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 […]

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, […]
