Review: Fall Into Forever by Beth Hyland

Review: Fall Into Forever by Beth Hyland

Since we read this book together as a buddy book, we decided to review it together! Here are our thoughts on Fall in Forever. THE STORY: Becca: Fall into Forever was a cute but slightly predictable NA love story. Ivy is quiet, withdrawn and scarred from a tragic past. Jon is outrunning his own demons in a typical male way… parties and girls. They meet and are inexplicably drawn to one another. I see this as a usual format in… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Audiobook Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

After recently reading Cinder, I knew this was a series I would continue. Several of my friends mentioned that Scarlet was better than Cinder. Since science fiction books are a tad outside of my comfort zone to begin with, I was a bit hesitant going into Cinder. But once I read it and saw how much I enjoyed it, the fear of the unknown was gone and I was overflowing with excitement. And guess what… Scarlet WAS even better than… Read more »

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

I’ve been trying real hard to branch out a bit from my reading comfort zone. I tend to read a lot of contemporary YA on a consistent basis. So whenever I find myself even slightly interested in something on the fantasy side, I push myself to give it a try. Yes, this sometimes leads to DNF reviews, but a majority of the time lately it seems that I’m pleasantly surprised. The Taking was just slightly out of my comfort zone…. Read more »

Review: Wrecked by Priscilla West

Review: Wrecked by Priscilla West

Warning: This is a NA book and is intended for mature audiences. Let me start by saying I go into every book hoping that I will love it. I do not like to give low ratings, but sometimes I just do not connect to a book and this was one of them. And believe me, after see those pecs on this cover… I REALLY wanted to connect Wrecked is about Lorrie a girl who has lost both of her parents… Read more »
