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 […]

Literally by Lucy Keating

In Literally, main character Annabelle finds that an author named Lucy Keating (also the author of the book) is literally writing her life, and fights back. I will use Lucy for the in-book author and Keating for the real-life author. So this book. This book was weird. The author, Lucy Keating, wrote a (clearly) fictionalised […]

ARC review: Book of Living Secrets by Madeleine Roux

I was super interested in reading this book as I was – and still am – going through a phase where I want to read about people who step into stories. The blurb totally drew me in: two contemporary teen girls literally (and literarily)  enter the world of their favourite book, gothic romance Moira, only […]

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Although Addie LaRue is not YA, it definitely has some crossover appeal for older YA readers. It’s basically New Adult, similar in tone to For The Wolf (also an adult fantasy with crossover appeal if you consider New Adult isn’t a ‘real’ category, and that I reviewed on this blog), and that’s why I’ve decided […]

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 […]

Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

This is my fourth Tricia Levenseller book, and I’m hooked. I love that this author can put out books that are different enough to be different, but have enough similarities to be familiar. Like Maria V Snyder! It’s so comforting to be able to trust an author like this. Case in point: across all of […]

Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar

This is another book that for me, was just kind of in the middle. There was nothing particular wrong with it, but it also didn’t sparkle for me. I was initially drawn to this because of its premise: an #ownvoices with Hindu mythology inspired by Stardust by Neil Gaiman, which is both an amazing book […]

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

I don’t know what happened. I was listening to this book, and it was just kind of average, and then all of a sudden it was over and I wanted more. This book is about the audition process for a gender fluid character named Sal, also Auditioner Twenty-Three, to have a shot at becoming the […]
