Book Review: American Panda by Gloria Chao

Book Review: American Panda by Gloria Chao

I had extremely high expectations for American Panda and I was so afraid that it wouldn’t measure up to my expectations. There aren’t nearly enough books with Taiwanese main characters and I am always wanting more of them. I don’t know a whole lot about the Taiwanese culture, but I was very excited to learn more about it. Oh. My. God. This book was absolute perfection and I even tweeted at the author to tell her that right after I […]

Book Review: Antisocial by Jillian Blake

Book Review: Antisocial by Jillian Blake

I’m gonna be honest here, guys. I wasn’t really expecting much from this book. I was in love with the cover, and in fact, that was one of the things that first drew me to this book. I was also worried this book would read too young for me. I’ve been out of high school for nearly 14 years and the internet was still young and Facebook & Twitter and all those other social media sites didn’t exist. But oh […]

Book Review: Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake

Book Review: Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake

Generally when I put a book down and then don’t pick it back up again for over a year, I just decide not to finish it. But seeing as I’ve read & adored Blake’s most recent two books, I knew I had to read her debut. And boy, I’d read this woman’s grocery list. I am not much of a middle grade book reader, but after reading all three of her YA books, I’m seriously considering reading her MG books. […]

Book Review: How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake

Book Review: How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake

I don’t know why it took me so long to read this book. Ugh, it was so good and I gobbled it up once I actually got to read it. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to relate to it due to the complex mother/daughter relationship and the frequent moves Grace & her mother are forced to make. But then we meet Eva. And things magically changed, and my fears were shown to be unfounded. My heart absolutely […]

Book Review: This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

Book Review: This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

I hate it so much when an author who has wowed me in the past fails to do it later on. It’s such a heartbreaking letdown. It just breaks my heart to have to give this book a negative review. I was so excited for this book, and since I’ve been on a contemporary kick these last few weeks, I decided to pick it up last week. I had recently read another book where the main character was similar to […]

Book Review: American Panda by Gloria Chao

I’m struggling with what to write about American Panda because I’m just so blown away. It’s so hard to write 5-star reviews, isn’t it? It’s easy to point out negatives in a book, I think, but when everything comes together–the characters, the writing, the themes, everything–it makes it so hard to concisely explain why you loved it so much. That’s what’s happening to me right now with this book. American Panda brought out the full range of emotions in me. […]
