Book Review: Attachments

You know those authors that never disappoint? Well, Rainbow Rowell is one of those authors for me. Her stories are always imaginative yet intimate at the same time and when I finish each novel I always want to cry. Why? Her characters feel so real that finishing a book feels like saying goodbye to an old friend. Basically reading a Rainbow Rowell book is like choosing to get on an emotional roller coaster for me. But, I LOVE IT. I…

Tired of wondering whodunnit? No worries! My Lovely Wife lets you know who did it right from the top.

DUN DUN DDDUUUUUUUNNNNNN! That’s right ladies and gentleman- but wait, there’s more. While our protagonist may think he knows everything, he certainly doesn’t. My Lovely Wife will…

Fangirl- Book Review

For years I’d heard how great this book was, but I didn’t want to believe the hype. Every time I would pick it up, I’d think: “The last thing I wanna read about is a girl oblivious about some guy because she’s writing fan fiction”. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO WRONG. Some books just can’t live up to the hype surrounding them. They’re so talked up that you raise your expectations for them and ultimately get disappointed. It’s like thinking…

The Family Upstairs: Review

Ok, lets talk mysteries AKA my favorite subject. I grew up fascinated by mysteries. Honestly, who didn’t? At the innocent age of six, I would BEG my mom to let me watch CSI. I was convinced I was going to grow up to solve all of the worlds mysteries from the Zodiac to Area 51. Obviously, I didn’t and probably won’t. Especially since I can barely remember what I did last weekend, let alone pick apart the evidence of crime…

Call Me By Your Name: Review

WARNING: If you have a heart,you’ll sob your eyes out reading this book. I’m honestly surprised my copy of this book isn’t drenched and warped from all the tears I cried reading it. Every once in a while a story comes along that just makes me lose it. In middle school, I cried so much while reading Gatsby that my mom said “You have to stop crying- the people at school are going to think we’ve abused you!” I had…

Again, But Better: Review

You know that moment when you’re walking around a bookstore and your arms are full but you just don’t wanna go yet? Well, that’s how I found this book. I was strolling the shelves for probably the twelfth time when I spotted it. I picked it up and the sleeve said it was written by an influencer- I was instantly skeptical. If there’s one thing I can’t stand when reading- it’s terrible writing. Good writing makes you feel like you’re…

Carry On & Wayward Son : Review of Rainbow Rowell’s Fab Series

DISCLAIMER: Reading Rainbow Rowell’s Simon Snow series may cause emotional attachments to fictional characters. Now that that’s outta the way, lets dive in. Let me start off by saying my first impression of Carry On and Wayward Son were that these were probably just going to be a quirky rip off of Harry Potter. I was SO WRONG. These books are about so much more than magical powers, wands, and defeating an enemy. The Simon Snow series is about acceptance,…

The Girl He Used To Know: Review

You know how they say you can’t judge a book by its cover? Well, I do that all the time. I love to browse at the bookstore, see what pops out at me, and read what those covers hold inside. This book called my name for weeks and I IGNORED IT because I thought the cover was too pretty for it to be a good book. I was obviously wrong. After giving in and buying a copy I immediately went…
