Mini-Reviews: Wires and Nerve, Lessons in Falling, Romeo and What’s Her Name, The Inside of Out

What a delight to finally get a story from Iko’s perspective. I really enjoyed Wires and Nerve, Vol 1, the first installment of Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles graphic novel series. Even though it’s the first book in the series, I would not recommend reading these without reading the Lunar Chronicles books. You won’t have the emotional attachment or the backstory needed to get into this graphic novel. That said, if you’ve read Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter, you will really enjoy this extra story. Set between the end of Winter and the final story in Stars Above, Iko takes […]

2016 Books I Meant To Read Last Year | Top Ten Tuesday

2016 Books I Meant To Read Last Year | Top Ten Tuesday

I’m a little embarrassed about the number of 2016 books I meant to read last year but just didn’t get to. Especially the ones that are solicited ARCs. 😳 In other words, this is my guilty list. Or my naughty list. 2016 Books I Meant To Read Last Year, But I’m Making a Priority in 2017: The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder. Super cute romance and Canadian and on all my friends’ best-of lists. Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. Super cute epistolary romance. And I meant to read it with people! Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake. This […]

Waiting on Wednesday: The Inside of Out by Jenn Marie Thorne

Waiting on Wednesday: The Inside of Out by Jenn Marie Thorne

I first read Jenn Marie Thorne’s excellent debut, The Wrong Side of Right, in August, and it’s one of the best YA books I’ve read that deals with politics (I haven’t reviewed it yet – will get to it, promise!). Jenn’s writing is quietly impactful and insightful – I feel like The Wrong Side of Right is one of those books that flew under the radar a bit and shouldn’t have. So I’m really excited to see a companion, of sorts, set in the same world as Jenn’s first novel, and dealing with some of the same media pressures, but […]

#TopTenTuesday: Can’t-Wait-For-It Sophomore Novels

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is debut authors whose sophomore novels I’m super looking forward to. Because YA publishing moves so fast, with authors releasing their sophomore novels 1-2 years after the debut, I could only get to eight authors, and they’re all from 2015! That said, these are definitely my favourite debuts of this year. Check it out: I’m Waiting Sophomore Novels From These Debut Authors: David Arnold (Mosquitoland) – Mosquitoland is on my list of favourites for 2015 – brilliant, unusual, quirky..I am DESPERATE for Kids of Appetite, David’s 2016 release. Nicola Yoon (Everything, Everything) – I was amazed […]
