You Must Not Miss by Katrina Leno

I quite enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful, probably even bordering on horror, with a sprinkling of magical realism. I liked the atmospheric writing style. It was suspenseful and evocative, and I found it engaging and entertaining. I like the word choices and how the author kept the audience in suspense for most of the […]

Lucky Girl by Amanda Maciel

I had a lot of thoughts about this. I thought it was beautifully written. The skill of the author as a wordsmith and storyteller were really great. The word choice, pacing, and characterisation led to high engagement and I ended up reading this book pretty quickly. I didn’t much like Rosie as a person, but […]

Girls With Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young

I thought this book was phenomenal. It had everything I ever wanted. Amazingly strong, lovely female friendship and no backstabbing. Sweet yet realistic boy that isn’t required to save anyone because they save themselves An intelligent heroine I also thought this was plotted beautifully and really reminded me of Plato’s allegory of the cave. It […]

A Line in the Dark by Malinda Lo

I quite enjoyed this book, though there are a couple of things that I do have issues with. First I’ll talk about the good things: It’s queer and there is no judgement or hate for the queer characters. Jess’s mother, who is Chinese, even says, “If you’re a lesbian, that’ s not a problem.” Jess […]

Anything but Fine by Tobias Madden

You know how a couple of weeks ago I said I totally loved a book that I could totally see bits of my life in? Well, I had absolutely NOTHING in common with this book, and it still blew me away. Tobias Madden has been on my radar ever since he edited the Underdog #loveOzYa […]

They’ll Never Catch Us by Jessica Goodman

I loved this book. It had everything I ever wanted beautifully wrapped up in a stand-alone story. In this book, years ago a bunch of minority girls went missing and were found murdered, and the cops didn’t really care very much until a white girl also went missing. It was also questionable whether the person […]

The Monster of Her Age by Danielle Binks

Sometimes you find a book that speaks to your soul so personally, it’s as if the author ripped open your chest, dissected your heart under a microscope, found a whole bunch of things you love and identify with, and then wrote a book about it. To say that I understand why representation is important is […]

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

Cemetery Boys is an #ownvoices book about a gay trans Latinx boy trying to prove his place in his community: he believes that if he can prove he is a brujo, a kind of Latino witchdoctor who can summon, guide, and banish the spirits of the departed, instead of one of the traditionally feminine healing […]

Kind of a Big Deal by Shannon Hale

When I first red this book’s blurb, I was pretty excited. A book about going into and experiencing other stories! Pretty cool concept! Then, after I borrowed this audiobook from my library and started listening to it, I saw a couple of reviews that were not so favourable. I honestly do not understand all the […]

You Have a Match by Emma Lord

The title and cover of this book are a bit misleading, and led me to think this was going to be some kind of romance-centric plot similar to You’ve Got Mail. But I am SO glad I read the blurb, because it’s not just about a summer romance: it’s about a secret sister – a […]
