Posted May 9, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Killer Instinct is one of those books that makes me wonder why I actually wasted my time finishing it.  Sure it’s short at only 272 pages but even 272 pages is too much for this book.  It started off promising but it all went downhill from there. First off, Killer Instinct is the biggest rip […]

Something Real by Heather Demetrios has garnered a lot of praise in the few short months that it’s been out.  I’m a huge contemporary fan but for some reason this one wasn’t on my radar until after publication.  It’s safe to say that every bit of praise this book has gotten has been well-deserved.  Heather […]

Posted April 6, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Not a Drop to Drink, Mindy McGinnis’ debut novel, is a unique dystopian story that kept me hooked from beginning to end.  It’s a story that hasn’t been overdone in YA and readers should really enjoy that about it. Not A Drop to Drink is not your typical action packed, evil government overlord dystopian.  It’s […]

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 […]

Find Me (Find Me #1) by Romily Bernard | Review

Find Me (Find Me #1) by Romily..

Posted March 16, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 5 Comments

Find Me, Romily Bernard’s debut novel, has been garnering some high praise from reviewers lately. I went in with very high expectations and I think my expectations were maybe a little too high. While I enjoyed the story, I didn’t love it like I had hoped. It’s a good addition to the YA suspense genre […]

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge | Review

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge..

Posted January 20, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 15 Comments

Cruel Beauty, Rosamund Hodge’s debut novel, is one of the best retellings I’ve read. Really it’s just one of the best books I’ve read in quite some time. I was hooked from the very beginning and I stayed up late into the night finishing it because I needed to know how it ended! Everything about […]

Blog Tour: How To Love by Katie Cotugno | Review

Blog Tour: How To Love by Kati..

Posted September 27, 2013 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, review / 11 Comments

How To Love is by far one of the best debuts I’ve ever read. I truly had no idea what to expect from Katie Cotugno and I was completely blown away. How To Love almost fits into the new adult category rather than young adult. It’s a much more mature story than normal YA books […]

Something Like Normal has been on my radar for a while but it’s one of those books that I just kept putting off. I was a little scared to read it because my expectations were pretty high after reading all the wonderful reviews. I’m happy to say that my expectations were met and exceeded. Something […]

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay | Review

The Sea of Tranquility by Katj..

Posted May 10, 2013 by Kaitlynn in review / 8 Comments

This review is just going to be a jumbled mess of me gushing about Katja Millay’s debut novel. Let’s just get that out of the way from the start. The Sea of Tranquility is not like a lot of other YA books and I’m actually not sure I’d classify it as YA. While the characters […]
