What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

WOW. OKAY. THIS BOOK IS MAKING ME WANT TO SCREAM. In mostly good ways (and some frustrating ways). What if this book is so funny, with witty dialogue and hilarious narration, that I kept CACKLING in quiet, public spaces, like at work or on car rides so people start to stare? What if I kept laughing so much while reading with my boyfriend that at … Continue reading What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (book cover)

Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

This book addresses death and the loss of a parent. That said, I can assure you that Second Chance Summer is not about death. It’s about living, coping, and embracing the people in your life while you can. Morgan Matson handles the topic of death and loss in a way that doesn’t oversimplify, generalize, or minimize the experience. She just seems to get it and write … Continue reading Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

The main themes in the book are friendship (especially like in Since You’ve Been Gone!) and learning to be happy with life instead … Continue reading Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Since You’ve Been Gone is SO FREAKING CUTE! Honestly, this book is a perfect summer read!

Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe

My Review ♥ I didn’t expect to like A List of Cages quite as much as I did, but I really enjoyed it and all the emotions it induced. Adam and Julian have the kind of mentor/friend relationship that most people long for. Adam is a senior in high school who takes Julian, a quiet fourteen year old, under his wing. Adam was previously partnered … Continue reading Review: A List of Cages by Robin Roe
