I don’t re-read often, but when I was asked to review the new paperback I was all for it. Having re-read this book has made me want to start re-reading more. It allows you to catch some things you didn’t necessarily see before and it allows you to feel some things you didn’t feel before. It’s quite awesome. Now, into the actual review of the book. This book, even the second time around, was just as thrilling and mind-blowing as before. Even though I knew what was going to happen I was still captivated from beginning to end. The first time I read this one I was completely wrong with what was going on or who did what. Now, with […]
From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of 2014, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age . When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes […]
I honestly didn’t think this series could get any better. I mean, I absolutely LOVED Ashton and Beau’s story in The Vincent Boys and I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Sawyer, the good guy, so I was nervous to pick up The Vincent Brothers since I knew it was all about Sawyer. Boy was I surprised. I think I loved The Vincent Brothers more than the first one. The Vincent Brothers starts off 6 months after The Vincent Boys, Ashton and Beau are living their own lives together, and Sawyer is left trying to pick up the pieces of his broken heart. Enter Lana. I actually really loved Lana, I wasn’t sure based on the barely there appearance she […]
Colleen Hoover sure knows how to write a gripping and emotional rollercoaster of a book. I don’t know how many times I’ve said that very statement, but it holds true with every book that I’ve read of hers. Including November 9. Fallon and Ben meet on the one day that has a huge significance in Fallon’s life. November 9th. As the summary states, they spend an amazing day together and agree to meet up every year on the same date. I loved this aspect of their story, and to me it seemed like it made their relationship much more special. Although, I don’t think I would have been able to do it, I loved the fact that they could. Their chemistry was off […]
Before we get into my full review I want to point something out. I was a beta reader for Ashley (I was a part of The Hundred). I read the beta version and was totally in love with the book, but there were a few things that didn’t make it perfect. I then re-read the book (the final version) and that is what this review is based on). To answer my question above: lose my mind. I would literally lose my mind. No, you’re thinking…”Erica, c’mon, you won’t literally lose your mind.” But, yes I will. It’s not figurative…it will be gone and I won’t know what to do. I wouldn’t think, I wouldn’t be creative, I wouldn’t be able to simply…do. […]
ERICA’S REVIEW How exciting does this book sound? So exciting. It’s a book that you have never heard of before…or let me speak for myself, I have never heard of before. Conjoined twins, but…it’s so much more beyond that. The story of Tippi and Grace is wonderful and I will recommend this book (even though my rating is a measly 3 stars). Erica, why only 3 stars if it was such a wonderful story? 1. It was unbelievably predictable and that took away from my enjoyment. 2. The family aspect was a little…”eh.” 3. The. Ending.
ERICA’S REVIEW Unfriended was just a good story, nothing spectacular, but it kept me engaged the whole time. It seems like 2.5 stars is super low, but there really isn’t much bad to say about this other than I am too old to have connected and it just didn’t sit well with me in the topics. what petty topics are you talking about Erica? 1. Worrying about the popular table and if you will ever sit there 2. Friends getting mad for their friends trying to make new friends 3. Boys, boys, boys So, let’s start with the worrying about sitting at the popular table. C’mon. Okay. WAIT! Before I go on with this review, I think that if I were […]
This genre isn’t one I normally would pick up, but reading the synopsis had me hooked and I just had to have this book. Plus, the cover was gorgeous and that added even more of a need. Horror movies are my go-to. I just love everything horror, but tend to veer away from horror books because I never knew if my mind could handle it. Me loving horror does not mean I handle it very well. I get scared quite easily and I was hoping this book would do that. And…it did. Throughout this book I got so many goose bumps and was freaked out. That is something I loved about Danielle Vega. I knew that she would have […]
