Hooked Review

Image
Hooked by Catherine Greenman 4 Stars To be honest part of what attracted me to this book was the cover. I'm one of those people that has baby fever really bad. Anyway, a book with a baby seemed right up my alley. This book was not really was I was expecting. The main character, Thea, fell in love pretty fast and the way that she felt kind of got on my nerves. I probably felt that obsessed or "hooked" at some point in my teen years, so I can't blame her. However, I felt the struggles in this book were pretty damn realistic. It's not a super difficult life, but it's not what some teenage girls may dream of when they get pregnant. That aspect is probably what bumped it up to a four star rating for me. If not for that, I probably would've rated it a 3 out of 5. Thea was whiny, obsessive, and completely off in la-la land a good amount of the time. The book was still enjoyable, but I feel it could have been made better. Either way, I'd read a sequel just to s…

Never Never Review

Never Never Part 1 by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher 5 Stars
What can I possibly say about this novel without giving the plot away? I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. I needed to know what happened to these people. I found myself trying to figure it out and let me tell you, I still have tons of questions and no answers. It was a completely addicting read for me. At the very end I needed more and I know I'm not the only one. If you love mysteries and you love feeling like you've been thrown for a loop, I highly recommend this book. I honestly wish I could say more. Have you read this book? How did you feel about it? I need to discuss it with someone, please leave a comment below. Xoxo, Gabriella

The DUFF Review

Image
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger 5 Stars I decided to read The DUFF because I always felt like the ugly one out of my group of friends. I actually still do even though I'm in my twenties. I don't think that feeling ever really goes away. I was interested in seeing the thoughts of someone like me and seeing if they got the happy ending that I longed for. I actually didn't love the main character, Bianca, from the start. I'm still not sure if I do. When it came to her thoughts, I began to hope I didn't sound that annoying. Not to say she's a bad character, she's actually pretty great. I just found myself a little annoyed at times, but what book doesn't have even one thing that gets on your nerves? Nothing is perfect. Moving on to Wesley Rush. He was my absolute favorite character in this book. I mean, I loved him from the very start even if he seemed like a douche. Maybe this is because I had my own Wesley at some point. Actually a few Wesleys, you get the point.…

Dorothy Must Die Stories Review

Image
Dorothy Must Die Stories by Danielle Paige 5 Stars I am so glad that this exists! I loved being able to get a glimpse into what happened before Amy Gumm arrived in Oz. After each novella I became more suspicious of each character and in a way I kind of loved it. Was the magic twisting Dorothy, was it a person controlling her, or was this who she really was? Is Glinda really even a "good witch"? Has the Wizard really changed? I was left with questions, but I didn't mind. The stories were full of little things that don't seem important, but then it all comes together and you start to think. I have my theories about who is truly bad and whatnot. I'm excited to find out if my theories are correct. It was also nice to get in the heads of 3 other characters. I highly recommend to anyone who loved Dorothy Must Die and even though they are novellas, I suggest you still read book one first. I know some people don't care, but I think in this case it's really helpful.…

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares Review

Image
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan 4 Stars I had originally planned on saving this book for Christmas and I kind of wish I had. I feel like reading it so early in the year might have taken away from the experience? I could be wrong. The story was cute and I'm all about people getting out of their bubble, I'm trying to myself, but at the same time I wasn't completely in love with the characters. However, at the end I still found myself wanting more. I hate how it just ended so abruptly. Out of fear of giving away anything, I'll just keep it short and say that it's a cute contemporary especially for the Winter time. If there were ever to be a sequel, I'd read it. Xoxo, Gabriella
