Review: The Devil You Know by Trish Doller

Review: The Devil You Know by Trish Doller

Before reading The Devil You Know, I read a few reviews that stated that the plot of this book was a lot like Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick, a book that received a rare one star rating from me.  This was a big red flag, because Black Ice was ridiculous and nonsensical and just plain awful. But this is Trish Doller!  The woman who wrote the wonderful Where the Stars Still Shine.  Surely this book had to be better than Black Ice,… Read more »

Review: The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

The Royal We might not be the Prince William/Kate Middleton fan fiction we wanted, but it’s the Prince William/Kate Middleton fan fiction we got.  Let’s be honest.  William and Kate aren’t the most exciting couple in the world.  They’re very attractive, they’re very well-mannered and composed, they’re probably wonderful parents, and while that’s great for real life, it doesn’t make for a juicy novel.  This lack of juiciness is especially surprising since this book was written by the bloggers from Go… Read more »

Review: Unleashed by Sophie Jordan

Review: Unleashed by Sophie Jordan

Shortly before I started reading Unleashed, the second book in Sophie Jordan’s duology, I read a review on Goodreads in which the reviewer wrote that while she enjoyed this book, she missed the absence of the romance from the first book. Well, that sounded great to me, because I thought the romance between Davy and Sean was the weakest part of the story.  In my review of Uninvited, I wrote this about the romance: “The worst part of this was… Read more »

Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Confess!  For those of you who have read this book, did you skip ahead to learn the identity of Blue?  I was SO tempted to do this, but I refrained, and I’m glad.  If you have not yet read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, (Come on!  Read it!), Blue is the pseudonym of the mystery boy our MC, Simon, has been emailing.  All Simon knows is that Blue is his high school classmate, and he has good grammar.  (As… Read more »
