Mayhem – Review

As if the title alone wasn't enough to lure me in, the first sentence in the description is The Lost Boys meets Wilder Girls and that's it. I was done! As a 90's teen, this book takes everything I used to look up to in the late 80's and lets me bask in its reminiscent [...]

Scorpion

If you've been with me for a while, you are probably familiar with a lovely dystopian novel, Mayfly, that I started screaming about in 2018. I reviewed it for Rockstar Book Tours, Teenreads, and it ended up making my SheReads top YA 2018 reads, it was that amazing! So you bet your stabby little bottoms [...]

The House In The Cerulean Sea

"How can we fight prejudices if we do nothing to change it? If we allow it to fester, what's the point?" It’s official. I will read anything @tjklunebooks writes. ANYTHING!!! This book. THIS BOOK!!! On the cover, @seananmcguire is quoted as saying, “This book is very close to perfect.” And YES!!! I laughed! I cried! Often on the same [...]

Yes, there are ghosts haunting the Torres sisters, but the examination in this story of what it means to be haunted goes [...]

Blast From The Debutante Past

Once again, Rockstar Book Tours is back at it. This time with a surprising time capsule, taking us all the way back to the Roaring 20's. Before we get into the book, we need some definitions. First, let's define swears. Second. Define nice. Then remember that this book was printed 90 years ago, so it [...]

Girls Make Better Kings

"Merlin loved magic, but sometimes it was unmistakably the worst." Once & Future was one of my favorite reads last year. The imagination of putting the legend of King Arthur in space with a diverse set of knights and a girl as King was genius. I loved every single twist and turn and thought the [...]

A Breathtaking Thriller

"Labels come with assumptions. They assume the bad kids are always monsters, and the good ones never are." If one quote can summarize a book so poetically while also holding back so much, it's this one. Read it, and then read it again, and then assume that you're going to make assumptions while reading only [...]
