Imprudence by Gail Carriger

Imprudence by Gail Carriger

August 10, 2016 Reviews 0 ★★★★

After binge-reading the Parasol Protectorate and Finishing School series by Gail Carriger last year, I was really excited to be back in this wonderful steampunk world! What I Loved: The cameos! There is Alexia and Lord Maccon, Biffy, Lord Alkedama, and even some people from Parasol Protectorate who you thought you might never see again. I especially love seeing Rue interact with her parents 1) because I can’t get enough of them and 2) because I enjoy seeing how different and similar she is especially in comparison to Alexia! The humor – It’s the dialogue, the witty banter, all the tea and discussions… Read more »

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | A Spoilery Review

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | A Spoilery Review

August 2, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★★★

I have WAYYYY too many feelings about this book/script that I just can’t hold back the spoilers. Before I bid the spoiler-adverse folks adieu, I would like to say that I really did enjoy the book because it brought me back into the world and I LOVED the new characters. However, I’m not in love with this story as much as the other books because the overall plot line frustrated me at times. Okay now, if you haven’t read the book or seen the play, farewell! First, I just have to get some ranting out of the way. Even if it seems like… Read more »

The Sun is Also a Star

The Sun is Also a Star

July 27, 2016 Reviews 3 ★★★★½

Okay so I know this doesn’t come out until November, but I just needed to share it now because I’ve been slumping lately and this book is just AMAZING. What I Loved The story-telling. This story is told in such an interesting way. It basically takes place within the span of the day, following the two main characters in alternating POVs BUT then there are also chapters giving insight to various other characters like the security guard, a lawyer, a receptionist. Even chapters explaining a scientific theory. It’s just really cute. The slow-burn/ instalove thing going on. It’s kind of… Read more »

Review: Size 12 and Ready to Rock (audiobook)

Review: Size 12 and Ready to Rock (audiobook)

June 29, 2016 Reviews 2 ★★★★

So I’m pretty sure that this is only my second audiobook review (first one HERE). And it was an interesting experience to say the least. I’m not 100% sure if it increased or decreased my enjoyment levels of Size 12 and Ready to Rock, but it definitely made things different and kind of made me view characters in a new light. But more of that later. I think what I enjoyed the most was that the mystery of the book hits a bit closer home than the other ones did and because of that we see a different side of Tania… Read more »

Review: The Crown

Review: The Crown

June 15, 2016 Reviews 1 ★★★½

I hate calling the Selection series a guilty pleasure because it truly has some wonderful moments, so I don’t want to discount it. Maybe one of the reasons why I think this series leans on more of the guilty pleasure side of things for me is that there are just some things I overlook so that I don’t get caught up in critiquing it, and can just focus on enjoying it for what it is. That all said I really enjoyed The Crown! The Crown by Kiera Cass What I liked: Ah the feels | Towards the end of the book I… Read more »

Catching Up: The crazy chaos that is moving

Catching Up: The crazy chaos that is moving

May 25, 2016 Challenges, Updates 3

Catching Up on Life It seems like any time things have really slowed down in my blogging and reading life it’s because my life is just insanity. Plenty of good things  have happened since the last time we caught up, but family drama and extreme amounts of travel have left me drained. And even though this next month or so is probably going to be extremely busy due to more travel and packing up and moving half way across the country, I’m determined to let you all know what’s been going on: (Sorry in advance for the novel below) – One of my… Read more »

Review: Boomerang

Review: Boomerang

April 15, 2016 Reviews 4 ★★★★½

This book is the swooniest, steamiest, and definitely my kind of New Adult fiction. Seriously, though I tend to struggle with NA books, but this one does everything right. What I Liked Both of the main characters had distinct ambitions. Ethan is just trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life and is struggling with money. Mia knows what she wants in terms of her career, but she’s still trying to figure out her artistic voice. They both have reasons for wanting the job at the end of the internship. There is relationship baggage. Mia and Ethan… Read more »

Review: Once Upon a Dream | Giveaway

Review: Once Upon a Dream | Giveaway

April 12, 2016 Reviews 3 ★★★★

I had kind of a slow start to Once Upon a Dream, but once it got going I really enjoyed this twisted version of Sleeping Beauty. My Review My main struggle at the beginning of the book was figuring out exactly what was supposed to be the dream and what actually happened to Aurora Rose. In hindsight, it definitely made me sympathize with Aurora Rose because she kind of goes through the same struggle trying to figure out what is the truth within her dream world and the real world. But after the first 100 pages or so, I definitely… Read more »

Review: Truthwitch

Review: Truthwitch

April 7, 2016 Reviews 2 ★★★½

It feels like I have been hearing about Truthwitch FOREVER, there was soooo much hype for it. And I the premise sounded right up my alley, but I got a little nervous about some of the mixed reviews I was seeing, and even though I had a slightly rocky start to Truthwitch I’m happy I stuck through it! What I Liked: Iseult was my kind of character. She’s steady and determined, not completely sure of herself yet, but that’s just because there are things she still is learning about herself. I loved Isuelt’s side of the threadsister bond with Safi (though I… Read more »

Mini Review: Size 14 Is Not Fat Either

April 2, 2016 Reviews 0 ★★★½

I’m really enjoying the Meg Cabot’s Heather Wells series! I waited far too long in giving her adult books a try. I liked that it had a light approach to a pretty gruesome murder mystery – I don’t consider myself a mystery lover by any means, though I do appreciate Sherlock and some light thrillers. But this series is seriously making me think that maybe there is a whole chick-lit kind of mystery genre out in the world that I haven’t really given a chance. The mystery in this book is pretty dark in some aspects (I mean they find… Read more »
