Review: We Are The Ants

Have you ever read a book that so pleasantly surprises you that you MUST tell everyone you know (and don’t know) about it? Well this is that book! Being the bookish person that I am I have been known to dabble in few book subscription services, this book came from one of those! Kelly over at Stacked Books and Book Riot curated a few great YA book boxes of which We Are The Ants was […]

Review: Alex, Approximately

  When, I read the synopsis for this novel is was immediately intrigued! I’ve been a big fan of YA romance for awhile and in addition I am rom-com fan that I couldn’t picking this up! While this review is not a complete gush I do feel that it had many redeeming qualities. Let just say that I cannot talk about this book without mention its similarities and differences to another novel I recently reviewed, […]

ARC Review: Geekerella

Thank You Quirk Books and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this novel for review! All thoughts and opinions are COMPLETELY my own! What a cute story! I’m a sucker for a fairytale retellings and it seems they’re plentiful in teen fiction right now. Having the story set around nerd culture really gave it something special! It has all the hallmarks of the traditional Cinderella story–a mean step-mother, two “ugly” stepsisters, a princely love […]

ARC Review: What Girl’s Are Made Of

Thank You Carolrhoda Books and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this novel for review! All thoughts and opinions are COMPLETELY my own! I can’t believe I waited so long to read this! I decided to pick this up from Netgalley after I saw Kelly over at Stacked Books mention it a while back. Dark, gritty and incredibly impactful it was an amazing read. I will admit that not every one will like this […]

I am so glad that I was able to pick up a copy of this from Netgalley after reading a mini review on Goodreads! This […]

Review: Where’d You Go, Bernadette

I’ve been meaning to read this book for sometime so when I received it as a Christmas gift from a book exchange in December I couldn’t put it off any further! On the surface Where’d You Go Bernadette is a story of a family mourning the loss of a matriarch, but it quickly becomes much, much more.  Bernadette is an agoraphobe. She very rarely leaves her home and only to pick up her precocious but […]

Review: The Storied Life of AJ Fikry

  Reasons to Read After discovering Booktube a few years ago I found that many channels were recommending this book as a “must read” for book lovers. I had read a YA fiction novel by Zevin a couple of years ago which was okay but certainly not my favorite so I was hesitant to pick this up or to add it to any of my monthly tbr’s. All I can say now is you have […]
