From the Sideline – Amy Avanzino

From the Sideline – Amy Avanzino

 From the Sideline by Amy Avanzino is a book that I so enjoyed reading. I liked the author’s first book, Wake-Up Call, and when I was approached to read the second in her series, I signed up immediately. And then, probably the biggest thing that has happened to me in […]

The Immortal Crown – Kieth Merrill

The Immortal Crown – Kieth Merrill

 Why, oh why do I keep requesting sweeping epics? I know I will be confused, I know I will hate all of the description used but yet I still persist in wanting to read them. The Immortal Crown by Kieth Merrill is a true grand tale. Full of intrigue, hidden identities, […]

Girls on Fire – Robin Wasserman

Girls on Fire – Robin Wasserman

 Oh dear god yes. This book brought back all of the angst of high school, toxic friendships, lies compounding lies, a social stratus that defines all and so much more. Girls on Fire by Robin Wasserman is a book about teenagers that is not a YA in the best way. Dark and even […]

The Last Time We Were Us – Leah Konen

 Oh look at how pretty that cover is. And the synopsis, a bad boy returns and turns the summer of a girl upside down. So dreamy, it has to be good. Right? It should be amazing, please be amazing. I have so much hope… But sadly no, The Last Time We […]

The Last Good Girl – Allison Leotta

The Last Good Girl – Allison Leotta

I don’t generally like getting into a series at any point after book one. I like to have a grounding in the character and the history of them. I was unaware that The Last Good Girl was part of a series when I requested it. I loved the synopsis and was intrigued […]

The Outliers – Kimberly McCreight

The Outliers – Kimberly McCreight

The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight was a mismash. The author has some great writing skills and some not so good story telling skills. A girl who is afraid to leave her house leaves by deep breathing and closing her eyes. A boy she doesn’t trust becomes her ally almost instantly. When […]
