I began to read this book at around 2AM, seeing as I had it as an eARC and didn't want to sleep. Word of advice: if you don't want to sleep, pick up this book! I was hypnotized from the very first sentence "I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club, and I'm wondering how mermaids … Continue reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli [Review]
Review: Remember Me Always wasn't at all like I expected, in a good and bad way. I thought this was going to be solely a romantically epic story, almost like the soul mate ones. The premise held that promise of heartache and enough swoon to curl your toes while also dreading the chaos that losing … Continue reading Remember Me Always by Renee Collins: Blog Tour and Giveaway!
I have been blessed to encounter Contemporary Romance books this year that I love, this one being a definite 5 stars at the top. Alex, Approximately was hooking from the first page, especially with the many movie references, as well as quotes at the start of every chapter. The main character, Bailey Rydell aka "Mink" … Continue reading Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett [Review]: A Cinematographic & Romantic Wonder
Cam's Thoughts: “It wasn’t enlightenment to live like you had no history and no consequences. The world wasn’t just made out of instants‒it was made out of plans, too, and the ability to learn from your mistakes” I’m a huge fan of cute contemporary YA novels but I don't pick them up very often. The … Continue reading Noteworthy by Riley Redgate [Reviews]: A Musical Journey to Self Discovery
My Thoughts “We’re not Grace Glasser or Eva Brighton. Just Grace and Eva. Two girls who need to feel young and free, need to feel like girls.

Marianne's Thoughts: "For as long as I could remember, I had been apologizing for existing, for trying to be who I was, to live the life I was meant to lead." If I Was Your Girl is one of those books that stays with you a long time after finishing it. It's one that keeps … Continue reading If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo [Review]: All Kinds of Adorable. Pick This Up!
Marianne's Review: I have read other Paula Stokes books before, but I have to admit, that I think this one is my favorite. And when I say “favorite”, I mean one of my all-time favorites. Girl Against the Universe tackles the topic of mental illness so refreshingly well. While other mental illness books are sad … Continue reading Joint Review: Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes
My Review: “You could try me out sometime, you know, with the dating thing.” His tone was teasing. “Who knows? We could fall in love.” This story is all kinds of cute! It’s set in a very quirky town where charms and predictions and magic are an every day occurrence. Every year they congregate in … Continue reading Reviews: Love Fortunes and Other Disasters & First Kisses and Other Misfortunes by Kimberly Karalius
My Review: This book is so brilliant. It battles slut shaming: “I’m energetic. And impulsive. And passionate. But just because I’m all those things doesn’t mean I give my body away like free samples at the perfume counter.” “Even if she did, who cares? It’s not like that would make her bad or stupid or … Continue reading The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen
Even trying to explain why I absolutely disliked this book makes me very very sad. If I Stay, Where She Went, Just One Day, Just One Year, Just One Night, I loved ALL these books by Gayle Forman. All of them. But this book? Nothing. I guess I went into this book expecting something … Continue reading Fashion by the Book: I Was Here by Gayle Forman + Review!
