The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Funny thing about this book, I had ordered an advanced readers copy of this book from a Shelf Awareness email, and set it aside with my other tons of “to-read” books. Forgetting about it, I saw the book sitting on a table in the break room at the bookstore and picked it up to read. […]

Separation Anxiety by Karen Brichoux

For chick lit, this was very depressing. Yeah, you know the girl is always going to have issues, and the book will start that way. But this chick had a totally messed up life and we got to see all the dirty laundry. And you don’t quite get why she has to separate herself from […]

Finally finished all 1074 pages of this huge novel. Really, it’s actually about the size of another Stephen King novel, It, my favorite King novel of all time. It’s longer than Breaking Dawn, or any of the Harry Potter novels as well. It was good once I got into it, and it isn’t that it […]

Around the World in 80 Dates by Jennifer Cox

I’ve decided instead of numbering all of my book reviews, I’ll just put the name in the title as I did with this. I don’t always blog about all the books I read, partly because I reread books often, like the Twilight series, and Harry Potter whenever a new Harry Potter movie comes out. Last […]
