Archived Review #2

Read June 7, 2015 I really enjoyed this book, however, there were certain things that held me back from a 5 or even a 4 star review. First, the expectation was extremely high, as I had heard some really great reviews for it. So, obviously my expectations were not met and I was slightly disappointed. The story started out amazing, with mystery and suspense, and then it just kind of […]

One of Us Is Lying

Review   I honestly hate it when a mystery is so built up, but you as a reader are sitting there wondering why all of the characters are so freaking blind and basically ignorant to the giant red flags that are practically poking them all in the eye. This. Book. Was. So. Obvious. The Good Stuff Ummm, there wasn’t any. Except Stan the lizard…so that should tell you something right […]

Romancing the Duke

Review I feel that I am an extremely eclectic reader, and I enjoy exploring various genres. I’ve always wanted to delve into the world of Regency Romances as I’m a tad bit obsessed with Jane Austen. So I did some research and found this book to be a hit with readers. Sadly, it wasn’t for me. The Good Stuff I found the characters to be really interesting. I liked the […]

The Bookshop on the Corner

Review Excuse me for a second as I run to the airport and buy a one way ticket to Scotland. This book is dreamy. It’s so heartwarming and flat-out adorable. The Good Stuff I relate well with the main character, and I was so very invested in her journey. Her time in Scotland sounds like the most exciting thing in the world right now. I would love to travel to […]

I love this series! I would pay good money to stay at a resort like this one. Why does this place not exist? I’m sure there are resorts for book lovers, but I mean this one specifically. Because I want to go to a murder mystery retreat and dress up like my favorite detective (Jessica Fletcher, of course) and read in all the nooks and crannies hidden away at the […]

American Gods

Review With the show’s debut this year, I thought “might as well”. I also have a really good friend that suggested this book, so I really wanted to enjoy it. But, alas, I did not. The Good Stuff The entire premise of the book shakes me to my core. The mythology of the United States of America? Heck, freaking, yes!!! Wandering around the country meeting mythological figures and actually interacting […]

Why have I waited so long to read these books???? Because they are a big commitment, that’s why. Other than that, I have no idea! This book was amazing! The characters are so ridiculously interesting, the plot is legit crazy, and the world was fantastically built. I also love the fact that Martin is heartless enough that he actually keeps you on your toes. Most of the time you can […]

Heartless

Review So, ummmm, it seems I have found yet another book to which my obsessive heart has attached itself. This book is near perfection. At least for me. Because apparently there is a lot of torn opinions out there in the book world, and I happen to fall into the “I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH” category. The Good Stuff My gosh, Marissa Meyer is an amazing writer. And yes, […]

Read December 16th 2016 It took me way too long to finish this book. I flew through the first quarter, and then things just got too weird. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy a good fantasy story. But that isn’t what I wanted out of this book. I went in expecting an awesome, history-filled, looking for treasure-type adventure. What I got is was so far-fetched from my expectations that […]

I love the Game of Thrones show, even though I’m not the biggest fan of the nudity aspect. (I feel like there is too much pointless nudity. It does nothing for the plot, so I find it unnecessary.) I feel like I’ve put off reading the series, but my sister really wanted me to read this prequel. I enjoyed it a lot. There’s not much to these three novellas in […]
