Dark Eyes

At first glance, I wasn’t too excited about Dark Eyes, because I didn’t like the cover or the title. But then I read the synopsis, and I COULDN’T WAIT! I love thrillers, especially ones with a hint of mystery and majorly conflicted characters. Dark Eyes by passed every one of my expectations and it’s now … Continue reading

Illuminate

Illuminate is one of the longer books I’ve read lately, and honestly, I read it as fast I would a shorter one, because it’s so fast paced! New secrets are constantly being uncovered, and the characters are tested. That is probably one of my favorite things about it! Haven is one of those characters you … Continue reading

What Happened to Goodbye

One of my favorite Sarah Dessen novels ever. What Happened to Goodbye has a different feeling than Just Listen, This Lullaby, or The Truth About Forever, and the difference is what makes it so fantastic. When McLean was first introduced, I didn’t like her. I didn’t like how judgmental she was, how close to her heart she held everything, and how much … Continue reading

The Beginning of After

Jennifer Castle’s debut is breathtaking and spot on true.

Her feelings and thoughts rang so true to me, even though I’ve never had to experience what she had to, … Continue reading

The Future of Us

This is probably the best way to explain this book: Changing your future by changing the now. Emma, the girl that annoyed me. I don’t know what it was about her, but it just annoyed me. I think it was her selection in boys. I mean, seriously Emma? Make some decent decisions here! Other than that, I … Continue reading

The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Favorite things about this book: The cover. It’s beautiful! I love how the words are different sizes and that blue swirly thing in the back ties it all together. Plus, Elisa’s dress is gorgeous. I do admit, at the beginning I was questioning Elisa looking like she does on the cover, but after a while … Continue reading

The Name of the Star

This book incorporates historical facts with present-day theories and mysteries and the outcome is a well-paced novel with twists and turns on every page. One of my favorite things about The Name of the … Continue reading

At first, this book did not appeal to me. But then the electromagnetic pulse happened, Alex was suddenly in charge of child, and they were being hunted by killer kids. Creepy. Then they meet Tom. Oh Tom. He brings the third part of their trio – Alex, Ellie, and Tom – to life and helps … Continue reading
