1. Recently Watched The last book you read Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
I was able to receive a copy of this book to review, and I have to say, I was a little bit disappointed. I guess I just wanted more from it altogether.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny HanThe Cruel Prince by Holly Black
I actually enjoyed The Cruel Prince a lot more then I thought I would. To All the Boys, was actually a disappointment to me, it seemed like a lot of the characters were acting like jerks.

Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich Review

Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich ★★ “I do stupid things when I'm nervous, which means I'm constantly doing stupid things.” 
Before reading this, I had previously knew the story, hence the musical and listening to the soundtrack, when I really liked, that all being said...I had no idea there was going to be so much in this book that made me uncomfortable.
While reading, I realized I had to separate this book and the musical, because this book was turning something I adored, into something that made me cringe. It seems like you shouldn't mess with something an enormous amount of people love and try to adapt it into a book or the other way around into a movie, sometimes it works, and in this case, it didn't. 
I cannot stand when a character continuously lies to people, especially when it's a huge lie that could tear someone's heart out.
Anxiety is something that doesn't just disappear like the author said it did as soon as Evan started to hang out with Zoe, yes it…

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor Review

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor
★★ The fact that this book let me down hurts my heart to no end. I loved Strange the Dreamer, as you could probably tell by my review. If you follow me, you would know that I read this book in less than 48 hours, because I was excited for this book! It just really let me down.

So much that happened in this book I didn't sign up for and not in a good way. There was so much terror, abuse, and even more sadness then I expected.
I would've enjoyed Nova and Kora's story more, if they've been introduced in the first book. It was hard to feel for these characters that you just met, when you had these well-known characters from the first book.
Something that was lacking in this book was plot, it just was not there. It seemed like the only important parts of the book were in the last 150 pages. The rest of the book was a lot of backstory and unnecessary sitting around.
There would've been more going on if we didn't have to see Ruza, Thyon an…

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White Review

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White


★★ This book completely exceeded my expectations...

I don't know how Kiersten White does it, but the way she wrote Elizabeth's character and POV with her relationship with Victor, it was exactly the way Elizabeth would feel after growing up in an such a terrible environment. Same thing with Justine, she continuous thought everything was her fault, because that's all she'd ever been told and after a while she beg
Henry was only in this book in flashbacks, and somehow in those short scenes, I managed to love and adore him, especially after the way he tried to look after Elizabeth.
This was one of those books that I could vividly see in my head, from the house to the laboratory. Especially the bookstore where Mary worked.
Every plot twist in this book shocked me, even though you felt that you knew exactly what was going to happen next. 
I loved this book and I especially love the way Kiersten White writes. This w…

Mammoth by Jill Baguchinsky ARC Review

Mammoth by Jill Baguchinsky


When I read books where characters continuously make poor choices, it irritates me and makes me feel bad for the character.
I did enjoy the romance and the science part of this book. I think there need to be more books with main enjoy science and learning. It was nice to see that in this one.
After finishing this book, I found that I was annoyed by the word 'awesome', it's said so much in this book that it starts to get tiresome.
I enjoyed this book, and thought the idea of mammoths was a cute theme.
I just wished there was more going on other then the usual side romance and an antagonist trying to hurt our main character is someway or form. 

I received an Advanced Reader's Copy in exchange for my honest review

Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman Review

Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman ★★
This was one of my most anticipated reads for October, and I just don't know I felt about it!! I felt like as a 'thriller', this was an interesting book. 

The kid gang that happened in this book felt like every dystopian book ever, which I find kind of irked me. This book was following all the other tropes in most books I've seen.

One thing I didn't expect in this book was the amount of death and fear of characters dying in this book. It was sad to see Kelton's brother being shot by his father, and then for us to find out that he'd been staying in the bug out using up all the emergency supplies was sad too, his brother hated living at home so much that he lived in a bug out and never told his family about it or how he need help.
I know a lot of people might not feel the same way, but when Alyssa and her brother found their dog,  Kingston, and he had gotten in with another feral dog pack and he wasn't acting right, it jus…
