My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal | Review

My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal |..

Posted August 4, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Bethany Neal’s debut novel, My Last Kiss, was not at all what I expected.  It had a lot of potential to be an awesome story but it fell flat in a lot of areas.  I enjoyed it enough to read it through but this one may not be for everyone. My Last Kiss has a […]

The Secrets of Lily Graves is one of those rare YA books that actually manages to surprise me.  I expected to enjoy this one, and I did, but I didn’t expect to by stumped by the mystery and up late into the night reading to the very end.  Sarah Strohmeyer wove a fantastic mystery that […]

Posted June 17, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review, Sarah Ockler / 4 Comments

Sarah Ockler very quickly rose to the top of my list of favorite authors. She has cemented a place on that list with #scandal. #scandal has everything readers could want in a contemporary novel; romance, secrecy, betrayal, and more. The base of the story isn’t anything new. Lucy and Ellie are best friends. Ellie is […]

The Merciless by Danielle Vega | Review

The Merciless by Danielle Vega..

The Merciless by Danielle Vega is seriously one of the creepiest books I’ve read, especially for YA.  I knew it was horror when I started reading it but I really didn’t expect much from it since horror is usually toned down for YA.  While I felt that was the case a little bit with The […]

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord | Review

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord..

Posted June 11, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

Open Road Summer is a book after my own heart.  Emery Lord’s debut novel is everything a contemporary lover could want in a book.  It’s a novel of friendship, fame, family, and love and it hits the right notes on every one of those subjects.  And did I mention Matt Finch?  No?  Well don’t worry, […]

Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill | Review

Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren ..

Lauren Morrill got my attention with her debut novel, Meant To Be, but she captured my heart with her sophomore novel, Being Sloane Jacobs.  Being Sloane Jacobs is one of the best contemporary reads I’ve read in quite some time and I was seriously impressed with every aspect of it. Being Sloane Jacobs starts off […]

I’ll admit, the cover totally got me with this one.  It looked like the perfect summer read and I figured it’d be a cute, fun, quick read.  Sadly it was only one of those three things: quick. Where do I even begin with this one?  I guess Becca is a good place to start since […]

Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Review

Don’t Look Back by Jenni..

Posted May 18, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 6 Comments

I continue to be impressed with Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books.  Whether she’s writing young adult or new adult, paranormal or contemporary, it’s always fabulous.  Don’t Look Back is no exception. Contemporary suspense is one of my favorite genres.  However, it’s sometimes hard to impress me when it comes to these types of stories because I […]

Sleep No More by Aprilynne Pike | Review

Sleep No More by Aprilynne Pik..

Posted May 14, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Sleep No More is only the second book by Aprilynne Pike that I’ve read but it’s definitely the most disappointing.  There were very few things I could find to like about Sleep No More and I only finished the book because I wanted to know who was murdering people and why.  There were so many […]

Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas | Review

Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas ..

Posted May 8, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 5 Comments

Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas is not getting enough buzz, in my opinion. It’s a completely adorable book that contemporary readers will love.  Liz Czukas’ debut novel shows a lot of promise for her future books. Heart might be one of the most awkward heroines I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about.  Honestly, […]
