Mind Games by Shana Silver

This was such an amazing book! Read at your own caution for potential spoilers! Mind Games is a sci-fi book where the main character sells memories. I love the idea that our memories are backed up to a cloud system where we can access them at anytime. Rather than saving photos, you can save full memories instead. To me, this isn’t outside of the realm of possibility, as is the danger that can come with it. If you make the wrong person mad, and they know how to hack, say goodbye to your memories. This creates a huge ethical issue, … Continue reading Mind Games by Shana Silver

Desperate Forest by Cece Louise

Please note, I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that there are spoilers ahead in this review. When I first started the book, honestly I wasn’t super thrilled. A king was murdered, the uncle wants to now kill the princess in order to have control over the kingdom, and the Princess has run away. Okay, decently common theme throughout young adult fantasy books. I’m very glad that I kept reading though. Roselynn was a fantastic protagonist. She is a great combination of innocence and determination and loyalty to save her people … Continue reading Desperate Forest by Cece Louise

Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

Please note, I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. And there are spoilers ahead! Okay….now to the review. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I’ve definitely read books in Instant message/chat format before… TTYL by Lauren Myracle for example. So when I started this book and it was in text message format, I wasn’t really phased. However, I love that Hemmingway also add it in excerpts from journal entries as well as regular letters also. It was a great way to provide background information around the story without breaking the format of the way it was … Continue reading Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

Me Myself & Him by Chris Tebbetts

I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you net galley! Truth be told, I did not like this book. I had a very hard time getting into it and I struggled to find the motivation to continue reading. The way the book was set up simply made me very not interested in it. I did not like that each chapter essentially had two chapters in it, one version for each of the two storylines that was being told. I think the premise behind the book is great, and I love the idea … Continue reading Me Myself & Him by Chris Tebbetts

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

Another fun and cute read from Emma Mills! I love the character of Claudia. She is the perfect blend of true friend/defender/introvert. While she is skeptical of people, and skeptical of them liking her, she is a true defender of her friends. Once she befriends someone, she is loyal. I wasn’t thrilled with the storyline between her and Gideon. I loved them as friends, and loved that they ended up together, but I felt that the tension and minor drama between them was unnecessary. It felt similar to most YA romcoms. Predictable but relatable at the same time. I did … Continue reading Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

This was a very cute book. It was light, quick, fun, and easy to read. It is a great book to read when you are stressed and you want something to distract you. While most of the story was predictable, the author did manage to have some surprises within the story also. I enjoyed watching Sloane learn what friendship truly is and learn more about herself. Her immediate dedication to her friends was a great recurring theme throughout the book. I would have liked the story to continue and delve further into her relationships as well as the relationships between … Continue reading This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

Two Like Me and You by Chad Alan Gibbs

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. From the first sentence, I was drawn into this book. Right away I knew that it would be humorous and entertaining. Edwin was a fantastic main character. I loved the way that the author showed Edwin’s progression throughout the book and it showed how Edwin grew to better understand himself and the situations that he was a part of. I loved the way that the author used Parker and Garland to teach Edwin who he truly was, without letting him know that they were doing so. … Continue reading Two Like Me and You by Chad Alan Gibbs

Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popovic

Amazing!!! I will admit, I chose this book because I thought the cover looked really cool. And I am so so glad that I did. This book was absolutely incredible. The author weaved you into her story seamlessly and you could imagine every second of it within your own mind. I easily found myself cheering along with the two twins as they figured out what happened to their mother, and the truth about themselves and their family. When Luka and Iris finally got together, I had a huge smile on my face. Wicked Like a Wildfire was a great combination … Continue reading Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popovic

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

I originally read The Maze Runner a few years ago and really enjoyed it. This time around, I decided to try it as an audiobook which I definitely enjoyed! While I vaguely remembered what happened in the book, it was more of vague feelings rather than real recollections. While listening to the book, I found myself remembering events as they happened, but I was happy to find that I could not remember what happened next beyond a few exceptions. I enjoyed hearing it again as if it was almost new. The characters are easily relatable and I found myself very … Continue reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner
