Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Image result for everything everything

Okay, so this was a really cute book. I really loved the relationship between Maddy and Olly, even though I thought the love developed a little too quick for my liking, but I can get past that. I loved Carla and found it fascinating how she felt more like Maddy’s mom then Pauline did. The reveal near the end of the book was a little surprising to me, but I did start suspecting something else might be going on that we weren’t aware of in the beginning of the story.
Really didn’t like the ending. To me it was as just as unsatisfying as Eleanor and Park‘s ending. I mean, it was in no way as bad, but I just wasn’t happy with how suddenly it ended. You couldn’t give me like a page or two more? I understand why Nicola Yoon decided to end it that way, but I’m not a fan of it.
I do really like Nicola Yoon‘s writing style. I loved how she told the story in a way that kept the story moving without it dragging, but still kept it entertaining. Just because the ending wasn’t my favorite, doesn’t mean I don’t want to read her other books. Actually it’s the exact opposite. I would love to read more of her work and get lost in these worlds she creates. I also really enjoyed her husband, David Yoon‘s, illustrations. Those were also another nice touch to keep the reader engaged in Maddy’s world.
Overall, loved the story, disliked the way it ended. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that loves quick, cute teen romance novels.
I’d give Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon 4outof5Stars.

Book Review: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (SPOILERS)

So, I read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell during this years BookTube-A-Thon and decided to record a review. This is actually more of a rant then a review and quite long, but I still hope you guys enjoy.

Also, I should mention that I gave the book 4outof5Stars. If you want to find out why this book only got 4 stars then you’ve got to watch the video.

Sense8 Cancelled?!

So, I was on Instagram, and was just scrolling through, and paused on this really cute picture Freema Agyeman had posted of Nomi & Amanita.

I was about to just scroll past it until I started to read her caption. As I read, I had to reread it because I couldn’t believe it. Then I went searching online for confirmation that this was true, not saying I didn’t believe Freema, but I needed some more confirmation. Seeing all these articles talking about Sense8′s cancellation broke my heart and filled me with anger.

Sense8 was a show that I didn’t really know anything about when I first started watching it, but I quickly fell in love with the characters, the story, the setting, and just the production of this show. When season 2 came out I was so excited to see what happened next with these characters that I loved. Season 2 was just as great as season 1 and the ending made me so excited for season 3. So knowing that I’m not going to see what happens next or know the fate of these characters angers me so much.

To the cast and crew, thank you so much for bringing this wonderful show into my life and I’m so sorry you won’t be able to tell us more of the story.

To Netflix, you just made the stupidest mistake ever in cancelling this show.

Book Review: The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

26025989

This book gave me so much insight into Carrie Fisher’s world. Reading about the whole process of getting cast as Leia, filming, promoting the film, and fan encounters was fascinating to read about and of course the parts about Harrison Ford were intriguing to me. I liked how similar yet different Carrie’s perspective, in the past and in present day, was on her relationship with Harrison. Her journals during her affair and filming the first Star Wars were interesting, but sometimes did drag a little bit. Not saying that’s a bad thing, but I actually found the parts in the book written by Carrie, in present time, a lot more interesting then her diary entries.
I wanted to give this a four, but I just couldn’t. I’d actually give it 3.5outof5Stars. This was the first book by Carrie Fisher I’ve ever read, and I really enjoyed it, and I definitely want to read more of her work.

Book Review: milk and honey by rupi kaur

So I am not a big poetry person, I mean I appreciate it, but it’s hard for me to read. Which is why I usually shy away from poetry/poetry collections, but I had heard so many good things about Milk and Honey that when I saw it a store recently I decided to get it. Then randomly today I started to read it and holy crap this was so good.
