Book Review: “Invisible” by Pete Hautman

Hi everyone!

I got this book from my local public library.

Overview from GoodReads:

Lots of people think Doug Hanson is a freak – he gets beat up after school, and the girl of his dreams calls him a worm. Doug’s only refuge is building elaborate model trains in his basement and hanging out with his best friend, Andy Morrow, a popular football star who could date any girl in school. Doug and Andy talk about everything – except what happened at the Tuttle place a few years back. As Doug retreats deeper and deeper into his own reality, long-buried secrets threaten to destroy both Doug and Andy – and everything else in Doug’s fragile world.

I really thought that This book was about something completely different than what it actually was. This book is a great way to raise awareness for mental illness.

Until my next post,

Stephanie

DNF Book Review: “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio

Hey guys!

So, I got this book from my local public library. I read some of this book and decided to DNF it. I didn’t like this book. At all.

Overview from GoodReads:

Ten-year-old August Pullman wants to be ordinary. He does ordinary things. He eats ice-cream. He plays on his Xbox. He feels ordinary – inside. But Auggie is far from ordinary. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, he has been home-schooled by his parents his entire life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, Auggie’s parents are sending him to a real school. Can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all? Narrated by Auggie and the people around him whose lives he touches, Wonder is a frank, funny, astonishingly moving debut to be read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

Unpopular opinion time.
I didn’t like this book. I got a couple chapters in and I just don’t like it. I like the plot and stuff, but I don’t like how it was written and how it was playing out. The main character is ten years old and that’s who must have written it….it’s so juvenile. My niece is almost thirteen and she can write better than that.

Until my next post,

Book Review: “Almost Midnight” by Rainbow Rowell

Hi everybody!

I got this book from my local public library.

Overview from GoodReads:

Midnights is the story of Noel and Mags, who meet at the same New Year’s Eve party every year and fall a little more in love each time . . . Kindred Spirits is about Elena, who decides to queue to see the new Star Wars movie and meets Gabe, a fellow fan.

Midnights: This was a cute little story. I loved it.
Kindred Spirits: This was also a cute little story. However, it was about Star Wars and (unpopular opinion here) I’ve never seen Star Wars. I had to ask my boyfriend about some of the things related to Star Wars.

My Boyfriend Picks My TBR 2018 | Part #1

Hey guys!

So, instead of just adding books onto my TBR, I decided to change it up. My boyfriend, who knows virtually nothing about any of the books I own, decided he was going to pick 10 books for me to read and whenever I;m done those 10 books, he’ll pick out another 10 books and so on.

Those books are:

  • The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin
  • Swoon by Nina Malkin
  • Nobody Walks by Dennis M. Walsh
  • Backlash by Sarah Darer Littman
  • Frostblood by Elly Blake
  • Twilight: The Graphic Novel: Volume 1 by Stephenie Meyer
  • The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  • Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Until my next post,

Book Review: “Full Moon Kisses” by Ellen Schreiber

Hey everyone!

I got this book from my local public library.

Overview from GoodReads:

This enticing paranormal romance featuring werewolves and the popular girl who loves them is a great conclusion to the Full Moon series. What will Celeste do now that both her heroic boyfriend, Brandon, and her popular ex-boyfriend, Nash, are werewolves? And someone wants to turn her into a werewolf, too. Life is complicated under Legend Run’s full moon.

I loved it, but not as much as the other two books. The ending, though…..why be so stubborn? Seriously. After all your father did for you?!?!

Until my next post,

Book Review: “Magic of the Moonlight” by Ellen Schreiber

Hey guys!

I got this book from my best friend’s mother a couple years ago.

Overview from GoodReads:

Celeste has more to worry about than a secret romance with a hot guy from the wrong side of town. That guy, Brandon, is a werewolf. With gossip and hostility swirling at school, it’s time to find a cure for his nocturnal condition, and perhaps the one person who can help is his scientist father. But what if a “cure” makes things worse and Brandon becomes a werewolf full time? And with rumors circulating that there are werewolves in Legend’s Run, is it possible that there is another among their classmates? To keep Brandon’s secret safe, Celeste must hide her relationship with him from her best friends, but with the Moonlight Ball approaching, she must make a choice. Her dream is to go with her one true love—Brandon. But once the sun goes down, the clouds separate, and the full moon appears, could she really walk into the dance on the arm of a werewolf? In this installment of the sumptuously romantic Full Moon series, Celeste faces her fears and her friends and finds out whether she’s strong enough to stand up for herself and her one true love.

So addictive! Once I picked it up, it was hard to put it back down.

Book Review: “Once in a Full Moon” by Ellen Schreiber

Hi everyone!

I got this book from my local public library.

Overview from GoodReads:

Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend’s Run is famous for them. She’s used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend’s Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight. Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who’s from the wrong side of town. But she can’t deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste’s hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend’s Run. Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.

I absolutely loved this book! Once I started it, I could not put it down! I could barely sleep without thinking of this book. So addictive!
