Mini Reviews (2)

Mini Reviews is composed of, well, small reviews. These will likely be books I read forever ago or didn't enjoy a whole lot, but did finish. These reviews will be short and sweet.

Surprisingly good story. I expected a lot of fluff, but it turned out to be deeper than I was prepared for. Charlie and Will were both good characters.

Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers

All I can say is that I honestly hated this book. I've never disliked a book as strongly as this one. It guess it's good that Summers can make me feel such strong emotion, but the story was depressing. It was like a black hole. Regina was a beyotch, as were her ex-friends. Honestly, were do things like this happen? Because I have never, ever in my life experienced or seen someone experience anything like this. While reading this book, I felt so depressed. I honestly felt that I had no friends and that there was no hope left in my life. It sucked every single positive feeling out of me. I had to put it down often because I didn't like who I was when I read this. I've never been that depressed or lonely before. It was unbelievably scary that I experienced these kind of emotions from a book.

Never Bite A Boy on the First Date by Tamara Summers

Fluff. Another vapid addition to the vampire bandwagon. Read it if you must. I don't think my brain can honestly take more of this mush.

Time You Let Me In by Naomi Shihab Nye

Poems from 26 poets all under 25. I enjoyed a lot of these, though I was lost as to what a lot of them were about. That's probably just because I'm terribly with poetry. Many were creative, while others focused on intense subjects. I recommend it to mature audiences, as I think they'll be best understood by older ages.


  1. I didn't care much for Some Girls Are, I felt a lot like you did. I has gotten such good reviews but I just verily finished it, it was just so blah.

    Not read the other books but I do have Never Bite A Boy on the First Date in my TBR, so I might just leave it there for a

  2. Hee hee. I really enjoyed this post. I like the no nonsense approach.
