Choose the Next YA Book I Read!

Okay, I’m probably going to regret this, but I’m doing it anyway. I’ve been staring at my TBR piles for forever, and realized I have quite a few young adult books sitting in those piles. And, out of the twenty-two books I’ve read this year, I’ve only read one YA book, and I loved it! […]

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 | 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.

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 […]
