“I had a giant penis in my purse.”
I should have known – if the very first sentence in the book was “I had a giant penis in my purse.” – I was going to love this book. Tripping on a Halo is my first romantic comedy and it was a heart-stopper! I was thrilled to receive an ARC of Alessandra Torre’s latest work, but I’ve made a couple of failed attempts at romantic comedies this year. I’d decided that maybe I just wasn’t a romantic comedy kind of girl. I’m supposed to read a funny book as a requirement for my 2018 reading challenge and everything I’d tried so far ended up falling flat and ultimately being shelved. It’s ended up being the absolute hardest category for me to fulfill and I did not see that coming. I love humor, but apparently not in book form. Then I got my hands on this little gem.… Read the rest
In a lot of ways, I was one of the lucky ones. My high school crush liked me back. It should have been magic and fire, but it was tragic and brutal. I wrote it that way, anyways.
His name was Bryan Winthrop. He was our high school basketball star. The prom king. The most beautiful boy I had ever laid eyes on. He liked me — the theatre geek who never should have caught his eye — but he loved her.
It’s been more than 10 years since the homecoming dance. Since the night he kissed me, breaking both of our hearts for the first time.
After the scandal, after graduation, I left our small town and made a name for myself on Broadway, then in Hollywood. I didn’t mean for the play I wrote about our high school affair to blow up.… Read the rest
“And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl.”
As a new book blogger, I was thrilled to receive Sadie as my first physical ARC! I’m addicted to e-books, but every true book nerd knows there’s nothing like having an actual book in your hands every once in a while.
After I read the blurb I knew I was in for an awesome summer read. I love a good thriller so I couldn’t wait to dive in!
This is the first book I’ve read by Courtney Summers and it left me a bit heartbroken, and appropriately so. This isn’t a happily-ever-after, although, I’m not sure the story could have or rather, should have, ended any other way. Its overall theme is pretty much a tragedy. Sadie knows nothing except to live for her sister Maddie.
Sadie is not just well-written, it is very uniquely written. Alternating between Sadie’s POV as she tracks down the mystery surrounding her sister’s murder, and a transcript-like narrative of a podcast showcasing Sadie and Maddie’s story, you’re able to piece together the story from every possible angle and see it from the point of view of everyone involved.… Read the rest
