Make It Count (Bowler University #1) by Megan Erickson | Review

Make It Count (Bowler Universi..

Posted July 16, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

The first book in the Bowler University new adult series was adorable. While it didn’t rank among my favorite new adult novels, it hooked me with the characters and has me excited for the follow up books in the series. Kat is not your typical character.  She acts like an airhead but deep down she’s […]

Icons (Icons #1) by Margaret S..

Posted July 6, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

Icons, Margaret Stohl’s first solo venture, let me down in a lot of ways.  I was expecting a fast-paced book full of pulse-pounding action and suspense and that is definitely not what I got.  Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but it could have been great. The biggest issue I had with Icons was […]

Such Sweet Sorrow by Jenny Trout | Mini Review

Such Sweet Sorrow by Jenny Tro..

Posted June 26, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

Such Sweet Sorrow is a lot more than a retelling of Romeo and Juliet.  I was pleasantly surprised to find many more of Shakespeare’s characters represented in this book and while it had it’s flaws, it was an enjoyable read. Jenny Trout has a way with words.  Such Sweet Sorrow is beautifully written.  However, I […]

The Merciless by Danielle Vega | Review

The Merciless by Danielle Vega..

Posted June 12, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

The Merciless by Danielle Vega is seriously one of the creepiest books I’ve read, especially for YA.  I knew it was horror when I started reading it but I really didn’t expect much from it since horror is usually toned down for YA.  While I felt that was the case a little bit with The […]

Short Story Saturday: Automatic by Rachel Caine

Short Story Saturday: Automati..

Posted June 7, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 0 Comments

Automatic had the making of a great short story but I couldn’t fully enjoy it.  The reasoning behind that is pretty simple though; I haven’t read any of the Morganville Vampires books.   This story is set in Morganville, Texas and while I think you can read it without reading the series, I think readers […]

Foreplay, the first book in Sophie Jordan’s new adult series, was fabulous.  I adored it and by the end of the book I was dying for more from the series.  I requested Tease as soon as possible and dropped everything to read it once I was approved.  While I enjoyed it, it didn’t compare to […]

This book.  What do I even say about it?  It wasn’t good, it wasn’t bad, it was just right there in the middle for me.  To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.  I haven’t finished Amy Plum’s other series, the Revenants series, but what I did read was fabulous.  I expected the same […]

Finding It (Losing It #3) by Cora Carmack | Review

Finding It (Losing It #3) by C..

Posted May 4, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 2 Comments

Finding It is the third  book in the Losing It trilogy and it is by far my least favorite.  The first two books in the trilogy were some of my favorite new adult books but this one just did not measure up. Kelsey is a spoiled brat, no other way of saying it.  She is […]

Posted April 2, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

I don’t know why I continue to torture myself by reading J.A. Redmerski’s books.  I didn’t care for her previous book, The Edge of Never, but I figured I’d give Song of the Fireflies a shot.  Needless to say, I feel like I wasted my time with this one. Elias and Brayelle are two of […]

Posted March 25, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 7 Comments

Dear Killer is really hard for me to review. On one hand, I enjoyed it. On the other, there were things about it that really let me down. Dear Killer really is one book that is perfectly in the middle for me. The concept for Dear Killer is what really caught my attention and it’s […]
