Books I'm Hesitant to Read

Two reasons keep me from reading this book. The first one is the hype. The hype is real for this book. I don't want the hype to get to me because I am known for working up high expectations for a hyped book.

Audio Book Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest

Title: The Darkest Part of the Forest Series: Nope, it is a standalone!!! Author: Holly Black Narrated by: Lauren Fortgang Overall Goodreads Rating: 4.04 Genre: YA Fantasy Hours long: 8 HRS 39 MINS Published: Published January 13th 2015 by Hachette Audio My Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars!

Starcrossed I will talk about this book until the end of time. I see some people haul it, but they never get around to reading it, and it breaks my heart. I love the star cross lovers plot, the family dynamic, the comedy relief, and the fun twists to a classic. My love for this book will never die. 
Embrace This is another one that seems to be on alot of TBR lists, but not enough people have actually read it. I am currently re-reading this gem, and will have a review for it in the next couple of days. 
Half-blood I do think …
