Looking for Alaska by John Green 4/5 stars. What a beautiful story. It wasn’t what I expected from John Green (so many porn references what is this), but I certainly recognised aspects from his themes similar to Paper Towns. Somebody spoiled the whole drama for me years ago so I didn’t get to enjoY the suspense. This book felt so authentic to teen angst. I felt every bit of emotion each of… Read More
I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) by Pittacus Lore 2.5/5 stars. It certainly wasn’t like anything I’ve ever read– except for Zeroes. This was a fantastic read but I spaced out a lot. If I wasn’t motivated to reach my reading goal, I would’ve gone into a slump. However I may have not paid enough attention due to a party going on downstairs, as well as screaming children outside my door.
Switched (Trylle #1) by Amanda Hocking 3/5 stars. When I read the blurb, I honestly thought it’d be way worse than what I’ve now read. However I’m not really interested in Trolls. It’s a little too heavy on the side of high fantasy for me, sorry. It was moderately well written, but I find that for most high fantasy reads. I liked the protagonist’s rational mind, she wasn’t a cliche like almost… Read More
The Heir (The Selection #4) by Kiera Cass 4/5 stars. THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST I’VE READ, besides the finale; The One, from the prev trilogy. I must say, when I read on the first page how chill she was about becoming queen, I thought she’d be another bloody Mer. But noooo, thankfully. She has a lot more depth to her than her mother. I SHIP HER AND BADEN SO MUCH. As… Read More
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West 4/5 stars. This book was very sweet! I definitely shipped the main couple. It was a corny read, but I enjoyed every second of it! The writing style was so comfortable for me to read in. This has introduced me to a new favourite author, I’m sure 🙂 The main protag was funny as heck, and I’d definitely suggest this to somebody who wants a quick… Read More
Will Grayson, Will Grayson (Will Grayson, Will Grayson) by John Green and David Levithan 2/5 stars. Things that were 5 stars:– the gayness– the humour Things that I hated almost as much as The Abudance of Katherines’ footnotes for that ‘quirky’ format:– the random format of; “me: [bla bla bla]gideon: [reply]” JUST……. WRITE… WITH “”. PLEASE. This wasn’t my fave from Green NOR Levithan. And Levithan is my fave. I’m disappointed I’m… Read More
Six Earlier Days (Every Day 0.5) by David Levithan 3/5 stars. This wasn’t nearly as good as the other 2, but I’m glad I read it. I thought it’d be just as important, but it wasn’t. Only 47 pages, it’s a good taster to see if you’d like Everyday.
The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1) by Jenny Han 3.75/5 stars. OHMYGOSH THAT’S ALL????? I wanna didn’t know WHO I wasn’t meant to ship her with. At times it was Conrad, other times Jeremiah, and then randomly Cam at the end. I’m still torn between the first two boys. Can is too new, he can leave. I NEED THIS TO CONTINUE. I WANT MY ENDING. This book was lovely to read,… Read More
All are by SJM (obviously). 4/5 stars. It still isn’t something I’d read again; BUT THIS IS BACK AT THE VERY BEGINNING WHEN CEL WAS ACTUALLY BADASS AND NOT A DICK LIKE SHE IS CURRENTLY. I loved it. Kicking sexism in the butt like a pro assassin ;D I found this instalment pointless, sorry. It had a sweet ending but I feel like nothing happened… “For the first time in a long… Read More
Every Last Promise by Kristin Halbrook 3/5 stars. This reminded me of We Were Liars, and the plot twist at the end shocked me nearly as much, but I still prefer reading WWL than this. It was an intriguing read but still full enough for me to go take a nap straight after. The writing was good! It respected the idea of sexual assault. It was definitely a book that was needed… Read More
Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel 3/5 stars. The main relationship w Damen and Ever (her name choice…… really??) was super powerful and cute… EXCEPT IT WAS BLOODY INSTALOVE. *screaming internally* The story was mediocre, it’s definitely overhyped in the paranormal romance section. It’s basically Fallen by Lauren Kate. But.. knock off. Not nearly as good. I wouldn’t read this again, but I suggest it to younger teens who like Fallen… Read More
How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn SparksMy rating: 3 of 5 stars 3/5 stars. It could’ve been worse; but it could’ve been better. It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. But this was published in 2005, and since 2005– the world of vampire FanFiction was evolved, and my standards have too. Honestly it wasn’t as cringey as I thought it’d ever be?? I feel indifferent to this… Read More
