Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West

February 7, 2019 2 Comments Regina

There’s just something about Kasie West’s writing-style that makes an otherwise silly plot and shallow romance into something sophisticated and poignant. Her stories are addictive, entertaining, and just plain fun–in the truest sense of the word. The majority of the action unfolds on a zombie-romance movie set and in the on-set trailer of 17 year-old Lacey Barnes (FUN, right!?). Lacey is an ambitious and talented teen on the verge of stardom now that she is […]

Have you ever seen the COMPLETELY ABSORBING AND BRILLIANT film starring Guy Pearce called Memento (2000)? (If not, you should get right on that because you’re a couple of decades behind.) Victoria Scott brings the same kind of mind-boggling magic to her upcoming novel from Entangled Teen. From what I gather via social media buzz in the book world, We Told Six Lies is hands-down one of the most anticipated upcoming releases in young adult […]

The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel is the perfect read to bridge your summer book binges over into your more selective fall reading schedule. This witty and poignant novel taps into the same vein of magic as Bridget Jones’s Diary, and any gal or guy who has loved and/or lost will enjoy the personal and romantic journeys of the two leading characters. I absolutely love modern retellings of romantic literary classics, and this […]

My thoughts… ~ Breathtakingly beautiful. Heartbreaking. Amazingly brilliant. I couldn’ t put it down. Wow! What an emotional read. I cried many times while reading this book, guys. No joking. A lot. I’ m going to be honest. I didn’ t really know much about this book when I asked to review it. Ms Wilder didn’ t give a whole lot away regarding it, but since I’ m a big fan of her work I […]

My thoughts… Fighting Redemption is a highly emotional read. There were several time’ s I cried while reading it. :/ Another blogger wrote a review on this book and highly suggested it. I decided I would give it a try. This is a new to me author so I wasn’ t familiar with her work. The writing style is a bit different since the author is Australian, but that didn’ t take away from the […]
