The Virtue of Sin by Shannon Schuren

I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into with this book. I think I was expecting a bit of a dystopian – and it still kind of is, since it takes place inside a secluded community, which is why I have indicated that I think the genre can also be considered dystopian. But it’s […]

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston

Having loved Geekerella, I dove straight into The Princess and the Fangirl hoping for more of the same. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I absolutely loved the Con setting, I loved the characters of Jess and Imogen, and even the people around them like Imogen’s brother Milo and his boyfriend, her […]

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

My first Ashley Poston book was Among the Beasts and Briars, so I’m late to the party masquerade ball. Better late than never, right? I figured out pretty quickly that Poston can write, baby. So when I came across Geekerella at my local library, I knew it was highly likely I would enjoy it, especially […]

Love, Heather by Laurie Petrou

This book is about a young girl discovering her power when she breaks the rules to ‘get back’ at bullies. The story is about a 14 year old Canadian girl Stevie from a ‘broken’ home – her dad left when she was 12, although sometimes the timelines and flashbacks will have you guessing about the […]

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 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, […]

This Heart of Mine by CC Hunter

I’ve been really getting into YA mysteries lately, and though it’s really macabre, I love an investigation into whether an alleged suicide is actually a suicide. I picked this book because it sounded really interesting with a heart transplant twist, with the main female character receiving visions from her donor, who just happens to be […]

Unnatural Deeds by Cyn Balog

I was seriously contemplating quitting this book by about 15% through, because the protagonist, Vic, was behaving like a psycho, and literally every thought in her head was about the new mystery boy at school, Z. So I looked up some spoilers, because I was not happy to waste my time on another typical YA […]

People Like Us by Dana Mele

Going in to this book, I didn’t know is was sapphic, and to be honest, the blurb doesn’t hint at it very much. In fact, I put off borrowing this audiobook from my library for a few weeks because I assumed it would be a usual hetero-style romance thing, which it most definitely was not. […]

How We Roll by Natasha Friend

How We Roll was a sweet, short little book I read in a few hours in the early hours of the morning one night when I couldn’t sleep. It tells a story of self-acceptance from the point of view of a teen girl with alopecia, and her unlikely but endearing and bumpy friendship with a […]
