ARC Book Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Let me start by being completely upfront with you guys. I first read this book last year as a beta reader, and I am now writing my review after having read an advance review copy, so I’m familiar with this story and have seen it develop over time. Paula Stokes is a dear friend. But my blog is nothing if not honest, and I am not lying when I say that this book blew me away. I’m not a typical mystery/thriller reader, and a simple whodunnit is not something that attracts me. But Vicarious is definitely different. I would still describe it as a mystery/thriller, […]

ARC Book Review: Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes

Dear Paula Stokes, How dare you write a book as flawless as this. We both know I was incredibly enchanted by The Art of Lainey and, as a devourer of fluff, there was a big chance that I would fall in love with this book too. But, okay, even I did not expect the level of delight and adoration that Girl Against the Universe brought to me. This book is literally the total package, and then to have my name in the acknowledgements… I repeat. How. Dare. Reasons why Girl Against the Universe is basically perfect: 1. The depiction of anxiety. When I first heard […]

ARC Book Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Mysteries and thrillers usually aren’t my thing. I won’t lie to you about that. No, the reason why I picked up Liars, Inc. is simply because of the author. Paula Stokes is amazing and wonderful and so so friendly, and I just adored The Art of Lainey, so in spite of this book being a little out of my comfort zone, I had to have it. Well, I regret nothing – because I really enjoyed this book! Liars, Inc. is a murder mystery. I don’t feel like I’m spoiling it – because it’s in the blurb – but Max’s best friend, Preston, disappears and later […]

ARC Book Review: The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

When I first saw The Art of Lainey pop up on Edelweiss, I thought it sounded good and cute, but I wasn’t immediately sold. I put it in the back of my head to check out later. THANKFULLY, the author kept me from making the grievous mistake of passing up on the chance to read this early. She emailed me, asking me to review it, saying that she thought I would like it based on books I had loved, like Meant to Be. Oh man. She’s good. She got me right then and there. And she was not wrong. I loved Meant to Be and […]
