GRUMPY CAT” —A BOOK YOU HAVE NEGATIVE FEELINGS ABOUT.

The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines

Ugh, I have several reasons why I despised this book including the characters, the cheating, the slut shaming, the possessiveness. Definitely not a great reading experience  .

“WHAT IF I TOLD YOU” — A BOOK YOU SPOILED FOR YOURSELF.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

I was a bit late to the Hunger Games hype and so after I finished reading Catching Fire, I was kind of over it and looked up what happens on Wikipedia (despite the fact that I read it anyways).

“I DON’T ALWAYS MAN” — A BOOK YOU DON’T ALWAYS LIKE, BUT WHEN YOU’RE READING IT YOU DO.

The Ramona Quimbly Series by Beverly Cleary

Reading these as a kid, I absolutely adored these books. I believe I read them all. However, thinking about it now, these books were just okay and Ramona was kind of a brat.

But I still enjoy this series because it’s ridiculous and entertaining!

“90’S SPIDERMAN” — A GOOD CLASSIC OR RETRO BOOK THAT’LL NEVER GET OLD.

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

When I’m at home, I always go look at the passages and quotes I tabbed. I don’t know why but I really love this book and it’s one of my all time favorites. The themes of innocence and death colliding is haunting but compelling.

“MARCHING BAND MEMES” — A BOOK THAT’S VERY RELATABLE.

Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford

I was really at a dark time when reading this and I related to the main character a whole lot. Although it’s humorous, all what the character went through in the book is what I went through and still struggling with.

“DEMOTIVATIONAL” —A BOOK THAT YOU’VE SEEN ALMOST EVERYWHERE.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I mean, the book hasn’t even come out yet and it already has a 4.7 rating on Goodreads. This is everyone’s most anticipated book, including mine, and I can’t wait to read it!!!

“YOU DON’T SAY” —A PREDICTABLE BOOK.

The Perfect Chemistry Series by Simone Elkeles

An okay YA contemporary series I read years ago.

“ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY” — ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY BINGE READ THE ENTIRE BOOK. (A BOOK YOU BINGE READ.)

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Again, every tag I do, I mention my queen. I read Dark Places in one sitting and I love love LOVED it. It’s my favorite by her because I love stories about controversial cases. Libby was such an intriguing character and so were the side characters that we were introduced to. Highly Recommend!

“CHEMISTRY CAT”— A BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.

None of the Above by I.W Gregorio

I learned a lot about intersex from this book. It’s extremely educational and the author clearly put in a lot of research. Not the best story plot wise, but if you wanna learn what intersex actually is, I recommend None of the Above.

“PET MEMES” — A BOOK THAT’S JUST REALLY ADORABLE.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by  Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Image result for book pet meme

I just recently finished this book and I’m still thinking about how amazing Aristotle and Dante were. I just loved their relationship. I read this on audiobook and I’m pretty sure people gave me weird stares since I was smiling A LOT (listen to this on my way to classes)

Mini Reviews| The Bad, The Good, The Great

I don’t write a review for every book I read for a couple of reasons. Some of those reasons being that I don’t have the time, the book is too short to review, sequel to a series so I don’t want to spoil, read too long ago to even do a full review or perhaps I just don’t want to spend an ample amount of time constructing one. 

So, instead, I write 3-5 mini (emphasis on the mini) reviews for the books that didn’t make my “prestige” full book review list.

 

The Vincent Boys (The Vincent Boys, #1)The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines
Published: October 12th 2011
Page count: 260 pages
Rating:★

Ashton is getting tired of being good, of impressing her parents and playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it’s his cousin Beau who catches Ashton’s eye. Beau is the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, and even though he’s dangerous, Ashton is drawn to him.

Beau loves his cousin like a brother, so the last thing he wants to do is make a move on Sawyer’s girl. Ashton is off-limits, absolutely. That’s why he does his best to keep his distance, even though he’s been in love with her forever. When Ashton wants to rekindle their childhood friendship in Sawyer’s absence, Beau knows he should say no.

Ashton and Beau don’t want to hurt Sawyer. But the more they try to stay away from each other, the more intense their urges become. It’s getting way too hard to resist….

Review: The first sentence of the plot summary should have been a deal breaker but I was in the middle of my first semester of college, I was stressed, pimples kept getting plastered on my face and I just wanted to read something cheesy to relieve my stress. Somehow, this book made me more stressful. Both characters were shitty which I should have known from the get go since cheating is romanticized (which this could have been avoided by, well, I don’t know, BREAKING UP WITH HIM???)  Ash was dull and frustrating, Beau was trash and everyone else and the plot was irrelevant.

20821614YOU by Caroline Kepnes

Rating:★★★★

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

Review: I read this almost a year ago and I have to say, I still think about this book. No, it’s not spooky, it’s not too thrilling, but it’s no doubt extremely compelling. Being in Joe’s head, knowing his every move, knowing what he’s thinking always grabbed my attention. The second person narrative absolutely enhanced the overall experience of the story.

The Grownup

The Grown Up by Gillian Flynn
Published: November 3rd 2015 by Crown
Page count: 64 pages
Rating:★★★★★

A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the “psychic” visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan’s terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan’s teenage stepson, doesn’t help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it.

Review: Honestly, I rate 5 stars anything Flynn writes. Once again, Flynn left me in shocked by the end of the short story. Her characters are always complex yet beautiful and her writing definitely never lets me down. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something short yet engaging.

SERIES I DON’T PLAN ON FINISHING OR AM NOT READING IN THE NEAR FUTURE

Excuse the long title :).

Well, since it’s the new year, I thought I would do a bookshelf cleanse. I noticed that there are some books on my bookshelf that I have no interested in anymore and I thought I would share with you guys the series that I no longer have a desire to finish (at least in the near future). LET’S BEGIN!

 

Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

16034235

I actually liked the first two books in this series. However, I put off reading Heir of Fire so long, that I no longer cared about the world or the characters. Although I’ve been isolated from the book community for a while, I heard there’s some “controversy” around these books about diversity and also how her characters have become inconsistent. Although I can’t speak on those issues due to me not reading past Crown of Midnight, I would be lying to say that those problems helped me not wanting to continue the series.

 

 

 

 

The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

47212

I really wanted to get in this series. I was committed to doing so. I bought half the series from old book stores and read the first book. It was okay, but nothing worthwhile. One day I would like to tackle this series but I don’t think it will be anytime soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Vincent Boy Duology by Abbi Glines (maybe trilogy) b

12900174

I read the first book and nope bye denied.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dollanganger Series by V.C. Andrews

43448

I have a love/hate relationship with this series. I hated the incest, I hated a lot of the characters and I hated the crap the siblings in the book had to go through. The writing was weird since the world “Golly” was thrown around a lot and you can easily tell how old school this was. However, I still seemed to like this gross book series. However, the reason why I have no desire to finish it is because I already watched the entire Lifetime series. Also, I was almost done with the second book and I put it down for about 2 years and I have no desire to pick it back up whoops.

 

 

 

 

If you made it to the end, thank you so much!

What books/series are you abandoning?
