ARC Review: The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart by Lauren DeStefano

The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart

A Curious Tale of the In-Between might have been more intense than The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart but The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart won my heart in a way A Curious Tale of the In-Between did not (even though I loved both books).  Lionel is a wild boy. He doesn’t like […]

Blog Tour: Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit

Anna and the Swallow Man

I don’t read a lot of historical fiction but I absolutely adore middle grade novels so when I heard about Anna and the Swallow Man, I knew I was going to have a lot of feels and would probably need a lot of tissues. The book; however, turned out to be not exactly what I […]

Tell the Story to Its End by Simon P. Clark

Tell the story to its end

Tell the Story to Its End is a hauntingly creepy novel that will stay with you long after you have turned the last pages. The mesmerizing writing will keep you flipping pages and the way the story is structured will make you anxious to know more. Most of all though, the main character is going to make […]

ARC Review: Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman

Book Scavenger

This book is basically everything past Rashika would have wanted from a book and one present Rashika adores. The past couple of middle grade novels that I had read were great but there seemed to be something missing. I figured that could have been the result of me not being the intended audience but this  book […]

Say It With Bubbles: Witherwood Reform School by Obert Skye


And Bubbles makes her appearance yet again! I really appreciated the warm and positive feedback her debut received, which inspired me to use Bubbles even more. Witherwood Reform School is a MarchMacmillan title, and I was given the opportunity to read a review copy. Here are my thoughts through Bubbles wit and humor!

ARC Review: Don’t Stay Up Late by R.L. Stine

Don't Stay Up Late

This was my first foray into R.L. Stine’s works and unfortunately, it wasn’t a very successful one. I feel like ‘it’s so bad it’s good’ would be applicable here but at the same time, my biggest problem with the book was not the story itself but the writing style.

ARC Review: The Arctic Code by Matthew J. Kirby

The Arctic Code

The Arctic Code was an interesting book to say the least but I liked the idea of it more than I liked the actual book. This is a book kid me would have loved but it pains me to say this, especially since I am just starting to get back into middle grade, but this book […]

ARC Review: Anyone but Ivy Pocket by Caleb Krisp

Anyone but Ivy Pocket

I am not sure whether this book is absolutely brilliant or a pain in the ass. Ivy Pocket reads a little like Amelia Bedelia (who just happens to be one of my favorite characters ever) and that brings up the question of whether this book was supposed to be a satirical or if we’re actually […]
