30 Day Book Challenge – Day 3

Your Favorite Series Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard I already used Harry Potter, so here’s a (very different) close second. I’ve been reading these since the year they started coming out – long before the show was even thought of. She was first only going to write 8, I believe, then decided to have 16 in the actual series plus two bonus books (a prequel and one covering their winter vacation). Whenever a new PLL book was released, I would read it immediately and finish within two days. I’m currently anxiously awaiting the final book, Vicious, which will come out in December of this year. People say the books have gone downhill since about halfway through the series, but I have been intrigued and engaged the entire time. If you like the show, I would definitely recommend reading these. The plot of the series is VERY different from the show, so you won’t get the two easily confused.

Isla Is Coming Readalong / Review: Anna and the French Kiss

 The Isla Is Coming readalong kicked off on the last day of July and I decided to take part! Unlike most people participating, I’m reading the series for the first time. (Click on the picture on the right to read the informational post). I started reading Anna and the French Kiss on Friday, when the readalong started, and I basically haven’t stopped it reading since. I just finished the book (WAY too early!) and now I’m going to wait another few days before starting Lola and the Boy Next Door with the rest of the readers. It’ll be hard to resist but I really want to keep pace with the readalong. Of course, the point of the readalong is to gear up for the third book’s release – Isla and the Happily Ever After on the 14th. Judging by how much I absolutely loved the first book, I’m sure I’ll really enjoy the next two in this totally adorable trilogy. So now here’s my review for the first book in the Isla Is Coming readalong! Review: This is exactly what I’m looking for when I read a young adult romance. All YA authors should read this book before writing one of their own. I feel like I smiled to myself like an idiot throughout the whole book; it was just so damn cute. Anna was one of the most relatable characters I’ve encountered. Her experiences completely mirror those of the average teenage girl: getting screwed over by a best friend, falling for a boy […]

30 Day Book Challenge – Day 2

A Book That You’ve Read Again And Again The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky Okay so I haven’t technically read this over and over again. I don’t like to reread books, as I’ve said before, because I feel like there are so many books out there I would never get to if I kept rereading my favorites. However, this is one book I fully intend on reading repeatedly throughout my life. I borrowed it from the library back in middle school and loved every second of it. Since then, I’ve purchased it for my kindle to have for future readings. I think sometime within the next few months I’ll read this one again, since I recently saw the movie and was inspired to. For me, this is a modern-day version of The Catcher in the Rye.
