2022 Book Review: The Lost Sisters

The Lost Sisters by Holly Black YA Fantasy, 2018 by NOVL, 50 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Taryn. If you’re familiar with the Folk of the Air series, you already have opinions about this character. I can’t say this book will change them. Call that a warning. Nothing added to the series. Of course, that’s the... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Wizard of Oz

This book has been republished a LOT over the years so finding an official picture of this particular cover was difficult. Instead, here's the picture I shared on my social media when I announced I was reading it. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum MG Classic, Originally published in 1900 by George...

2022 Book Review: Finding Chika

Finding Chika by Mitch Albom A Nonfiction, 2019 by Harper, 256 Pages What I Didn’t Like: It almost feels intrusive sometimes. This is a true story of Chika, a young girl born in Haiti soon after an earthquake. It reads like a personal diary. I completely understand the need to write about things that are...

2022 Book Review: Great Wars

Great Wars A Anthology, 2022 by Lost Boys Press, 272 Pages What I Didn’t Like: As always with anthologies, it’s worth mentioning that not all the stories are things you’ll love. Of course, that’s also the beauty of anthologies. You may find that gem that you adore. I didn’t love all of these, that’s why... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Alice Network

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn A Historical Fiction, 2017 by William Morrow, 503 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Charlie’s chapters. They felt almost repetitive and unnecessarily fluffy. I suppose they exist mostly to break up the heaviness of the topics addressed in the rest of the book, which is important, but they just don’t... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: She Named Me Wolf

She Named Me Wolf by Tenkara Smart YA Fantasy, Independently Published in 2020, 336 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Content Warning: abuse, suicidal thoughts, violence. Very tough to read. Time jumps made this a complicated timeline to follow. Sometimes the events we follow seem unnecessary and I wondered what they added to the story. I was frustrated...

2022 Book Review: Dry

Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman YA Science Fiction, 2018 by Simon and Shuster, 390 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: This book is a close to future dystopia, in other words it’s something that absolutely could happen to our society in our lifetime. That alone makes it a little hard to read. Of course, that... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Verity

Verity by Colleen Hoover A Mystery/Thriller, 2018 by Grand Central Publishing, 336 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Content warning, in case you need it. This one contains lots of sexual language, violence, violence against children and death. Also if you, in general, don’t like unreliable narrators you’ll probably not be a fan of this book. The... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Hammer My Heart

Hammer My Heart by Michelle Angelle A Romance, 2022 by Michelle Angelle Books,266 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Perfect characters. I know it’s a typical romance thing and you guys eye roll at me everytime I list it as a negative thing, but it bothers me. These two main characters are both beautiful people with...
