Review: Perfectly Misunderstood by Robin Daniels

Review: Perfectly Misunderstood by Robin Daniels

May 8, 2018 Reviews 0

The Perfect Series is coming to a close with ‘s Perfectly Misunderstood. While I’m sad to see the series end, this book was a perfect conclusion. Featuring two characters who cannot stand each other, Perfectly Misunderstood reminds me a little of a contemporary Pride and Prejudice. Sassy, fun, and oh so sweet, I guarantee you will fall in love with Jayden and Mike’s story. At the beginning of this book, Jayden is struggling. She’s your typical straight-A student who is failing (well if you call C a failing) Spanish. She’s driven and determined, and knows her father will kill her if she doesn’t get that… Read more »

LOVED this book!!! Perfectly Summer by is the third installment in , and this time focuses on Levi London and his crush on his best friend Summer. I’m a sucker for best friend romances anyways so it wasn’t a stretch for me to fall in love with Levi and Summer. Fraught with drama, Perfectly Summer is a sweet read that will leave you smiling long after you finish it. The book begins with Levi excitedly getting off the school bus on the last day of school only to find both his parents at home. His mother is upset, locked in the bathroom. His father… Read more »

Review: Ilyan by Rebecca Ethington

Review: Ilyan by Rebecca Ethington

April 5, 2018 Reviews 2

Perfect companion to ! Ilyan by is the conclusion fans of the series have been waiting for. Not only that it sets up the new spinoff series, making me even more excited than I already was. At the end of Crown of Cinders, readers are left wondering what happened during the years Ilyan was missing. Where was he? What happened to him? What was going on that Jocelyn couldn’t find him? This book answers those questions. Ilyan is not the same person I knew and loved from the original series. He is lost, almost like a young child, and frustrated that his memory is… Read more »

March #2018HW Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

March #2018HW Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

April 2, 2018 Reviews 1

Dorothy Must Die by is one of my all-time favorite retellings of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It isn’t quite a retelling, but more a continuation of Baum’s classic. Amy Gumm lives in a modern-day Kansas before a tornado sweeps her away to Oz. Her whole life Amy has read the story and wished for an escape like Dorothy’s. Now that she has it though, she realizes Oz isn’t what the books told her it was. The reason why is Dorothy. I really liked Amy. She is a girl who has had her fair share of troubles in life. Her father left her… Read more »

Audio Review: The Defiance by A.G. Henley

Audio Review: The Defiance by A.G. Henley

March 8, 2018 Reviews 0

The Defiance never gets old! This is my third time reading ‘s zombie-esque dystopian and first time listening to the audiobook. I love Peree and Fenn, their world, and the fight for a better life. In this installment of the series, Fenn and Peree are back in their villages and must convince their people to return with them to Koolkuna and their protected waters. Fenn is a different person than who we met in the first book. She is more independent now and not afraid to speak her mind. I liked seeing this version of Fenn as she grieves the loss… Read more »

February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

February #2018HW – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

March 5, 2018 Reviews 0

Not what I was expecting, but sometimes that can be a good thing. Crooked Kingdom by broke me and put me back together again. It’s hard to really describe these characters without remembering (with a little horror) that they range in age from 17-20. They are still kids for all intents and purposes, and it hurt my heart every time that fact was thrown in my face. Picking up where Six of Crows left off, Kaz is on the warpath. He has concocted the schemes to end all schemes in order to get Inej back and teach Van Eck a lesson. In fact, Kaz… Read more »

Audio Review: One Blood Ruby by Melissa Marr

February 26, 2018 Reviews 0

I was REALLY looking forward to starting One Blood Ruby by after I had read the first book in the series. I enjoyed Seven Black Diamonds that much! I liked the multiple POVs, the Fae living in the human world, the modern setting, really all of it. So why was One Blood Ruby not as good as I was hoping?! The book picks up pretty much right where it left off. Lilywhite, now Lilydark, is about to be named the heir to the Hidden Throne. However she has some stipulations, namely that she would like to live in both worlds, stop the war, offer protections to… Read more »

Happy Saturday y’all! Earlier this month you voted for me to read Geekerella by , and I’m SO glad that you did. This is a fun book, full of fangirling, fandoms, and a little romance too. If you enjoy contemporary romance, I highly recommend this sweet YA. Geekerella by is a sweet, fun contemporary YA romance centered around fandoms. Elle is a girl obsessed with the cult-classic show Starfield. When the show gets a movie reboot, she is all kinds of excited until she learns that the soap star Darien Freeman is playing the lead. What Elle doesn’t realize though is that Darien is just… Read more »

January #2018HW Review – Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

January #2018HW Review – Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

February 5, 2018 Reviews 4

Y’all I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved Strange the Dreamer by . I fell into this story and didn’t come up for air until it was over. It was everything I’ve come to love about fantasy. There was action, intrigue, mythology, and romance all tied together neatly to create a magnificent story. Lazlo Strange is an orphan raised by monks who escaped to the library to work as a young teen. Lazlo is a dreamer. He pictures the world around him differently. He believes in fairy tales. And he is inherently good. I don’t think there is… Read more »
