{Review+Giveaway} Hangry by Lily Kate

{Review+Giveaway} Hangry by Lily Kate

Hangry is a contemporary romantic comedy by author Lily Kate. I thoroughly enjoyed Hangry. For those of you that don’t know, Hangry is a word to describe people that get angry or irritable when they are hungry. It is just as hilarious as the title and summary lead you to believe that it is. This book had me laughing pretty much non-stop from beginning to end. If you are looking for a book that is a flat out good time, give Hangry a try. I can’t wait to read more novels from Lily Kate. Hangry is a romance as well. It is the story of Lexi and Bradley. Lexi cannot stand Bradley, but when she gets so hangry she can’t stand it anymore she “sells her soul” for a hamburger. (Seriously, just thinking about this book has me grinning like a fool.) Lexi and Bradley are hilarious together. There is tons of URST, and the chemistry between the two of them is off the charts! Whatever you do, don’t write… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Surviving High School: A Novel by @LelePons & @MelissadelaCruz

{Review+Giveaway} Surviving High School: A Novel by @LelePons & @MelissadelaCruz

Surviving High School is a novel co-authored by vine superstar Lele Pons (and don’t worry, I had never heard of her either. I am more of a youtube kind of gal.) and author Melissa De La Cruz. Surviving High School is a standalone young adult contemporary comedy. This book cracked me up. It is certainly not a book to take overly seriously. It is very irreverent, but hilarious! I loved all of the pop culture references, and the main character, Lele is a hoot. She is not the most serious or deep individuals ever to grace the halls of high school, but she cracked me up. I am not really sure if this is based at all on Lele’s high school experience, and I don’t know what to think if it was…even very loosely. Either way, this is a book to read, laugh and not take too seriously. If you do that, I think you will have a good time. Surviving High School seems to be a very polarizing book… Read more »

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

Romancing the Nerd is the second book in the Nerd series by Leah Rae Miller. Each of the books can be read as a standalone, and while the first book looks really cute and has been on my TBR pile since its’ release, I have yet to read it. However, I had no problem jumping right in with this book. I think the connection with the two is Dan. He was a minor secondary character in The Summer I became a Nerd. I loved Dan. I really liked Zelda too, but Dan held a special place in my heart. As is my preference with contemporary romances, Romancing the Nerd is told in dual narrative between Zelda and Dan. This book is cute and really funny read. Zelda and Dan are both nerds at heart, and while Zelda is also a what she would consider a nerd on the outside, Dan is a nerd turned popular jock. They each have had a crush on the other for years, which is adorable…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Don’t Get Caught by @KurtDinan @SourcebooksFire

{Review+Giveaway} Don’t Get Caught by @KurtDinan @SourcebooksFire

Don’t Get Caught is a hilarious young adult book by Kurt Dinan. I am not exaggerating AT ALL when I say that my face was literally sore from all of the smiling and laughing I did while reading Don’t Get Caught. (I’m not sure what that says about my face muscles. Maybe I need to be smiling more to work them out. I do suffer from Resting B Face..but I digress.) The point I am trying to make is Don’t Get Caught is the most fun I have had reading a book in a long time. It is just screaming to get made into a movie. I would watch it over and over again. There are so many things that I just loved about Don’t Get Caught, but the main one is how I think this book will appeal to such a wide audience. I think readers old and young will laugh and love Max’s story, and I think both guys and girls are perfect target audiences for this tale…. Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick

{ARC Review+Giveaway} It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick

It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick is a young adult contemporary novel that will have you laughing your butt off. Leave all of your political agendas, and social views behind and sit back for a couple of hours of really witty dialogue, and pure irreverent hilarity. I thoroughly enjoyed Caitlin and her cousin Heller’s whirlwind weekend. The end was surprisingly sweet too. It’s All Your Fault is a very fun book. You have to put your sensitivities aside, and just let yourself go with it. If you do, I think you will have a blast with It’s All Your Fault. Paul Rudnick is one funny dude. It’s All Your Fault is the story of what happens when you mix a very sheltered, very religious “good girl” with her very famous, very do as you please, try everything once cousin. Caitlin and Heller used to be close when they were younger but they had a falling out over a big (and mysterious) event in their past. You eventually find out… Read more »

