The White Rose by Amy Ewing – Review

The White Rose by Amy Ewing – Review

The White Rose was the second book in The Lone City series, and it sets Violet on a path toward revolution. It picks up right where the last book left off –  Violet and Ash have just been caught together and Ash has been hauled off to await his execution while Violet has to deal with the Duchess (since she didn’t follow through with Lucien’s plan to fake her death). Well, of course, Lucien does his magic […]

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler – ARC Review – ANOTHER All-Time Favorite!!

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler – ARC Review – ANOTHER All-Time Favorite!!

Read the synopsis for this book and you can probably imagine why it was so powerful. The fact that it’s inspired by real events is simply chilling. A book like this (when done right) can make people think deeply and transform them. This book was done right. What fed my addiction: Kate’s POV. One aspect of the book that I was surprised about was the POV. We found out pretty early on that Kate didn’t actually see anything – […]

Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers – An All-Time Favorite

Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers – An All-Time Favorite

This book! Even though I just finished it last night, I couldn’t wait to come write my review. Usually I hold off on declaring books all-time favorites, but I think I’m going to break that rule too. There was just so much about Truest to love! On the surface, there’s not a lot going on – this is definitely a character-driven book rather than a plot-driven book. But, man, did I love these characters! When Silas comes to town, West […]

Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid –  Review & Giveaway

Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid – Review & Giveaway

Never Always Sometimes is a YA contemporary romance with a bit of a twist. It’s the type of romance where you’re not exactly sure how things will end. Will Dave and Julia end up together or are they truly better as friends? It’s not a simple answer, and this isn’t a simple romance. What I loved: Dave and Julia. I really loved the relationship between Dave and Julia. They fit with each other and had a sort […]

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway – 5 Star Review

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway – 5 Star Review

This book was so much more than I expected it to be! Okay, for some reason I didn’t go back and reread the synopsis before I picked this one up. I just noticed that a lot of people I trust (I’m talking to you, Shannon at It Starts at Midnight) had loved it and realized that it had just been released, so I decided to go for it. All I remembered was that it was […]

The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi – Review

The Night We Said Yes is a sweet, fun romance with a unique spin – it’s told over the span of just two nights. The book switches back and forth between the night that Ella and Matt met and a night, a year later, when he returns after disappearing for six months. You learn about their relationship in between through Ella’s thoughts and memories on the latter night.  What I loved: The alternating story. I really enjoyed […]
