Posted May 17, 2015 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, giveaway, review / 5 Comments

Hold Me Like a Breath is a completely fresh new story for the YA genre.  Tiffany Scmidt has crafted a wonderfully captivating story that will hook readers from start to finish.  And who wouldn’t love a princess and the pea retelling? I’ve always been fascinated with stories relating to the mob so I had a […]

Whatever Life Throws At You is the first new adult novel I’ve read by Julie Cross but it definitely will not be my last.  It’s a thoroughly enjoyable read with romance, betrayal, and baseball (meaning men in tight pants).  What more could a girl want? Annie Lucas and Jason Brody may be seriously attracted to […]

Posted April 28, 2015 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, giveaway, review / 1 Comment

Rules of Seduction is an adorable new adult novel about the inner workings of Hollywood and what it takes to make it in the business.  With a fun cast of characters and an awkwardly cute romance, it’s a quick read for contemporary fans. Dani is both the best thing about Rules of Seduction and the worst. […]

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord | Review

I read and adored Emery Lord’s debut novel, Open Road Summer. It was the perfect blend of romance, friendship, and music. That being the case, I had high expectations for The Start of Me and You.  Perhaps my expectations were too high because I found myself only liking this one as compared to how much […]

Posted February 23, 2015 by Kaitlynn in review / 5 Comments

Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless is Liz Czukas’ sophomore novel for young adults and while I definitely enjoyed it, I found it nowhere near as quirky and fun as her debut novel, Ask Again Later. It’s a quick read that I found myself flying through but it wasn’t as laugh out loud funny as I […]

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven | Review

All The Bright Places by Jenni..

Posted February 19, 2015 by Kaitlynn in review / 6 Comments

I’d heard that Jennifer Niven’s young adult debut was a good one but I wasn’t prepared for how much of a tearjerker it was.  All The Bright Places is my kind of book: contemporary, super sweet romance, lots of deeper issues that take root in your mind and don’t let go.  Is it any surprise […]

Last Will and Testament has been on my TBR for a while.  Y’all know me, I’m a sucker for new adult novels.  This one was no exception.  I was hooked from the start.  In fact, I was so hooked I actually missed my train because I was paying no attention to anything but the book. […]

These books may seem like they have nothing in common but they were all books I read for my YA Lit class last semester.  I read some other books that I will be writing full reviews for but I thought I’d just share a few of my thoughts about these three.   Title: Crank Author: […]

Posted December 29, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, giveaway, interview, review / 2 Comments

Love & Other Theories is not your typical fluffy contemporary romance.  In fact, there is nothing typical about Love & Other Theories.  While it wasn’t exactly what I was hoping it would be, I did find myself hooked from the start and smiling when I finished it. Aubrey and her best friends are the mean […]

While planning out my winter break TBR, someone on Twitter suggested I read Party Girl.  I was hoping to get some books from my TBR read but after checking out some reviews and the synopsis, I decided Party Girl might just be the perfect read to start off my break.  It certainly had some flaws […]
