#BookReview Lost Boy by Shelley Hrdlitschka

Lost Boy by Shelley Hrdlitschka is a unique read that will take you away to a whole new culture. I was unsure how I would feel about this book, and honestly I'm still a little confused. Jon left a polygamous community to try to find a life of his own. He doesn't believe in the… Continue reading #BookReview Lost Boy by Shelley Hrdlitschka

#BookReview Sadie by Courtney Summers

Sadie is an intense YA thriller by Courtney Summers. This book is unique, let me tell ya!

You need to understand… Continue reading #BookReview Sadie by Courtney Summers

#BookReview Smile by Raina Telgemeier

Smile by Raina Telgemeier is a story that totally connected with me in ways other books couldn't. Raina's story echoes a lot of my own, and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see a story like this get shared. Many kids will face dental issues and bullying, so a book like… Continue reading #BookReview Smile by Raina Telgemeier

#BookReview Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

I have been eying Throne of Glass for YEARS. Quite literally, since this book has come out I've been wary to touch it. It's so well hyped and sometimes that hype doesn't live up to all of it's praise. Not too long ago, I came across this book at a local discount store and I… Continue reading #BookReview Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

#BookReview The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The Hate U Give is a powerful and moving novel, that is an essential read (in my humble opinion). YA is powerful. It used to just be my escape from the world, back when I was in high school. I was lifted away to fantastical realms where the girls were in love triangles and were… Continue reading #BookReview The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

#BookReview The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong

To begin this review, I have to admit I'm a little biased. I have always enjoyed Kelley Armstrong's books and doubly so because she's Canadian (represent!!). My review will absolutely reflect that I thoroughly enjoy her writing style and I am always down for a reading ride in her books. So, off to the races...… Continue reading #BookReview The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong

#BookReview Cress by Marissa Meyer

W-O-W-Z-A. I love fairy tales and their adaptions, but Marissa Meyer takes this to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL. I haven't been this glued to a series in a very long time (almost a decade... back when I was in high school). It's seriously amazing that Marissa can pull my attention so well. Seriously, I just… Continue reading #BookReview Cress by Marissa Meyer

#BookReview Seizure by Kathy Reichs

The first book, Virals, was an absolute hit for me and Seizure continued the insanity! This time around Tory, Ben, Shelton, Hi and Cooper are off on another adventure.... except... get this... PIRATES.… Continue reading #BookReview Seizure by Kathy Reichs

Christmas time is here! Holidays are so much fun: snow, Christmas songs, Hallmark movies, and lots of lovely books to read all curled up in a blanket with some tea and my animals. To celebrate, here's a review of a holiday inspired book!   I bought this book WAY back in 2012 when it came… Continue reading #BookReview Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

#BookReview Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Steifvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue was an intriguing novel. It's my own fault that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I could have. It has been YEARS (and I mean, literally years - probably five?) since I've read the first two books in this series (The Raven Boys and The Dream Theives) so I… Continue reading #BookReview Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Steifvater
