Review: Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

Review: Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

May 6, 2018 Review 8 ★★★★

I actually really liked this one. STAY SWEET is the best type of YA contemporary – it reminds you of all the great things about summer, explores a variety of different relationships, and is just an overall sweet read (you had to have known there was going to be at least one sweet joke here). It reminded me a lot […]

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

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 […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

January 24, 2018 Review 4 ★★★★

After being absent from the book community for awhile due to having Adult Responsibilities, I actually missed out on hearing about a lot of new releases. One I couldn’t possibly miss, due to all the hype, was AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS. Me being all easily swayed and all, I did the only thing I really could do – I went […]

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

January 6, 2018 Review 5 ★★★

When I read THE DIABOLIC I was confident in saying that it really added something unique to the YA genre. THE EMPRESS, however, is on a whole new level. It was a pretty epic book, but it was a book that is going to inspire some mixed feelings, simply because everything you thought you knew will be tested. THE EMPRESS […]

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

December 24, 2017 Review 8 ★★★★

After really enjoying THE UNEXPECTED EVERYTHING (dogs) by Morgan Matson, I wanted to check out her other books. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE had somewhat of a fun, interesting premise as well: Emily’s best friend has disappeared, but she left a list behind full of things to complete. As an introverted person I could definitely relate to Emily and her struggle […]

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

July 16, 2017 Review 16 ★★★

WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI started off well with humor and quirky characters – it’s a fun romance but one that I felt lost its way a little. ¬†When we are first introduced to Dimple and Rishi, they are given unique backstories and personalities that made them stand out and be memorable. They are a little nerdy and have some interesting […]

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

October 31, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

THE DIABOLIC is a fairly brutal YA science fiction novel. Sci fi is a genre that I have always struggled with, but I found THE DIABOLIC to be a fairly easy read to get into, despite overall mixed feelings. The World The world in this novel is pretty complex; there are different religions, classes of people, and government hierarchy. I […]
