League of American Traitors by..

Posted August 22, 2017 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

My Thoughts: Oh, how I wanted to love League of American Traitors.  It had such a promising premise but the execution just didn’t work for me.  While it’s a quick read that definitely has it’s fun moments, there just didn’t anything that makes it stand out among the many other young adult novels available these […]

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas | Review

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas..

Posted August 8, 2017 by Kaitlynn in review / 9 Comments

My Thoughts: I’ve finally found it!  After years of reading mediocre young adult thrillers, I’ve finally found the one that kept me guessing until the very end.  Little Monsters had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.  Kara Thomas has a very twisted mind and I love it! Little Monsters grabs […]

Spindle Fire (Spindle Fire #1) by Lexa Hilyer | Review

Spindle Fire (Spindle Fire #1)..

Posted June 6, 2017 by Kaitlynn in review / 4 Comments

Lexa Hilyer impressed me with her previous novel, Proof of Forever.  Spindle Fire is such a departure from that story though, that I went into this one as if I knew nothing of the author’s work.  To be completely honest, this was one I picked up solely on the appeal of the gorgeous cover.  This […]

Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roe..

I have a new favorite mystery.  Last Seen Leaving wasn’t even really on my radar until Angie from Lady Knight Reads told me to pick it up.  I’m so glad I listened to her.  Last Seen Leaving, Caleb Roehrig’s debut novel, is one of those books that I’m going to be pushing on everyone now. […]

Blog Tour: Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland | Review + Favorite Quotes

Blog Tour: Our Chemical Hearts..

Posted October 5, 2016 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, review / 14 Comments

Ignoring the whole John Green/Rainbow Rowell comparison made in the synopsis, I went into Our Chemical Hearts not really knowing what to expect but with an open mind.  I’m the kind of person who doesn’t necessarily like those comparisons because it can give people unrealistic hopes.  That wasn’t the case with this one because I […]

99 Days by Katie Cotugno | Rev..

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I wanted to love this book.  Katie Cotugno’s debut novel, How To Love, is on my favorites shelf.  I adored everything about it.  I put off reading 99 Days because I was saving it for a day when I needed a really good book to read. […]

Crow Mountain by Lucy Inglis |..

Posted August 29, 2016 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres and it’s one that I feel does not get enough love.  I picked up Crow Moutain because it had been so long since I’d read anything historical fiction and this one seemed really unique.  I was definitely right about that. Pros: Story:  The story was […]

Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K..

Posted August 25, 2016 by Kaitlynn in review / 8 Comments

I finished Exit, Pursued by a Bear a few days ago but I haven’t been able to properly put my thoughts into words.  I still can’t really do that but I’m going to try. Trigger warning: As noted in the synopsis, this book deals with rape and teen pregnancy.  If those aren’t things you can […]

The Assassin Game by Kirsty Mc..

Posted August 19, 2016 by Kaitlynn in review / 9 Comments

With a title like this one, I had some pretty high hopes.  The Assassin Game is my first time reading a book by Kirsty McKay and while it wasn’t all I had hoped for, it was enough to get me to check out some of her other books. Pros: Mystery: There were times when I totally […]

Oh how I wanted to love Hurricane Kiss.  I don’t know what it was about this book but I was really drawn to it (despite the embarrassing cover).  I figured this would be a quick, fun read with some good secrets and romance.  It was quick but that was about all I got right about […]
