Bad Girls With Perfect Faces Spoiler Mini Review

Image
Title: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces
Author: Lynn Weingarten
Pages: 320
Publication Year: 2017
Genre: YA Mystery/Thriller
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis: When Sasha’s best friend Xavier gets back together with his cheating ex, Ivy, Sasha knows she needs to protect him. So she poses as a guy online to lure Ivy away.

But Sasha’s plan goes sickeningly wrong. And she soon learns to be careful of who you pretend to be because you might be surprised by who you become…






I really enjoyed this. I like the authors writing and the two/three perspectives that we get to read from.

My biggest problem with it was that it was so reminiscent of her other novel Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls. 

I hated Xaviers relationship with Ivy and how quickly he got back together with her. Ivy was such an awful person and it was weird seeing Xavier being so into her when he's described as such a sweet and kind person.

The twist ending wasn't as surprising as I was hoping.

Overall it was a quick and enjoyable read. 


Down The TBR Hole #1

Image
Hey everyone, today I'm going to be doing Down The TBR Hole. It was created by Lia (I tried going to her blog but it wasn't working) to decrease the amount of books on your Goodreads TBR. As of making this post I have 238 books on my Want To Read Shelf on Goodreads.

Here's how the tag works: ​ Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.Order on ascending date added.Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.Read the synopses of the booksDecide: keep it or should it go? ​

1. Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf- This sounds like the kind of books that I used to be super interested in but after reading similar ones I've come to realize it's not my kind of book. 
Verdict: Go
2. The First Lie by Sara Shepard- I loved the Lying Game series when I read it and I want to re read it but this novella seems unnecessary. 
Verdict: Go
3. Watercolor by Leigh Talbert Moore- …

The Dating Game Series Review *Spoilers*

Series: The Dating Game
Author: Natalie Standiford
Genre: YA Contemporary
Pages: 204-218
Published in 2005 and 2006
Series Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Goodreads Synopsis: When three high school sophomores set up a weblog as a class project to research whether girls or boys are more sex-crazed--and to play matchmaker, their own messy love lives become even more complicated.








I read the first four books in the series a few years ago and I've been wanting to finish the series for awhile now. I decided to re read it recently and I figured that I would review it.

The series honestly reads more younger YA to me. Almost middle grade tbh.

Each book is a little over 200 pages and really easy to fly through. Not a lot happens throughout the six book series but I still found it very enjoyable. Each chapter of the books follows one of the three main characters.

The characters are sophomores throughout the series and it really shows. They really seemed true to age. Mads is in love with a senior Sean even though he j…

Giving Up Series Discussion

Image
Hey everyone happy Saturday. Today I wanted to talk about something that I struggle with which is giving up series of books.

In the past few years I have started lots of series but have yet to finish many of them. If I give a book at least three stars I feel the need to continue on in the series. The problem with that is if I give a book three stars I don't end up picking up the sequel right away so it ends up sitting on my shelf for a long time. Even if I give a book five stars that doesn't guarantee that I'll read the sequel immediately.

As time passes I tend to forget too much about the previous book(s) in a series and I don't want to re read it/them in order to understand what's going on in the sequel. Therefor I have multiple series that I would like to finish that I honestly don't know if I'll end up finishing.



Last year I decided to give up on two series. Those series are The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting and the Pushing The Limits series by Katie …

The Sun Is Also A Star Review

Image
Title: The Sun Is Also A Star
Author: Nicola Yoon
Genre: YA Contemporary
Pages: 344
Publication Year: 2016
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis from Goodreads: Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?



I really loved this book. It is told in such an original way with chapters not only f…
