All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

I honestly don’t even know what to say. This book. Wow. I had such high expectations for this. I was prepared for a groundbreaking, Earth-shattering, (at the very least enjoyable) read. What I got? More uncomfortable that I ever wanted to be. You know how some books broach difficult subject matter that makes you feel… Read More »

The Bone Sparrow Review

The Bone Sparrow Review

This review is spoiler free I was walking through Waterstones and came across a book called The Bone Sparrow. I had never heard about it before, but when I read the synopsis on the back of the book, I was sold. This book is about a young boy named Subhi who is born in an Australia… Read More »

The Sun Is Also A Star Review

The Sun Is Also A Star Review

I held off on reading this book for so long. I have seen it EVERYWHERE and it seems like everyone who reads it falls madly in love. I was afraid of the hype. What if this fantastic-awesome-life changing book falls flat for me? I now can look back and see how utterly absurd that was…. Read More »

You Will Know Me Review

You Will Know Me Review

Going for the gold means not letting a little thing like murder slow you down. In Abbot’s world, the parents are sometimes more immature than the children, underhanded comments abound, and there are some pretty shady parent meetings. You Will Know Me was such an interesting read! The world of gymnastics is pretty cut-throat, and… Read More »

The Art Of Being Normal Review

The Art Of Being Normal Review

The Art Of Being Normal was the last book I read in 2016 and I was definitely not disappointed. This is the first book I read with a transgender character and I am so glad I chose to read this. Something I love about reading is that a book can teach you so incredibly much. I… Read More »

A Book Everyone Should Read

A Book Everyone Should Read

Something in Between is a Contemporary and it really fits into what has been going on in the United States lately. It is a lot different from what I typically read but I still really enjoyed it! It really makes you stop and think, I applaud Melissa De La Cruz for writing about this important… Read More »

Going Vintage DNF Review

Going Vintage DNF Review

For something different I randomly picked up Going Vintage. It sounded cute, fluffy, and unique! Basically you have this: girl falls in love with boy, boy “kinda” cheats with the help of technology, and girl swears off technology.  I ended up reading about 65% of it before giving up on it. I think If I… Read More »

South of Sunshine Review

South of Sunshine Review

South of Sunshine is set in Tennessee so I was definitely excited to read this book when I saw it. This book is about coming out of the closet while living in the south since it is pretty much unacceptable being gay (or just different honestly) in the south. I will say I think this book conveys… Read More »

Review: The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet

Review: The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet

I adored The Lizzie Bennet Diaries webseries! The writers did so many things right in how it was adapted but one of the things I really appreciate about it is how it made me come to care about and even like Lydia Bennet. In every other adaption of Pride and Prejudice I’ve watched, I have… Read More »

Paperweight by Meg Haston

Paperweight by Meg Haston

I have to admit that I didn’t like Stevie at first. She was rude and caustic. She was rude to everyone else. They didn’t deserve that. Not at all. There was no reason to be angry at the other girls. Or even Anna the Shrink. They are just trying to help. As the story continued,… Read More »
