There’s Something About Sweetie, I Wish You All the Best & The Goodbye Summer | Quick Thoughts on New Releases

REVIEW: There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon A really cute diverse love story with a great message. Sweetie Nair is a fat, high school track star who is a fierce feminist. She’s also a dutiful daughter and super into her Indian culture. Sweetie spends most of her time dealing with her mother’s issues with how she should lose weight, but her confidence shines through the years of fat-shaming. Ashish Patel is dealing with heartbreak. After being dumped by his on-and-off college girlfriend Celia, he’s got no mojo left. He’s worried he’ll never gain back his confidence with basketball, girls, […]

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner | Review

Review: Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner Note: I received this advanced reader’s copy free from Indigo Teen for review, but I promise, that in no way influenced my review! Thoughts and opinions are my own.  Quirky trivia-filled humour and perfect teen voices keep Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by King of Tears Jeff Zentner from being too melancholy. Josie and Delia are best friends who are so close that people often mistake them for sisters. Brought together by a mutual friend who moved (Jesmyn from Goodbye Days), Josie has the goal of being on television, while Delia […]

“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, […]

Hey guys, I’m back with Part 2 of my BEA recap – read on for some of my most embarrassing moments ever! BEA Day 3: Galley Drops, Signings, Authors, and Blogger Outings, Oh My! I got to Javits early (and DID NOT take the shuttle bus – see Part 1 of my recap for this experience), and headed straight for the Harper Collins booth to get a ticket for Kiera Cass‘ signing that afternoon, and for the galley drop for Amy Zhang’s Falling Into Place, which was one of my most coveted titles for the fall. The drop also included […]
