Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: Amazing ending to my favorite series. In My Opinion: MUST. READ. NOW! When I think of amazing conclusions, ACOWAR stands out. I simply loved the way Maas bookended so many aspects of this series, in a way that felt right and true to the characters and story line. And yet, she also left so many things open, either for readers to draw their own conclusions (if this was… Read more »

The premise was, but the way the story captures your attention and holds it tightly is all there. I really enjoyed this book. The whole time I read this I kept thinking and dreaming about what it… Read more »

Blog Tours, Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★★

One Line: Completely unputdownable! Such a fantastic and amazing book. In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Nicola Yoon surprised me with her first book, Everything, Everything. I really enjoyed that one. However, she knocked it out of the park with this book. Hands down, The Sun is Also a Star is one of my favorite reads of 2016, and possibly ever.

I loved every minute of this amazing book and this story just keeps getting better. Just like with Illuminae, you’ve got two main characters that come together for a common cause – to fight off the BeiTech bad guys. At first, I was… Read more »

Book Review – It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

New Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★★

One Line: A true page-turner. This isn’t just a Colleen Hoover book, it’s THE Colleen Hoover book. In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Wow! Just, wow! I have been a longtime fan of CoHo since her first days of Hopeless and Slammed, but I have to admit, over the years her books never won me over like those first few did. I still enjoyed all her books and her writing… Read more »

Book Review: Broken Prince by Erin Watt

Book Review: Broken Prince by Erin Watt

New Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Not as captivating as the first, but still pretty good. In My Opinion: Add to cart! After I devoured Paper Princess, I really wanted to get right into Broken Prince and see where Ella’s story would head to next. Ella is still my favorite character by far, but Reed is starting to grow on me and even Easton has shown he has some redeeming qualities. The twins are… Read more »
