Book Review: “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell

Hey guys!

It took a couple months, but I finally finished this book.

Overview from GoodReads:

Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life-and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone. For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Oh. Em. Gee. My heart. My aching heart. This happy ending was just…..I have no words. I just loved it! I just loved the whole thing! This book showed what really happens in college and that makes me really happy.

Until my next post,

ARC Review: “Going Down” by Lulu Pratt and Simone Sowood

Hey Guys!

I received an ARC from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

Overview from GoodReads:

Some people have a bucket list, I have a fuck-it list. When a brochure arrives at my mansion, the woman on the cover goes straight to the top. But she’s only interested in selling me stuff. That’s fine, I’m no stranger to the chase and I always capture my prey. After one taste, my list goes out the window. She’s all I can think about. Until I find out she’s secretly working for my asshole brother. My brother thinks he can use her to take me down? As if. The only way I’m going down… is on her.

This was a very fascinating book. I’ve read work from Lulu Pratt and Simone Sowood before, so I knew there were going to be sex scenes. The amount of sex scenes were just right and I enjoyed every single ounce of this book.

ARC Review: “Carnal” by Simone Sowood

Hi guys!

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Overview from GoodReads:

I don’t know what made me go to him that night. Steel, the pierced drifter with the neck tattoo. Mostly I wanted to hurt my reputation. He could take my virginity and I’d go home, ruined. I never thought he’d say no.


I had read “Carny,” and enjoyed it, so when Simone Sowood sent out an email stating she was re-releasing it with a different title and semi-different content, I was excited. This book was a great read and I really enjoyed reading it.

ARC Review: “Making His Baby” by Lulu Pratt

Hi guys!

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review!

Overview from GoodReads:

We’re making this baby the old-fashioned way. With my billions, I’ll pay whatever it takes for her to have my child. And I’m going to have fun putting it in her. After the baby’s born, she can go back to her regular life. But the way she screams my name in bed makes me want more. For the first time in years I want an actual relationship. Until I realize there’s something she’s not telling me. A secret from the past. And her plan to ruin everything.

I liked this book. There weren’t as many sex scenes as I thought there was going to be, but that is a good thing as too many sex scenes are just a chore to read. I did wind up having to skip past some sex scenes, but that is okay. It was a good book, overall.

Until my next post,

Book Review: “The Unexpected Everything” by Morgan Matson

Hey everybody!

I finished reading “The Unexpected Everything” by Morgan Matson.

Overview from GoodReads:

Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. Important internship? Check. Amazing friends? Check. Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks). But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life. Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?

This was definitely a book that I really enjoyed reading. It may have taken me a while to read, but it was definitely a book that was worthwhile.

Until my next post,

ARC Book Review: “Overlooked” by Simone Sowood and Lulu Pratt

Hey guys!

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Overview from GoodReads:

She’s the closest thing I ever had to a sister. Our parents are best friends and neighbors. We were raised together. But one look at her naked body in the window and I’m hard. How did I never notice her this way before? Too bad she’s forbidden fruit. She doesn’t deserve to be in my trail of one and done women. Plus it would ruin 25 years of friendship between our parents. But my body craves her. The longer she stands in the window, the less I’m able to resist. Screw it. Before I leave, I’ll give her a few good nights to she’ll never forget.

I could not put this down once I started reading it – it is definitely a recommended book to read. The suspense!
Not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

Until my next post,

Hey guys!

So, I finally finished the Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead. I am so upset that it is over, but all good things must come to an end.

This book was just so amazing! I almost cried at the ending. This was just a wonderful ending to a wonderful series.
