What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

This was a great little book, mostly because of how effectively the audience is immersed into the point of view of a love-struck fifteen year old girl finding her place in the world, who doesn’t really understand everything that is going on because the world of adults is confusing. I’m not normally drawn to war […]

The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline

There’s not a lot for me to say about this book for two reasons: One is that I DNF’d it at 35%, and two, I DNF’d it at 35% because NOTHING HAPPENED. I normally hate saying that nothing happened in a book because something always does, but seriously, all that had happened one entire third […]

No Such Person by Caroline B Cooney

While I enjoyed this book, with all the drama and angst, and the setting was beautiful, the atmosphere was heavy with dread, and it did seem suspenseful, I do not really consider it a mystery. I mean sure, someone was murdered, and someone was framed for that murder, but the book didn’t go into investigating […]

The King of Crows (The Diviners #4) by Libba Bray

This series is absolutely outstanding. There is everything to love about it: it’s got an amazing diverse cast of characters I just can’t help but love, the worldbuilding is immersive and influential (I seriously start talking like the characters while I’m listening to the audiobook), the plots are slow and steady enough to draw you […]

Clique Bait by Ann Valett

Clique Bait by Ann Valett (and Australian author!) is a high school rich mean girls revenge and fake dating story set in an American high school, with a cynical lead vowing to get revenge on the mean kids clique that did something terrible to her ex-best friend. It’s full of glitz and glamour, loads of […]

Red Hood by Elana K Arnold

When you first received this book for review, you were a little uncertain. Would it be as awesome as Damsel? Could a strange, unearthly, almost-retelling of Little Red Riding Hood ever live up to your admittedly high expectations? You almost psyched yourself out and didn’t request it, after all. But once you opened it and […]

The Upside of Falling by Alex Light

If you’re looking for a quick, fluffy romance book with little emotional investment, filled with cute moments, delicious bakery treats, and two lead characters who aren’t complete nincompoops and both going through their own emotional journeys, then this is the book for you. Seriously, if anyone ever asks me to recommend them a YA romance, […]
