REVIEW: Never Again

REVIEW: Never Again

I have no idea WTF I just read…. but the whole ride was fun.. I laughed out loud way too many times (and made a lot of people think I was cray-cray on the train ride home). Really enjoyed this…. Minus the parts where I wanted to slap some sense into the MC & go criminal-minds-level […]

REVIEW: How not to Fall

I really, REALLY enjoyed this book. It’s for so many reasons, but let’s see if I can’t to sum it up with this: How Not To Fall is everything, EVERYTHING that Fifty Shades of Grey & all of the subsequent FSOG knock-offs/Raunchy new adult series it inspired tried and failed to be. I’m going to write it again, just so I’m being […]

REVIEW: The Hook Up

As far as heroines go, Anna is the first one in a long time that didn’t annoy the Hell outta me. (not right away at least.) I really wish authors would stop portraying their leading woman as someone with no self-esteem, who needs constant validation from the hottest guy in town. As usual, the portrayal of the […]

REVIEW: How to Break a Boy

This novel got the tear-factory up and running. And yes, it’s true that I’m a TOTAL marshmallow. But I’m also someone who avoids popular books like Fault in Our Stars and anything Nicholas Sparks because I hate when it feels like a story is trying to manipulate me into the FEELS zone. Seriously, Fuck that […]

REVIEW: The Summer of chasing Mermaids

There was a time when I wasn’t quite so stingy with 5-Star ratings. But now that I’ve given up the pretense that I’m going to be a serious book reviewer/blogger (I barely have time to write my own stuff), I’m trying to be fair as I can to those books & series that are without a […]

REVIEW: Four letter word

FULL DISCLOSURE: This is such a quick review (of a book that I really did enjoy) that it’s more about little pet peeves than anything. *Kanye shrug* I’d still recommend it to anyone look for some good ole raunchy-fun. AND HERE… WE… GO!  This story ran a lot longer than it needed to in my […]

REVIEW: The Problem with Forever

  Pushing the limits by Katie Mcgarry is one of my favorite Young Adult stories that I’ve come across in recent years. It wasn’t the most original or even the most exciting, un-put-downable novel I’ve picked up by any stretch but McGarry made me fall in love with all of the characters. Echo and Noah […]

REVIEW: Take Me On

  When I first started reading this I thought this was going to be another miss for me. I loved “Pushing the Limits”, Katie McGarry’s debut novel but up until now all of the additional novels she wrote for this series were hard to get into. But Take me on however, is another win for her. […]
