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 […]

Phantom Heart by Kelly Creagh

I have many feelings about this book. First of all, I think it did an absolutely wonderful job of telling a tale inspired by Gaston Leroux’s beloved gothic classic, The Phantom of the Opera, better known to many people worldwide by the phenomenal West End musical and lesser known from the gorgeous but not quite […]

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 […]

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, […]

A Constellation of Roses by Miranda Asebedo

I really enjoyed this book. At first I was a bit surprised but delighted at how defensive and prickly the main character Trix was. She had a pretty hard life, and had a lot of defensive reflexes making it difficult for her to love and trust others, even when they were working so hard to […]
