Dear Books . . . Signed, A Frustrated Reader -- A DNF Review

Dear The Queen Of The Tearling & Days Like This,

      As I'm composing this letter, I'm suddenly aware of how irritated I am. Actually scratch the word irritated, I am pissed the hell off at this point! I had very HIGH expectations for the both of you, and unfortunately I was let down . . . TREMENDOUSLY

Let's start with you Queen Of The Tearling. Do you even realize how boring you are? I mean come on, you truly expected me to trudge through 440+ pages of absolutely nothing? The chapters are sooooo freaking long, that I fell asleep 5 times trying to finish chapter 4! How in the hell does one fall asleep in the BEGINNING of a story huh? Top that with Kelsea a.k.a the " clueless " queen with the fact that there's NO ROMANCE and you have yourself an epic snore fest! Now don't get me wrong, romance isn't necessary in every book that I read, but when you write sentences like " He's so handsome ", " He made my cheeks flush, " and the kicker " My face grew hot when he touched me, " then guess what? Your misleading me, and there's nothing worse than a uhhh, a uh . . . whatever word you would use for a person who misleads people! (Can I get some help here google or nah?

I was going through a promising recovery from my reading funk, and here you come along kicking my ass right back down into the bottomless pit! So you know what? Take your ridiculously long chapters, naive main character who cares more about her appearance than her kingdom, and your boring-ness and shove it far up . . . somewhere!

Days Like This. I don't have much to say to you besides the fact that you should be FUCKING ASHAMED of yourself! Your main character Cassie was the biggest dickhead I've ever read about in my entire life! First of all she's 19 and she leaves home because (1) Her next door neighbor/boyfriend Graham proposed, and (2) her mother was bipolar and as Cassie claimed was " too much to handle. " I was utterly speechless as I was reading, and I got so tired of Cassie and her shit that I threw in the towel just before I made it to chapter 5. Her mom is suffering from a mental illness so she selfishly leaves? Cassie's boyfriend proposes, and because her dad left her mom when she was young, she's suffering from the, " I'm so afraid to be in love " syndrome? I call bullshit. Not to mention you tried wayyyy too hard to be " deep " but really it just all reminded me of the sound a heavy turd makes when it hits the water in the toilet . . . BLOOP, BLOOP, BLOOP, SHITTY!

This letter could go on for days if I continued to rant about you filthy scoundrels, so I'm going to cut my loses, throw up the deuces, and pray to the bookish gods that I don't ever have to come across bs like this again. 

I hope your spines break and your pages get waterlogged.

Signed, A very ANGRY and FRUSTRATED reader.

Sometimes the only thing standing between fear and hope is you.

Almost a year ago, nineteen-year-old Cassie Harlen had a lot to deal with. A stack of college acceptance letters waiting for answers, a proposal from the boy next door, and a mother whose most recent bipolar episode left Cassie hurt and confused. Tired of cleaning up the messes caused by her mother's disorder, of resenting her mother for not being there, and scared of being trapped by an inevitable future—which included marrying Graham Tucker—Cassie did the only thing she could think of to keep from ending up like her mother: she left.

Graham never knew why Cassie walked away. He woke up one morning and she was gone—along with the life that he’d created around her. After eleven months, Graham has a new plan for his future. One that doesn't involve Cassie Harlen.

When Cassie's mom nearly burns down her house, Cassie’s forced to return home. Back to a mother she’s tried to ignore and the guy she’s been unable to forget. Graham doesn't know how he's going to spend the whole summer living next door to the person who broke his heart without letting those old feelings push through to the surface.

Neither does Cassie.

The Wrong Side Of Right Review -- Make This Your Next Read

The Wrong Side Of Right | Jenn Marie Thorne
Release Date: March 17, 2015 | Dial
Genre(s): Young Adult, Contemporary
Pages: 400
Edition: Kindle
Source: Purchased | Amazon

Kate Quinn’s mom died last year, leaving Kate parentless and reeling. So when the unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Kate does have a father. He’s a powerful politician. And he’s running for U.S. President. Suddenly, Kate’s moving in with a family she never knew she had, joining a campaign in support of a man she hardly knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives. This is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, she must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option?

Set against a backdrop of politics, family, and first love, this is a story of personal responsibility, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.

