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

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. However, this time around, I just couldn’t really love this book or its characters. The Plot ♥ Ariel is used … Continue reading Review: The You I’ve Never Known by Ellen Hopkins

Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The Hate U Give is such a powerful and emotional book. It’s nearly impossible to express just how much this book made me feel.

But at the same time, she incorporates so many … Continue reading Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Hola! I found Before I Go to Sleep to be quite intriguing. I knew the experience would be different, with it being the first adult novel I’ve ever read.

I won’t go as far as to say that it was amazing, but I definitely did enjoy … Continue reading Review: Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Saint Anything

Review: Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

Every time I find out Sarah Dessen is releasing a new book I freak out and get super excited… but of course these announcements are always wayyy too early and by the time the book is released I forget because clearly my memory is a mess. If you guys remember the giveaway we hosted a few weeks ago, the winner, Anjanette, choose Saint Anything as the … Continue reading Review: Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Ask the Passengers is funny and honest, and it is an experience I will never forget. While it doesn’t exactly tackle anything new, the style and voice of A.S. King is unique and perfect. Add that to her ability to weave in a bit of magic and it’s hard to doubt that Ask the Passengers is anything but original. Astrid Jones is struggling. Her family… … Continue reading Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
