Secrets of a Side Bitch | Jessica N. Watkins
Panpan

I almost can't even put into words how much I detested this book. I hated the tone of the writing, the characters were very un-relatable, and the situations were so unrealistic.

This was another book I had really high hopes for (this is becoming an unfortunate theme) but it ended up letting me down. The characters were a bit too overly dramatic for my taste, and everything moved so fast between them it was unrealistic. I found it okay at best.

Sincerely, Carter | Whitney Gracia Williams

I was expecting a lot more from this book than what it gave, considering its ratings on goodreads. It was a fast, fairly shallow read; I didn't really like the characters; and everything happened very suddenly, like night and day. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Pushing the Limits | Katie McGarry
Pickpick

I hadn't meant to get so caught up in this book, and I'm not quite sure how it happened, honestly. But this book sucked me in from the get-go, and it's one of the few - in a while - I've read that I literally could not put down. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Totally Awkward Love Story | Tom Ellen, Lucy Ivison

Because I need something to balance out the heaviness of Gone Girl, and this looks like a cute and quick read 😊

Gone Girl | Gillian Flynn

It took forever and day, but I finally got around to seeing the movie. And of course it only made me want to read the book even more! So excited to finally start this!

This story was a pretty standard romantic suspense. I loved Nicki's spunk (most of the time), but mark got really annoying with his hang ups. However, the ending is what made this a "pick" rather than a "so-so" for me.

This was my first book by this author, and I loved it. Noah and Cooper were cute, and the story progressed at just the right speed.

Want to Go Private? | Sarah Darer Littman
Mehso-so

I liked this book. It was fairly realistic and an easy read. However, i read this as a fairly mature teenager, and I couldn't really sympathize with Abby. We kept being told that she's a smart girl but her actions don't add up to such. Personally, I just thought the story was okay.

Marked: A House of Night Novel | P. C. Cast, Kristin Cast
Pickpick

This is easily one of my favorite series (through the first 9 or so books). I loved the spunk and strength of the characters and how well the Casts built this world. Marked was a great entry into the House of Night.

Fifty Shades of Grey | E. L. James
Panpan

This is a bittersweet book for me. It was my first ever "adult" book, and the first time I read it I loved it. But then, years later, after reading much better romances with better leads, I realized how crappy of a person Christian was and how weak Anastasia was. Barely gave it 2 stars.

The S-Word | Chelsea Pitcher

This is easily one of my favorite books. It had a lot of mystery and a more than decent plot (especially for a young adult book) with a twist that I honestly didn't see coming.

Consent | Nancy Ohlin
Panpan

I had high hopes for this story, but they weren't realized. It felt more like a love story between the protagonist and her piano than the book's actual love interest. I feel that if the details used to describe Bea's feelings at the piano were put into other parts, it'd have been better.

This book was okay for me. I enjoyed the idea behind it, but the main character got on my nerves a bit with her bashing of her own virginity. That, plus other minor character flaws made the protagonist annoying to me, and I was ready to be done about halfway through.

This is one of the few books I've given five stars to on Goodreads. I fell in love with all the characters, the steamy scenes were more than hot, and it actually had a decent plot. Definitely one of my favorite books.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson | John Green, David Levithan

I had high hopes for this book, because nearly every review I read was positive. However, I struggled to get through a large portion of it. It wasn't necessarily bad, but I will admit I found it boring.

I was expecting a lot more from what is regarded as one of the best paranormal romance novels out there. The writing itself was decent, but I felt Ward spent time explaining minor things, when the major action points should've been detailed. Not sure yet when I'll get to the second one.

Warning: this book deals with very taboo subject matter.

This book destroyed me. Out of all the books I've read this one still sticks out like a sore thumb in my mind. The main characters stole my heart, then crushed it with their story. Be prepared to cry.

MissCarrieLou I cried like a baby after I read this!!!!! 7y
heyitstay @MissCarrieLou me too. I figured out what was going to happen right before it did, and I had to set it down for a week to mentally prepare myself 7y

I fell in love with this book. I started out reading it as a favor to my cousin, because it's his favorite book. But once I got started I couldn't put it down. It's a sweet little coming of age story, and I easily fell in love with Aristotle and Dante. I can't wait for the sequel!

Breaking Perfect | Lydia Michaels

I loved this book. The characters were wonderfully crafted and the way their relationship unfolded was enchanting. This is one of the few books I've read twice, and I enjoyed it immensely both times.
