Hey there, lovely people! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Sorry about that- I’ve been going through some tough times with finishing school and the whole COVID crisis (America has not been handling it well). But that’s not why we’re here. We’re here for a new book review! This week is a two-parter because I… Read More Carry On
James Patterson presents Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy.
I’ve read one of the books James Patterson presented before (96 Words for Love) before, and I wasn’t the biggest fan of that one. Read on to see if I liked Once and Future any better.… Read More Once & Future
Alrighty, lovely people. I don’t… I honestly don’t know what to say as an intro. It’s Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James. It has a really cool cover, which is why I bought it, but I have never before so strongly recommended for busy readers to not read a book. *Sigh* Let’s just talk… Read More Black Leopard, Red Wolf
I found this one, The Parade by Dave Eggers, on the New Releases table at Barnes and Noble. I didn’t realize until after I bought it that Dave Eggers wrote The Circle, which my mom said was good and which was made into a movie.… Read More The Parade
No review today. Finals are this week, and last week was all sorts of busy. I’ll be back the first Sunday in May. Take care!
The setting and the subject matter- slavery- take me farther out of my comfort zone than I’m used to. I found this book, Washington Black by Esi Edugyan, while searching my grandparents’ house for new books to read.… Read More Washington Black
We’ve all read our fair share of dystopian novels, be it Hunger Games or Divergent. Dystopian is a pretty popular young adult genre these days. One of the dystopian books I remember reading way back in the ancient days of the mid-2000’s is Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer.… Read More Life as We Knew It
Tonight, I have an interesting read for you. I’ve gone out of my comfort zone a few times in the past few months but this time, I went far out. Instead of reading a young adult novel, I decided to check out a book called The Night Visitors by Carol Goodman.… Read More The Night Visitors

I remember walking past it every time I wanted to buy a book, and I always told myself that I would buy it next time I had money. I never did. On the Come Up is the follow-up story to The Hate U Give. It’s set one year later, in the same community.… Read More On the Come Up

My biggest qualm with cleaning, and the main reason that I rarely do: I’ll have to do it again. What’s the point of cleaning if things just get dirty again? But Marie Kondo claims that I’ll never have to tidy again.… Read More Tidying up
We’ve all seen the movie Love, Simon. A lot of us have also read the book it was based on, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Well, have you read the second book? The one focused on Leah?
It’s called Leah on the Offbeat.… Read More Leah on the Offbeat
Hello, lovely people. Over the past few weeks, I’ve posted a book review every Sunday, and I’ll continue to do that. Think of those as feature reviews. Then I thought, why not make a collection of short reviews of a few series I love? So, here they are, in (probably) no particular order: four of… Read More 4 YA Series to Read
