Synopsis

Finding Audrey is the first book by Sophie Kinsella that I have read, and I quite enjoyed it!

Not only was I lured in by the numerous five star ratings from my GoodReads friends, but also the fact that Finding Audrey is about a girl with anxiety disorders. Continue reading

Synopsis

Okay, wow, this book was very strange. I had high expectations because of the comparisons to Gone Girl and I honestly didn’t like that I went into it knowing it would be similar. It kind of took away from some of the big things that happened in this novel.

However, this was a crazy book. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

love this book. This and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before are both so beautifully wonderful I don’t think I’ll ever get over them.

Lara Jean is such a special main character. I love her family, her personality, her culture, everything about her life. I thought that this duology would just be a typical high school romance series. But no, these books have a lot more to them then just romance. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

This is the first book I’ve read by Jodi Picoult, and given that it was written with her daughter, I have a feeling it’s quite different than all of her other novels.

I actually quite enjoyed this story. Since the synopsis includes a fairy tale, it may seem like this book is too young for teens. But I actually really liked the world that was created in Between the Lines. I’ve never read a story with the main character falling in love with a fictional fairy tale character, and I think that’s just such an intriguing premise. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

If I hadn’t been assigned this book my second semester of my senior year of high school, I maybe would have read it more thoroughly. That said, I don’t feel right writing a review for 1984 because I feel like I’m cheating. But I also don’t like not writing anything after “finishing” a book. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

I don’t know why it took me almost a month to write a review for this. I guess I kind of forgot…

I loved this novel. Jane Austen writes so beautifully. I love the way she writes her characters. The only thing about this novel that was maybe a little bothersome was the fact that sometimes it just felt like there was nothing going on. Each day the girls would go to a ball and gossip. Nothing would really happen. Continue reading
