5 Things About I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

5 Things About I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

February 12, 2018 Review 5 ★★★★

Sibling feels I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN deals with a lot of themes in each timeline, but one part that is integral to both is the relationship between siblings. The two siblings that have been through so much, were so close then grew so far apart, and will give you ALL THE FEELS. Their relationship was so real. They fought, […]

5 Things About The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

5 Things About The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

December 3, 2017 Review 20 ★★★½

So different to the movie Having seen the movie first, of course I’m going to be comparing the book to it a lot. While the start was quite similar, and the overall message that everyone has problems and insecurities is the same, the rest of the story was remarkably different. And that’s a good thing! I get into it a […]

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

October 13, 2017 Review 10 ★★

  I usually eat up and enjoy any of Kasie West’s books like candy. The characters tend to have a lot of depth for a short YA romance book, but I can’t say that was true for BY YOUR SIDE. The whole premise of this novel sort of revolves around two very different people getting stuck over the weekend in […]

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: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

June 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this conflicted when trying to review a book. Even as I’m writing this, I’m not sure what I’m going to rate it. There are just so many thoughts about it floating around my head. So this review has turned into more of a discussion style, which I haven’t written in so long. As a side note before […]

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

Review: Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl

May 12, 2017 Review 12 ★★★

ROYCE ROLLS is a novel that stands out against other books in the YA genre. It is definitely unique, and fans of reality television are going to want to check it out. As someone who has a love-hate relationship with dramatic television, I had mixed feelings about this book. The novel starts out in the future and then flashes back, […]
