my favorite new thing I’ve done lately. It definitely helps make the blog look a little better, giving default featured images for imageless posts, adding continuity… Read more »

Book Review: Awakening by Shannon Duffy

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A dystopian that didn’t bore me? That’s a winner right there! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Awakening was exactly the kind of dystopian book that I can get into. It’s not too heavy on the frivolous details or info dumps, but filled with engaging characters and action scenes to keep the story flowing quickly and smoothly. Sure, I had some questions about the society as a whole… Read more »

Book Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Book Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★½

One Line: Finch was quite a character and one I really enjoyed getting to know. What I Loved: I really liked being inside Finch’s head. He was such an interesting character and watching his development and subsequent unraveling was what kept me going throughout this book. Although I wasn’t too keen on relating his condition to what happens to him in the end, it was still quite an experience. Maybe… Read more »