I received a review copy courtesy of the author/publisher. This does not affect my opinion or views regarding the book whatsoever.

If you haven't noticed, it's been fairly quiet here at fANGIRLconfessions, and I promise you I have some good reasons. (1) I'm extremely over-whelmed. Sacred ARCS have taken over my every being and lord I just can't wait to have all of them out of the way. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love my advanced readers copies, HOWEVER when you have soooo many to read around the SAME TIME . . . well shit gets a bit hectic. (2) I'm behind, VERY, VERY behind. So this reason ties into number one as well. Because I'm overwhelmed with all the books I have to read, I find myself climbing a slippery slope, trying to reach the top of my reading pile. I'm slowly but surely getting there but come on, how fast can one person actually read ya know? (3) I'm not in a reading slump, but even worse . . . a FUNK. Yes my reading has been a little funky, which pretty much means, I've been reading some shitty books.

I was drowning guys, (and no I can't swim) so before my boat completely went under the deep end, thank the bookish gods The Wrong Side Of Right came to my rescue. Even though I want to rave about how much I loved this book, I thought it'd be best if I didn't tell you guys EVERYTHING, so I decided to compile a short list of my:

 TOP 5 REASONS Why You NEED To Read The Wrong Side Of Right.

(5) Realistic Characters.

The cast of characters in this story were incredible! They were so multi-dimensional, believable, REAL. I shared smiles and giggles with these characters, and yes I even shed a tear or two. Okay, so I got choked up and cried a LITTLE, it was a heart-warming experience for christ sakes!

(4) Fresh & Meaningful Plot.

TWSOR wasn't really what I was expecting, and I mean that in the best way possible. I thought the story was going to be cute and maybe a little fluffy, but noooooo I was given that and so much more! The concept was fresh, and like nothing I've ever read before which made my reading experience that much more exciting. You guys will also enjoy how the story is strongly based on friendships and family, mixed with a itsy-teeny bit of scandal, and you all know I love my scandalousness lol.

(3) A Fun, Insightful Look Into Politics.

Yep, you heard me. POLITICS. Now I don't know about any of you, but I'm definitely not a fan of this topic. Like AT ALL! You start talking politics to me, and I'd reply with knowledge of Chipotle bowls and pigs that really do fly. In other words, the conversation would go in one ear, and down somewhere to come out as a fart. * shrugs * I'm just saying! But to my astonishment, (yes I have to get fancy on yall) I was completely intrigued by this concept. Our main character is the daughter of a senator running for president of the United States, so this gave us a quite accurate and informative look on how a campaign is executed. Forcing smiles, shaking hands and kissing babies, all the way down to the heated debate and finally the election. I was teary-eyed at that point, but you'll have to read it to find out why!

(2) An Outstanding Female Lead.

Kate our main character, is one of those girls that your parents WANT you to be friends with. You know the, " Why don't you invite Kate over? She's such a respectful young girl. " Or the, " Hey mom & dad, can I go out with some friends? " " If Kate is going to be there, sure! We love her, she's such a smart girl! " Usually I don't do the whole, " goody-goody " thing, but my gracious there's no way I could've disliked her even if I tried. She was smart, quite brilliant actually, was an amazing friend, and I just loved how she stood up for what she truly believed in. If Kate was being nominated for " Best Example Of How Female Characters SHOULD Be In YA " she would definitely get my vote.

and last but certainly not least, my favorite thing about this book . . .


If there was ever a fictional boy that I could absolutely see myself with, it would be him. Andy Lawrence is not only the " love interest " in this story, but he's the current president's son which makes his and Kate's friendship a bit . . . forbidden. * hehehehehe * Ahh, there was NOTHING I didn't like about this adorable little man child. He was cute, well I pictured him to be, funny, sarcastic . . . he just had this aggressiveness to him that I absolutely LOVED. Andy was definitely the type that if he wanted it, he'll get it, and my goodness he can snatch me up right now! lmao. I also enjoyed how persistent he was with pursuing Kate, and the only downside that I had with the whole situation, was that I wanted more of him!

So there you have it guys, my list of why you should drop whatever the hell it is you're reading and pick this up. I honestly wasn't expecting to love this book as much as I did, but The Wrong Side Of Right definitely lifted my spirits, (because reading shitty books puts you in a shitty mood) and showed me why Contemporary will always be my favorite genre. 

