Blog Tour: Book Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Blog Tour: Book Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Blog Tours, Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★½

One Line: Fan-freaking-tastic! Just as amazing as the first book! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Kaufman and Kristoff have blown me away yet again with Gemina. 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

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 »

There are good and bad things about anthologies and I think as long as you keep this in mind going into, then you’ll appreciate it for what it is. The good: Reading a bunch of short stories, some from your favorite authors, all based on a common theme so you get a well-rounded… Read more »

Book Review – Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

Book Review – Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: Some good moments, but not my fave from Katie. In My Opinion: Worth a try! After my mixed thoughts on Nowhere But Here, I was hoping this series would be redeemed with Walk the Edge, and while there were certainly entertaining moments, overall, I’m very blase about this series in general. So much unnecessary drama! Right from the start, I could not stand Breanna’s family, if you could… Read more »
