The 5th Wave, by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave, by Rick Yancey Published: Penguin Random House, 2013 Rating: 100/100 Worth Your Time? I haven’t read a book this quickly, or cried this many times over a single book, since July 21, 2007. There’s a tiny mistake on p.97, but I could literally care less. There’s, like, one sometimes-annoying trope in the plot, but… Continue reading The 5th Wave, by Rick Yancey

Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl Published: Hachette Book Group, 2009 Rating: 80/100 Worth Your Time? You’ll get the gist if you skim it. I’d suggest speed-reading, or else it will take you 3+ weeks to get through, like it did for me. It’s very long; like, 600 pages. Fangirl Moments “I was sixteen years… Continue reading Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Miss Peregrine’s, by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs Published: Quirk Books, 2011 Rating: 70/100 Worth Your Time? Maybe. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I think it’s likely that the movie would be enough on its own.   Fangirl Moments “‘Of course not,’ I said, my gaze skirting the framed degrees on his wall, all… Continue reading Miss Peregrine’s, by Ransom Riggs

Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

Made You Up, Francesca Zappia. Published: HarperCollins, 2015 Rating: 90/100 Worth Your Time? ABSOLUTELY. Thoughts on the Jacket Summary So, the summary on the physical jacket of this book is not actually a summary–it’s an “excerpt,” and then there is a two-sentence description on the back cover. “Excerpt” is in quotes because the dialogue on the jacket,… Continue reading Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

OCD Love Story, by Corey Ann Haydu

OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu Published: Simon & Schuster, 2013 Rating: 95/100 Worth Your Time? YES. It smashes the stereotypes of OCD, and it reads like John Green. Read it. Thoughts on the Jacket Summary First of all, I need to comment on the cover. It’s beautiful, it expresses Bea’s character, and it makes me… Continue reading OCD Love Story, by Corey Ann Haydu
