Mini Review – Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

I’ll come right out and say that I didn’t request this book, didn’t even know it existed, until it showed up on my porch one day. It’s not one I’d even pick up by choice, to be honest, but I thought that I’d give it a go, expand my reading horizons and all that. . . . and I wish […]

I’ve been hearing so many wonderful things about it that, even though I RARELY like contemporary YA’s, I thought I’d give it a go. For the most part, this is a pretty quick read. I did find myself […]

Review – Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova

Magic is running rampant this year and Labyrinth Lost is no exception. Cordova introduces us to brujas (not witches) and there are a bunch in Brooklyn. Go figure. But this is the story of a bruja who isn’t so eager to accept her magical gift and the lengths she will go to avoid it end up causing a whole new string […]
