In Which I Finish Isla and the Happily Ever After . . .

  6. Stephanie Perkins is very good at bringing out the teenager in her readers. I'm only 21% in but that is exactly how I feel about Isla and the Happily Ever After so far.

  7. Veeeery good. And particularly with this one, I thought.

  8. I really loved this--the more I think about it, the more I think it's maybe my favorite of her three. There's something both magical and real about Isla & Josh's story.

  9. Exactly. I really need to do a reread of LOLA. I reread ANNA not long back and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Now for LOLA so I can make an informed decision.

    But, yeah. Josh + Isla. Dang.

  10. I just finished. What a wonderful, heady, romantic read. And it's impossible to put down!

  11. Perfect description, JoLee. Heady and romantic. So so sweet.

  12. I loved The Fault in Our Stars. Should I read these possibly? I don't usually like romance but if it's different than I can handle it.

  13. I think these would be a great bet! They're not heavy romances, just sweet and swoony lovely ones. :)

  14. Glad it worked out for you! I was so excited for this, but it didn't end up being my cup of tea...YA is the best, but these books (especially Isla) were a little bit TOO teenager-ish?

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin
