Where have we been? (Alise says goodbye for now)

June 30, 2018 Uncategorized 9

(Note: since both of us have pieces to say in this post, Bec = normal text, Alise = italics & purple) This post feels a lot like deja vu. Another “we’ve been gone so long, what happened?!” message that I feel I’ve been repeating a lot lately. And by lately I mean a while ago because it’s been over a month […]

5 Things About Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier

5 Things About Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier

May 26, 2018 Review 10 ★★★★★

 HELL YEAH SURPRISE 5 STAR The best 5 star reads are the ones that take you by surprise. I don’t know why I expected to have mixed feelings on this, I hadn’t even seen any reviews for it. It’s a real diamond in the rough. Great characters, a quest, side plot romance that doesn’t take over the plot, and a […]

It reminded me a lot […]

3 Things About Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

April 23, 2018 Review 6 ★★★½

An amazing cast of characters Hands down, the strongest aspect of EMERGENCY CONTACT was the characters. Sam and Penny felt like friends I have known in real life, with genuine emotions and quirks and problems that are easy to relate to. Even the side characters stood out and were strong characters on their own. The “emergency contact” texting aspect was […]

5 Things about Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

April 20, 2018 Review 10 ★★★★★

This is a hard review to write There is no way this review is in any way objective and unbiased because I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I read it in two sittings. It would have been one if I didn’t have to sleep. SKY IN THE DEEP was just the perfect light(er) read for me (though when I say light, […]
