Oh this book. I simply adored it! I'll admit that I initially wanted to read it because of the mention of 5SOS in the blurb :P Thankfully I loved everything about this book, and not the just 5SOS mentions.
Told in multiple POVs, Unrequited is, as you can guess, the story of unrequited love. But it is so much more than that. It is about listening to your heart and following your dreams. The book sort of reminded me of those films Valentines Day and New Years Eve where there all these little stories that interconnect, but with fewer people. Normally I don't like when there are more than 2 or 3 POVs but I actually loved that we got so many this time. The story wouldn't have been the same if we only had Kat's POV. Speaking of Kat, omg I loved that girl! She was such a great character. Her snark and cynicism were brilliant and I found myself laughing so many times. I loved her taste in music too ;) Angus I also loved. He was the perfect love interest. Joel (med student from the train) I didn't really like as a love interest for Kat. He treated her like a little sister that he had to protect more so than a potential girlfriend. The multiple POVs helped move the story along at the perfect pace. It wasn't rushed or dragged. And I absolutely loved the music element. I need to hear the songs they wrote! Oh and if you are any way a romantic like me prepare to cry! The concert near the end of the book? Tears! Those who have read it know what I'm talking about ;) Normally I would say that I would love a sequel but I actually think the ending was perfect. I would love a book about the other band members though, especially Reuben :)
Overall this was a sweet and fabulous read. The perfect escape from reality. I just loved it! ...more

This book was fascinating. Andrews has taken a beloved classic and put a fresh and unique spin on it. Peter Pan has always been one of my favourite fairy-tales and so I was excited to see where Andrews would take the story. And I really liked it. I could not put this book down. The book is full of mystery and you are left constantly asking yourself if what Gwen experienced on the island actually happened. Very little is revealed throughout the book which made me all the more engaged in the story. I needed to know where the story was gonna go. The characters in this book were great. I really liked Gwen. I could really feel for her and her frustration with not knowing if she was crazy or not. And Peter. Andrews got his personality spot on. He is cocky, childish, possessive and a complete jerk most of the times. Basically Peter Pan all grown up. The relationship between these two is raw and a little unstable but I still couldn't help but root for them. I don't want to say anything about the story-line cause I'm afraid of giving away spoilers. But the one thing that is annoying me? That fricking ending! It just stops! Please tell me there will be another book. I need to know what happens next! You can't just leave it like that!
I really recommend this book. It is a dark and edgy NA spin on a children's classic. A wonderful read.

This review is gonna be short and sweet because if I go on for too long I'm just gonna be rambling and repeating myself. This book was AWESOME!! Like seriously I am fangirling over how fricking cute it was! I think this has become my favourite novel by Cassie Mae. It was so adorkable and sweet and nerdy and funny and...I think you get the idea ;) I loved Sierra! I didn't know what I was gonna think of her because I didn't really like her in How to Date a Nerd but after Band Geek I think I like her even more than Zoe :) Bless her heart she is so awkward and such a glutz. It was like watching Bambi learn how to walk. Her inner monologue was hilarious. She is such a dork. And she suffers from a serious case of word vomit. I cringed so many times :P I loved Levi. He was so sweet and adorable. I felt so bad for what he was going through at home. I would have liked there to be a bit more of him in the story, to find out more about what he was going through but I'm sure we'll see more of him in the next book as it's about his sister, Brea. I loved too that we got to see more of Zak and Zoe. They are so cute together and are still the biggest geeks ever :P
So yeah if ya can't tell, I loved this book :) It was all kinds of cute and had another awesome ending! If you are looking for something light and fun and will leave you with the biggest grin on your face then this is the book for you. I cannot recommend it enough! Now bring on book 3, How to Hook a Bookworm :)

When I read the blurb for this book I could not wait to read it! I love Sarah’s books and so I knew this one was going to be great. And holy hell was it! I devoured this book! Out of Control is the story of Liva and how one night changes her life forever. After moving to New York, the people she is staying with are brutally murdered and Liva quickly finds herself running for her life. She makes an unlikely ally in Jay, a car thief, and the two frantically try to shake those who are chasing them. Why are these people so determined to get their hands on Liva? What do they want with her? And will she and Jay be able to make it out of this mess alive?
This book was everything I was hoping it would be. Fast-paced and action-packed, I could not get enough. Everything around me just disappeared and this book took up my entire focus. I was completely sucked into Liva and Jay’s world. There were countless twist and turns, I didn’t know what was gonna happen next or how it was all gonna end. Entertaining and exhilarating, I could so see this being made into a film. The relationship that builds between Liva and Jay was brilliant. I loved the chemistry these two had. The entire story takes place over the course of a day or so, so there is no insta-love. The romance was very minimal and even though I am a big romantic I felt like any more would have been unrealistic. The amount that was present was more than enough for this story. The book is a standalone but I would love to revisit these characters in the future, to see what they have gotten up to.
A high octane thrill ride that never lets up and will have you on the edge of your seat, this is one book not to be missed. ...more

This was better than The Elite thankfully. There was much more focus on the rebels and more of a storyline outside of the love triangle. America still annoyed the hell out of me though. Although she does have a good heart and does try to make the right choices she still was so stupid about certain things and just frustrated me to no end. Maxon I still really liked. Even though he annoyed me a couple times too I still was rooting for him. I enjoyed the story too. It was entertaining and it kept my attention. I'm happy with how it ended, even if most of the action that took place in the entire book happened in the last chapter. ...more
