Review: “Sources Say” by Lori Goldstein

Never in my wildest imagination did I think I would actively enjoy inviting even more politics into my life. And yet, dang if Sources Says isn’t an absolute treat that seeks to capitalize, satirize and entertain that masses, all while laying out the fundamental issues that the American two-party system is struggling with. All, ofContinue reading “Review: “Sources Say” by Lori Goldstein”

Review: “Woven in Moonlight” by Isabel Ibañez

As the Young Adult genre has stepped their game up with their cover art across the board, it takes quite a bit for a cover to so thoroughly encapsulate me that I want the book immediately with no questions asked. Woven In Moonlight’s cover is one of those pesky few. Add in the description onContinue reading “Review: “Woven in Moonlight” by Isabel Ibañez”

Review: “They Wish They Were Us” by Jessica Goodman

Now this is a book that you go into expecting a pretty straight-forward One Thing, and then come out of it with a Completely Different Thing. It was both a pro and a con, in my humble opinion.  Slated as Gossip Girl meets One of Us Is Lying, They Wish They Were Us follows theContinue reading “Review: “They Wish They Were Us” by Jessica Goodman”

Review: “The Ravens” by Kass Morgan And Danielle Paige

It has been a hot minute since I have found a spooky, witchy little tale to sink my teeth into. Luckily The Ravens provided just about everything I had been craving. It’s a little bit The Secret Circle and quite a bit of The Craft, but it somehow takes the good parts of those witchyContinue reading “Review: “The Ravens” by Kass Morgan And Danielle Paige”

Review: “I Hope You’re Listening” by Tom Ryan

This was an interesting little read, to say the least! I was pleasantly surprised about how engrossed I was in it and the variety of factors that made this novel work, even if it wasn’t quite perfect. I Hope You’re Listening follows Delia “Dee” Skinner, a teenager who is constantly haunted by the violent abductionContinue reading “Review: “I Hope You’re Listening” by Tom Ryan”

Review: “Boyfriend Material” by Alexis Hall

“I’m conscious this could be rather burdensome to hear, but you remain the thing I have most chosen for myself. The thing that’s most exclusively mine. The one thing that brings me the deepest joy.” Look, Alexis Hall can do no wrong in my book. Seriously. I’ve been reading his books for years; trekking thoughContinue reading “Review: “Boyfriend Material” by Alexis Hall”

Review: “The Fascinators” by Andrew Eliopulos

“If you believe it, you can achieve it. That’s like the number-one rule of magic.” You know, The Fascinators was a really interesting book that for some reason or other, I just didn’t connect to. It wasn’t written too young, which is my complaint about a couple of other YA contemporary reads. The plot hadContinue reading “Review: “The Fascinators” by Andrew Eliopulos”

Review: “Some Laneys Died” by Brooke Skipstone

“I couldn’t go back in time, but maybe I could skip sideways.” Well I can say that this isn’t a book that pulls its punches. I actually got this while browsing through NetGalley and stopped on it because of the cool cover. Blood-red, weirdly psychedelic. Like a sci-fi novel waiting to happen. And I wasn’tContinue reading “Review: “Some Laneys Died” by Brooke Skipstone”