{Review} Letters to Zell by Camille Griep @CamilleTheGriep

{Review} Letters to Zell by Camille Griep @CamilleTheGriep

  Where to start with this one? Letters to Zell is a hilarious and zany ride that takes what we knew of fairy tale princesses and turns it on its’ head. Told in letter format, Letters to Zell starts off with a letter to Zell (Rapunzel) from Ceci (Cinderella- but don’t call her that! She hates it!). Apparently, Zell up and left her princess friends to run off and tend to Unicorns. Zell, Ceci, Bianca (Snow White) and Rory (Sleeping Beauty) are all a part of a book club, and the other princesses are not too happy that Zell left them without any notice. The letters drop you right in the middle of their world, and it takes a good bit of time to get your bearings. Since the book is told in letter format, and alternates between the princesses, the author- Camille Greip, has to weave details into each letter. Although this method took longer than a couple setting the stage paragraphs or even chapters would have, it felt… Read more »

{Review} Rules of Payne by Elizabeth Lynx

{Review} Rules of Payne by Elizabeth Lynx

Rules of Payne is a new adult or adult (I think it could go either way) romantic comedy. I didn’t really love the cover of the book, but I loved the summary of the book. I am a big fan of rules to follow type books, and office romances, especially in the comedy arena because it normally will lead to some very funny scenes. And I can see where some people would enjoy that aspect of Rules of Payne, but this book really did not work for me. I am sad to say it, but if based on the summary you think it will be a hit for you- I have linked a couple of reviews from people that really Enjoyed Rules of Payne. Rules of Payne is the first book in the Cake Love series. And yes, the main character really liked cake. I really, really wanted to like Morgana. I so did. And Payne- Morgana’s boss. I liked him ok, but my real issue came with Morgana. And… Read more »

{ARC #Review } Boys Don’t Knit by T.S. Easton @TomEaston @FeiwelFriends @MacKidsBooks

{ARC #Review } Boys Don’t Knit by T.S. Easton @TomEaston @FeiwelFriends @MacKidsBooks

I can’t even accurately convey how much I enjoyed Boys Don’t Knit (In Public). This book is kind of my new obsession. It has everything. It’s funny, it’s heartwarming, it has an awesome male protagonist. I can’t say enough good things about this book. Other than, I think everyone needs to read it. Ben is a high school student in the UK and he has a pretty typical group of friends. They always seem to be getting into very minor teen trouble, but what’s funny is that is so not Ben. He is kind of the opposite of all his friends in that regard, but he goes along with them anyway. And of course, he is the one that gets caught red-handed. So off to probation he goes, where is gets a “give something back” community service punishment and he has to take a local class. With slim pickings available he chooses knitting, thinking at least it was taught by his young and hot high school teacher. (Spoiler Alert- It… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Kate’s Escape from the Billable Hour by Petula Parker #TakeControlTBR

{Review+Giveaway} Kate’s Escape from the Billable Hour by Petula Parker #TakeControlTBR

Kate’s Escape from the Billable Hour is 4.5 non-billable hours of pure hilarity. I don’t even know where to begin with my review. Having been a law clerk at a “big law” firm while in law school, and watching some of my classmates go through the grind, I found this book to be extra humorous. I could not stop laughing. I’m at a smaller boutique law firm now, and I am happy to say it is NOTHING like Krapp & Lipschitz, LLP, but I still know a thing or two about billable hours. While I do believe that this book will hold an extra snicker or two for people in the legal profession, I think anyone will get a kick out Kate’s Escape. She is zany and kooky and her “sanity break” as her firm will call it, is such a fun journey. Where can I sign up for mine? Kate is an ideal associate. She has virtually no life outside of the law firm, she bills hundreds of extra… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Books, Blogs and Reality by @RyanRingbloom

{Review+Giveaway} Books, Blogs and Reality by @RyanRingbloom

Books, Blogs and Reality follows four romance book bloggers. It was an interesting setup for a book. It was like reading a high school diary or watching a reality show about my contemporaries. Being a book blogger myself, a lot of the stuff were things and situations that I could directly relate with, but there were also parts of the book that made me want that kind of friendship with fellow bloggers. The four ladies became friends through their similar reading tastes. They commented on the same reviews and started up discussions, which led to a group chat. And they get online and talk to each other every night, about everything. I want that. I have always been a little jealous of the bloggers that make insta friends with other bloggers and become so close and talk all the time. So while I was reading Books, Blogs and Reality, it was really easy to imagine that these were a group of four real bloggers just chatting about books and their… Read more »
