Books That I Wish Were Movies (Part 1)

  Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid Last summer I wrote a review on this novel and even how it would make a great movie! Reid created such a great story with complex, dynamic relationships. The characters, plot and setting are quite cinematic.   Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins A love story set in Paris? Um, I’m shocked that movie rights have not been bought! The atmosphere, characters and food […]

Review: We Are The Ants

Have you ever read a book that so pleasantly surprises you that you MUST tell everyone you know (and don’t know) about it? Well this is that book! Being the bookish person that I am I have been known to dabble in few book subscription services, this book came from one of those!

Review: Alex, Approximately

  When, I read the synopsis for this novel is was immediately intrigued! I’ve been a big fan of YA romance for awhile and in addition I am rom-com fan that I couldn’t picking this up! While this review is not a complete gush I do feel that it had many redeeming qualities. Let just say that I cannot talk about this book without mention its similarities and differences to another novel I recently reviewed, […]

ARC Review: Geekerella

Thank You Quirk Books and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this novel for review! All thoughts and opinions are COMPLETELY my own! What a cute story! I’m a sucker for a fairytale retellings and it seems they’re plentiful in teen fiction right now. Having the story set around nerd culture really gave it something special! It has all the hallmarks of the traditional Cinderella story–a mean step-mother, two “ugly” stepsisters, a princely love […]

I will admit that not every one will like this […]
