REVIEW | Ugly Truths by Blake Blessing

  I’m extremely sleep deprived and it’s all Blake Blessing‘s fault. Ha. Just kidding 😉 But I did spend a couple nights staying up way too late to read this book. (And before I lose my book blogging cred, I can easily polish off a book in a day, but I don’t always have the […]

REVIEW: Pretty Lies – Blake Blessing

I’m a big fan of Blake Blessing’s writing (see my reviews for her previous works here, here, and here). While I will say I enjoyed her previous books a little more than this one, I still wasn’t disappointed in this story. Astrid is a little different from most heroines. She’s kind of shy, but she’s […]

REVIEW: I Spy the Boy Next Door – Samantha Armstrong

This book really took me by surprise. There were things that bugged me a bit–which I’ll get to–but for the most part, I loved this story. I’ll start with the things that I was a bit annoyed by … Our heroine is homeschooled, and along with that came all the “homeschooled kid” stereotypes. She’s naive, […]

Breakout – A.M. Rose

This book took me by surprise. I was instantly intrigued by the blurb, but sometimes science fiction is a little difficult for me to get into, so I wasn’t sure if I would end up feeling like I had to drag myself through it or if I would enjoy it. Thankfully, it was the latter, […]

Resilience – Alicia Rades

I loved the first book in this series and I knew I needed to read the next as soon as it came out, and to my immense excitement, I was able to read an ARC copy *cue crazy dancing* And I have to say, this book certainly does not disappoint. It’s just as good as, […]

The Network – E. G. Bateman

If I thought Ms. Bateman couldn’t possibly surprise me more than she had in the first book of this series, I was so, so wrong. I felt like I was on Space Mountain at Disney, where everything is mostly dark and you aren’t sure which way the coaster is going to go, and you’re somehow […]

Lines – Anna B. Doe

This was my first read by Anna B. Doe, so I didn’t fully know what to expect from her writing style. I enjoyed the story. I did feel like the characters were a bit superficial and I felt that the lack of contractions in dialogue was a little strange; I’d think teenagers would be more […]
