There Were Fabulous Parts... And Bleh Parts

Note: I read Treachery in conjunction with the live chat we conducted with the author earlier today. The winner for the paperback copy giveaway from the chat is listed below. I have very mixed feelings about The Treachery of Beautiful Things. I just finished it, so it's a little...

Unputdownable! (For Realz, guys)

Today’s review is about a book I am super excited about for many, many reasons (if you’re bored with backstories, just scroll down). First of all, it’s Michael Grant! Super talented author of the Gone series. Second of all, it’s been so long since I’d read a thrilling, gross boy...
