Book Review | Wilder Girls

This summer I went to a book event with Casey McQuiston and Taylor Jenkins Reid (yes, it was totally awesome). I love both of their books so much. So when TJR asked Casey what book she’d recently read and loved, I knew I needed to read that book. Her answer: Wilder Girls by Rory Power. […]

Book Review | Neverworld Wake

Something weird happened. For once, they hype actually enticed me to read a book instead of making me want to read it less (or at least put it off until the hype died down). And despite the fact I already own two unread Marisha Pessl books, I decided to pick up Neverworld Wake because everyone has been […]

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 | Grace and Fury

It’s been a while since I’ve read a young adult book. And even longer since I read one that I liked. But, for some reason, Tracy Banghart’s Grace and Fury caught my eye, and I decided to give it a try. (All reviews are spoiler-free unless otherwise noted.) Synopsis (From Goodreads) In a world where women […]

Book Review | These Shallow Graves

I had been on the fence about These Shallow Graves for a while because it looked interesting, but it’s gotten fairly mixed reviews. Fortunately, I decided to pick it up anyway because I have been obsessed with dark historical YA lately (and it was $3 on Book Outlet). This book really surprised me, and it was […]

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 | On the Spectrum

I was intrigued by On the Spectrum as soon as I read the synopsis. I mean, it’s set in Paris, which is always fun, but I liked that it deals with both eating disorders and autism. I love when young adult books deal with tough issues well, and this one certainly did. (All reviews are spoiler-free […]

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 | How to Make a Wish

It’s been a while since I picked up a contemporary young adult novel, and I’ve been meaning to check out some of the incredibly diverse books that have been flooding that genre. I particularly want to explore more books about female/female relationships, because I haven’t read very many books that fit into that category. Ashley Herring […]

Book Review | The Inexplicable Logic of My Life

I’m going to be honest with you: I’ve been sitting at my computer for over an hour, just staring at a finished review trying to write this intro. And it’s late, and I’m tired, and this review is pretty long, so I’m just going to get into it. (The review’s the important part anyway, right?) […]
