Review: An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

When I got the email that I was eligible to get an eARC of An Anonymous Girl if I wanted one, I almost fell out of my chair. The Wife Between Us is towards the top of my “top 5 books of the year” list, and I couldn’t sing its praises more if I tried. I read mostly YA and middle grade, as you might have gathered by now, so for me to pick up a “grown up” book it’s got to…

Review: Wild Blue Wonder by Carlie Sorosiak

I never went to summer camp as a child – just never had a desire. If given the opportunity now, I probably still wouldn’t to be honest: it’s too hot, there are bugs and the ground is hard and unforgiving. But sometimes I read a summer camp book (excluding ones about murder – sorry, The Last Time I Lied) that makes me want to throw caution to the wind and be a teenager at sleepaway camp. Wild Blue Wonder is one of…

Review: Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson and I have a strange, rather tumultuous relationship. I loved and adored Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, and Second Chance Summer. But I DNFd Since You’ve Been Gone because it just wasn’t sticking to my ribs like I needed in that moment. I preordered Save the Date because Morgan Matson is, along with Sarah Dessen and Huntley Fitzpatrick, one of those authors you just buy automatically when they drop a new single, though in this case “single” means “Summer romantic comedy book…

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Blogs

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (as always, hosted by the inimitable Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl) was hard because I could list so much more than ten blogs that I love and adore. The book Twitter community has been so wonderful, open and accepting of everyone who crosses paths with it. I have so much fun scrolling down my feed every day – one of the best things I ever did was revamping my old website, dusting out the cobwebs…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Mash Together

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (as always, hosted by the inimitable Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl) took a lot of thought, fancasting and daydreaming – I think I can safely say now that I am confident in my choices, though it took me way longer than I expected it to! This week, we’re looking at 10 books we’d mash together – I am interpreting this to mean 5 pairs of books that I’d like to see cross over. And I…

Review: Broken Things by Lauren Oliver

Three best friends, very different girls with not much in common. Mia – the ballerina, the quiet, gentle girl with a secret crush. Brynn, the tough, boorish loudmouth. And Summer – the force to be reckoned with, the planet the others orbited. The three were thick as thieves, never could be seen without each other – and a strange book from the 1960s. The Way Into Lovelorn, the story of three teenagers who stumble into a secret world of fantasy and…

Top Ten Tuesday: 5 Books That I Hope Live Up to the Hype & 5 Books That Did

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (as always, hosted by the inimitable Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl) is a fun prompt! It’s especially fun because I only have, like, 10 minutes to write this week’s entry and it should be a fairly easy one! This week, we are focusing on 5 books that you think lived up to the hype, and 5 books you hope will when they release! These are my top 5 books that, in my opinion, lived up…

July Wrap-Up & August TBR

I can’t believe July is over. But I can’t say that I’m not extremely, incredibly grateful for its leave of absence. July ending means August, and August is practically September, which means it’s basically Halloween, like, tomorrow. You don’t need to check my math, just trust me. #AlternativeFacts  Pages Read: 1,350 – an average of 337 per book.  Average Rating: 4.75 stars  Least Favorite: The Book of Essie  Most Favorite: The Benefits of Being An Octopus I unfortunately can’t say that July was my best reading…

Review: The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

I had so much love and adoration for Riley Sager’s Final Girls last year – I wasn’t sure if a book existed that could top it. Technically, it didn’t, because Riley Sager was still writing it. There is something masterfully ethereal in the way Mr. Sager writes his books – and for a male author, he absolutely has a deft grip on the twenty-something female psyche. While Final Girls dealt with the trope of the one woman left standing in the wake…

WWW – July 25, 2018 Edition

Hey there innertubers, it’s Wednesday, and we all know what that means – it’s time for WWW! Which I will always and forever call “Whatcha Wreading Wednesday” in my head, and you can’t stop me. This beautiful gem of a weekly post is brought to you by Taking on a World of Words, and on this blessed and hallowed day, we answer three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?…
