Powerful and Heartbreaking

You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone was one of the last books I read in 2017 and I couldn't have chosen a better book to wrap up my year with. It's a powerful yet heartbreaking tale between twin sisters at odds with each other, while they face the life-shattering test...

Action-packed And With The Right Dark Elements!

I am in love! The DC Icon series is turning me into a fan of superheroes, and Marie Lu's take on Batman is all kinds of exciting. Batman: Nightwalker is a fantastic follow-up to Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo and this time we step into young Bruce Wayne's life...

Ridiculously Funny YA Version of Big Brother!

HILARIOUS. Nice Try, Jane Sinner is hands down one of the funniest YA books I've ever read. Just imagine a YA version of the Big Brother reality TV show, but on a smaller scale and more of a chaotic mess. It is told through Jane Sinner's journal entries (which didn't...

A Solid Retelling With A Good Anti-Heroine!

It took me a long time to finish Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, but overall, this book turned out to be a solid story. Julie C. Dao's writing is beautiful and poetic--the perfect voice for a tale such as this one! What I Liked: ...

Epic Space Adventure!

I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. Easily one of my favorite reads of 2017! Science Fiction is not usually my go-to genre, but I decided to pick this one up since author Claudia Gray is one of the first YA authors I read as a teen so I obviously had...

Creepy characters!

This is my first book by E. Lockhart and boy did it stress me out! Told in reverse, I flipped through pages to discover the mystery behind the characters that I wish to never cross. What I Liked: I can't remember the last time...

A Captivating Spin to Fairy Lore!

An Enchantment of Ravens is such a charming read! Took me quite a few days to finish it despite not being that long, but it's because I wanted to make it last. Every page is a wonder to go through and fans of fair folk tales will enjoy this refreshing...

Beautifully Painful Read!

I HAVE NEVER CRIED SO HARD READING A BOOK. Or laughed. Or laughed AND cried at the same time. I cannot even begin to express how much this book has touched me to the point of never wanting to release it from my grasp. A Short History of the Girl...

Bloody, Tenebrous, and Captivating!

Why do I always feel highly inadequate to correctly express my love and admiration for Kerri Maniscalco and her extraordinary novels? Stalking Jack the Ripper turned out to be my favorite read of 2016 and I dare say that Hunting Prince Dracula might be my favorite of 2017! This is...

Chock-full of Secrets and Mischief!

Remind me again to never read YA Thrillers at night. First We Were IV is a book that has haunted me for the last few days, but I do not regret it AT ALL because it's so GOOD. The mystery, the suspense, the secrets, the ending... GAH! You should definitely...

Perfect Prequel Novel To My Favorite Series

*Tries to contain tears* In our life, I believe there are certain books/series that will resonate the strongest in each step we take, for each stage we reach. In my childhood, the Harry Potter books were the series that made me believe in magic, the books that turned me into...