A Girl Called Fearless ARC Review -- I Made Amends.

A Girl Called Fearless | Catherine Linka
Release Date: May 6, 2015 | St. Martin's Griffin
Pages: 368
Genre(s): Young Adult, Dystopian
Edition: ARC Paperback
Source: Publisher

Avie Reveare has the normal life of a privileged teen growing up in L.A., at least as normal as any girl's life is these days. After a synthetic hormone in beef killed fifty million American women ten years ago, only young girls, old women, men, and boys are left to pick up the pieces. The death threat is past, but fathers still fear for their daughters' safety, and the Paternalist Movement, begun to "protect" young women, is taking over the choices they make.
Like all her friends, Avie still mourns the loss of her mother, but she's also dreaming about college and love and what she'll make of her life. When her dad "contracts" her to marry a rich, older man to raise money to save his struggling company, her life suddenly narrows to two choices: Be trapped in a marriage with a controlling politician, or run. Her lifelong friend, student revolutionary Yates, urges her to run to freedom across the border to Canada. As their friendship turns to passion, the decision to leave becomes harder and harder. Running away is incredibly dangerous, and it's possible Avie will never see Yates again. But staying could mean death.

I received a review copy courtesy of the author/publisher. This does not affect my opinion or views regarding the book whatsoever.

See, the thing between Dystopian and I, is that we don't have the best friendship. We started off the best of friends actually, then Dysto (his real name, and yes he's a GUY) began acting a bit shady. He became distant, our once interesting conversations turned mediocre, boring, and predictable. Oh and let's not forget his " tape-recorder disorder " where everything he said or did, was so gosh darn repetitive. I was soooo sick of his half-assness, that I cut him off, and swore that I would never reach out to him again. 

Well, I miss my good friend Dysto, and I wanted to see if we could actually work out, ya know? Give it one LAST shot to be the friends we were truly meant to be. So when I received an email offering to kick off our " amendment " with A Girl Called Fearless, I couldn't help but to accept.

Do you think we're friends now? Or did I flush his ass down the toilet?

To be honest, A Girl Called Fearless wasn't the best book to ignite the friendship flame between Dysto and I. It's not a horrible story, but it wasn't the greatest either, and if I were to give an example of my experience, the word " flat-line " would be the perfect representation. The problem is, this book suffered severely from the " dope concept -- poor execution " syndrome. Of course with EVERY dystopian, the concept, plot or however you want to phrase it, is always based on the same factor: A Controlling Government. What saved this novel, was the semi cool way the author (Linka) chose to deliver it.

10 years before the story begins, 50 million women were killed. The cause: Scarponal, a hormone that was injected into American beef. Slowing but surely, the hormone twisted itself into women's estrogen causing Ovarian Cancer that eventually killed mothers, wives, and sisters. Long story short, if you were a young girl that went through puberty, or an older woman that didn't have an hysterectomy, you were affected.

Now fast forward to the present day. A government called The Paternalist Movement has taken over to " ensure the safety of women. " Since girls aren't allowed to drive, they're escorted everywhere by body guards. No mothers are alive to teach their daughters the basics of motherhood and domestic living, so their school curriculum has changed. The basic subjects of math and science are now replaced by cooking and sewing. College is a thing of the past as the PM put in a motion for girls to have " contracts, " which in a less fancy word means " re-arranged marriages. " They're basically sold to the highest bidder, usually to some old buzzard which is pretty damn gross. And let's not forget the weird rule that girls aren't allowed to associate themselves with boys. No talking, no touching, no contact, no NOTHING. Sprinkle the aspect of revolution ontop, and you've got yourself the ultimate dystopian right? Not exactly.

When I think about it, the concept definitely kept me from DNF'ing, but there were just too many things that didn't work for me. First of all, our main character Avie was nothing but a selfish brat. I had such a hard time connecting with her, shit with ANY of the characters while we're on the subject. Avie was given the nickname " Fearless " by her male bestfriend Yates, and I swear I couldn't see why. She was pushed to do most of her actions, and she literally didn't want to take matters into her own hands until THE LAST DAMN PAGE. The title and the way the story was set up, fooled me into thinking I was getting a kickass clone of Katniss Everdeen but no ma'm, this child was nothing but Kat-Nip!

