Noteworthy by Riley Redgate [Reviews]: A Musical Journey to Self Discovery

Cam's Thoughts: “It wasn’t enlightenment to live like you had no history and no consequences.  The world wasn’t just made out of instants‒it was made out of plans, too, and the ability to learn from your mistakes” I’m a huge fan of cute contemporary YA novels but I don't pick them up very often.  The … Continue reading Noteworthy by Riley Redgate [Reviews]: A Musical Journey to Self Discovery

Marianne's Thoughts: "For as long as I could remember, I had been apologizing for existing, for trying to be who I was, to live the life I was meant to lead."

Mosquitoland by David Arnold [Review]: Messy and Problematic

Having read and fallen in love with David Arnold’s other book, Kids of Appetite, I’ve got to say that reading this book is a huge disappointment. I’m glad this wasn’t the first book I picked up by him because I’m pretty sure it would have been my last. What this book got wrong: The protagonist. … Continue reading Mosquitoland by David Arnold [Review]: Messy and Problematic

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis [Review]: It Didn’t Click With Me; A Small Rant

My Review: “When animals make a stupid mistake, you laugh at them. A cat misjudges a leap. A dog looks overly quizzical about a simple object. These are funny things. But when a person doesn’t understand something, if they miscalculate and hit the brakes too late, blame is assigned. […] We have entire systems in … Continue reading The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis [Review]: It Didn’t Click With Me; A Small Rant

Review: The Sound of Us by Julie Hammerle

I didn't finish this book, not because it was bad, but because it wasn't for me. This book was full of unnecessary high school petty drama, which I don't stand. The book started off with a very impressive promise of musical competition for a limited set of scholarships with our main character being one of … Continue reading Review: The Sound of Us by Julie Hammerle

{Release day} The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman captures all the things I like to find in a book: a good mystery, action, books, and a hint of romance. From the beginning, I connected with the main character, Irene, who's a Librarian. Except her job is much more complicated than how it sounds. She is a spy … Continue reading {Release day} The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

Review: Manga Classics: Emma by Stacy King, Jane Austen, Crystal Chan, & Po Tse

I am an uncultured swine (Pixar's Toy Story) because I haven't read a single one of Jane Austen's books. I have two in physical and the rest in ebook, but I just haven't gotten myself to it. I struggle most of the time with classics because of how heavy the reading might feel, even if … Continue reading Review: Manga Classics: Emma by Stacy King, Jane Austen, Crystal Chan, & Po Tse

Review: Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith

Jennifer E. Smith's book always find something to which your emotions attach onto and grip at it so hard that tears are bound to fall somewhere between reading. As some may know, I started college barely last August and it was only the first of many new experiences I was about to start with blind … Continue reading Review: Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith

Reviews: Love Fortunes and Other Disasters & First Kisses and Other Misfortunes by Kimberly Karalius

My Review: “You could try me out sometime, you know, with the dating thing.” His tone was teasing. “Who knows? We could fall in love.” This story is all kinds of cute! It’s set in a very quirky town where charms and predictions and magic are an every day occurrence. Every year they congregate in … Continue reading Reviews: Love Fortunes and Other Disasters & First Kisses and Other Misfortunes by Kimberly Karalius
