Kiera Cass: The Selection Series

Honestly, the main thing that lead me to these books were the pretty dresses. The elegance of them made me think of the Luxe series (found here). Being a sucker for pretty dresses, I purchased the first book. While not intellectually stimulating, these novels were addicting. As a background for all three books, it is … Continue reading Kiera Cass: The Selection Series

John Green: TFIOS, Will Grayson & Katherines

I knew about John Green way before I heard about his novels. In college, during some down time I would be looking through the website Upworthy and would come across one of John Green's vlogs. They are simply amazing. I admired this man for his drive to educate the ignorant on issues they didn't know … Continue reading John Green: TFIOS, Will Grayson & Katherines

Eva Ibbotson So lately I've been on a historical romance kick, it seems to be all that I've read in the past month.

When I … Continue reading A Countess Below Stairs

Vampire Academy Series

This series consists of six books titled, "Vampire Academy," "Frost Bite," "Shadow Kiss," "Blood Promise," "Spirit Bound," and "Last Sacrifice." I believe this is the third time that I've read the … Continue reading Vampire Academy Series

The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald Goodreads Summary: In 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait … Continue reading The Great Gatsby