I was irritated even further when my enemy insta-love showed up, and formed this completely pathetic relationship between the " besties. " Top all of this with the fact that NOTHING WAS EXPLAINED! Why can't the girls mingle with boys? Why does all these young girls have to be married to all these old baffoons? Other than keeping these girls from having rights, what purpose does the " contracts " serve? I had so many questions, screw waiting for the sequel, I want to know now!

 A Girl Called Fearless wasn't completely a horrible read, but it was pretty disappointing. It had the bones to be pretty damn great, but with no clear direction, (trust me this concept goes from arranged marriages, to a secret underground hideout that served as a escort service, to farmers, a potential love-triangle, to politics, revolutions and some more ish) that the book just sort of bounced around.

You won't be totally blown away by A Girl Called Fearless, and as I mentioned earlier, the concept is what made this book. But if you're looking for a quick " filler " to read in between other titles, something stuffed with an incredibly intriguing plot that would definitely hold you over,
then maybe this one is for you.

Waiting On Wednesday -- * GRABBY HANDS *

" Waiting on Wednesday " is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I haven't participated in quite some time, and I'm soooo excited for this upcoming release!

The following book I'm showcasing today is one that completely flew under my radar. I've seen soooo many people talking, tweeting, blogging, instagramming, (is that even a word? If not I just made it one lol) about it, but I never for some dumb ass reason went to goodreads to look it up, or bothered to see what it was about. It wasn't until  BEA, and the fact that I kept seeing everyone LOSE THEIR SHIT over this book, that I finally thought to myself, " YO, WTF IS THIS AND WHY IS EVERYONE GOING BATSHIT CRAZY FOR IT ?? " So I hopped, skipped, and jumped my clueless behind to goodreads to do some investigating, and lord after I read that synopsis I was like:

Do you see EVERYONE'S reaction in this GIF? Those were all my emotions, especially the lady in the red suit jacket lol.


For those of you who are just as clueless as I was, here's a mini break down of the story

 It's Set In 2575, like HELLO totally futuristic. (Ew I just Said Totally)

 There's a rocky relationship apparently. Hence the breakup thing.

 There's a war. * Rubs Hands *

The planet gets invaded. Aliens? Demons? Robots like Transformers???

 There's a plague that's mutating people. * Rubs Hands Again *



Sugar ARC Review -- Bullying On A Whole Nother Level

I’m the fat Puerto Rican–Polish girl who doesn’t feel like she belongs in her skin, or anywhere else for that matter. I’ve always been too much and yet not enough.

Sugar Legowski-Gracia wasn’t always fat, but fat is what she is now at age seventeen. Not as fat as her mama, who is so big she hasn’t gotten out of bed in months. Not as heavy as her brother, Skunk, who has more meanness in him than fat, which is saying something. But she’s large enough to be the object of ridicule wherever she is: at the grocery store, walking down the street, at school. Sugar’s life is dictated by taking care of Mama in their run-down home—cooking, shopping, and, well, eating. A lot of eating, which Sugar hates as much as she loves.

When Sugar meets Even (not Evan—his nearly illiterate father misspelled his name on the birth certificate), she has the new experience of someone seeing her and not her body. As their unlikely friendship builds, Sugar allows herself to think about the future for the first time, a future not weighed down by her body or her mother.

Soon Sugar will have to decide whether to become the girl that Even helps her see within herself or to sink into the darkness of the skin-deep role her family and her life have created for her.

I received a review copy courtesy of the author/publisher. This does not affect my opinion or views regarding the book whatsoever.

My mama always told me that someone's life will always be harder than mine. Of course I knew this was true, and have even witnessed it during my years of growing up and even now, but this book really opened my eyes to just how difficult -- no unbearable, one's life could actually be.

Before starting Sugar, I just knew I had a clear idea of what this story would be centered around. A girl struggling with her weight, meets a cute guy and together they embark on a journey of getting her healthy. While my guess wasn't too far off from hitting the nail on the head, the fraction that I missed, turned out to be more disturbing, foul, and just all around F**KED up, than I could ever have imagined. 

Can you imagine a life full of constant ridicule? A life where you're not only surrounded, but drowning in negativity? I couldn't, and witnessing Sugar become the butt of every joke, the topic of every mocking conversation, was a tough pill to swallow. Not only was she bullied by children at school and in town, but she suffered emotional and physical abuse at home as well, done by her overweight brother, and mother, who is bed-ridden and suffering from diabesity.

