Review: Defy the Night – Brigid Kemmerer

Review: Defy the Night –..

In 2017 I fell in love with Brigid Kemmerer and her writing. I picked up one of her books, Love Letters to the Lost, at 7am one day and by the end of that night I was done, while working a full day. Her writing grabbed me immediately and I never turned back. Since then I have devoured 5 other books by her and have loved them all to pieces thinking she could never get any better. And then I read Defy the Night. This book, to me, is by far Brigid’s best work and I’m obsessed and head over […]

Mini Reviews #9 – Netgalley Mini Reviews 3.0

Mini Reviews #9 – Netgal..

Another month, more Netgalley reviews. Here are a few brief thoughts on some 3 star Netgalley reads: In theory You Lucky Dog sounds like it would be a really fun, cute rom com. It had all the parts. Sadly, for me, that just wasn’t the case. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed some of it, like the dogs because they were ADORABLE. And I also liked some of the family aspect. That was a good thing to include, especially Max’s family. But for the most part I found the plot very slow and Carly’s family felt like caricatures and not […]

Review: Accidental – Alex Richards

Review: Accidental – Ale..

I can’t remember how I heard about Accidental but I do remember I wanted to read it as soon as I learned about its existence. It seemed like a book that not only had never read anything like, but something that is current and could almost have been ripped from the headlines. I knew it would be a heavy book, and I was prepared. And although it wasn’t as emotional as I expected, Accidental was a book I was happy to have read. Accidental is about 16 year old Johanna who is being raised by her grandparents after her mom […]

Review: The Map from Here to There – Emery Lord

Review: The Map from Here to T..

I admit I was nervous when I learned there was going to be a sequel to The Start of Me and You. I was so happy with how things ended with Paige and Max I was terrified where it would go. But I am also an Emery Lord fangirl so there was no way I wouldn’t read it. That being said it is safe to say that The Map from Here to There demolished my feelings and added a whole new level to Paige and Max’s relationship that just deepened my love for them. The Map from Here to There […]

Review: A Heart So Fierce and Broken – Brigid Kemmerer

Review: A Heart So Fierce and ..

When I reviewed A Curse So Dark and Lonely I struggled to find the words to tell you how much you needed that book in your life. All I wanted to do was shout from the rooftops how it was a book you needed to read ASAP. Honestly though, writing that review was NOTHING compared to finding the words for A Heart So Fierce and Broken. Seriously, this book was pure perfection. I can’t even explain it, but it was somehow even better than Curse. A Heart So Fierce and Broken starts off essentially when A Curse So Dark and […]
