    A Spoiler Free Review: Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

    Have you ever read a book and the second you finished it, started the next one in the series? To be so engaged in a story is a wonderful feeling, and I was unable to stop thinking about The Diviners by Libba Bray until I was able to start Lair of Dreams. Likewise, I’m currently craving the third book in this series since I just finished LoD (seriously guys I am too in love with these books)! This book follows the same cast of characters with a few new additions as they try to solve the mystery behind a mysterious “Sleeping Sickness” sweeping 1920’s New York City. They must use…

    To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before MOVIE Review

    It’s always scary when books are turned into movies. You’re stuck left wondering if the directors will do the lovely stories justice and hoping that it’s going to be everything you’ve dreamed of. Usually, they end in disappointment— characters lose key qualities or major plot points are mixed. I was nervously anticipating the release of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han on Netflix, considering I ended up being a pretty big fan of the trilogy. TATBILB follows Lara Jean Covey as she ventures into a fake relationship with one of the most popular boys at her school, Peter Kavinsky, after secreted love letters that she wrote are…

    A Spoiler Free Review: The Diviners by Libba Bray

    If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good old historical fiction novel. So, when I heard of The Diviners, a book not only set in 1920’s New York City, but with a paranormal mystery twist, I was sold. It sounded perfect (and honestly it still does). The Diviners follows Evie O’Neill as she leaves her boring hometown for the Big Apple, moving in with her studious Uncle who runs a museum of the occult. I don’t want to spoil anything (the story being a mystery and all), so I’ll leave the synopsis at that, but if it sounds interesting read on, then read the book! I will warn though that…

    sophomore year goals

    As a YA reader, I have been reading stories about kids faring the intrepid high school hallways long before I had to do it myself. I started this blog halfway through my freshman year, and it feels like its been both a lifetime and second since that day. Now, I’ll be returning to school in 5 short days, and I wanted to make a special post to commemorate it. I mostly interact with the bookish community through Instagram, and it has been amazing to meet so many people through that platform. I appreciate every single person who reads my blog and want to start sharing more of my life with…

    a spoiler free review: neverworld wake by marisha pessl

    It’s not unusual for me to judge a book by its cover. I know that you’re not supposed to do it, but I can’t help it. Sometimes you just see an astonishing or cool cover, and you HAVE to buy it. That’s what happened with me for Neverworld Wake. It just seemed so intriguing! This book is pretty mysterious, so there’s not much I can say. Basically this book follows Beatrice, a college student who gets stuck in an impossible time loop with her (ex)bestfriends. This book is suitable for mature high school students, but probably not someone who typically picks up middle grade. Trigger Warnings: Suicide. I found this…

    a spoiler free review: dreamology by lucy keating

    Recently, I have been on a sort of reading binge, and I love it. I’ve been inhaling stories like air, staying up way later than I should reading and waking up only to return to the book. I did that with Eliza and Her Monsters (link to that review is here), and I did that with Dreamology. This was a pretty short book, and I finished it over the course of a day which after completing it kind of surprised me. It wasn’t one of those books that’s just so incredible that you can’t put it down; it was just extremely entertaining. Dreamology follows a girl named Alice, and she…

    a spoiler free review: eliza and her monsters by francesca zappia

    To read, or not to read, that is the question. Okay, okay. I know that’s not the real quote, but sometimes the struggle to choose what to read and when to read it is a serious problem. Which book on my ever-expanding TBR should I pick up next? Well, last night at about 10 PM I decided it would be a mighty fine idea to pick up Eliza and Her Monsters. This story took the book community by storm last year, but the hype intimidated me (as always). I felt like reading, though, and I had the book, so I figured why not? After all, it was supposed to be…