 He takes a swig from the can of Pabst that Uncle Bruce brought over and then spits it in my face. Beer mixed with bits of potatoes covers me from head to chest. " How'd you like that? " He asks. He squirts the turkey baster at me and liquid drips down my arm.

 " Bring it here. What Kind? " She asks. " Chocolate with vanilla icing. Your favorite. " I bring it over to her and pull out the paper plate and fork I have on the bottom. As I'm doing so, she stubs her cigarette out in the middle of the frosting. " Mama! " She glares at me then, before I realize what's happening, she takes the back of my head and pushes my face down into the icing. I struggle to get out from beneath her grasp, but she has me by the hair. I twist my head to the side and shout as I wriggle away. " Little Bitch. " She says.

To say her mother and brother were horrible people would be an understatement. I wanted to grab and shake Shoog by her shoulders while yelling " DO SOMETHING! STAND UP FOR YOURSELF ! " But how could she? " Thou Shalt Honor Thy Mother And Thy Father, " and that's exactly what she was doing. Her brother constantly attacked her, throwing knives, kicking her in the face, and she couldn't escape the emotional abuse from her mother either. Just when I thought this story would be nothing but a cloud of depression, in steps Even to brighten the day.

Even Anderson was a breath of fresh air. He was polite, well-mannered, caring, considerate, and ended up being Sugar's only friend. I loved how Even helped to bring out the confidence in Shoog, (the nickname he gave her) and how he eventually became a stepping stone on her path of getting healthy. He didn't care what others thought, and was able to be a true friend because he understood abuse as well. Their friendship was genuine, and I'm grateful that someone was able to the uplifting factor in her once dreadful life.

Sugar is beyond a promising read. It will connect with readers who struggle with the same issues, and give others the insight on what it means to be bullied by peers and family. It was an eye-opening experience for myself, pulling at every emotion I could think of.

You'll be angry, you'll smile at the cuteness that is Even, you'll want to cry, and you'll be so infuriated with this story, that you'd want to toss it across the room. But isn't that what stories are supposed to do? Aren't we supposed to not only witness, but FEEL what the characters are going through? This may not be the best book I've ever read, but it's one that's unforgettable,  one that will definitely stick with me for the long run.

Delia Moss isn’t quite sure where she went wrong.

When she proposed and discovered her boyfriend was sleeping with someone else – she thought it was her fault.

When she realised life would never be the same again – she thought it was her fault.

And when he wanted her back life nothing had changed – Delia started to wonder if perhaps she was not to blame…

From Newcastle to London and back again, with dodgy jobs, eccentric bosses and annoyingly handsome journalists thrown in, Delia must find out where her old self went – and if she can ever get her back.

I received a review copy courtesy of the author/publisher and TLC Book Tours. This does not affect my opinion or views regarding the book whatsoever.

I remember when I first received this book in the mail. I pulled it out of the package, and marveled at how cool the cover looked. (not the same edition shown in this review) I ran my fingers along it's smooth surface, I even grabbed it by it's spine, and with the same wrist motion like I was fanning myself, I watched the pages flop back in forth -- because what book lover doesn't love a floppy paperback? As I'm standing in the middle of my living room, watching and listening as the book makes a flump, flump, flump sound, (okay that's not exactly what it sounded like. Shut up and bare with me!) I then noticed with a sudden dread . . .

This book was damn near 600 pages.

I needed atleast a good 3 or 4 days to take this massive baby down, but with falling behind in blogging, and trying to play " tag you're not it anymore " with all of my ARCS, I feared that (1) This book would drag. (2) I'd end up hating it, and that always results in a DNF. (3) Because of the length and the amount I had to read, I'd be late posting my review for the tour. 

Number one and two were easily cancelled out, but number three and I are headed to the battle field, and I shall be the victor!

Plot -- Oh How I Love A Good Scandal.

After taking down chapter one and moving on to the second, I just KNEW I was going to enjoy It's Not Me It's You. Not even 30 pages in, we witness our main character Delia Moss, go through what I call an " unnatural mid-life crisis. " She proposes to her boyfriend Paul on their 10 year anniversary, (very courageous of her might I add) and although he said yes, you can sense a little apprehension in his vibe.
Paul is a bartender, so to celebrate their to-be-union, they decide to have a drink at one of his favorite spots. 

