Blog Tour: Book Review – Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

Blog Tour: Book Review – Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

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

One Line: I couldn’t stop reading it. So good! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Anyone who knows me knows that Contemporary YA is one of the hardest genres for me to get into. I just can’t seem to connect to the characters, the romance is off, and the plot just doesn’t move the way I like. I kind of made my peace with the notion that this just wasn’t… Read more »

Book Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: Daemon Black has my heart! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve SO been waiting quite awhile to see the story between him and Katy unfold through his eyes. Oblivion was every bit as comical, sweet, rage-inducing, and heart-warming as any Lux fan would come to expect from someone like Daemon Black. I loved every minute of being inside Daemon’s head, particularly when it came to Katy. It… Read more »

Book Review: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Book Review: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★★

One Line: Utterly engrossing and unputdownable! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! As much as I loved the first book, the second book was just as amazing, if not slightly better. There is a lot more action, we delve deeper into the sci-fi, the lines of love and family get blurred in all kinds of way, and we visit plenty of unique and interesting dimensions. It’s been getting exceedingly harder… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway – Diamonds Are Forever by Michelle Madow [CLOSED]

Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway – Diamonds Are Forever by Michelle Madow [CLOSED]

Blog Tours, Giveaways, Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A nice end to an entertaining series. In My Opinion: Add to cart! There’s plenty of drama and excitement for the Diamond sisters in this last installment. It was nice to see how much growth each of the girls went through, some more than others, and nice to see them get their HEAs. Courtney still shines as my favorite and the one I connect with the most. Peyton… Read more »

Book Review: The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel

Book Review: The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

One Line: Oh, my Bishop. I need more of him! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Bishop was all kinds of amazing in this book and I fell more in love with him. His patience and dedication towards Ivy knows no bounds. Once he loves you, that’s it. There were so many times where I was at the edge of my seat, wondering if he would crack or stick it… Read more »

Book Review: Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young

Book Review: Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★½

One Line: It wasn’t as spooky as I was hoping for. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I’m a fan of Young’s, I’ll admit, but this book missed the mark for me. My biggest struggle with this book was that it took entirely too long to get to the point and there wasn’t nearly enough of the ghostly/spooky variety that I was hoping for going into this book. I’m beginning… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review – Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Blog Tour: Book Review – Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

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

One Line: I loved every minute of it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! It might throw some people off the way this story is told, through online conversations, emails, and private files, but I think this was exactly the kind of read I needed at the moment. It was enough to get the story across without it being overkill. The changes from IMs to emails to status reports, etc… Read more »

#WickedReads Book Review: Survive the Night by Danielle Vega

#WickedReads Book Review: Survive the Night by Danielle Vega

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Some gore. A lot of unanswered questions. In My Opinion: Worth a try! While Vega’s first book didn’t wow me like I was hoping, she was definitely good with the gore factor and she does it again here. I loved her descriptions of the death scenes and her attention to the gruesome details kept me engaged and entertained. I don’t know what that says about me in particular,… Read more »

Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

One Line: A unique and interesting book that’s pretty hard to put down. What I Loved: Maddy was the star of the book and I genuinely liked her. Her view on the world, limited as it was, was great. She’s book lover, so that’s already a plus in her favor. She also has a Tumblr book blog and her one-lined reviews were spot on and entertaining. I also really loved… Read more »

Book Review: Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales

Book Review: Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★½

One Line: Not exactly what I was expecting, but not bad. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I think based on the synopsis, I was expecting something different. Whoever wrote that is painting a more whimsical and charming story than what you get. The book wasn’t bad, just not great. I honestly thought I was going to get some kind of self-discovery adventure with the main character visiting a new… Read more »
