Today I am going to be reviewing the If I Stay duology by Gayle Forman. This duology is composed of If I Stay and Where She Went. I will also share some of my thoughts on the If I Stay film. I actually listened to both of these novels as audiobooks. I actually had mixed feelings about these audiobooks, and I will share some of my feelings on those as well. But first, here is the synopsis of If I Stay from Goodreads:
"Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?
Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters."

Book Review Mash-Up (1) *13 to Life/Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe/The 100/Beautiful Disaster/White Cat/Obsidian*
Today I'm going to be doing a Review Mash-Up of 6 books that I've read anywhere from 2 months ago to 3 years ago. Some of these books were very good, while others were simply mediocre. I put these books together because of the fact that I only remember certain things from each of these books because I failed at posting a review as I read them. The general ideas, and some major happenings are still in my memory bank, but most situations from these books are forever lost until I decide to pick these books up again, if I ever decide to. The books I will be reviewing are:
- 13 to Life by Shannon Delany
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
- The 100 by Kass Morgan
- Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
- White Cat by Holly Black
- Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Today I'm going to be doing something a little different. I'm going to be reviewing twenty books in one post. I'm aware it sounds a little crazy, and nearly impossible to do, but I'm going to attempt to review every book I read in my English classes of high school. Obviously I'm not going to be going into a ton of detail on each book, but some will be longer than others. These will be more long pieces of works, I'm not going to be reviewing like 2 page short-stories we read, and each of the ones I mention are quite significant pieces of literature. The books in order from 9th grade to 12th grade are:
