The 5th Wave [Rick Yancey]; Throwback Thursday

I was lucky enough almost two years ago to have happened across a box set of this series in a used book store and I always meant to read and review all three of the books, but I only managed to do so with the first two. I can't recall what had me drop the…

The Princess Diaries [Meg Cabot]; Throwback Thursday

I'm pretty sure that I will forever prefer the movies to the books whenever The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot comes up, but there is something to be said for the fact that these books are actually pretty good. As a young pre-teen, these are the sort of books you live for and with good reason.…

Hoot [Carl Hiaasen]; Throwback Thursday

I'm sure a great many of you have heard about the novel Hoot in the past. Likely many more people have seen the movie. It's a pretty fantastic book about consumerism, greedy business, and the need for people to care more about animals and the environment. I've always loved this book, from the very first time…

Roomies [Christina Lauren]; Throwback Thursday

I won Roomies by Christina Lauren in a Goodreads giveaway some time before I actually sat down and read it. The funny thing is that I was actually exceedingly surprised by how much I enjoyed the story. I tend to shy away from romance, especially any sort of novel that includes sex scenes in it. They…

Curio [Evangeline Denmark]; Throwback Thursday

Hello everyone and welcome to another throwback Thursday post! I've definitely mentioned Curio by Evangeline Denmark on multiple occasions over the years since I read it in 2017. It's just such a wonderful book that I have loved from the very first moment that I picked it up. I'm dying for a sequel, though I don't know…

A Whole New World [Liz Braswell]; Throwback Thursday

I recently got my hands on a copy of Part of Your World by Liz Braswell, an author who has spent quite a bit of time rewriting and working popular Disney film stories into what she calls "twisted tales." I've noticed, after having looked at and read several of the books she's written in this collection,…

Cinder [Marissa Meyer]; Throwback Thursday

Some time ago, I decided it would be an absolutely brilliant idea to return to my most beloved books in the universe--ones that I read at least twice each and every year--and rewrite the reviews I'd written for them all prior. And I couldn't really have made a better choice considering how abysmal my reviews…

Brooding YA Hero [Carrie DiRisio]; Throwback Thursday

For this Throwback Thursday I thought I'd feature an old review for a book that I found quite amusing way back when. I do think that the Twitter accomplishes the feeling you get with the typical brooding YA male protagonist--and usually love interest--but it was really cool to see how this book took the stereotypes…
