This week is so exciting for me because I finally received my FIRST EVER ARC! I’m hoping this is the start of something great and that there will be more to come. I really want to do more book reviews and hopefully get noticed more by other book bloggers, authors, and publishers; not to get free books, but to have my voice heard, that right there is the prize. For… Read more »

 *In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren showcasing all the books we recently bought, borrowed, or received. * I actually had these books for awhile but have been too lazy to post them, haha. I did buy them together though, so it still counts. The funny thing is, I packed all three books into the bag I’ll be using at my mom’s house after… Read more »

 *In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren showcasing all the books we recently bought, borrowed, or received. * I finally got through my last pile of books so I just had to stop by Barnes & Noble to purchase a new pile to dive into. I’ve been adding so many books to my “To-Read” list, I couldn’t wait to buy them. I’ve already read… 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 »

Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★★

I heard about this book since Stephanie Meyer recommended it back when The Twilight Saga was just starting out and I immediately checked out the synopsis to see if it was something I’d be interested in. After finding out it was some kind of “adventure” book I wasn’t really into it. I’m more of a romantic novel kind of person, where the focus in on the two main characters falling… Read more »

Book Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Book Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

Shadowland is the 3rd installment in the Immortals Series by Alyson Noel. This book wasn’t really that great to me, probably because of the struggle of Ever and Damen’s relationship. Here, they have to deal with the consequences of Ever’s (stupid, albeit, understandable) decisions and Roman’s ever-growing presence. In this book I found the characters to be quite annoying, especially Haven, who inevitably plays a bigger role in this series… Read more »
