Book Review: ‘The Heartbreakers’ by Ali Novak

Sometimes, like any other book lover, I just need a read like Ali Novak’s The Heartbreakers. It’s fluffy, fun, sappy, and just kind of perfect. Basically, The Heartbreakers is the kind of fun dream that everyone has, whether they admit it or not. Girl meets cute guy out of nowhere. Cute guy turns out to be a megastar. Girl and guy fall in love and a song gets written and everyone lives happily ever after. […]

Book Review: ‘Anything..

Book Review: ‘Anything You Want’ by Geoff Herbach

I feel really, really bad that I couldn’t finish Anything You Want by Geoff Herbach. Let me explain why. At first, I started reading and thought “Wow, this is not what I signed up for at all.” Taco, the main character, has such a childish, naive air about him that I almost felt like I was reading the narrative of a 10-year-old, not that of a high schooler-turned-soon-to-be-father. I just found his character to be […]

Book Review: ‘Yellow Brick War’ by Danielle Paige

If you were looking for Danielle Paige’s Yellow Brick War, the third novel in her hit Dorothy Must Die series, to be the final book that wraps up Amy’s misadventures in Oz, you’d be very wrong. (I know I was!) Instead, I was left with yet another cliffhanger that’s left me dying for more! Just like The Wicked Will Rise, Yellow Brick War starts off right where its predecessor ended. Amy is back in her […]

‘The 100’ Character Book Tag

I’ve decided to try my hand at creating a book tag! Am I any good at it? Who knows. But I know I’ve had fun with it, and of course I just had to mold it around one of my current obsessions, The CW’s The 100. If you haven’t heard of it before, The 100 is (very loosely) based off of a trilogy of novels by Kass Morgan, and revolves around these 100 delinquents who […]

Book Review: ‘My Kind ..

Book Review: ‘My Kind of Crazy’ by Robin Reul

My Kind of Crazy by Robin Reul is not the kind of book you read if you want to feel happy. This novel, while it has its moments of light-hearted fun, gets seriously dark at times. But those dark moments combine to make a compelling story with characters that you genuinely care about. It’s not a page-turner, by any means, but it’ll be a read you’ll finish. Hank Kirby has one goal in mind when […]

Book Review: ‘The Wick..

Book Review: ‘The Wicked Will Rise’ by Danielle Paige

Picking up The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige threw me for a bit of a loop because it had been so long since I’d read Dorothy Must Die, the first novel in this series about a very twisted Oz. But it was one of the best loops that I’ve been thrown through in a while and I can’t help but remember why I loved Amy Gumm and her mission to kill Dorothy Gale in […]

Book Review: ‘Don’t Get Caught’ by Kurt Dinan

Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan was a novel I couldn’t wait to start reading, and it turned out to be one of my favorite books of 2016 thus far. Prank wars, pop culture references, and life lessons fill the pages of this incredibly fun read, and I can’t wait to share with you all of the reasons why this is a novel you need to pick up. Don’t Get Caught is a first-person narrative told through […]

Book Review: ‘I Woke Up Dead at the Mall’ by Judy Sheehan

When I saw the title of Judy Sheehan’s I Woke Up Dead at the Mall, I couldn’t not pick up a copy. And while it wasn’t one of the best novels I’ve read so far this year, it was definitely entertaining and enjoyable enough to stick with. Sheehan’s novel follows the afterlife of Sarah, a young girl who dies after eating mushrooms at her father’s wedding. And what’s even worse, she dies in a mango […]

Book Review: ‘Girl Online On Tour’ by Zoe Sugg

Girl Online On Tour, Zoe Sugg’s follow up to her massively successful first novel, Girl Online, kept the campy, corny feel of its predecessor while expanding Penny’s world view, something I appreciated as a reader. And that’s why Girl Online On Tour works. In this sequel, our favorite klutz Penny gets a taste of her rockstar boyfriend’s life, joining him on a three-week tour across Europe. What 16-year-old girl wouldn’t love that? But what was […]

Book Review: ‘You Were Here’ by Cori McCarthy

I can honestly say that You Were Here by Cori McCarthy was absolutely nothing like I expected, and yet after finishing it, I can’t imagine this novel being anything other than what it is – a heartbreaking, yet uplifting, tale about loss, tragedy, and finding light in the darkest of places. I have to start off this review by stating that my excitement for this novel went IMMEDIATELY through the roof as soon as I […]
