Book Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Book Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★½

One Line: Finch was quite a character and one I really enjoyed getting to know. What I Loved: I really liked being inside Finch’s head. He was such an interesting character and watching his development and subsequent unraveling was what kept me going throughout this book. Although I wasn’t too keen on relating his condition to what happens to him in the end, it was still quite an experience. Maybe… Read more »

Book Review: King by Ellen Oh

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: An excellent ending to an amazing series that has easily become one of my favorites. I’ve enjoyed this series from the very beginning and I’m pretty sad to see it end. I loved that Oh kept the momentum going throughout the series, keeping me glued to the stories and invested in the characters. Prophecy introduced readers to a great set of characters, especially Kira, and I loved seeing… Read more »

Book Review: Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★

One Line: What started out a little weak turned into a pretty decent read with a strong ending. What I Loved: The best part of this book was easily the Pandoras. I loved them all. Such fun, interesting creatures. Their relationship with their humans reminded me of Pokemon, that’s how I picture their dynamic in my head. Tella definitely reminds me of Ash, how she cares for her Pandora, for… Read more »

This was such a turn around from the first book for me, I honestly wondered if I even read the first book right.

Book Review: Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★

One Line: A detailed and intricate tale of magic and love. What I Loved: This was my first “genie” book, so I really liked exploring this world and how the author wove it into modern day society. These creatures are basically from another world and I liked how fascinated some of them were with our world’s technology, it was funny. It was also interesting how the author created a caste… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway – Collide by Melissa West [CLOSED]

Blog Tours, Giveaways, Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★½

One Line: A strong conclusion to an interesting series. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I loved that West filled this last book with so much action and suspense. Usually, with these last books there’s too much build up, a lot of waiting around and planning, and then things are rushed and action-packed at the very end. Here, West gives us plenty of action scenes scattered throughout the book and… Read more »

I haven’t read anything like it was the setting was refreshing. I loved Jayden in particular though because she’s just a good person.

My heart broke for Josh so many times while reading his chapters. I feel like this story is more about these characters coming to terms with how their lives have changed and figuring out… Read more »

Book Review: The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★★

One Line: Such a cute and fun read. I loved it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Friendship-turned-lovers romance is one of my favorite troupes. I love seeing a couple who are such amazing friends, who understand each other on a different and more meaningful level, fall head-over-heels in love with each other. I think this book had just the right amount of drama, humor, and romance, which is kind… Read more »
