Posted September 10, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 10 Comments

Rites of Passage is a strong debut novel from Joy Hensley.  I was seriously impressed by this contemporary novel and I’m already looking forward to whatever she writes next. Rites of Passage combines a few of my favorite things: strong females, forbidden romance, and a school setting.  And it just so happens that all three […]

Posted September 9, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, giveaway, review / 13 Comments

Right Kind of Wrong, the third and final book in the Finding Fate trilogy, lived up to my expectations.  After reading two of Chelsea Fine’s previous novels, I’ve come to expect steamy romance, well-developed characters, and fun, fast-paced stories.  Right Kind of Wrong is not lacking in any of these. Jenna and Jack take center […]

Shatter, the final book in the True Believers series, was a wonderful conclusion to the series.  Erin McCarthy’s new adult series is full of romance, heartbreak, and tons of laughs. Kylie wasn’t the best at first but she quickly grew on me.  She definitely put a lot of emphasis on what happened with Robin and […]

I Want It That Way is Ann Aguirre’s first foray into the young adult genre and she definitely did it right!  Nadia and Ty’s story captured my heart and this series has some serious potential. Nadia reminded me a lot of myself.  She’s hardworking, driven, and pretty hard on herself.  She is a full time […]

Can’t Look Away, Donna Cooner’s sophomore novel, shows promise for her as a writer.  I found it to be an extremely quick read that captivated me from start to finish. Torrey’s story was one that is very relevant to todays teens.  Torry has a great online presence through her Youtube beauty channel as well as […]

Does it really come as a surprise to anyone that I absolutely adored the final book in the Anna and the French Kiss trilogy?  No?  Didn’t think so.  Isla and the Happily Ever After may just be the best book of the trilogy, in my opinion. Isla and the Happily Ever After brings the trilogy […]

Blind by Rachel DeWoskin | Review

Blind by Rachel DeWoskin | Rev..

Posted August 7, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Blind is an interesting take on how your life can change in an instant.  Rachel DeWoskin’s young adult debut is a wonderful story about a girl learning to go through life blind. I think the hardest thing for readers to enjoy about Blind is the style of writing.  The writing is not bad at all […]

When I saw Dearest Clementine on sale on Amazon, I decided to give it a shot.  It was free, what could it hurt?  Well, I realized there was a good reason it was free: it’d be a complete waste of money to actually pay for it. Clementine was a grade A bitch.  She was only […]

I recently caved and read Colleen Hoover’s book, Slammed.  I was hugely impressed with it and I was really looking forward to checking out the sequel, Point of Retreat.  While I did enjoy the book, I was actually quite disappointed with it. Will and Layken’s story was actually pretty wrapped up in Slammed but I […]

Posted July 23, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 0 Comments

Deceiving Lies, the much anticipated sequel to Forgiving Lies, was a let down after the total awesomeness that was Forgiving Lies.  Every part of this book was lackluster compared to the first book and I ended up wishing that Rachel and Kash’s story just ended with the first book. Rachel and Kash are back but […]
