Review: Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny

Review: Love me a good word nerd. ūüôā Plus, word nerds give good banter, so they’re always great as a main character! I definitely didn’t expect to see Lindsay falling for a hockey player after her grudge in Whitney’s book. But now that I think about it, I totally should’ve seen it coming. ūüėČ Also, you know how I loved that Anatomy of a Player reminded me of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? Well, there’s a paintball scene in this one, which reminded me of 10 Things I Hate About You, and I loved that too. Now […]

Review: The Goal by Elle Kennedy

Review: What a way to end this series! It was definitely my favorite book out of them all. First of all, I don’t know how often I read books in a series where it takes place alongside another one of the books, chronologically. Having this one occur at the same time as The Score¬†was really cool, having those little¬†“I know something you don’t know” moments where you knew more than either of the narrators. This book was also so emotional, even more than the tough stuff in The Score. I could relate to Sabrina’s work ethic and determination, and the […]

Review: The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn

Review: I don’t know why, but for some reason I thought this would be a cute, kinda innocent but still great read. I really don’t know why, considering I’ve read and loved a Meghan Quinn book before. Something about the cover, I guess? (Guuuuys, it’s so prettyyyy) That past experience is why I was willing to give an innocent-looking new adult book a chance in the first place. But I started reading to find the same naughty, raunchy, fucking hilaaarious humor as in The Virgin Romance Novelist. Nope, not innocent humor at all. Not innocent romance at all. Yassss. I […]

Review: Anatomy of a Player by Cindi Madsen

Review: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! It was How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! In a good way – the best way. Except there was no drunken “You’re So Vain.” A disappointment, but I can overlook it because reading drunk karaoke isn’t as fun as listening to and watching it anyway, not by a long shot. Plus, Matthew McConaughey never held much appeal for me, and Hudson does. The book was so cute, and I absolutely loved the “reporter girl” banter between Hudson and Whitney. And man, Whitney kind of sucked as a reporter. It […]

Review: The Score by Elle Kennedy

Review: Once again, I really, really, really need to thank Cora Carmack and her Facebook groups for making me feel FOMO about this series. Best peer pressuring, ever. My life motto is pretty much anything the Gilmore Girls have ever said, and they’ve said a lot about the joys of talking fast and not being serious. They¬†showed even more benefits to fast-talking banter and witty repartee. So my life motto is pretty much “Live Gilmore.” And the characters in the Off-Campus series, even the guys, live like Gilmores. This style of writing and dialogue is what I love, because it’s […]

Review: More Than Comics by Elizabeth Briggs

Review: This was one of those books that I found still available on NetGalley months after its release, so it was a nice book I could take my time through and pick up between books with tight deadlines. I felt like I really took my time reading it more than I usually do, which had both its pros and its cons. I felt like I retained it all short-term more than I would have (not needing to reread paragraphs twice in a row or anything) otherwise. But I also don’t remember my initial reactions to the book as much as […]

Review: The Consequence of Revenge by Rachel Van Dyken

Review: True story: I read this while on a business trip in June, and the laughter-induced snorting it caused was so bad that my coworkers (and roommates for the trip) came¬†into my bedroom to check on me when they thought I was choking to death. Remember in my review of The Consequence of Loving Colton, when I said they straddled the line between outrageous and outrageously annoying really closely? The Consequence of Revenge straddled it even more. Not because the writing was really different or anything. Max was just always the most over-the-top character, so it’s a given when he’s […]

Review: Dream of You by Jennifer Armentrout

My Review: So, I’ve been intrigued by, but have never read, a 1001 Dark Nights novella before. Mostly because I was kind of confused about how they worked – I knew they were related to other series but wasn’t sure if / how they were related to each other. So I held back from buying any before finally deciding, “maybe I just need to dive in,” and reading this. I’m still kind of really confused about how the 1001 Dark Nights thing works, but I didn’t need to get it to enjoy the book. Don’t you love when you can […]

Review: Capture by Penny Reid

Review: As we know, I usually don’t love the last book in a series. Because most of the time,¬†all they do is conclude the series. The sole focus of the book is on tying up loose ends and stuff like that. Capture definitely wasn’t like that – the plot moves forward¬†a lot before it gets wrapped up in a pretty bow. I loved how much both Katy and Martin grew in this series. So often in this genre, we romanticize relationships that frankly don’t bring out a character’s best traits. It’s refreshing to see a relationship that, for the most […]

Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

Review: Eek! Nell, we are each others spirit animals. Always and forever. Any book that’s focused on lists immediately has a soft spot in my heart. Especially to-do lists, and I believe bucket lists kind of fall under that umbrella. Also, a soft spot for Cora Carmack books in general exists in my heart. I can’t decide exactly where All Played Out exists in my personal enjoyment ranking of the Rusk U books, ¬†but right now I think it’s tied for first. It was definitely better for me than All Broke Down, even though I totally loved that. I guess […]
