Blog Review Tour: Under the Influence

Blog Review Tour: Under the Influence

May 11, 2015 0 Comments Christy

Under the Influence was a great read that had unique and interesting characters. I really liked Dalton. When things got tough he did what he had to do in order to insure wrongs were made right. Both he and Spencer came from less than desirable backgrounds. Their young lives were rough. Spencer by far lucked out when she was placed with a good family. Eventually Dalton was placed there too. It was then that Dalton […]

Release Day & Review: All the Rage by Courtney Summers

Release Day & Review: All the Rage by Courtney Summers

April 14, 2015 0 Comments Christy

All the Rage is written by a new to me author. The synopsis sounded really interesting so I thought I’d give it a try. For the most part I think the book was okay. It didn’t really blow me away. At times it was slow going. The suspense aspect was good, but I was easily able to figure that it out pretty easily. I found Romy to be quite a strange girl. I can’t really […]

This is the second time I’ve read Back to You. The first time I left a small review on Goodreads. I guess it really wasn’t a review. More like a sentence or two. “I loved everything about this book. It had me sobbing like a baby a few times, but that’s a sign of a really good story. Heartfelt. Loved it. Highly recommend.” See. Not much of a review. Anyway, this book is one of […]

I honestly can’t pinpoint how I actually feel about this book. I feel like I’m all over the place on the love/hate spectrum with this one because I loved most of it, but then I got to the ending and after reading it I was left feeling disappointed and possibly confused.This book is about Avery, a college swimmer who goes home for Thanksgiving when her plane crashes over the Rocky’s. The story flashes back and […]

March 31, 2015 0 Comments Christy

First of all I just want to say that Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. She’s an automatic auto buy for me. To say I love her books would be an understatement. I love everything about her books. Her writing style. Her characters. Her ability to grab the readers attention from the very first page and hold it until the very end of the book. Owen Mason Gentry aka O.M.G. is an amazing […]

I could almost see the tension leave their shoulders. “Look at our Rainbow, all grown up,” Butch said, pretending to wipe away a tear. Unlike the reluctance Buttercup had shown, Butch was all for me getting a job. He appreciated the fact I wanted to work for what I wanted. “Aw, don’t cry, Creston,” I said, patting him on the back. “Butch,” he corrected. “Rain,” I countered. “I’ll never understand why you’d want to change […]

The title says it all…. As I sit here my mind is working overtime trying to come up with the words to express my true feelings about this book. I literally felt so many emotions while I was reading it. I was sucked in from the very first page. This book was unlike anything I’ve read before. Sure there were a few predictable things. But the plot itself was unique, and that’s what I loved […]

I’ve heard good things about this one. It’s gotten high ratings and the overall buzz is that it’s a really good read. You know what? I agree. My favorite character in this book is Garrett. I loved Garrett from the beginning. The captain of Briars hockey team, he’s the college hottie. Every girl wants a piece of him. A lot of them have had him. In a hook up sort of way. He doesn’t do […]

Omigosh this book is amazing and is masterfully crafted. When I read the synopsis I just knew I had to read it. It sucked me in from the very first page and had my mind working overtime trying to figure out what would happen next. The suspense in this book is unbelievable. Ms Torre did an excellent job of holding my interest until the end. Every time I thought I’d have it figured out something […]

Going into this one I wasn’t quite sure how I’d feel about it considering it’s centered around two males and one female, but I think Ms Keeland did an excellent job of writing it. I’m not really a love triangle type of person. I’d prefer a hero and heroine, but I didn’t really mind it in this story. I’m a big fan of Ms Keeland’s work so I knew I had to read this book. […]

I have to be honest here… I think I may have liked this one better than the first one. The reason why I know this is because I actually had to go back into Boomerang and skim it through a bit and see what exactly Alison did to her Ex in that book. Oops. :X After going through something horrific with his last girlfriend in college, Adam has closed himself off from any sort of romantic […]

While I enjoyed this book, I don’t think it was as good as the first four. I guess Remy spoiled the series for me. I mean don’t get me wrong. This was a great read, but to me it didn’t hold my attention as well as the previous books. I didn’t get that “I can’t put it down” feeling. Pandora is an odd duck. I’ve always felt she was the weird friend. It isn’t that […]

I just love this series. The characters are all really interesting. And I love how they’re a tight knit group who appear in all the books. I’ve been excited about this book for a while now. The tension between Craig and Gwen has been growing. I really wanted to find out what happened to make their friendship get off track. Gwen sort of ticked me off in the last book. (Sorry Bethany) She grew really […]

My thoughts… First I’d like to thank Courtney Cole and Badass Marketing for the opportunity to read and review an advance copy of this book before release day. I truly appreciate your trust in me with this “secret” project. Well, I call it secret since not much has been released about it. Now onto my review. WOW! I’ll say it again. WOW! What an amazingly, wild, mind fucking ride. This story is intense, and gritty, […]

October 20, 2014 2 Comments Christy

My thoughts… Wow! What a great story. This book is so unlike any that Ms Keeland has written. It’s a young adult that sort of turns into a new adult at the very end. I really loved this one. Being honest, I had no idea what this story was about when I signed up for the review tour. All I knew was that it was written by Ms Keeland and Dylan Scott. That it was […]

My thoughts…STOP!!! – the first few lines of this review may be spoilish. Against my better judgement I’m giving this book four stars. There are a few things I consider “hard limits” when I’m selecting books to read. One of them is cheating. I don’t like it. I don’t like it when it’s not mentioned in the synopsis letting me know ahead of time. I can understand for the sake of this story (plot wise) […]

My thoughts… This has got to be one of the most beautifully written stories I have ever had the pleasure to read. I experienced so many feels while reading this book. I laughed a lot. And cried a lot. Like snotty blubbering tears. This book tore me up and spit me back out and I loved every minute of it. Bright Side is easily one of the best books I’ve read this year. I can […]
