{ARC Review+Halloween Costume Ideas} #Renegades by @Marissa_Meyer @FierceReads

{ARC Review+Halloween Costume Ideas} #Renegades by @Marissa_Meyer @FierceReads

Renegades is the first book in a new series of the same name by author powerhouse Marissa Meyer. Marissa’s Lunar Chronicles has been on my TBR for forever, but I recently read, and loved! Heartless. So I was super excited to pick up Renegades because I am obsessed with super heroes. Ever since I watched X-men, years and years ago, I was instantly hooked. And what was extra cool, was that Marissa Meyer said something really similar in her foreword note to Renegades. So extra yay for that! Renegades is set on the premise of a world like our own, where super powers have started to emerge. And with those powers a group of villains, called the Anarchists gained power and actually were in control for a number of years, so the world was a very different place, full of violence and chaos. Enter the Renegades, who swooped in to save the day. And right after these events, our story takes place. It was really cool to see a world where… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Berserker by Emmy Laybourne @FierceReads

{Review+Giveaway} Berserker by Emmy Laybourne @FierceReads

Berserker is a young adult norse fantasy novel by Emmy Laybourne. Emmy Laybourne is an author with such diverse skills. She has written apocalyptic stories, fantasy stories, monster stories and I have to say I am a huge fan of hers. My favorite book of hers is Sweet, but Berserker was a good read as well. The description of Berserker immediately caught my attention. I love anything having to do with mythology, and norse mythology is super interesting to me. Plus, the tag line is killer- “Are Hanne’s powers a gift from the old Norse gods, or a curse?”. I was instantly intrigued. What are her gifts? Berserker is told in multiple points of views. Hanne is our main character, but we also get to meet her siblings, and Owen, a cowboy from the west. Which brings me to the thing that I enjoyed most about this book, and what I am excited to see explored more in upcoming novels. I loved the dual setting. Berserker takes place both on… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin @SwoonReads @maggersann

{Review+Giveaway} The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin @SwoonReads @maggersann

The Big F is author Maggie Ann Martin’s debut novel, and I have to say, I loved it! The Big F is a young adult contemporary romance that is sure to put a smile on your face. This book gave me major Kasie West vibes…obviously in a great way! I honestly enjoyed everything about this book. Right from the moment I picked it up, to the very last page, I had a great time reading The Big F. Can we also talk about the awesome cover for a moment. I love it! I think it is so perfect for this story. I love the doodling on the cover as well. The Big F is the story of Dani and Luke. Dani thought she had her future planned out, until an F got her rejected from her dream college. Can I first just say, this would have sent me into a tailspin when I was in high school, so I really related to Dani. I liked her character a lot. And… Read more »

{Review} Internet Famous by @danika_stone @SwoonReads @FierceReads

{Review} Internet Famous by @danika_stone @SwoonReads @FierceReads

Internet Famous is a young adult standalone by author Danika Stone. I loved Danika’s previous novel, All the Feels so much, so when I saw that her latest novel was about a blogger, I knew this was another fandom-centric novel that I was going to really enjoy. And I really did enjoy Internet Famous. Not quite as much as I loved All the Feels, but I thought Internet Famous was a great read. It was fun in a different way than I expected it to be. In Internet Famous, our main character, Madi is a famous movie and tv show blogger. She does these live re-watches of all kinds of movies and tv series that sound epically awesome! I want to find a blogger that does something similar, because I really love the idea! I enjoyed Madi. She is a normal girl with her own set of teenage issues that made her very relate-able. I loved that the book spoke the jargon of fandoms and internet communities. The glossary at… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Kissing Max Holden by @KatyUpperman ‏@SwoonReads @FierceReads

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Kissing Max Holden by @KatyUpperman ‏@SwoonReads @FierceReads

Kissing Max Holden by Katy Upperman is a young adult contemporary romance that put a huge smile on my face. I really, really loved this book. It was cute, it was swoony and it was a whole lot of fun. Just what I love in my summer beach/pool reads. Max Holden is total book boyfriend material. I did have a few minor issues with the story, which I will discuss below, but overall I really enjoyed Kissing Max Holden. Kissing Max Holden is told from Jillian’s point of view. She grew up next door to Max Holden and they used to be very close, but because of personal issues in Max’s family, he has withdrawn a lot and because distant with Jillian. It is interesting because Jillian and Max still ran in similar friend groups at school so they are circling around in each other’s lives. I love a friends to more story, so I really liked the various facets to Jillian and Max’s relationship. It is clear that they… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer @Honeybourn @SwoonReads @FierceReads

{Review+Giveaway} Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer @Honeybourn @SwoonReads @FierceReads

Wesley James Ruined My Life by Jennifer Honeybourn is a young adult standalone contemporary romance. I loved this book. This is going to be a unique review because there were a few issues I had with the main character, but they really didn’t detract from my enjoyment one bit because while reading Wesley James Ruined My Life, I had a major case of perma-smile. I really really enjoyed myself while I was reading this story. It just had this adorable quality to it that I can’t pin point. Jennifer Honeybourn did a great job with the writing, because this book won me over big time. Wesley James Ruined My Life is the story of Quinn and her ex best friend turned bitter enemy Wesley. Wesley and Quinn used to be super close, then they had a huge falling out when they were younger and Wesley and his family moved away for five years. Quinn basically blames Wesley for every bad thing that is going on in her life. Now that Wesley… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Perfectly Imperfect Match by @KendraHighley @entangledteen

{Review+Giveaway} The Perfectly Imperfect Match by @KendraHighley @entangledteen

The Perfectly Imperfect Match is the third book in the young adult contemporary romance series, called the Suttonville Senitels by Kendra C. Highley. I love that this series centers around the baseball team. It is a series formula that works so well with me, but before the Suttonville Sentiels I had only seen it done in the adult sports romance world, so I love that there is a young adult series that is doing something similar.  I read and LOVED The Bad Boy Bargain  and Swinging at Love, which I also thoroughly enjoyed.  This series is a welcome smash hit for me! And The Perfectly Imperfect Match is a great addition to the series. Just like all of the previous books in this series, The Perfectly Imperfect Match is chock full of cuteness. That is the best way to describe it. It is like a smile in a box. All of the books in this series are actually. Perfectly Imperfect Match is the story of Dylan and Luck. I liked this couple… Read more »
