Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

I totally missed the hype train on this (courtesy of being a fringe blogger and not active on social media). Sawkill Girls was a creepy, atmospheric YA horror (didn’t realise that for a while, my bad!) about a literal bogeyman that hunts and devours teenage girls on a lonely island called Sawkill Rock (I think […]

How We Roll by Natasha Friend

How We Roll was a sweet, short little book I read in a few hours in the early hours of the morning one night when I couldn’t sleep. It tells a story of self-acceptance from the point of view of a teen girl with alopecia, and her unlikely but endearing and bumpy friendship with a […]

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

After I read The Cheerleaders, I was pretty certain I’d enjoy other Kara Thomas YA mystery/thrillers, so I quickly found Little Monsters available on audiobook at my local library. I was right. I did enjoy Little Monsters a heck of a lot. Thomas has an awesome ability to realistically plot her mysteries to the point […]

The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas

I was so intrigued to read this book because it hinted that the deaths of 5 girls on the cheerleading team within a few months of each other was suspicious, and for some reason I was super keen to read about this mystery. I’m not normally into contemporary thrillers/mysteries, so I was surprised at how […]

The Forgotten Book by Mechthild Gläser

With a secondary character named Darcy De Winter, who is a rich snobby boy with a sister named Gina and who immediately dislikes our heroine, Emma, you would think that this book has something to do with a Pride and Prejudice retelling, right? Especially since the blurb says “Jane Austen reigns supreme” at the boarding […]

Sorceress (Spellcaster #3) by Claudia Gray

I was lucky enough that this entire series was available on audiobook at my local library (except the novella, which was available as an ebook), and that’s the primary reason I wanted to listen to it. To be able to get through an entire series on audio, well that’s one of my bookworm dreams. So […]

Steadfast (Spellcaster #2) by Claudia Gray

I’ve been really sick – as in bedbound sick – and I don’t really feel like writing a lengthy review for this audiobook, so I’ll keep it brief: For a sequel, it didn’t feel like filler. I felt like every character moved forward, and the plot was original and engaging. I loved watching the relationships […]
