The Gilded Cage by Lynette Noni

I genuinely think it’s harder to write a 5 star review than it is to write a 1 star review. It’s hard to list what a book does so well when it does everything so well. I genuinely had no issues with this book at all and enjoyed every minute of it. This book is […]

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 […]

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

Considering this was published in 2011, I’m surprised this is my first Victoria Schwab novel. What’s even weirder is that I tried so very hard to listen to this on audio but my god the narrator is so bad. She’s basically reading a list with no emotional input whatsoever. I was so frustrated listening that […]

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 […]

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 […]
