Book Review: American Panda by Gloria Chao

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: Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley

Book Review: Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley

I cannot believe it took me this long to read this beautiful book. Especially when I’ve enjoyed all the books I’ve read by her so far. In some ways, this is my favorite book of hers. It’s a book I wish I had had when I was younger and still trying to be okay with being bisexual. Aki was so comfortable with it and that made me both happy and incredibly jealous (stupid I know) Happy because I was really […]

Book Review: The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

Oh my goodness, I don’t even know how I am going to put into words the amazing-ness of this book. It was pure Emery Lord. I honestly don’t think she can write a bad book. Each of her books have held something different and this one was no different or any less special. In fact, in some ways this one might have been the most special of all of her books. By now most you probably know that I’m am […]

Book Review: The Lost & Found by Katrina Leno

Book Review: The Lost & Found by Katrina Leno

Oh man, I am kicking myself so hard for not reading this book a lot sooner. Like last February when I got it. I think I had a lot of expectations for it because of how much I loved Leno’s debut, The Half Life of Molly Pierce. I was a bit apprehensive because road trip books have been a bit of a hit or miss for me. What I wasn’t expecting was how much I LOVED the characters. Frannie has […]

Book Review: Secrets, Lies and Scandals by Amanda K. Morgan

Book Review: Secrets, Lies and Scandals by Amanda K. Morgan

This book was pitched as How to Get Away With Murder meets I Know What You Did Last Summer and given how much I LOVE How to Get Away With Murder, I was fully expecting to enjoy this book, but that was not the case. I found myself annoyed, frustrated and overall just really disappointed. This book could have been so much more than it actually was. In a book like this, I tend to focus on the characters and […]
