Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer Review

Spoiler Review here


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

 

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

Hamlet by William Shakespeare Review

Synopsis

 

I really liked this play. It is chock-full of witty and humorous remarks. There were times I found myself actually laughing out loud, but other times when I gasped because of this play’s suspense. I can now say Hamlet is definitely one of my all time favorite characters. He is quite a witty and funny guy.

At the same time though, Hamlet is quite a tragic story. Of course I had to know this since it was written by Shakespeare, but still this play shocked me. I read this for school, but unlike most school-assigned literature, I actually enjoyed Hamlet. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

I can’t believe my favorite book series is over.

This book was a very emotional journey. I don’t even know where to begin. I love love love the Liars. Vicious was amazing. Sara Shepard pushed the limits at some parts, and I must say I love her for doing so. She had my heart pounding, tears forming in my eyes. I don’t know how she was able to do it after fifteen books, but she still shocked me.

Synopsis

 

I absolutely enjoyed this book! I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve read a book where I genuinely loved so many of the characters.

I just really liked the storyline, how Lara Jean’s love letters get sent without her knowing. I mean, it sounds like such a nightmare! I loved reading the way Lara Jean handled the whole situation. Continue reading

Never Have I Ever by Sara Shepard Review

(Book 2 in The Lying Game series)
Recommended for: lovers of mystery and murder, and fans of Pretty Little Liars

Spoiler Review here


Synopsis

 

I am always so captivated by Sara Shepard’s writing. I forgot how much I love this series! I read The Lying Game back in March of 2013, so it was a little rough for me in the beginning of this book because I had forgotten most of the first book’s events. But I’m so glad I chose to continue the series because I just really love Sutton and Emma’s story! It’s so fun to follow Emma in her investigation. (I would even go as far to say I’m starting to like this series more than Pretty Little Liars, but those books will always hold a special place in my heart.)
