I began to read this book at around 2AM, seeing as I had it as an eARC and didn't want to sleep. Word of advice: if you don't want to sleep, pick up this book! I was hypnotized from the very first sentence "I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club, and I'm wondering how mermaids … Continue reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli [Review]
Marianne's Review: Sanctuary was just the book I needed to read to get out of a massive book slump. Liz as a protagonist is a dream come true: badass black attorney in a male-dominated company. Liz knows she has to hold her own and she does so spectacularly. I love how she has this “take … Continue reading Sanctuary: Rebekah Weatherspoon Does It Again!

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.
TSIYS has a great premise, however its execution leaves a lot to be desired. Instead of being a murder/thriller type book, what I found it to be was a contemporary romance novel with a murder thrown in at certain moments. It’s like the book would forget it was supposed to be about a killer being … Continue reading There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins: Promised a Spark but Delivered a Fizzle
