Group Review: Furthermore

Hello Everyone! Jessie from Ageless Pages Reviews is joining Kara and Lyn today to review Furthermore! Thank you, Jessie, for the read along! Lyn: Okay, so I was a bit worried about this one, because I did read Shatter Me. Horrible Confession: I read the book because I loved the cover.   Jessie: I was of the same mind. I read Shatter Me, found it overblown and loaded with language that just didn’t flow the way the author obviously intended. But, I really liked her imagination enough to try this MG. I am glad I did because her style is much more »

Group Review: Nightstruck

For this group review, Jessie from Ageless Pages Reviews has joined us once again. Usually it’s just Jessie and Lyn, but I decided to join them for this one. Kara: I feel like this is going to be a really interesting discussion. After days of pondering, I still don’t know how I feel about Nightstruck. There were many things I liked, but I also don’t really care for how the book made me feel. So I am sitting here unsure of my rating still, and I am hoping this discussion really helps clarify it for me. Lyn: I agree, I almost more »

Group Review: Underwater

Jessie from Ageless Pages Reviews is helping me clean up my TBR ARC shelf – this month, we read the contemporary novel, Underwater, together. Jessie: Underwater by Marisa Reichardt. It’s gotten a lot of attention the last few weeks. Thoughts? Feelings? Impressions? Mine were, in general, positive, but this was not a favorite for me. Lyn: I have some very conflicting thoughts. There was some good things in the novel, things that I loved to see in a YA novel. But then there were some things that really annoyed the hell out of me. Which ones do you want to start more »

Group Book Review: Worlds of Ink and Shadow

Jessie from Ageless Pages Reviews has once again graced us with her presence and is joining me to review the magical realism of the Brontë siblings in Worlds of Ink and Shadow. Jessie: So. Worlds of Ink and Shadow. I have to admit I was drawn to this story for four reasons. #1) Anne, Emily, and Charlotte Bronte and #2) the title. Lyn: The cover is so beautiful, and I really loved the idea of creating this meta storyline with the Bronte sisters. So I was drawn to the different approach to a semi-autobiography of the sisters and their earlier stories and more »

Book Review: The Anatomical Shape of a Heart

Hello Readers! Jessie from Ageless Pages Reviews has once again graced us with her presence and is joining me to review the contemporary romance, The Anatomical Shape of a Heart. Jessie: So this review is going to be a bit different. I don’t think that you and I have ever disagreed so noticeably about a readalong novel before The Anatomical Shape of a Heart or TASoaH as it will be henceforth be referenced because daaaaamn that is a long title. Lyn: I do like the title that they gave it for the American release. Night Owls seems so overdone, you know? more »
