Review – Becoming Bonnie by Jenni L. Walsh

Review – Becoming Bonnie by Jenni L. Walsh

I never imagined I’d find myself reading a book about Bonnie and Clyde (well, Bonnie specifically, as the title suggests) but here I am and I have to say that it was both what I expected and not at the same time, but not necessarily in a bad way. For starters, historical fiction is always a hit or miss for me unless it’s in the […]

Mini Review – Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman

Mini Review – Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman

I really need to stop reading books that just aren’t my thing. Girl Out of Water happens to be one of those books. 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 skimming at times waiting for […]

Review – The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review – The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

This book needs to be required reading for everyone, though I think teens especially. It’s weird, we talk about representation in the book community in regards to certain groups of people but you know what I don’t see as much of? Good rep of teens. Just… teens. I read a LOT of young adult fiction and it hasn’t been that long since I was a […]

Review – I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Review – I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Ever since I read Gayle Forman’s If I Stay duology, I fell in love with her writing. It was always so heartbreaking, but it felt real. It talked about things that a lot of books don’t talk about and I liked that. I Was Here isn’t any different. This book addresses suicide and the fact that the internet can be a big place for others […]

Review – Wait for Me by Caroline Leech

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 […]

Review – Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

Review – Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

I feel like I missed something with Poison’s Kiss. Everyone seems to have absolutely loved it and I’m over here like “yeah, it was good, I’d probably buy it” but I can’t say I’m raving about it to everyone I see. This book moves both fast and slow and wasn’t nearly long enough for me. In the beginning, I can’t say I was really hooked. I […]

Review – Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

Review – Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

I was prepared going into Ever the Hunted to love it. To want to buy ALL the copies because I wouldn’t be able to get enough.  So when I started reading and put it down within a few chapters, I knew that dream was going to be shattered. This YA fantasy is every book I’ve read before. I had the same issues with Shadow Fall in the […]

Review – The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee is a drama filled contemporary with a scientific and mysterious twist. It follows 5 individuals through their everyday lives over the course of a few months (months? Is that right? I think so…). We see the different sides of The Tower’s many inhabitants. We see the rich and the poor, the sober and the drugged up, the insecure and […]
