  • Review - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid | Spoilers!

    I'm not usually one for this kind of book - anything that gets too real or hits me in the 'feels' is generally not my jam, but this was a fantastic story of one woman's life in Hollywood from the 50s to the 80s and her life and loves. Spoilers! First of all, I loved the format. The flashback type narrative with the magazine/news articles thrown in for exposition was great. Evelyn's character was fantastically complex - you both loved her and felt disgusted by her, sometimes at the very s…

  • Review - Tweet Cute by Emma Lord | Spoilers!

    Ok, I take back everything I've ever said about YA contemporary. Well, not really, but for the sake of this book I take it all back and I'll put it back later. This was a super cute little book and given I wasn't expecting much, I was blown away. The MCs Pepper and Jack aren't just cardboard cutouts, the typical 'outside girl' or 'hot guy'. They each have their issues, insecurities, and character traits that make them more than the stereotypical YA teen. Spoiler warning!! First of all, I loved t…

  • Review - To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han | Possible Spoilers!

    Yep, another super hyped book that has seriously let me down. First of all, I should've known better. YA Contemporary lets me down on a regular basis so I'm not so sure as to why I expected this to be mind-blowing. Maybe it's because I already filled my quota for amazing YA this month (go read Invisible Boys - infinitely better than whatever this was). Anyway, let's get to why I thought this was meh at best. Full disclosure - I audiobooked this and I have a feeling the narrator made it worse tha…

  • Review - City of Wishes by Rachel Morgan | Spoilers!

    So I audiobooked this one, listening to it as a 6 part story. Where do I begin... SPOILERS!! Alright, now we've gone past the spoiler warning, here are the good points: I liked the magic system. I liked the idea that the fae all had a certain level of power and that wishes were physical things that could be traded/bought/etc. The whole fairy godmother being a wish granter like she's some magical drug dealer with the power and fear-inducing reputation of a mafia boss was great (despite that endi…

  • Review - The Simple Wild by K.A.Tucker | Spoilers!

    I'm going to put this one at 3 stars. It was enjoyable enough but I felt like there was something missing. So before I get into it, here's your warning: SPOILERS!! Right, so let's get into it... First of all, you meet Calla - a 25year-old living at home who gets pretty much everything paid for her (house, bills, etc). In other words, a teenager with a salary. She comes across as a bit self-absorbed and has some serious daddy issues given that apparently her dad didn't care enough to ever come vi…
