{Review+Giveaway} What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard @alexandraballar @FierceReads

{Review+Giveaway} What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard @alexandraballar @FierceReads

What I Lost is a young adult contemporary by Alexandra Ballard. What I Lost is so unlike anything I have read before in young adult, and that was what I loved most about it. I know that there are other books that take place in a rehabilitation/therapy center, and books that center around the issue of anorexia and eating disorders, but I haven’t really read any. I found the whole thing to be super, super interesting. What I Lost follows our main character, Elizabeth as she checks into the facility and through her treatment, as well as a group of other young women being treated at the same place. I loved the raw look we got at each of the characters. I felt like we got to know not only Elizabeth, but also her roommate and some of the other girls. They are also so different and multifaceted. I just love reading books about well crafted flawed characters. This book hit me right in my feelers. I honestly had no idea… Read more »

{Review} Train Wreck by Elise Faber @faberelise

{Review} Train Wreck by Elise Faber @faberelise

Train Wreck is a standalone romantic comedy by Elise Faber. It is also the first standalone novel in the Life Sucks series. I’m not sure if the series is all going to be set in the same town or not. We might get to see totally new couples in each book that are not connected. Either way, I can’t wait for the next book in the series to find out, because Train Wreck was a lot of fun. Train Wreck follow Pepper O’Brien, who life is a total train wreck. She is basically the running joke for her family. I felt kind of bad for her. On one hand, she comes from a big Hollywood family and grew up very privileged, but on the other hand, she just faced one back thing after another. I kept saying to myself, “when is this girl going to catch a break.” Sure, some of the situations were a bit over the top, but in my opinion that just added to the hilarity and… Read more »
