5 Contemporary Novels That Scream Summer

5 Contemporary Novels That Scream Summer

Summer is in full swing now (unless you live in the southern hemisphere in which case you are probably bundled up in blankets and I am sorry for teasing you with summer-y books) so I thought it would be approriate to do some summer recommendations. I have read all the books I’ll be featuring and […]

ARC Review: How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather

Math_9780553539479_jkt_all_r1.indd

I have always been morbidly fascinated by the Salem Witch Trials so when I came across this book, I was instantly drawn to it. I think a lot of things about this book seem a little far fetched but reading the author’s note did help me understand a little about some of the decisions that […]

ARC Review: Mirage by Tracy Clark

Mirage

My feelings about this book are complicated because while I thoroughly enjoyed it, Mirage walks a thin line between dealing with mental health and being a thriller and the two don’t overlap in a way which allows both things to be explored and established completely. What the book does do well is teenagers. Teens who […]

ARC Review: Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies by Lindsay Ribar

Review for (1)

Isn’t the title of this book just great? It’s even awesomer when the author drops it into some of the conversations in the book. But really, this book is amazing. It seems like it would either be full of dark humor or fluff and while it has both, Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies is surprisingly dark […]

ARC Review: You Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour

ARC Review: My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows

My Lady Jane

Some of you might know that The Princess Bride is one of my favorite novels in the scope of reality and others might not. Well now you do. I’ve had My Lady Jane on my TBR since it was first announced. I saw the 3 wonderful authors who had decided to get together to write […]

[Blog Tour] Review: A Totally Awkward Love Story by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison

A totally awkward love story

Reasons you need this book 1. It is FUCKING HILARIOUS. It’s also just got a very different sense of humor found in American YA novels. The straight-forward, British humor made me LOL a lot. Also British humor in general is pretty great. Lots of LOLs to be had.  2. It is Sex-positive. It isn’t just […]

ARC Review: Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes

Girl Against the Universe

Girl Against the Universe is a clear indication of how much Paula Stokes has grown as an author since The Art of Lainey came out. I really liked The Art of Lainey and I loved Liars, Inc but Girl Against the Universe was a phenomenal novel and one I am proud to claim as a favorite […]
