For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund | Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It took me a while (well years, really) to finally read this. I first For Darkness Shows the Stars a little after it came out and I was blown away by the awesome cover! I mean, LOOK AT THAT COVER! And the title is GENIUS!

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 […]

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time   A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas    Book Review

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally taking the time to review ACoTaR!  I mean, it’s been a few weeks since I finished reading this book and I’m still left speechless.  Because the LAST FEW CHAPTERS!  OMG! OMG?!  What do you mean OMG?! Well, just what I said.  The last few chapters of ACoTaR decimated me.  In a good way and a bad way.  ACoTaR was a pretty slow start for me.  I guess it was because SJ Maas was setting up the whole world. Oh?  So back up.  What is this […]

Devastated you? See, something happens here TWICE that I can’t even…!  I mean, both really left me reeling and I can’t seem to move on from that.  And this happens a little bit past the halfway mark.  And then it gets […]
