Review: Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

Review: Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

May 6, 2018 Review 7 ★★★★

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 […]

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 12 ★★★★

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 […]
