I have given a few people books and I think (hope) they liked them… Continue reading BLOGMAS DAY FIVE: Books That Would Make Good Gifts

BLOMGAS DAY THREE: A Very Large Expanse of Sea Review

A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi  I did not know what to expect with Tahareh’s first foray into contemporary novels. I’ve read (and enjoyed) the first three books of the Shatter Me series. All I really knew going into AVELOS was; that it was about a Muslim girl experiencing life in a… Continue reading BLOMGAS DAY THREE: A Very Large Expanse of Sea Review

BOOK REVIEW: Unclaimed Baggage

Unclaimed Baggage by Jen Doll This book surprised me in the best way. I really enjoyed all three of the characters and loved seeing their friendship grow. It can be hard to carry a story over three POVs, but Jen Doll did it quite well. I enjoyed all POV's equally. This book falls perfectly into… Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Unclaimed Baggage

BOOK REVIEW: What If It’s Us

What If It's Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera *image not mine* I’m not going to lie. I was skeptical of this book and I’m not entirely sure why. Most of the reviews I saw were positive; but, I did not want to fall into the hype of this book and then not enjoy… Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: What If It’s Us

Some Of My Favorite (Lesser Known) Contemporary Novels

I read for fun and to destress and these novels (usually) do just that. I realize upon writing this post that most people read contemporary novels in the summer and that posting this in Fall is probably not… Continue reading Some Of My Favorite (Lesser Known) Contemporary Novels

BOOK REVIEW: The Wall of Winnipeg & Me

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata To preface this review: I read this in one sitting from about 10pm to 2am so I may have missed some stuff and may have loved it more than if I had spaced it out.  Okay, this book was more of that slow burn goodness that… Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Wall of Winnipeg & Me

BOOK REVIEW: [Dis]Connected

[Dis]Connected: Poems and Stories of Connection and Otherwise  Publication Date: October 1, 2018 This collection is actually the reason I signed up for NetGalley. I saw one of the authors tweet about it being up on the site, so I joined.
