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? That it was perfect and wonderful and so so cute? So, bookish confession here: I really liked Simon, but it didn’t completely blow me away. I know, I know. 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 […]

“Weirdly Passionate” | This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills | Review

Review: This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills This Adventure Ends is amazing. There, I got that out of the way. Like First & Then, Emma Mills’ debut, this book continues the author’s ability to articulate teen life in the most deadpan, honest way. Sloane Finch, the MC, is funny, sarcastic, and deeply kind, able to right wrongs, but unable to break herself out of a bubble of not being engaged in things. Sloane and her family have recently relocated permanently to their summer home in a small town in Florida. When she meets the vivacious Vera Fuller and her brother Gabe, […]

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim | Top Ten Tuesday

Hi guys, today I’m chatting about ten books I picked up on a whim. Honestly, nowadays it’s hard for me to find this kind of book because I talk to people about books so much, and I have so many favorite authors…but I definitely still have moments where I find something in a catalogue and I’m really excited. Some of these will go back to pre-blogging days, so this was a bit of a nostalgic post for me…but I think these are still pretty relevant to what catches my eye these days! I’m restricting this to books that I have read […]
