Hold on Tight by Abbi Glines

Hold on Tight by Abbi Glines

December 4, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I think I've anticipated Dewayne's story the most out of all the more minor characters in the Sea Breeze world. He's been hovering on the edges of everyone else's stories, making inappropriate comments but letting us glimpse a softer side of him.

Dewayne's abrasive and snarky nature is mostly a front: his younger brother died six years ago in a car accident and he's never really recovered. I liked Dewayne - he isn't as crazy and cave-man stupid as some of the other guys in this series. In addition to mourning his brother, Dewayne's also been missing his brother's...

Bad for You by Abbi Glines

Bad for You by Abbi Glines

November 3, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★½

This is Krit’s story!! I think, aside from Dewayne, I’ve been looking forward to Krit’s story the most. Krit’s a rock star – the lead singer of a band with the tattoos and hoards of women after him to go with that title. Blythe was taken in by a pastor…

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

October 10, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★

Getting to read a tie-in novel that tells us what happened to the Bennets when Lizzie wasn’t making the videos was amazing! I wish all tie-in novels were like this, because it doesn’t just re-tell the story of the videos, but shows us whole new sides to the characters and gives them more depth.

Out of Control is a heart-stopping adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter. It includes Alderson’s trademark action and amazing characters and takes on an issue rarely seen in YA fiction.

I enjoyed reading Misbehaving and am looking forward to continuing the series, but there’s no getting around the fact that these books are starting to feel very samey.

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

August 1, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Come Back to Me is my favourite kind of NA story. It’s about more than just a hot romance. It’s about family and friends and dreams and love in all its incarnations. I think it’s a beautiful story and have really enjoyed reading it!

Take Me On by Katie McGarry

Take Me On by Katie McGarry

July 28, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★

Take Me On felt very samey – it felt like Crash Into You with mixed martial arts instead of drag racing. In fact, it didn’t really even feel like Crash Into You because I believed where Crash Into You was coming from and I found this whole book utterly unbelievable.

Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

July 9, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

I’ve really enjoyed the latest offering by the awesome duo behind the pen name Christina Lauren, and recommend Sweet Filthy Boy to fans of Anna and the French Kiss looking for a slightly spicier romance.

On the Fence by Kasie West

On the Fence by Kasie West

July 7, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

This lovely author can do no wrong! On the Fence is a cute story about Charlie, a total tom-boy who has grown up with three brothers and her father, and her next door neighbour Braden, who’s always been like a fourth brother to her (but not for long!)
