New to Me – The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo

New to Me – The Way You ..

In 2018 I had the idea to have readers and friends read my favorite books from years past. I had 20+ amazing people sign up and read some of my all-time favorite books. They took the time out of their busy lives and reading schedules and read books I love and shared what they thought on my blog. It was a lot of fun and I got to see some new takes on old favorites. 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 […]

I was really excited for Cherry. It seemed like a book that would be something different in the YA book world and it was. It was very sex positive for females taking control of their bodies and what they want. It also had a great friendship aspect which I have said more than once I think I lacking in YA. All of that really worked for me. But when all was said in done I ended up being disappointed. The entire book is written in 3rd person but for 4 different people’s stories. Because of that I found myself being […]

They were written in a synopsis for my publisher when I was first trying to sell them on the idea for a book called A WEEK OF MONDAYS. Of course, you can’t write an entire book about a one-sentence character. Just like you can’t live your entire life as a one-sentence person. But every character has to begin somewhere. And this is where Ellie began for me. As an idealistic, ambitious sixteen-year-old junior with a […]

Review: The Winner’s Kiss – Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Kis..

When you think series end you immediately start to internally panic. Whether it is a book or a movie or a TV show an ender can only go one of two ways. You can either be blown away by how the author/writer/director ended things or you can be so disappointed that the series will forever be ruined. I have had both happen and the disappointment sucks. Insert The Winner’s Kiss. Having been late to the party with the series I became an immediate fan after reading The Winner’s Curse. I then devoured The Winner’s Crime and was itching to see […]

    I liked this book, I did. I wasn’t crazy in love with it like I had wanted to be after This Song Will Save Your Life, but I liked it. Arden grew a lot in this story. She saw how she wasn’t who she thought she was and that there was more to her than expected. That was the part that I really enjoyed. What I didn’t like was the Peter part and the “stalking” him in NYC part and his reaction. Personally I found his reaction to the whole thing just odd. It didn’t make sense to […]
