Book Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Book Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: I loved everything about this book. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve read a few kidnapping books in my past and I have to say that this might be one of the better ones. Most of the time we get the story from the one who was kidnapped, so it’s interesting that Benway told it from the friend’s perspective. With that being said, I loved that she… Read more »

Blog Tours, Giveaways, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★★

One Line: Sweet jeebus, Miranda, what a stellar story you’ve created here! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Jesse’s Girl is, hands down, one of the best books I’ve read this year, maybe ever. I could not stop reading, in fact, I couldn’t stop smiling the whole time I read this book. I seriously want to grab a finished copy and hug it, I loved it so much. Gah! I… Read more »

Book Review: Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

Book Review: Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

One Line: Not exactly what I was hoping for, but still a pretty good read. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Hold Me Like a Breath wasn’t the book I thought it was going to be, but it wasn’t bad. I was hoping for more dealings into this crime lord world, but instead her family is made up of pretty sound and reasonable business people. I felt like I didn’t… Read more »

Let’s Discuss: The Chase

Let’s Discuss: The Chase

Discussions 5

You know what I miss? The chase. I miss reading a book where the actual focus is on a guy chasing after a girl he likes. And I’m not talking about the tried-and-true plot outline that practically every romance author goes for now. I miss the dating, the fun and excitement, the memories, and the good times. Is this something that people don’t care for in books nowadays? I can… Read more »

Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: More contemporary than fantasy, so it was a nice attempt at a magical book. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Becoming Jinn didn’t turn out quite like I was expecting. I was hoping for more from the Jinn/fantasy side of the story and instead we get a more contemporary story than anything else. Yes, the Jinn elements are there, but it’s more so parlor tricks and we’re not… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 46 – She Doesn’t Care for Sand

Project BG3: Week 46 – She Doesn’t Care for Sand

BG3, Project BG3 1

It was so amazing to be back with the family after 3 weeks. It also made me very happy that it didn’t take as long for the baby to warm up to me again. Usually when I leave for a period of time it takes about a day or so for her to cling to me again like she normally does. This time, it happened within a few hours. I… Read more »

Book Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Book Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A well-paced, humorous tale of witches, witch hunters, and other magical creatures. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Witch Hunter was a surprisingly good read. As much as I love reading a book about witches, they’re usually a hit or miss with me, more times it’s a miss. Luckily, this was a hit! The book had a decent amount of humor in it, which when added to the… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

One Line: A captivating and beautiful story that I really enjoyed. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This was undoubtedly one of THE most hyped up books this year and I’m happy to say it lived up to its hype, for the most part. Ahdieh created a very interesting and intricate world and her characters were engaging and fierce. It was hard to follow at times because Ahdieh uses a… Read more »
