ARC Book Review: Bright Lights, Dark Nights by Stephen Emond

July 30, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I didn’t know much about Bright Lights, Dark Nights before I picked it up – aside from the fact that it had an interracial romance and gorgeous illustrations. I’m delighted to say that I found this an engaging, quick read that had both light and dark tones and some thought-provoking discussion of modern-day racial tensions. A heavy focus of Bright Lights, Dark Nights is on a first love – between… Read more »

Ever since I started reading YA actively in 2012, I’ve heard the greatest things about Rachel Hawkins as being an author of excellent entertaining and fluffy paranormal romances. As such, I’ve been meaning to try out her books for ages, but it never quite made it to the top of my priority list. What an idiot am I. Rebel Belle is an absolute delight, and I can’t wait to check… Read more »

Book Review: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

July 18, 2015 Reviews 7 ★★

WARNING: I am spoiling this entire book for you and I don’t care. *deep sigh* It’s been almost 3 months since I read this book, but I’m just getting around to reviewing it now. It’s so laughably terrible that I needed to have the right energy and enough time to fully explain why. Honestly, before I dove into the book, I’d already seen that the public opinion on it was… Read more »

Ever since I read Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass, I knew that she was an author to keep up with.

With each book of hers that I read, my love expands even more, and A Court of Thorns and Roses cements her as one of my all-time… Read more »
