BOOK REVIEW: STARGIRL by Jerry Spinelli

I can't recall exactly where I came across STARGIRL for the first time, though my guess would be I saw something about it on Goodreads. I'm not usually a reader of anything bordering on Middle Grade; it has a tendency to amplify everything I dislike about Young Adult. (This doesn't surprise me, of course. The … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: STARGIRL by Jerry Spinelli

BOOK REVIEW: FINDING HOPE by Colleen Nelson

I received an ARC of this book free of charge through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I don't know when I picked this up, but I've had a fascination for books and characters whose lives are falling apart around them. Vices? Bring them on. Addiction? Love it. Abuse? Sure. I truly enjoy watching … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: FINDING HOPE by Colleen Nelson

BOOK REVIEW: UNFORGIVEN by Stephanie Erickson

Yes, I know, I know. I talked to you about book 1 in this series last week. I'm sorry. But I wanted this book to sit on its own, because it really begins to delve into the meat and potatoes of this series, and I didn't want to bog down the last review. This one … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: UNFORGIVEN by Stephanie Erickson

BOOK REVIEW: THE CHANGING SEASON by Steven Manchester

I've been reading enough lately that I think the Saturday book review will become a regular thing from now on. I don't know that I'll have one EVERY Saturday, but at least for a while I should have enough books to fill it up. Anyway! This is another Story Plant book, that I have received … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE CHANGING SEASON by Steven Manchester

BOOK REVIEW: UNSEEN by Stephanie Erickson

To be honest, I don't remember how I came upon this book. I'm guessing something popped up on either Facebook or Twitter from the author, offering the first two books in a trilogy for free, and I decided “well hey, why not, free books are good.” Because I can't find anything in my email prior … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: UNSEEN by Stephanie Erickson

BOOK REVIEW: ALORA: THE WANDER-JEWEL by Tamie Dearen

In many ways, this has been a review long-coming. Quite a while ago now, I saw Dearen talking on her Twitter account about Alora and the upcoming book. There was a sale going on--but it was only on the Kindle store, and I only had a Nook. I sent a message off to her, asking … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: ALORA: THE WANDER-JEWEL by Tamie Dearen

BOOK REVIEW: DIVIDED by Sharon M. Johnston

There are two kinds of books, when it comes to characters staying with you after the final page: the ones who wrap themselves so deeply into your brain you'd swear that just for a moment, they were real...and the ones who are stuck there as your brain keeps trying desperately to figure out what the … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: DIVIDED by Sharon M. Johnston

BOOK REVIEW: An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet

I received an ARC for this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. If absolutely nothing else, the initial blurb of this book is enough to make me grab it off the shelf. Dark things happening! There was a war! Ugly truths! Risks being taken and secrets being kept! Woo! What more could … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet

BOOK REVIEW: Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer

I've never read any of Jodi Picoult's work before, though a quick look at a Books-A-Million the other day showed me that I'd be willing to at least give them a shot. So when Between the Lines and its sequel Off the Page started showing up in my BookTube world, I didn't quite know what to expect. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer

BOOK REVIEW – The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Curse is a book that I walked by in a library and the cover caught my eye. I'd been in looking for a different book (which I didn't find) and saw the gorgeous red-pink cover and had to see what it was about. The blurb was interesting enough, and since I wasn't finding … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW – The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
