Skinny, Donna Cooner

Skinny is a standalone book by Donna Cooner and the first I have ever read by this author.
I thought I would have a real connection with this book after reading the synopsis but unfortunately I didn’t.  I really wanted to love it, but it truly rubbed me the wrong way so to speak. I was so disappointed because I was very much looking forward to …

City of Lost Souls, Cassandra Clare

This is going to be an incredibly hard review to write for me.
 The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is and probably always will be one of my ALL-TIME FAVOURITE Young Adult series to date.  
For all of the non-lovers of Twilight you guys just won’t get this, but this series out-weighed Twilight for me!  I know, “Duh!!!”  Well for me being a mega Twilight fan (Twilight books …

A Beautiful Wedding, Jamie McGuire

Well, for me it was perfect.  The perfect ending to the perfect story.  I know some readers are getting tired of reading the same story with the release of each book because ultimately it’s the same story just told in a different way or by different people. Personally I don’t care about that because I love this story so much that it doesn’t matter how …

Incredibly disappointing!  There is only one more book left and it had better be an epic ending to an epic series but if it’s anything like this installment, then I’ll be sorely disappointed… AGAIN!
I don’t even know where to begin nor do I feel like wasting my time blabbering on about how much I disliked this book.  I barely got through it and James Patterson’s …

I absolutely adored this book!  Friggin’ loved it! 

I bought this book based solely on the breathtakingly gorgeous cover!  I told myself not to do that but I did it anyway and I was not disappointed.  It was amazing!  I loved the characters.  I loved the storyline.  I loved the sad and happy quotes.  I loved the… idea for this book.  It was just awesome.
I’m surprised …

Where to begin?  I love everything about this book.  The writing, the characters, the style, the flow, the cover, the humour…. it’s an endless list.  I LOVE LOVELOVE this series.  It’s phenomenal.

Patch’s character has grown and we’ve learned more about him and the more I learn the more I adore…. and Nora?  Well, her character for me in the beginning was “oh yeah, another female-come-save-me-woe-is-me …

This book was good!  I enjoyed it a lot.  The thing that was so different is the story itself… the fact that a character in a book came to life for an avid reader.  How awesome is that?  I can’t tell you how many times I wished that Damon or Patch or any one of my favourite characters would come to life!   The sub-story was …

Well, I’m going to take awhile to get this review out I think.  I’m a little torn about it.  It’s such a sad novel.  I’m a little devastated by the whole thing actually but it’s an absolutely gorgeous story nonetheless.

I started reading this yesterday morning and finished before I went to sleep last night.  The writing is so phenomenal that it captured …

Okay, I just finished this book and I’m reeling!  Truly I want to wring someone’s neck.  (I just glared at my dog and she moved a few feet away. LOL)  Seriously though, I started this book yesterday and finished it today and all along I was saying, “Man, this book is sort of slow!”  Not slow in a bad way, just spending a lot of …

I really enjoyed this book.   It’s fast paced and the characters are great and not only likeable but loveable.  The leading lady, Ellie, is awesome and strong and I love her and I think Will is just adorable. 

The storyline is great!  It’s different and incredibly intriguing.  Really couldn’t stop turning those pages.
