As soon as I heard about this book, I was everywhere trying to get an ARC. As we all know, I'm constantly on the lookout for books with Jewish characters that have nothing to do with the Holocaust. And not only is this that but it's a YA romance between two girls and it has a HEA (happily ever after)!!
I don't even know how to talk about this book. It's everything I didn't know I needed. It mostly takes place in Michigan (where I live), it's in a bookstore, it goes into the worlds authors create and what they mean to readers, and deals with grief in such a complex and beautiful way. What more could you want?? I cried so much. Let's get to the review!->
Here we go again! Historical romance, anyone?? This is also called "the publicist/marketing person sends Sarah an eARC and apparently she can't say no". Soooo, here we are again. Let's discuss The Devil in Her Bed by Kerrigan Byrne. Synopsis (from Goodreads): He lives in secret service to the Crown—a man of duty, deception, and… Continue reading The Devil in Her Bed: Amazing Backstory but the Rest Falls Flat
Well, this sucks. I love Brittany Cavallaro's books and writing and was so looking forward to Muse, but...it just didn't do it for me. I'm disappointed and I'm disappointed that I'm disappointed. But it happens. I never thought I would find a Tana French book boring and YET, that happened last year. So here we… Continue reading Muse: Damn, I’m Disappointed
Y'all, prepare yourself! I was very nervous going into this book because cults scare me. The lack of control, the initiation, the smart people being brought in even when they know better. It's scary. But me not reading a Courtney Summers book was not going to happen so I swept my fears into a corner… Continue reading The Project: I Don’t Know How I’m Still Alive
Y'all, when I saw this book I was like YES, PLEASE. I loved Tweet Cute so I knew I would like this one and I was not wrong. Secret siblings, parental lies, love, friendship, and all while going to camp!
The next Adrienne Young book! While everyone love Sky in the Deep, I feel like I'm the only one who liked The Girl the Sea Gave Back lol. But this is a whole new series with a whole new group of complex characters that might be in even more constant danger than Eelyn and the vikings.
Do I even need to state how much I love a Jane Austen retelling? I LOVE THEM! And Sonali Dev's The Rajes series is one of my favorites. Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors was fantastic and when I saw the next book in the series was a Persuasion retelling, I almost died of excitement. And… Continue reading Recipe for Persuasion: Brilliant Jane Austen Retelling
UPDATE: Yep, here we are again. Based on multiple Twitter threads, Rory Power has been revealed to be a bully (at the very least) and to support racism and bashing an AOC. I will no longer be supporting her. Wilder Girls will be taken off my shelves and I will be supporting the authors she… Continue reading Burn Our Bodies Down: I Am Never Going Near a Corn Field Again
Y'all know I love a Sherlock Holmes retelling and Sherry Thomas's Lady Sherlock series in one of my absolute favorites. So, when I saw the newest book in the series on Edelweiss, I immediately slammed down on the request button. Charlotte Holmes, her sister, Livia, Mrs. Watson, and Lord Ingram are such an intriguing group… Continue reading The Art of Theft: Charlotte Holmes is Robbing Mansions
