Book Review: The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie

Book Review: The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie

This was so much fun and so unique. I’ve never read another book like it before and I’m so happy it exists. It had a few flaws that kept it from reaching a higher rating for me, but it’s still so entertaining and a book I’ll keep in mind for rereading when I’m feeling down. First of all: SEA MONSTERS. The Abyss Surrounds Us is about SEA MONSTERS and a girl who commands them. How amazingly bad ass is that? […]

Book Review: We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Book Review: We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

I’ve been sitting here staring at this blank screen for a while now. I’m not exactly sure how I’m supposed to review this. How do I put into words all the grief and heartache and fear and frustration this book brought out in me? I loved every second of it, but it ripped me apart and did not have the decency to put me back together. Nina LaCour just did an amazing job. As someone who has never lost someone […]

Book Review: Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers

Book Review: Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers

I don’t know HOW Summers does it. She’s got some crazy magic in both her hands and her brain. I read All the Rage in 2015 and was totally engrossed in it. I then decided to pick up a few more of Summers’ books. It’s taken about a year for me to FINALLY read a second one of her books and I do have to say that this book was overall stronger than All the Rage. Normally, I find that […]

Book Review: When We Collided by Emery Lord

Book Review: When We Collided by Emery Lord

Oh my gosh you guys, this book is probably my favorite book of Emery Lord’s. It was beautifully written, raw and un-apologetically honest. I don’t know much about Bipolar Disorder, but this book seemed to stay true to the difficult parts of the disorder. The majority of people I’ve talked to have said this book was very similar to what they have experienced. I didn’t think I was going to like Jonah to be totally honest. Not only because of […]

Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Say hello to what I’m sure is going to end up being my biggest surprise read of 2016. I had absolutely no hopes going in to Six of Crows because as you may know, I hated the Grisha trilogy. Haaate hate double hate. But I bought this anyway because oooh shiny and pretty black pages and peer pressure. So it was sitting on my shelf long enough for the sequel to come out and I decided to hell with it, […]

Book Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

Book Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

Yet another contemporary thriller cuts through my awful reading slump. I was hooked into With Malice from the jump. Something about Jill’s easy voice and the Amanda Knox vibes of the plot just kept me turning the pages when no other book has been able to do that for two months. So even though it wasn’t perfect, this book gets huge props from me. The story is consuming and easily-consumed. The first thing that really stood out to me as […]

Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I haven’t finished a book since mid-July, not counting one comic that I read toward the end of that month. To say the reading slump is epic would be an understatement. Which is why I’m saying that it’s sort of a miracle that I finished this book. Not that it was bad or boring, because it wasn’t at all, but because I just don’t finish books anymore. But I’m so happy I picked up The Girl on the Train after […]
