Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Book Review: Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

Holy crap on a cracker you guys! This book was insane, but in the best possible way. It pretty much left me for dead. In some ways, this book was even crazier than Weingarten’s previous book, Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls and I didn’t even know that was possible. Sasha was a character that I struggled to connect to. I don’t need to like the characters in a book, and generally in a book like this that doesn’t happen. Generally, […]

This book was one of the first YA books I read when I first started blogging and I fell head over heels in love with it. It was so good, well worth a reread (I should do that soon) and it is still one of those books that I think about, […]

Book Review: Frostblood by Elly Blake

Book Review: Frostblood by Elly Blake

Oh my goodness you guys! This book was so freaking good and it was a giant surprise to me how much I actually enjoyed it. Fantasy is not normally my thing, so I was worried that I’d hate it. From the very beginning, I was drawn into Ruby’s world and the world of the feuding Firebloods & Frostbloods. I cannot believe it took me this long to read the book. Ruby was awesome as a main character. She was tough, […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books We Couldn’t Get Through

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Boos We Couldn’t Get Through alexia’s picks 1. The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski. I wanted to love this book, but it was incredibly slow and the writing really was bugging me. I could not connect to the characters at all. It was a book that should have held my interest, but didn’t. 2. The Rattled Bones by S. M. Parker. Ugh, I could not stand the […]

ARC August Wrap Up

ARC August Wrap Up

Okay, this month did not go nearly as well as I planned. I had nine books on my original TBR and then I added three more after the post went up. I only read a third of the 12 books. So frustrating, but on the other side, August was the best reading month I’d had in MONTHS, so it wasn’t a total waste. Books Finished: The Secret History of Us, This Is How It Happened, Caraval, Frostblood. Books DNFed: The […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hidden Gems in Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hidden Gems in Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic is hidden gems in historical fiction bekka’s picks 1. And I Darken by Kiersten White. I don’t know that this is necessarily “hidden” but it’s definitely a gem that deserves 100% more hype than it receives. I think maybe people just don’t know what it is? It’s an alternate history in which Vlad the Impaler is a girl. There are queer characters in abundance, angsty romance, […]
