Alright, 2017, we need to have a talk. You are turning me into the Oprah of 5-Star book reviews. Four 5-Star reviews in less than three months is too many. I’m not sure if this year is just a magical book year, or if January and February are great months and I’m bound to be disappointed for the remaining 10 months of...

I received an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. In today’s day and age, nobody meets organically anymore. I feel like meet-cutes are no longer a thing.

I was given an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. As those of you who follow my reviews know, I generally start with some sort of anecdote or comparison that explains how the book made me feel. I’ll be honest, this book has stunned me speechless. I have no anecdote to share because...

Review As is the case with most women my age, I’ve suffered my fair share of heartbreak. The kind that has you curling up in bed and sobbing, while eating any kind of chocolate you can get your hands on. No offense to my ex-boyfriends, but not a single one of them has broken my heart as much as Marissa Meyer’s...
