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 »

Book Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Book Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

One Line: I’m definitely sighing for Kai after this. What I Loved: Kaiden. DONE! Ok, I know that’s not enough. But seriously, that boy knows how to make me swoon! I’m a sucker for being in a guy’s head when it comes to reading and I loved seeing the his and Anna’s story through his eyes. Seeing his feelings for Anna change so drastically, and with good/believable pacing, made me… Read more »

Book Review: The Remedy by Suzanne Young

Book Review: The Remedy by Suzanne Young

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

One Line: A slow starter, but when things get going it turns amazing! In My Opinion: Add to cart! It’s been way too long since I a book by Young and I’ve been meaning to for the longest. I’ve been a big fan of her writing since her first book and I don’t know why I never got around to checking out her new series. The synopsis for The Remedy… Read more »

Book Review: Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A satisfying ending in all parts except the romance. In My Opinion: Add to cart! The ending of a series is always bittersweet. As always, I flew through yet another of Jen’s books and it’s safe to say the woman hasn’t quite lost her touch. When she wants you to feel something, dammit, she’s gonna make you feel it. Emotions ran high and all the feels were brought… Read more »

Book Review: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Book Review: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

One Line: Quirky and entertaining. I really liked this one. Ah, the YA Contemp genre, always a fickle one for me. I have to be extra careful about what I choose to read and review in this genre because most are misses. I had never read anything by Alsaid before, but after hearing a lot of positive things about his writing and his previous book, Let’s Get Lost (of which… Read more »
