I got to read the new and expanded version of this poetry collection so my opinion may be a bit biased. Even though I'm a huge fan of novels and long series, sometimes you just want to dive into your feelings and read something that won't work up your fictional motors. Poetry is cathartic for … Continue reading The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson: Raw, Potent and Enlightening.

I wanted to love this a lot more than I actually did. It started out strong but the story got a bit mixed up in the middle and it was all around difficult for me to feel attached to any of the characters. I did enjoy that it was a retelling of the Little Mermaid … Continue reading Walking on Knives by Maya Chabbra: Mini ARC Review!
The First Rule of Punk is a fun middle grade book about a Mexican-American girl who whose mother has relocated them to Chicago for a new job.
