Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer | Review

Nowhere But Home has been on my radar since I saw Lauren rave about it on her blog. Since we’re basically twinning 99% of the time, I was sure that if she loved it, I would love it too. I was looking for some guaranteed good reads to kick off 2017 while I was in Hawaii, so I happily downloaded this on my brand new Kindle and dove in while lounging on the beach. I finished this book in less than 24 hours because it does NOT disappoint. I was so, so engaged in all of the elements of the […]

Maybe in Another Life |My First Taylor Jenkins Reid Experience

“I don’t believe that being in love absolves you of anything. I no longer believe that all’s fair in love and war. I’d go so far as to say your actions in love are not an exception to who you are. They are, in fact, the very definition of who you are.” I’d been wanting to pick up Taylor Jenkins Reid book for a really, really long time when I saw that Maybe in Another Life was available through my library’s Overdrive account. It wasn’t the novel of hers that was highest on my TBR list or the one that […]


Proposal (Mediator #6.5) & Remembrance (Mediator #7) by Meg Cabot | Review

Proposal (Mediator #6.5) & Remembrance (Mediator #7) by Meg Cabot | Review

After the success of Royal Wedding (the adult sequel to the YA Princess Diaries series) I have been beyond excited for the new Mediator books. I ordered this novella as a physical paperback (it’s tiny!) and it reminded me of the days I used to buy the Princess Diaries novellas at the bookstore, before e-readers were really a common thing. I had been seriously slumping since I finished Queen of Shadows, so switching up genres to paranormal and revisiting some of my favorite characters from the past (not to mention one of my first book boyfriends) seemed like the perfect […]

I’m Starting to Feel My Age: Top 5 Adult Fiction Books on My TBR

Lately I’ve been going through a phase where I find myself semi-tired of my beloved YA. Titles that I thought I would CERTAINLY be on the edge of my seat reading have ended up being a chore to read (I’m looking at you, Winter). Perhaps because I’ve recently been thrust into adulthood in my real life, I find myself craving characters with more mature relationships, life challenges, and goals. While I don’t see myself ever turning away from YA or even demoting it from my number one preferred genre of books, I think incorporating more adult fiction into my TBR […]

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan | Review

“A wave of intense happiness washed over me, and I told myself to carry this moment as a talisman of a time in my life when I was both truly content and lucky enough to realize it.” Do you like reading about royalty? Do you like witty, edgy, sometimes bordering on scandalous humor? Are you completely and unapologetically fascinated by the idea of a commoner and a monarch, an average person and a celebrity? If so, The Royal We is the perfect transcontinental novel for you, and you should be ordering it ASAP whether it’s delivered to you by USPS […]

Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot | ARC Review

*Many thanks to HarperCollins for this review copy! This was one of my most anticipated books of 2015. There were literally squeals of happiness when I found out I was getting more of Mia’s story. And it did not disappoint. I was thrilled to have gotten an ARC of this at YALLWEST considering I was in the middle of an entire series re-read in preparation for the new installment. I was over the moon and rushed home and binge read the last few installments so I could get to this one. I had 100% faith in Meg Cabot that she’d […]

The Princess Diaries Reread & The Start of My YA Love Affair: Books 1-3

If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while, you’ve probably heard me mention my love for Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries series. When I found out that she was publishing a continuation, adult novel in the series, I knew it was time for me to revisit the series- and I do mean the whole series. I own all of the novels, all but one of the novellas (before e-books, when they used to be published in tiny little paperbacks) and all of the companion how-to guides. I even recently started re-buying the novels in the newer paperback covers because my […]

Landline by Rainbow Rowell- Review

Landline by Rainbow Rowell My rating: 4/5 Stars Publisher: St. Martin’s Press (2014) Length: 310 pgs Genre: Adult Conemporary Fiction Format: Hardcover, checked out from my local library Goodreads Synopsis: Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now. Maybe that was always beside the point.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn Review- The Book That I Was Not Expecting

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn My rating: 3.5/5 Stars Publisher: Crown (2012) Length: 419 pgs Genre: Adult Fiction/Mystery/Thriller Format: Hardcover, checked out from my local library Goodreads Synopsis: On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have […]

Top Ten Authors I’ve (Sadly) Only Read One Book From…And Want to Read More From!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was “Top Ten Authors You’ve Only Read One Book From, But Want To Read More From.” The list is in no particular order! I’ve also listed the next book I plan on reading from the author! 1) John Green- I’m waiting to be more impressed by one of his works after TFIOS. Next Read: Paper Towns 2) Abigail Haas- Dangerous Girls gave me the biggest book hangover of 2014, and I’m excited for Haas’ work to astound (and slightly terrify) […]
