Recent Reads (5)

Milk and Honey was just fine. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. I was expecting a lot more from it though. I thought it was going to be full of groundbreaking thought and beautiful writing. But instead it just fell flat in most places. I found myself almost cringing or rolling my eyes in some places. It felt very overwrought. And maybe it’s just me, but a single sentence in the middle of a page isn’t poetry. […]

Book Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

Book Review: The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter

I really should remember this experience the next time it takes me six months to read a book. I had so much hope for this book ever since I first heard about it. In fact, it was one of my most anticipated reads for 2016. I had talked it up so much last year and I had planned to get to it then as well. As luck would have it, I wasn’t able to pick it up until last spring. […]

Book Review: Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown

Book Review: Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown

I really hate when a book has so much promise and then it disappoints me in such a big way. This book seemed like it would be a really good one, especially given the fact that technology is something most teens have to deal with every day. Teens also battle peer pressure and that was also a big part of this book. Unfortunately, I found Ashleigh to be a giant pain in the ass. I know teenagers don’t generally have […]

Book Review: The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics

Book Review: The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics

I cannot believe it took me this long to read this book. October was such a perfect month to read it in though because it was creepy as hell. Really good creepiness too, although the creepiness didn’t really kick in until about halfway through. I was disappointed by the first half of the book and very nearly DNFed it. Oh boy, am I glad I stuck it out. This was my first book by Lukavics, but it sure as hell […]

Book Review: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

Book Review: The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

This was my first Nova Ren Suma book, but it will absolutely not be my last. In fact, I’m tempted to go grab my copy of 17 & Gone off my bookshelf right now. I had no idea what to expect with this book, but I went into it, excited and really hoping I’d love it. And holy crap, I loved it. It’s almost the end of October and I feel pretty confident that this book is going to be […]

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

Book Review: Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

By now you all know how much I love my dark contemporaries, but in all honesty, I didn’t expect this one to be as dark as it was. I expected it to be more of a creepy doll story, and it was to some extent, but it was a hell of a lot darker than I expected. I figured out very early on why there were four names in the title. I had my suspicions before I started reading and […]

Book Review: Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

Book Review: Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. I wasn’t sure if I’d love it or hate it. It seemed to have everything I could ever want in a book, including hints of a lesbian romance, but I was still leery of it. Mostly because I am still not hugely into the fantasy genre, but I’ve read some truly great fantasy books lately, so I wanted to give this one a shot. I am so glad I did! It […]
