This story. THIS FREAKING STORY!! What an intricately layered, complex book of feels. I will be honest, that cover is what first piqued my interest, but then all the reviews overflowing with flails and fawning sold me on it. And then I got the vibe it was a bit love-triangular-ish (which I normally run from as quickly as possible) but this time I decided to take my chances because I’l be honest…it sounded more sexy […]

{review} Forget Me Not (Forget Me Not #1) by Willo..

I love a good mind f*ckery story and this was it. Both of the main characters had so much baggage, so many issues, so much guilt…it was almost overwhelming. At first glance you’d think only Jay was deeply scarred by his past, but Robin too was so mentally unstable, even though she appeared ok on the outside. I loved that the best way for them to move forward was to try and fix each other. […]

Oh my heart…I loved this story. I had all of the feels. Left Drowning is exactly the book I am always craving. Emotional, scarred pasts, brooding, romance, sexy times! and of course the best part, the healing. Ms. Park’s writing was effortless and I was able to slide right into this world and become part of their lives for a while and it was glorious. Both Christopher and Blythe (gah, I love her name) had […]

{review} Finding Home by Lauren Baker and Bonnie D..

I’ve been drawn to this book for a while, but it was pulled at one point, but re-released recently. As soon as I saw it on Amazon I snatched it up and starting reading right away. However, a week later I finished it and I’m not sure how I want to rate it. Parts of it were good, and other parts…not so much. I will probably go with a 2.5-3 rating. I went into this […]

{top shelf review} Unloved by Katy Regnery

This story. This absolutely beautiful love story. It spoke to me and touched me. The writing was beautiful, almost magical in the way the words wrapped around each other on the page to draw me in. I loved both Cassidy and Brynn. I loved them as individuals, and I’m pretty sure angels sang when they shared their feelings. I felt, yes, I’m telling you, my heart felt both the anguish and pain, as well as the […]

{top shelf review} Where I End by Michelle Dare

Gripping. I absolutely LOVED Cy and Evie’s story. It caught me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the very last page. Ms. Dare’s words drew me in as they beautifully wove such a deep story. It was a story that broke my heart, but it also healed my heart, however, not perfectly. I think that’s what I loved about it. This story was real – just because Cy and Evie […]

{top shelf review} Luca (Ruin & Revenge #2) b..

This book, omg THIS BOOK!! I loved Luca it. The intensity of…everything! It started with the attraction between Luca and Gabrielle which was dark, deadly, passionate and consuming. It made me feel alive the same way it did Gabrielle. I could feel the crackle in the air the second I met them. The first glance, Luca right off the bat admitted his attraction/interest/infatuation with Gabriel, and I like that she straight up went to go see him […]

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma S..

I loved this story! This is the 3rd Emma Scott book I have read, and she is 3 for 3 – she writes amazingly deep and emotional love stories that touch me and make my heart full. Both Zelda (I wasn’t a fan of her name but went with it) and Beckett were very broken, and neither from your typical New Adult baggage. Both of them were still strong, trying to live their lives but not doing a very […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

{ARC REVIEW} The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I can’t imagine how challenging it would be to tackle the voice of a movement like Black Lives Matter, but I do know that Thomas did it with a finesse only a talented author like herself possibly could. With an unapologetically realistic delivery packed with emotion, The Hate U Give is a crucially important portrayal of the difficulties minorities face in our country every single day. I have no doubt that […]
