The You I've Never Known by Ellen Hopkins

Review: The You I’ve Never Known by Ellen Hopkins

I’ve read many of Ellen Hopkin’s over the years and I’ve enjoyed almost all of them. Hopkins’ writing style is so unique and unlike what you usually see when reading YA fiction, and that’s because Ellen writes her YA books mostly in verse. I love this.

Review: Fallout by Ellen Hopkins

Fallout is told from … Continue reading Review: Fallout by Ellen Hopkins

Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins

My Review This book is dark, scary, and very, very disturbing, but all that is hidden in beautiful words and a story that is so gripping that it makes it worth reading. If you prefer happy books with cute characters that have bubbly personalities and their biggest problem in life is who they’re going to date, then this book probably isn’t for you. However, if … Continue reading Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins
