Book Review: Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

Book Review: Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

I am a huge fan of Emily Giffin books and I’m to say that this book did not disappoint. I love how this story was told in two points of view, by Tessa & Valarie, as it adds great perspective to the story and how their lives unfold and converge. Honestly, I didn’t think that how they would be tied together would play out the way that it did, but… Read more »

Book Review: Gone by Lisa McMann

Book Review: Gone by Lisa McMann

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

This is the 3rd book in the Dream Catcher series by Lisa McMann. This book focuses more on Janie’s past and her inevitable future. As she slowly learns more about her parents and the fate of Dream Catchers, she has a very difficult decision to make and seeing how it all plays out is a must. The pace is slower, not a lot of action because it is trying to… Read more »

Book Review: Fade by Lisa McMann

Book Review: Fade by Lisa McMann

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

The 2nd book in the Dream Catcher series. I have to say that I enjoyed this book so much more than the first and it’s what kept me going and wanting to read the last book in the series. You get to see Janie and Cabel’s relationship develop more and feel their love for one another and how their lives intertwine. I definitely liked the plot of this book, catching… Read more »

Book Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Book Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

The 3rd book in The Hunger Games trilogy. This book is like a frenzy of action, characters, excitement, sorrow, and mystery. The underlying question is “Who is really the bad guy in all of this?” and Katniss has to discover that on her own because she is the ultimate symbol of this revolution and when you finally see Katniss transform from this simple, clueless girl to a shell of a… Read more »

Book Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Book Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

The 2nd book in The Hunger Games trilogy. After reading the first book I was eager to jump into this book and see the fate of Katniss and her love triangle with Peeta and Gale. Honestly, I was never really a big fan of Peeta. Yes, he loved her from the beginning, but I never really saw that love in the romantic sense. In fact, romance was definitely not a… Read more »

Book Review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

Book Review: Beastly by Alex Flinn

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

A classic story with a 21st-century twist. I liked how the story was told through Kyle’s perspective as you see how he transforms both physically and mentally/emotionally. This was a great book, considered more as “light reading” and the style of writing is definitely suited for the younger/teen crowd. The storyline is in-keeping with “Beauty and the Beast”, I especially loved its symbolic rose and the magic mirror, but it… Read more »

Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Adult Book Reviews 7 ★★★★

Since this is a Quartet style book series and since I read them all one after the other, I decided to do a review of them together. Even though each book can stand out from the rest of the series, I thought it would be nice to compare and contrast each of them and then discuss my opinions of the series as a whole. The first book basically set the… Read more »

Book Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate

Book Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate

Young Adult Book Reviews 7 ★★

I’ll tell you one thing, it was the cover that drew me to this book. The image of the sad girl definitely intrigued me and I love the dark, foreboding look it gave off, but that’s where it ends. Of course, I expected another paranormal love story, and I even expected the girl to be a clueless pawn in the “bigger picture”, but usually I’m all about the guy and… Read more »
