May 9, 2014 Reviews 8 ★★★★★

If you haven’t read Open Road Summer yet, then you need to. Because Matt Finch. That is all. *Walks away.* … … … Oh, you need more of a reason than Matt Finch? Sorry about that! Open Road Summer is an incredible coming-of-age, summer-time story. The characters are amazing and… Read more »

Review: Rebel by Amy Tintera

Review: Rebel by Amy Tintera

May 7, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★½

Though Rebel fell short of my expectations, it was still better than its predecessor, Reboot. The main characters were slightly better, the secondary characters shined, the plot was a little more intriguing and the pace was a bit faster. I still wasn’t a huge fan of Wren.

Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

April 8, 2014 Reviews 8 ★★★½

While Dorothy Must Die was a fascinating, deliciously dark take on The Wizard of Oz, it fell short of the hype that surrounded it. I had such high hopes for this book and I definitely felt disappointed. When I read, I’m very character-driven and I didn’t connect with or care… Read more »
