Out Next Read {11}

Out Next Read {11}

“Our Next Read” is a feature here on Lily’s Book Blog that i’ve neglected for a while (but am I here to finally bring back!) that highlights one book (every so often) that i’m dying to get my hands on and is being released soon. This book is ideally one we should all add to our TBR piles! Either because of all the recent hype surrounding it or because it somehow just landed on my radar and now i’m eagerly anticipating it. Today, the book that convinced me bring back “Our Next Read” is drum roll This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills  […]

I’ve Sucked at Reading This Year But We’re Not Breaking Up Yet

I’ve Sucked at Reading This Year But We’re Not Breaking Up Yet

My reading life and I have always been a partnership. Our relationship has been so intimate and so strong, wherever I go, a book comes with me. We just work that way. Or so we did–until this past year when I started University and suddenly we were “On A Break.” Getting adjusted to dorm life (and the 3 am fire alarms, refrigerator disasters, and shower wait times) while also somehow juggling a measly social life and weekly mandatory readings was hard. Add in the countless hours I spent in the library finishing up papers at 2 a.m and suddenly it’s not hard to […]

It Ends With Us: Review

It Ends With Us: Review

I have a ridiculous name quota per book. It ends at one. This book had three. Lily Blossom Bloom, Ryle Kincaid and…Atlas. Maybe those names should have been my first clue that it was time to put this one down and walk away. But I didn’t. I stuck this one through and finished it in a few short hours. A few short unhappy hours, sure. But I couldn’t just not read this one. I’m on a noble pursuit to not quite give up on Colleen Hoover yet. Her latest reads haven’t left a good taste in my mouth, but I guess I’m […]

Moonshot: Review

Moonshot: Review

I was first introduced to Alessandra Torre’s writing with her earlier, darker books. They were initially the stories that sucked me in. Torre didn’t simply flirt with the idea of of taboo subjects, she faced them head on with a very “take no prisoners” approach. It was gold. Alessandra Torre can easily tackle any genre out there. Romance, Thriller, Mystery or flat out Contemporary, she dominates each and every genre out there, but also seems to make her own mix of genres with each books she releases. As of late, Alessandra Torre’s books seem to be flirting the line between contemporary love stories […]

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1): Review

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1): Review

Cassandra Clare is a longtime favorite here in the blogosphere. Her tales of Shadowhunters, warlocks, and epic romance have become a staple in YA literature. Is there anyone who hasn’t at least read one of the TMI books? Regardless of whether or everyone loves every TID and TMI book out there—we all know them. After The Infernal Devices, I did not think I would revisit the Shadowhunter world. Part of me felt that the continuation of books was going to burn out the genre. I loved TID, but after the third (and supposedly last) book in the TMI series– City of Glass–I […]

One True Loves: Review

One True Loves: Review

I’ve gone backwards and forwards with my thoughts and feelings towards One True Loves since I finished reading it. Some days i’m at peace with the story, and other days i’m just so conflicted with how everything went about. Coming up with a general consensus (or rating) even seems impossible since my thoughts are so schizophrenic. As much as I enjoyed my reading experience with One True Loves, i’m not a hundred percent sure I enjoyed the book. Without a doubt, Taylor Jenkins Reid is a mastermind at taking ordinary relationships, placing them in extraordinary circumstances and than showcasing them under a microscope […]

The Girl on the Train: Review

The Girl on the Train: Review

I’m a little bit late to the party when it comes to The Girl on the Train. While i’ve had this book on my TBR pile for over a year, i’ve just been a slacker. It wasn’t until the trailer for the film adaptation dropped a few weeks ago that I finally tackled my TBR pile and fished the book out and into salvation. And holy crap, am I glad I did. This book was impossible to put down. The book itself was amazing, the main characters? Yeah, not so much. Frankly, they were horrible. Our main protagonist–Rachel— is someone whose head […]

I Finally Finished Queen of Shadows…7 Months Later

I Finally Finished Queen of Shadows…7 Months Later

  Anyone whose been following me on any of my social media platforms undoubtedly understands my love for the Throne of Glass series. It’s deep, aching, and such an engrained part of me. Throne of Glass was one kickass book i loved. Crown of Midnight was the book that shattered my soul. Heir of Fire was the book that gave me all sorts of emotions. And Queen of Shadows…Well it was the book that started an emotional battle within me that lasted…seven months. Yeah, you read that right. SEVEN MONTHS. While I absolutely love every book in the Throne of Glass series […]

Before We Were Strangers: Review

Before We Were Strangers: Review

I first picked up Before We Were Strangers during the lazy summer days of August. Suffering from a Summer long reading slump (which may or may not have been due to my anxouisness for the Summer to be over and for University to begin) I was constantly looking for new releases to read in hopes of kicking my reading slumps butt. Before We Were Strangers did more than just kick my reading slumps butt, it forced me to stay up all night and completely devour it. Before We Were Strangers is for all intents and purposes, a second chance love story. Now, […]

F*ck Love: Review

F*ck Love: Review

I naturally gravitate to Tarryn Fisher whenever I want to read a romance that is both achingly beautiful and unbelievably depressing. The girl knows how to break her readers hearts. There is no doubt about it. Her previous book, Marrow, was her first non romance heavy book. Instead Marrow was more of a dark thriller. While I really enjoyed Marrow, I finished it still very much craving that angsty romance i’ve come to associate Tarryn with (look at me–using first names, i wonder if she knows we’re secretely bestie?). I went into F*ck Love thinking I was finally going to get my messy […]
