Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

July 16, 2016 Review 17 ★★★½

“Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.” It’s Been A Long Time Coming […]

Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

March 12, 2016 Review 32 ★★★

After reading and enjoying PASSENGER and reading and disliking INTO THE DIM, my patience with time travel books was wearing thin. Luckily, THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE brought in a few new aspects that held my interest. Given a map, Nix and her father can sail to any place at any time. However, not a lot of traveling actually happens in the plot. Nix’s father is obsessed with obtaining the one map that will reunite him with his lost love, and much of the book focuses on him in Honolulu trying to find this map. Read more »

Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

July 22, 2015 Review 77 ★★½

If I were being generous, I would probably give this book 1.5 stars on its own. It’s that ending that made me bump it up a star.  WE WERE LIARS is a story about…summer? Youth? Lies? Guilt? I’m honestly still not sure. “Do not accept an evil you can change.” The only real lie in WE WERE LIARS is that […]

June 28, 2015 Review 20 ★★★★

If I ever want something light and fluffy and filled with feels to read to pass the time, I know to turn to a Katie McGarry book. Her latest novel was no exception to the rule. NOWHERE BUT HERE was an addictive read with more than just romance to keep me entertained in between exam study. Read more »

Review: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Review: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

March 2, 2015 Review 32 ★★★★½

It’s not often a contemporary book like THE START OF ME AND YOU comes along. It made me laugh out loud and want to gross sob (sometimes simultaneously). This book has heart. While it has elements most YA contemporary books do: being cute, humorous, and fun, it also deals with grief and loss, finding oneself, and learning to move on. […]

Review: The First Third by Will Kostakis

Review: The First Third by Will Kostakis

January 18, 2015 Review 30 ★★★

One of the things I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time is read more Australian fiction. Not just books written by Aussies, but books set in the country I’ve grown up in. THE FIRST THIRD is the first book with an Aussie setting I’ve read in a very long time. It’s set in Sydney with a brief stop in Melbourne, two cities I’ve only briefly spent time in, but it was familiar none the less. The sayings and character’s personalities and stuff all felt so familiar. Read more »
