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: 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. […]

Book Review: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone

Book Review: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone

I don’t even know where to start with this because You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone tackled a whole lot and did everything correctly. I loved every piece of this, from the family to the romance to the mental illness. Everything was just spot on. I think to make it easier on myself, I may break this down into categories. The Jewish Representation. I love seeing representation of faith in YA. It’s something I feel YA is deeply lacking, and […]

Book Review: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Book Review: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon

This book had the distinction being the first 2018 release that I read and so I had a lot of hopes pinned on it. It looked like something I was going to love and I couldn’t wait to read it. It wasn’t on my initial September TBR, but I picked it up on a whim in the early part of September. Sisters + genetic disease + Jewish culture? Yes please! I had been wanting to read more books that feature […]

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, […]

Book Review: Such a Good Girl by Amanda K. Morgan

Book Review: Such a Good Girl by Amanda K. Morgan

This was SO good! I went into it knowing as little as possible – there is a student-teacher romance and a twist – and I totally recommend doing the same. So I’ll do my best to avoid plot things while telling you all the ways this was such an awesome thriller that you absolutely need to read. First of all, I loved Riley. She’s a type A overachiever, but turned up to an 11. She works really, really hard at […]
