Review: You Say It First – Katie Cotugno

Review: You Say It First ̵..

When I see Katie Cotugno has a new book coming out I immediately add it to my TBR without even knowing what it is about. She is an auto read author for me and she has never let me down. So when I read what You Say It First is about I was even more intrigued. It was a subject that is current and relevant and something I knew Katie was passionate about. I was really excited to read it and once again Katie did not let me know. You Say It First was a solid, solid read. You Say […]

Review: Rules for Being a Girl – Katie Cotugno, Candace Bushnell

Review: Rules for Being a Girl..

Katie Cotugno told me over a year ago that she was writing a book with Candace Bushnell. I was so excited for her and the book. I knew it was going to be amazing even though I didn’t know what it was going to be about. Enter Rules for Being a Girl. As soon as I read the description I knew I was right and then I read it and I was more than right. Rules for Being a Girl was exactly what I expected to get from a powerhouse writing team and in the end I just wanted more. […]

It actually was a fun experience. If you are interested in the reviews HERE. This year I decided to give back in a way and […]

Review: Fireworks – Katie Cotugno

Review: Fireworks – Kati..

Sometimes you pick up a book and you just don’t know how it is going to go for you. You’ve read books by the author and enjoyed one and was conflicted on the other. You like the premise but know it has the potential to go in a different direction than you expect. Because of these things you are almost scared to pick up the book. This was me with Fireworks. I was worried how I would feel about it. I was scared I wouldn’t love it. I was scared I would be disappointed or conflicted. Instead I got one […]

Mini Reviews #1

I’m the black sheep of the group with All the Bright Places. I know many many people loved this book, but I just couldn’t connect to it myself. I don’t know what it was but I didn’t cry or feel even the tiniest bit emotionally invested in Theodore and Violet’s story which made me sad. Honestly I kept having this feeling as I read that I would have loved Theodore and Violet in another book. There was something off putting to me about the humor added to a book that really was a very serious subject and because of that […]
