Book Reviews | August 30, 2016

Once upon a time, I read a cool book with a genie in it. Ever since then, I’ve been weirdly convinced that this is something I need so much more of in my life. And so, it was no surprise that when I heard about The Forbidden Wish it instantly got put on my TBR list. And this […]

Book Review: Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw

Book Review: Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw

Book Reviews | August 11, 2016

Hand me a premise involving fandom and fanfiction, and I’m on the hook, man. It’s no exaggeration that that premise made Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here my most anticipated debut of the year. But, sadly, this book wasn’t quite like I expected. Scarlett is an introverted, fandom-loving loner. She doesn’t have a lot of real life friends, and […]

Book Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Book Reviews | August 21, 2012

The one orange rating may be a little harsh since I didn’t finish it, but I just can’t deal with it, and I really tried. I don’t understand why people are in love with this series. I wasn’t convinced after Across the Universe and while reading this my apathy only grew. Not only do I not feel any […]

Book Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Book Reviews | July 16, 2012

I don’t really know quite how to feel about this one. I’d heard a lot of hype about it, quite a few people I know really love it.
