Book Review | Pride

I’m pretty picky about the young adult fiction – especially contemporary – that I read. But I could not resist a diverse adaptation of one of my favorite books of all-time: Pride & Prejudice. So I knew I couldn’t stay away from Ibi Zoboi’s Pride, and decided to pick up the audiobook. (All reviews are spoiler-free unless […]

Book Review | The Female of the Species

Have you ever picked up a book on a whim and been completely blown away? That’s exactly what happened to me with Mindy McGinnis’s The Female of the Species. This book had been on my radar for a while, but wasn’t exactly on my immediate TBR list. To be honest, I didn’t know what it was […]

Book Review | The One Memory of Flora Banks

I first heard about this book on YouTube. The premise definitely caught my attention – a seventeen-year-old girl is only able to form a single new memory from the time she is ten. I haven’t read a lot of books about amnesia (and a few of the books I have read have been nonfiction), because, […]

Book Review | Thanks a Lot, John LeClair

Johanna Parkhurst’s sophomore novel, Thanks a Lot, John LeClair, is not something I would typically pick up. When the book’s publicist reached out to me, I almost responded with a “no, thanks”, because I don’t usually like books that are really heavy on sports. But something about it spoke to me, and once I started reading it, […]

Book Review | A Study in Charlotte

I’m kind of a sucker for anything Sherlock. He’s one of my favorite literary characters, and I actually like almost any iteration of him I’ve come across. Sherlock-inspired books are nothing new, but something about Brittany Cavallaro’s young adult debut novel stood out to me, and I picked it up as soon as it hit […]
