Review: Trouble from the Start by Rachel Hawthorne | Blog Tour + Giveaway!

Trouble From the Start has that classic Young Adult contemporary feel, like the one I get when reading a Sarah Dessen novel. There’s something nostalgic about it… I love stories of couples from different backgrounds. Avery and Fletcher couldn’t have had more different lives. She comes from a loving family, with a cop for a […]

Morgan’s April Challenge Updates!

Morgan’s April Challenge Updates!

  I’m continuing to kick butt with my my fantasy challenge, which is mildly surprising to me! I also managed to read more this month, even if a couple of the books were short.     The Ice Dragon by George R.R.

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

I’d like to be different from everyone who’s already said this and NOT say that the end of The Winner’s Crime destroyed me but I’d be totally lying. That ending was brutal! More brutal than The Winner’s Curse! SO much more brutal. But I hope this doesn’t discourage you from reading this sequel because it’s […]

Review: I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Review: I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Sometimes you read a book that just makes you feel ALL THE FEELINGS for every single character and I’ll Meet You There was definitely that kind of book for me. Most of the time I was as confused about Josh as Skylar was. He could be this swoon-worthy, caring, attentive, protective guy one day and […]
