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 & Giveaway – Friction by Sawyer Bennett [CLOSED]

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours, Giveaways 0 ★★★★½

One Line: Another excellent book from one of my favorite authors. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve enjoyed the series so far and Bennett has always been able to balance the legal aspect of the story with the romance and the drama. It’s very apparent in this book, though. The case that Leary and Reeve have to deal with is pretty big and I liked that Bennett was able… Read more »

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: Nuts by Alice Clayton

Book Review: Nuts by Alice Clayton

Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: A lot of fun to read. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’m always in for a good time whenever I read one of Alice’s books. While I didn’t quite love this as much as her Wallbanger series, it was still an all around good read. I love that Clayton mixes humor and romance so well and she’s also able to tell a decent story that revolves around… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review – Forever With You by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Blog Tours, New Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: When JLA wants to do realistic and touching, she does it right. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’m never disappointed when I read a JLA book, especially when it comes to this series. What can I say? The woman knows how to write a romance well. Not only that? She also does Realistic Fiction so well. Add to that her ability to create truly emotional and touching… Read more »

Middle Grade Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

One Line: Definitely better than the first, I really enjoyed this one. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Well, this book has restored my faith in the series and in Segel’s writing skills. The Sleepwalker Tonic was considerably better than the first book. The story was more engaging and interesting. The characters were more endearing and entertaining. The scare factor, just a tad scarier. I loved it. With Halloween right… Read more »

Book Review: Dirty Talk by Megan Erickson

Book Review: Dirty Talk by Megan Erickson

Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★

One Line: Brent was such a sweetheart, I loved him. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Well, Megan, you’ve done it. You’ve gone and created a book and character I can’t help but love. Brent was awesome and I really enjoyed reading Dirty Talk. I was worried when I read Dirty Thoughts, since I didn’t warm up to like everyone else. But I was optimistic and I’m glad I gave… Read more »
