Review – The Right Kind of Rogue by Valerie Bowman

Review – The Right Kind of Rogue by Valerie Bowman

I had a lot of fun reading The Right Kind of Rogue. It was one of those romances that was a bit over the top but highly entertaining and one I would recommend to fans of the genre. Meg has been in love with her best friend’s brother since she was a teenager and now that he’s finally looking for a bride she’s determined to throw […]

Review – Tool of War by Paolo Bacigalupi

Review – Tool of War by Paolo Bacigalupi

For not reading the first two books in this series beforehand (yeah, not my smartest move) I actually really enjoyed this book. Tool of War felt like the complete opposite of so many young adult novels I’ve read. It’s dark. It’s dystopian. And usually I’m not a fan of the genre because every book sounds like something I’ve already read but I loved seeing a book that really tackled […]

Review – The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

Review – The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

You know when you get SO excited for a book, your expectations are SO high. . . and then reality sets in and crushes everything you expected. The Diabolic was easily one of my top 5 favorite reads of 2016 and when I learned it was getting a sequel I completely freaked out. I needed the next book. I got the next book. Overall, The Empress was disappointing. I think […]

Mini Review – Just One Year by Gayle Forman

I read the first installment of this series, Just One Day, quite a few years ago now and I tried to read this one right after, but for some reason I could not get into it. I had always wanted to finish this duology but never got around to it. A few weeks ago, I went to the library for the first time in forever […]

Mini Review – Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

Mini Review – Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

As soon as I heard about Beasts Made of Night, I just knew I had to read it. And after reading Akata Witch which is both Nigerian-influenced as well as set within the country, I became even more intrigued by the culture within the realm of fiction. Unfortunately, while Akata Witch quickly became a favorite read of the year, Beasts Made of Night almost ended up on my DNF shelf. […]

Review – Christmas at Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer

Review – Christmas at Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer

A little cheesy and with plenty of fluff, Christmas at Two Love Lane is the perfect light romance to get you in the holiday spirit. Despite some of the more over-the-top elements, I ultimately enjoyed reading this book and definitely will check out future installments. Macy is a matchmaker in Charleston, SC, and meets her match in Deacon, a visitor from New York who’s looking to […]

Review – Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

Review – Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

This book wasn’t made for me. I say that, having read it (and in approximately 30 minutes too so you know it’s interesting) and thinking on it for a bit afterward. Pashmina is about an Indian-American teenager, Pri, who doesn’t know much about her mother’s culture but soon finds herself eager to learn more. First, the balance of cultural differences with the added bit of magic […]
