The Dead Queens Club

In a world where I rarely pick up books for my own reading pleasure – and by that I mean I’m usually so guilt-wracked over my unread ARCs that I have 600 books on my TBR (at least!), I just could not stop thinking about this book. I knew I wanted to read it from […]

Bookish and the Beast (Once Upon a Con #3) by Ashley Poston

So basically my favourite fairy tale taking place in my favourite fake fandom (Starfield) by one of my most recent favourite authors… I just loved everything about this book. It’s the third in a series, so the worldbuilding was already established and didn’t need to be as heavy as the previous two books – though […]

Nobody Knows But You by Anica Mrose Rissi

This novel is told in epistolary style, in the form of letters from one girl to another after the summer camp that changed their lives. Kayla is the main character, and the story is about her tumultuous and instant friendship with Lainie at a summer camp that’s probably not that appropriate to send a bunch […]

One Small Thing by Erin Watt

I really enjoyed this novel. I felt like some of it was over the top, but I didn’t go into a romance about a rebellious girl and the boy who killed her sister expecting realism. For example, Beth’s parents are caricatures of overprotective parents. They desperately want to control everything Beth does including her future, […]

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, […]
