{ARC REVIEW} Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

{ARC REVIEW} Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmere..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! Some times there are books that just speak directly to your heart, and this was one of those books for me. Emotionally engaging and heavy-hitting with the angst, Letters to the Lost kept me glued to its pages and rooting for its characters the entire time. ♥ Review: I couldn’t, nor did I even want, to set this book down. I neglected all my adult responsibilities yesterday and just curled up on […]

{5-star ARC REVIEW} Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 heart-snatching, heart-mending stars! Mr. Zentner spent my emotions like quarters at an arcade. My body got confused about why the tears were falling as I traversed through the happy and heartbreaking moments that filled these pages. It was a bittersweet joy to watch four boys meet and see why Sauce Crew was formed in Carver’s memories. Then it was a striking ache in my chest to see how he would never be the same again after his […]

{Top Shelf ARC REVIEW} The Wish Granter (Ravenspire #2) by C.J. Redwine

{Top Shelf ARC REVIEW} The Wish Granter (Ravenspir..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! The Wish Granter is Rumpelstiltskin like you’ve never envisioned him before, yet he still carries that sinister edge we learned to expect from him from our younger days. Told in alternating third person between our cunning heroine, the broken hero, and our vicious fae villain, this book will take you on an enchanting tale that rides the precarious balance between the ruthless and the valiant . . .and how sometimes you […]

{ARC REVIEW} Rise of Fire (Reign of Shadows #2) by Sophie Jordan

{ARC REVIEW} Rise of Fire (Reign of Shadows #2) by..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3.5 stars! I still loved Luna and Fowler very much, and really enjoyed being back in both their heads again! However, I’d have to say as a whole I didn’t love this sequel as much as I loved Reign of Shadows. It was missing the that extra excitement and abundance of romance-y feels I got in the first book, and I even had some of the same world-building issues and questions leftover […]

{ARC Review} Full Package by Lauren Blakely

{ARC Review} Full Package by Lauren Blakely

**Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author’s publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   This book has everything…humor, fun, romance, angst, drama, and baked goods.  Yes, I said baked goods.  Bear with me…these delightful treats are just as much a part of this story as the wonderful friendships, the heartbreaks, and the super hot and sexy chemistry.  In short, this story will meet your every […]

{Mini ARC REVIEW} Hooked (Hooked #1) by Liz Fichera

{Mini ARC REVIEW} Hooked (Hooked #1) by Liz Ficher..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars! Oh Hooked, you could have been a contender. I was all on-board for the plot of a girl golfer joining an all boys’ team and an interracial romance, but Fichera didn’t make them her primary focus. For that reason, I think that was what made this book just okay instead of amazing. ♥ Review:  This was another one of those NetGalley requests that fell through the cracks years ago, and I’m finally just […]

{Mini ARC REVIEW} A List of Cages by Robin Roe

{Mini ARC REVIEW} A List of Cages by Robin Roe

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! At some points gut-wrenching and others heart-lifting, this novel profoundly affected me. With an all-too-real look into the tragic lives of children facing child abuse every day, I know that A List of Cages will be a book that stays with me forever, both in part as a haunting memory and as an uplifting reminder. ♥ Review: This book was a difficult one for me to read. Initially it was because the pacing seemed […]

{Review} Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

{Review} Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Funny, sincere, heartbreakingly hopeful and one hundred percent heartfelt, Niven’s YA follow-up to her bestselling All the Bright Places (which I totally loved, you can read my review of it here), Holding Up the Universe, was a damn good read. It delivered on important messages like love yourself, be compassionate, and it made you contemplate the type of person you are and the kind of person you want to be. ♥ Review: There was so much […]

{ARC REVIEW} Bad Boy by Elliot Wake

{ARC REVIEW} Bad Boy by Elliot Wake

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Riveting, thought-provoking, and educational as only Mr. Wake knows how to do, Bad Boy hit a lot of high points for me. I first fell in love with Wake’s writings in his previous works penned under his former name Leah Raeder (you can find my review of Black Iris and Cam Girl here and here), and this novel only proved that I will continue to have a vested interest in any new words he […]

{5-star ARC REVIEW- book published 10/18/2016} Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

{5-star ARC REVIEW- book published 10/18/2016} Gem..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 amazingly brilliant stars, but only because I can’t give it more! (Seriously, give me multi-verses filled with galaxies upon galaxies worth of stars and I would throw them at their feet!) I feel like I’d can’t properly formulate the words, much less sentences, to give this book the adequate praise it so deserves. Just do yourself a favor and depart from this gibberish masquerading as a review and go buy […]
