Pivot Point by Kasie West

I have a problem with the fundamental plot of this book. In this book, Addie can take a peek into two futures based on decisions she might make at any one point. It’s called Searching and is a rare paranormal gift in her paranormal community. It literally benefits and affects no one but her. She […]

Don’t Say a Word (Hometown Antihero #2) by Amber Lynn Natusch

The sequel to Dare You to Lie delivers more of the same high-action tee investigator thrilling mysteries as its predecessor, with our resident badass Kylene Danners also embroiled in a fake dating trope while she works with rookie undercover FBI agent Dawson to bring down an underage sex ring involving students (and possibly teachers!) at […]

The Twin by Natasha Preston

Time for a blurb decontruction! That is NOT the book I was promised. Iris didn’t spend the first few weeks in almost total silence, only speaking to Ivy. She jumped right in with the cheerleader crowd and befriending Ivy’s friends. She was a total social butterfly. Ivy absolutely did not promise Iris that they could […]

Dare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch

This book was about 1 girl and about a hundred dudes. The male/female ratio of this book was way off. The main character was female, and she had literally 1 female friend. Everyone else in this novel, except for a victim of domestic abuse and a ‘cool aunt’ archetype, was male. Literally every single one. […]

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

Please note that this review spoils both the book and the 2020 Disney film adaptation. I have always loved this book. I first read it in high school after I discovered it was written by the same author who wrote White Fang. Now, keep in mind I was at school over the millennium, so this […]

What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

This was a great little book, mostly because of how effectively the audience is immersed into the point of view of a love-struck fifteen year old girl finding her place in the world, who doesn’t really understand everything that is going on because the world of adults is confusing. I’m not normally drawn to war […]

The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline

There’s not a lot for me to say about this book for two reasons: One is that I DNF’d it at 35%, and two, I DNF’d it at 35% because NOTHING HAPPENED. I normally hate saying that nothing happened in a book because something always does, but seriously, all that had happened one entire third […]

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 King of Crows (The Diviners #4) by Libba Bray

This series is absolutely outstanding. There is everything to love about it: it’s got an amazing diverse cast of characters I just can’t help but love, the worldbuilding is immersive and influential (I seriously start talking like the characters while I’m listening to the audiobook), the plots are slow and steady enough to draw you […]

Red Hood by Elana K Arnold

When you first received this book for review, you were a little uncertain. Would it be as awesome as Damsel? Could a strange, unearthly, almost-retelling of Little Red Riding Hood ever live up to your admittedly high expectations? You almost psyched yourself out and didn’t request it, after all. But once you opened it and […]
