Sublime, the first YA book from the duo of Christina Lauren, is a surprisingly unique ghost story that left me guessing until the very last page. I picked it up on a whim and I’m really glad that I did. Sublime will captivate readers from the very first page.  Colin and Lucy’s story is one […]

Posted September 29, 2014 by Kaitlynn in 5 stars, blog tour, review / 4 Comments

It really should come as no surprise that Lauren Oliver’s adult debut is spectacular.  Rooms is everything I didn’t know I was looking for in a book.  The writing is gorgeous, the characters are extremely flawed, and the mystery is captivating. Rooms is not a book you want to rush through.  It’s definitely compelling enough […]

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock is a really hard book for me to review.  It’s one of those books that you think you should like because the subject matter is tough and it’s honest and well done but I found myself disliking a lot of things about it. I’ve Had Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock on my […]

Before reading Adrenaline Crush, I hadn’t heard much about it but what I had heard wasn’t the greatest.  I went in with low expectations and the book definitely surpassed them.  I found myself really enjoying Adrenaline Crush and I powered through this book! Dyna isn’t an easy character to like for a while.  She’s fearless, […]

I’ll Give You The Sun is Jandy Nelson’s highly anticipated sophomore novel.  With my love of her debut novel, The Sky Is Everywhere, I had supremely high expectations for I’ll Give You The Sun.  To be completely honest, my expectations were probably even a little unrealistic.  However, Jandy Nelson definitely delivered and you completely met […]

Posted September 18, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, interview, review / 4 Comments

Evidence of Things Not Seen might be one of the most bizarre books I’ve ever read.  It’s unlike anything else in the YA market and while it wasn’t my favorite, I truly enjoyed reading it. The story focuses on the disappearance of Tommy Smythe.  Tommy is a strange boy with a fascination for particle physics […]

Posted September 16, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, giveaway, review / 5 Comments

Straight contemporary romances haven’t really been wowing me lately and I was hoping Louder Than Words would change that.  While I enjoyed the book and I devoured the story, it just didn’t stand out to me as anything all that special.  It’s a fun read but there could have been a lot more to it.

Rites of Passage by Joy Hensle..

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
