5-Star Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli The Upside of Unrequited is my favorite read of 2017 so far. You know how all the rest of you felt about Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda?

I loved Simon and Blue, and it was really fun. But it wasn’t like, completely and totally my book. This book, though. The Upside of Unrequited is MY Simon Vs. For me, it was utterly […]

Wanderlost by Jen Malone | Review

Review: Wanderlost by Jen Malone You guys. Wanderlost by Jen Malone is this summer’s perfect beach read. You know the one I’m talking about. The book that has you racing through from page one, whipping through as fast as you can, falling so hard and fast for the heroine, the journey, THE BOY. The book that takes you on an adventure so compelling that you don’t notice that the sun is setting until your mom shakes your arm and tells you it’s time to go. The book that you read in the car going home and long into the night […]
