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

 

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

Synopsis

 

 

Wow, was this a strange book! I actually knew a spoiler going into the novel. But, it wasn’t too bad.

I appreciated the way it was narrated, with Mr. Utterson. It was interesting to see someone else’s perspective. This book is so short! There’s not much I can say about it without totally spoiling it. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

 

I don’t really know what to say about this novel. I had to read it for my British Literature class, and therefore would have been fine had I not read it. This book is nothing like what the movie adaptations portray. And it was very very confusing, at least in the beginning when Victor was preparing to make the Creature. Continue reading
