Book Review : Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

March 18, 2014 Book review 13 ★★★★

I’m not ready to burst in to Fangirl mode for this book but it’s a close call as I really ended up loving it.  I very nearly adored it but I just didn’t quite get there. My Recap of Fangirl: Cath is starting college and as someone who gets anxious… Read more »

Book Review : Dead Dreams by Emma Right

March 10, 2014 Book review 6 ★★

Fab cover but the plot just lost me and the main character was so naïve and gullible that I couldn’t connect. I read this book as part of a blog tour however I have waited until the tour was over to post my review. So for all those wondering if… Read more »

Book Review : Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

Book Review : Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

February 25, 2014 Book review 6 ★★★★

Faking Normal did a great job of capturing a realistic teen’s voice.  It felt raw and honest and while reading I was totally submerged into the pain that the main character felt. First Line of Faking Normal: “Black funeral dress.” My thoughts on Faking Normal: This one is really good! … Read more »

January 29, 2014 Book review 10 ★★★

Remember 3 stars is a good review!  It means I liked it.  Don’t think meh just because it hasn’t got a higher rating; it was one I enjoyed for its unique blend of prose and poetry and its darker than dark tone. First Line of And We Stay: “There are… Read more »

Book Review : Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black

Book Review : Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black

January 22, 2014 Book review 11 ★★½

This review is short and not-so-sweet.  I really, really wanted to like this one as I think the concept of a paranormal ballerina is brilliant.  The ballet world is so magical and other-wordly that it seemed like a perfect backdrop for a chilling, mysterious tale. The ballet world  and the… Read more »

Book Review : The Last Forever by Deb Caletti

January 8, 2014 Book review 2 ★★

The Last Forever is a book about the grief and the endless, never-ending journey you go through after the loss of a parent.  However while the subject was intense, I never fully connected with the characters and just didn’t feel it. First line of The Last Forever: “In those early… Read more »
