Emotionally Charged and Real! Only A Breath Apart by Katie McGarry [ARC Review]

Emotionally Charged and Real! Only A Breath Apart by Katie McGarry [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Holy moly, this book! Only a Breath Apart was a test in emotion and angst that I did have a hard time finishing but ultimately enjoyed! Trigger Warning: there is physical, verbal, emotional, and mental abuse in this book. Only a Breath Apart was everything I expected and Katie McGarry did not disappoint! This book touched me in all the right places despite the hard subject matter and tone of the book. I expected angst but […]

Cry Your Eyes Out! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry [Audiobook Review]

Cry Your Eyes Out! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I’m not really into reading YA Contemporary Romance because it’s YA and I normally get frustrated by high school antics (I mean, not like I wasn’t a teenager back then). Sometimes, I can’t help but keep rolling my eyes. Pushing the Limits surprised me in a good way! This book is everything I thought a YA book isn’t – real and emotional and deals with adult themes. The Characters I love how these two broken characters met and fell in love. Echo has been hurt by […]

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know how to review this book. When I finished listening to the audiobook, I was hit with homesickness. If you don’t know already, I am an immigrant (now a US citizen) and I am Filipino, so this book really hit home for me. Coincidentally, my turn for the library cue came a few days before the US Presidential Election, which I thought was very appropriate. I had to read this. In fact, I finished listening to the audiobook on election day. I admit to […]

Basically MY Life Story – Minus the FanFic Fame | Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell | Audiobook Review

Basically MY Life Story – Minus the FanFic Fame | Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t have any expectations going into Fangirl. Sure, I had heard a lot of awesome things about Rainbow Rowell, but I honestly haven’t picked up her books. I DID have Fangirl and Carry On signed by Rainbow Rowel at Yallwest earlier this year, but I gave my Fangirl copy to my cousin who absolutely ADORES Rainbow! Anyway, in preparation for reading Carry On (which I STILL HAVEN’T DONE!), I decided to read Fangirl first and I WAS AMAZED! I mean, if you are a total […]

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins | Audiobook Review

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. After that fun #LoveAThon weekend, I got a few recs that got me excited to read books out of my comfort zone.  As you know, I hardly read contemporary YA, so I was a little bit hesitant to read Anna and the French Kiss.  But, there was a lot of positive hype about this book when this came out, and a lot of bloggers did say that it was SOOOO GOOOD, so I decided to try it.  Please be warned that there might be […]

Book VS Movie: The Fault in Our Stars

Book VS Movie: The Fault in Our Stars

My Thoughts I was so excited to see The Fault in Our Stars and I wanted to go The Day Before Our Stars event but I didn’t want to go all by my lonesome.  So I waited until I saw it, still by myself mind you, that Saturday.  I expected to cry buckets through the whole film and brought in tissues (a lot of tissues) to be ready.  Unfortunately, I DID NOT cry buckets at all. The whole film was really good.  It followed closely to the book which was great.  Although there were some minor (or maybe major) scenes that […]
