Amish Guys Don’t Call Review// The One Where I Discover Amish Guys Are Not My Type

  Amish Guys Don’t Call is a bizarre book. Probably the weirdest I’ll read all year. There’s not a single aspect of the story that meshes with conventional YA, something that would normally be a good thing. I love books that challenge conventions, and aren’t afraid to strike out on their own accord. Unfortunately, Amish… Continue reading Amish Guys Don’t Call Review// The One Where I Discover Amish Guys Are Not My Type

Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen Review // The Book That Left Me Pessimistic (But Not Really)

The best word to describe Susin Nielsen’s Optimists Die First is cute. Largely inconsequential and borrowing from many past contemporaries, but so earnest in its attempt to bring a smile to readers faces. And this short, sweet story definitely does that. Nielsen shows off her affinity for cats and crafting in spades (two things I… Continue reading Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen Review // The Book That Left Me Pessimistic (But Not Really)

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli Review//The One Where I Realize Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Was Not a Fluke

After giving both Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and The Upside of Unrequited a shot, I have safely come to two conclusions: 1. Becky Albertalli books are not for me and 2. I absolutely understand why people love them. Which is a weird feeling for me, because usually when I give a book two… Continue reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli Review//The One Where I Realize Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Was Not a Fluke

Review: Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson // The One Where I Give My First Five Star Rating of 2017

Summary in a Nutshell… Mary B. Addison killed a baby. Allegedly. She didn’t say much in that first interview with detectives, and the media filled in the only blanks that mattered: A white baby had died while under the care of a churchgoing black woman and her nine-year-old daughter. The public convicted Mary and the… Continue reading Review: Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson // The One Where I Give My First Five Star Rating of 2017

Finally! A Mystery That Is Absolutely Nothing Like Gone Girl…A Beautiful Broken Girls Review

Short & Skinny Review Beautiful Broken Girls is one of the hardest books I’ve had to rate in a long time. Though my assessment of it on Goodreads may show a lackluster 3 stars, know it actually falls much closer to a 3.5. The story is gripping (I easily sped through it in two days),… Continue reading Finally! A Mystery That Is Absolutely Nothing Like Gone Girl…A Beautiful Broken Girls Review
