Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay | Review

Princess of Thorns by Stacey J..

Posted December 14, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 6 Comments

Princess of Thorns is the fantasy novel I’ve been looking for.  Stacey Jay took the tale of Sleeping Beauty and made it completely fresh.  I devoured this novel! Princess Aurora is unlike any other princess I’ve read about.  She’s very self-sufficient and possibly even a little too independent.  She doesn’t trust easily because of her past.  […]

I’m quite obsessed with new adult novels lately.  I don’t know what it is about them but they grab my interest much more than other books.  Scoring Wilder was no exception.  I was hooked from the first page and I read the 400+ page book in one day! Liam Wilder and Kinsley Bryant are immediately […]

Posted November 3, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, review / 3 Comments

Beautiful Girl is the first book I’ve read from Paper Lantern Lit’s publishing imprint and it’s definitely set my expectations pretty high for their future books.  Lida James’ debut novel has pretty much everything readers could want: suspense, romance, mystery, and betrayal.  I was hooked from the moment I picked it up. I wasn’t sure […]

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, […]

Posted September 22, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 5 Comments

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 […]

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.