Now here is where shit hits the fan. 

C. Something's happened with D and I don't want you to hear it from anyone else. She's proposed. Don't know what to do. Meet tomorrow? P Xx

The text message quoted above, was from Paul who meant to send it to his side chick, a 24 year old student named Celine. (He's 34 btw) Because he's a dickhead, he accidentally sends it to Delia, who might I add, is still sitting with him at the bar. 1+1 will always equal 2 folks, so it didn't take a rocket scientist to discover that Paul is indeed cheating on our main character, and has been for quite some time. He's such an arsehole right? (I've been brushing up on my British, hehehe)

What I loved is that Delia didn't do anything DRAMATIC. She moved in with her parents until she sorted things out. She didn't quit her job (although she does leave for a different reason) and she didn't do anything like bleach her hair, or cut it off and purchase a new wardrobe in hopes to " reinvent " herself. Nope, she picked up the pieces, and after the offer from her bestfriend Emma, she moves to London for a fresh start, and a new change of scenery, and boy does she get it.

Characters -- One Word: Eclectic.

Besides the concept, the characters were my absolute favorite aspect of this story! They were wild, eccentric, nerdy, and just all around enjoyable. First of all, I connected with Delia on soo many levels. She worked in the PR/Comm field, but went to university to study Graphic Art. In her teenage years all the way through Uni, she wrote and drew a comic series called " The Fox " which served as her alter ego. This female superhero lived underground, rode a magic bicycle, and fought urban crime. How cool is that? As you can tell from my blog, I also have a superhero alter ego. fANGIRL Warrior not only slays reviews, but she kicks literary ass, one book at a time. It's definitely clear that McFarlane wrote this book for me.

My next favorite of the bunch was Peshwari Naan, a.k.a Joe. At Delia's previous job before she moved to London, she was assigned the mission of tracking down this obnoxious hacker/internet troll who went by the name of Peshwari Naan. He was harassing workers from her company, (in a hilarious way) and her job was to get him to cut the shit. After Delia leaves her job and lands another in a different city, he manages to track her IP address like the cool nerd that he is, and they spark a pretty interesting friendship. It wasn't hard to see that Joe had a crush on Delia, but with his extreme crippling social anxiety, he feared that he would do nothing when he met D but shiver and stutter because of his condition. I wanted so bad for Delia and Joe to be a couple, I mean HELLO he's a hacker, he's also caring, funny, and just so freaking adorable. I actually think she's saving him for me.

From bat shit crazy bosses, cute-stealthy hackers, (yes I have a crush on Joe) to sexy-but-arrogant rival journalists, the characters in this story will keep you on your toes. Either that or giggling like a maniac.

Last Impressions -- Pretty Damn Entertaining.

To be honest, I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel. I was a bit nervous about the length, because let's keep it real, what contemporary book needs to be almost 600 pages long? Fantasy yes, contemp, hell no. Thank the bookish gods, because not only did the story NOT drag, but it was fast faced, down-right hilarious, and was the right amount of fun I needed to pick me up after a few disappointing reads. It's Not Me It's You, was a spunky story stuffed with an entertaining plot, amusing/crazy characters, that was lastly wrapped in a nerdy bow, so if you're in the mood to be tickled with laughter, and to have your spirits lifted, I HIGHLY recommend picking this up!

Andddd That's Ah Wrap! -- May Edition

I literally experienced the suckiest reading month I've had since I started blogging. Book hangovers, feeling lazy and slumpy, not liking a few of the books I read, May was a pretty " MEH " month for me.

7 Books Read.
2 AH-MAZING books + 1 I can't stop raving about x 1 disappointing read - 2 DNF's =  

Favorite Of The Month

I've been raving about this book ever since I finished it and I've assigned myself the personal mission to get everyone I know to pick it up. Seriously if you haven't read ACOTAR yet, please do. You won't be disappointed, and if you are well SCREW YOU OKAY!

The Reads I Absolutely Adored

(1) An African-American heroine.  (2) An interracial couple. (3) The dopest concepts I've ever read.

This book was SUCH a major let down for me. I had high expectations for this one, only to have them crushed by weird characters, and a boring story in general.

Hopefully June will be the month of NO DNF's, and better stories over-all.
