They Both Die At The End was one of my most anticipated fall releases this year. It was also my first Adam Silvera book and I was so excited going into it. I had heard about so much heartbreak and my heart was ready for it. Maybe that was my problem. All over social media there was so much hype and I think I had […]
A debut historical romance, Wait for Me tells the story of a young woman in Scotland who is introduced to a German soldier meant to work on her farm. This is during World War II, mind you. While an enjoyable read for what it was, I’m not an avid reader of the genre and took a chance on this one but it wasn’t quite a good […]
I don’t know why, but Kasie West’s books always make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I never used to really like contemporary novels, but they have recently become a great way to relax. They’re extremely predictable, and a lot of them don’t include the diversity this community has been asking for, but even though I know they’re problematic, I still turn to them […]
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake is a dark fantasy that follows three sisters and their journey to killing each other. When I had first read the synopsis for this, I fell in love. I already love many of Kendare’s novel, so it wasn’t a surprise to me that I wanted to read this one as well. While reading it, I kept going back and […]
Not going to lie, I had high hopes for this book. Three queens, one throne, and a fight to the death to get it? Sounds pretty exciting to me. Katharine the poisoner, Mirabella the elementalist, and Arsinoe the naturalist will battle it out for rule of Fennbirn. Let’s start with our three queens. Katharine has been trained in the art of poisons. She’s a good student […]
The first part of this book was very slow going. There was a point when I didn’t even want to finish it. I read this for the #ReadThemAllThon and I considered switching this for another overhyped book. It was disappointing because I had heard so many good things about this book and I really wanted to like it. But it’s a good thing I stuck […]
The day Ivory and Bone arrived on my doorstep was a happy one indeed. One of my most anticipated reads for the summer, this book didn’t disappoint with its originality both in writing style and story. With the book’s release exactly a month ago, you should already be at your local bookstore with a copy in hand.
I am so excited for this book. It’ll be the first I’ve read of this author and I just can’t get over how good it sounds (or the gorgeous cover because, come on, it’s beautiful). Plus, sharing a name with the main character? Clearly it was meant to be. HarperTeen has some amazing releases coming out in 2017 and I plan to buy every single […]
You know, the marketing teams for these YA dystopians know how to get you. They pair a pretty girl in a pretty dress against a simple title that offers a mysterious aura to it. Then within this beautifully wrapped diamond is coal. Black, sooty, coal meant to fuel your intrigue further. Much like The Selection, I bought this book anticipating greatness and leaving with disappointment. I absolutely hated […]
What book are you looking forward to this week?
