Percy Jackson and the Olympians: A Collective Review

Believe it or not, I had never read the Percy Jackson series before. Actually, I had never read any of Rick Riordan’s books! I know, it’s an actual freaking shame. Because these books are AHHHHHHHHHHHmazing. The Lightning Thief was a lot of fun, however, I had seen the movie. And the movie is so much like the book that it was more of a refresher. Obviously there were elements that […]

Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between

Review This book just gave me the feels. As a huge fan of Gilmore Girls , it was both exciting and sad to read about the making of the show and how it came to an end. Lauren Graham truly is Lorelai Gilmore; she has a way with words, she’s witty, she’s funny, and she honestly speaks faster than anyone else. I thought I was listening to the audiobook at […]

Every Heart a Doorway

Review I think this may be the strangest book I’ve ever read… The Good Stuff When I started this book, I was like “Heck yes!!! This sounds amazing!! I’m so into it!!” At first, I was super confused. Mostly because I honestly hadn’t read the synopsis, so I had no idea what I was reading. I thought I was going to be reading a contemporary that people were just crazy […]

Dark Matter

Review Well, that was a trip! The Good Stuff Jason is a great protagonist. He had a personality, he had attitude, and he had the brains to figure things out. I enjoyed following his journey! I also felt his extreme fear and sadness when everything in his world took a turn for the worst. The plot is fast-paced and it rarely lingers for too long on scenes. The action is […]

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 […]

Mini Reviews #5

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 […]
