Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Thursday, June 25, 2015
Why I chose this book: 
I originally listened to maybe 15% of this audiobook a couple years back, and because it was my first time jumping into audiobooks, I just couldn’t hack it for some reason, so I stopped and never picked it up again… that is, until my friend Addison devoured all of the series in a couple short weeks and swore up and down that I MUST read them.

Guest Review: Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn

Saturday, May 16, 2015
Today, we have an extra special quest reviewing for us today. Her name is Caitlin and is a dear high school friend, and I have found that I love her ultra-personal book reviews on her blog and I thought we should have her guest review here! So without further ado, welcome Caitlin:

Hello, Of Spectacles and Books readers (or OSB's as I like to call you..ha!). I'm Caitlin. I blog over at Nothing Rhymes with Caitlin--I couldn't tell you what kind of blog I have, because it's always changing. But one thing I can agree with all of you on is books, and when my lovely high school friends, Amanda, asked me to guest review, I jumped at the chance!

Amanda sent me a little book by author Katie Finn, and I agreed to read and review after reading the synopsis, thinking it would be a light, summery read.

Synopsis:
Hot sun. Blue waves. New romances. Old secrets.

Gemma had her summer all planned out, but it takes a sharp turn when she gets dumped and finds herself back in the Hamptons after a five-year absence.

being there puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friends (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people don't hold grudges forever. Do they?

Gemma intends on making amends, but a small case of mistaken identity causes the people she knew years ago--including Hallie and her dreamy brother, Josh--to believe she's someone else. As though the summer wasn't complicated enough already. (Goodreads)
