5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 24 ★★★★

It didn’t break my emotions After ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES I was kind of terrified to read this. That book broke me and had me sobbing at some ungodly late hour (FINCH FEELS). HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE doesn’t pack anywhere near as painful a punch. It is a much more positive, uplifting novel with less pain and angst. Another important […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

So easy to keep the pages turning and lose yourself for hours. Every character is interesting Some of the characters surprised me and had a […]

5 Things About A Gathering of Shadows by Victoria Schwab

April 18, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★½

WHAT WAS THAT ENDING. Talk about a cliffhanger! I didn’t think the wait could get any worse but now I’ll be carving the days left until the next book into my wall. (Not really.) Clearly, I cannot wait for the next book. (Plus technically, I don’t fully own these walls.) I do have to say it’s a cliffhanger that excites […]

5 Things About Rev Girl by Leigh Hutton

5 Things About Rev Girl by Leigh Hutton

February 16, 2016 Review 26 ★★★½

Girl’s kicking ass in extreme sports Girls competing in extreme sports is something I only just realised I haven’t really read before, aside from books I got into way back at the start of high school (and they were mainly jockeys and other horse books). REV GIRL showed the glorious, the messy, and the competitive sides of dirt bike racing, […]
