Mini Instagram Reviews | Round Up #1

Friday, August 22, 2014
Recently (any by recent I mean a month ago) I posted about my new project, MINI REVIEWS ON INSTAGRAM. It was about time I tried something new. A recap for those who missed it, I started another instagram for the sole purpose of posting mini book reviews. About every two weeks or more I'll post a round up of my "reviews" on the blog. I might even expand upon a few into full reviews later.

When I said mini reviews and I really meant mini. I didn't realize how difficult it would be to write such short "reviews" which were more like my rambling thoughts than anything coherent. It'll get better people. I'm working on it.

SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE by Morgan Matson

Summary: "You are your friends", but who're we without them? Emily faces the challenge when her best friend, Sloane, disappears with only a random to-do list as a goodbye. [goodreads]

What I Loved: 1) THE LIST- So creative! Tasks include ride a horse, steal something, kiss a stranger, and more! Such a fun story to read.
2) UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIPS - I live for these. They're the ones who make life interesting. Emily meets up with some unlikely people (LOVE THEM ALL) to help w/the list.
3) SUBTLE ROMANCE - Love that its not in your face.
4) FRANK PORTER- Everyone needs to read this just to meet Frank. Trust me.

RATING: 5 out of 5



THE PROGRAM & THE TREATMENT by Suzanne Young

Summary: "In Sloane's world, true feelings are forbidden, teen suicide is an epidemic, & the only solution is The Program" [goodreads]

Thoughts: This is the series that finally got me out of a weird reading slump. Fast paced and incredibly interesting, Young creates a frightening realistic world in the not-so distant future.

What I Loved: 1) SLOANE & JAMES - I love that their relationship began before the story.
2) ORIGINAL STORY.
3) ALL THE CHARACTERS- This was one of those books where I found  EVERYONE to be interesting.
4 )AMAZING SERIES CONCLUSION - It drives me nuts when I invest in a series and the ending is less than satisfying. But Young is fantastic with tying up every loose ends.

SERIES RATING: 5 out of 5



SPIRIT & DUST by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Summary: "Daisy Goodnight can speak to the dead. And she's really good at it. Good enough to help the police & FBI solve the occasional homicide"[goodreads]

Thoughts: Don't let that cover fool. This book is hilarious w/Daisy's witty & sarcastic remarks. Although the subject matter is dark, the author succeeds in keeping this is a light & enjoyable read.

What I loved: 1)WITTY CHARACTERS -wish I could think of comebacks that quick.
2)GOOD MYSTERY

RATING: 4 out of 5
*this ARC has a different cover than the finalized copies* 




TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han


Summary: "Lara Jean has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, & hid it in a box under her bed. But one day she discovers that her secret box of letters has been mailed" [goodreads]

What I loved: 1) LARA JEAN- Love her to pieces. Such a great narrator. Many moments when I realized we were one. Let's be awkward together, Lara Jean.
2) THE BOYS - Love the confrontations and reactions to the letters.
3) LETTERS - So creatively done. Simply amazing.
4) FAMILY- absolutely love how important they are in her life.
5) NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. In a good way.

RATING: 4.5 out of 5
So much love for this book! But a warning that THIS IS A SERIES. Learned this the hard way.

  1. Haha, these are REALLY brief. I don't think I could successfully do these because I love rambling! The idea of fitting all my thoughts into a few sentences is incredibly daunting for me but I think you do a great job (plus your photographs are gorgeous)! I still think these are such a lovely and unique idea. And yay for Since You've Been Gone & To All the Boys I've Loved Before! Two of my favourite 2014 releases so far. Happy you enjoyed them as well!
