I definitely enjoy reading Donaldson‘s work. She has a way of twisting the plot to keep the story from being predictable.
Interesting book and a quick little read. I liked the spin they put on this tale.
This was the first book that I chose to read and review on NetGalley. At first I was really into it, but then I realized that all of the characters were one-dimensional, selfish girls with no redeeming qualities and the book really just leaves the reader hanging at the end. It wasn‘t terrible, but it wasn‘t great.
This was an... interesting read. Started out good, but the more I read, the less I enjoyed it. I felt like it centered around a group of high school kids that went to sadistic extremes to have freedom to be together and completely invisible.
Another great read by Megan Miranda 💙 Very interesting take, telling the story in reverse. She definitely kept me guessing right up to the end.
Truly chilling story. Listening to Lia‘s journey, hearing her mindset as she battles her eating disorder, was just eye-opening. Definitely a great read 💙
Another good book by Julie Murphy! Not your typical teenager love story. I enjoy that there is a lot about learning to live with the consequences of your actions, seeing as Alice causes quite a stir when she believed that she was dying from cancer. Would recommend this read ❤️
Probably one of the most disturbing books I‘ve ever read. Oddly enough, as horrifying as some of the content was, I couldn‘t stop reading it. Once again, Hopkins amazes me just how far she will push norms of literature to write about things that are usually hushed.
Great read ❤️ Julie Murphy has a comical way of telling a story while also addressing serious issues underneath. Love the way she addresses different body image issues that young girls face; it sends such a positive message about self-acceptance. Definitely recommend this book!
“I was so unaccustomed to such emotions, it took some time before I realized I was happy.”
Great short story! The story discusses Adeline living with an unloving mother after her father‘s death. She chooses not to speak anymore, which only makes things worse. But it‘s only a matter of time, through twists of loyalty and betrayal, before Adeline gets her happy ending.
Ran across this audiobook while looking for something new to listen to on an 8 hour road trip. I‘m surprised at how much I enjoyed it! Super cute little story about a 13 year old girl who was born without arms. It discusses how she navigates through life in a new town with her disability, and her friendship with a boy diagnosed with Tourette‘s. Would definitely recommend this!
First off, let me say, I LOVE the entire HP series ❤️ I read them at least once a year. However, this time, I chose to listen to the audio version with my daughters. Made for a great experience! I applaud JK Rowling for such a great start to a magical journey!
“In the perilous days of World Wars 1 & 2, the Gods held the fates - and the hearts - of 4 mortals in their hands.”
Wow... this book was simply amazing. I couldn‘t put it down. Berry pulls you in and entangles you in the love story of 4 individuals who had no clue that the Gods were aiding their every move. Definitely recommend this book ❤️
“We are a collection of lost causes, stashed here so no one has to see just how wounded we are.”
This book was an insightful journey of a young girl dealing with personal loss and an eating disorder. Definitely something new for me to read. Though there were some things left unanswered, it was a good, quick read.
“I‘ve decided language isn‘t as advanced as we think it is. We‘re still apes trying to express our thoughts with grunts while most of what we want to communicate stays locked in our brains.”
Read this for my book club. It is a very intriguing story about how children deal with trauma. I really enjoyed it, and definitely cried through the last several chapters.
Listened to the audiobook, so it was interesting to hear it read with different voices, depending on whose point of view it was from. I will say, I enjoy Flynn‘s writing style and the way she builds to suspense. However, the ending was fairly predictable. Good read though!
Short, decent read. I finished it one day. It was an alright plot, but fairly predictable. At least up until the very end... what the actually hell?! I‘m still just in shock.
Probably won‘t be the last book by Natasha Preston that I read. Interested to see what else she has written.
“This is what it means to swim in the tide, to walk the earth and feel it touch your feet. This is what it means to be alive.”
I‘ve always had an avid interest in Greek mythology. I loved how this book took one character, Circe, and walks you through her life from start to finish. I also enjoyed how it ties into other famous Greek figures. Definitely makes me want to find another book about the origins of these tales. Very interesting read 💛
