Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I’m having a weird moment where I don’t know what to say about a book. Simon was adorable.  110% of myself wanted nothing more than his complete and total happiness.  I liked Simon.  I liked Simon a lot.  I wanted to sit and watch his antics and frustrations and being human all day long.  Every time I sat down with this book, it hooked me.  So much love, honestly. It is a really quick read.  Legit, I sat down to read a couple chapters because I had a smidge of downtime and read the entire rest of the book.  The dialogue […]

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

I really, really, really enjoyed this book. I like Elise.  I get Elise.  I didn’t go through exactly what Elise did in school, but a lot of the time, I felt like she did.  High school can be brutal, guys.  Really, really brutal.  If you don’t fit in, then it’s ten times worse.  Elise’s story is about her depression hitting an absolute low, and how she comes back from that.  It’s not pretty.  In fact, a lot of times it’s really, really messy.  There are also really strong themes about cyberbullying.  But throughout the whole thing, there is a glimmer of […]

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simison

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simison

I had completely forgotten this book was on my TBR until it popped up as available on my Overdrive wishlist!  It turned out to be a really great surprise.  The Rosie Project is light, fun, and interesting all at once. 1.  Don Tillman is an excellent character.  His narrative voice is engaging, detailed, and keeps the pacing comfortable. 2.  I surprised myself by being on again, off again about Rosie.  Sometimes I like her, sometimes I didn’t.  That made her a highly engaging character, because I wasn’t sure if I wanted them to be in love, to be friends, or to […]

Crewel by Gennifer Albin

Crewel by Gennifer Albin

DNF’d @ 78% I usually wouldn’t do a proper review for a DNF – largely because I usually DNF at the beginning – but I was far enough in this one that I feel it deserves some words.  I have LOTS of word for Crewel, and they are mostly unfriendly. *deep breath* Crewel is about a girl in a dystopian world that is strictly ruled like the 1950s and women are basically treated like brainless dolls, unless you’re a Spinster, which is basically a goddess because you have the ability to manipulate the world.  Naturally, Adelice is a Spinster.  Or, more […]

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

I bought this book on Audible on a whim, and !!! boy am I glad I did?  S. Jae-Jones has that lyrical way of writing that makes my heart flutter and this is a long but also hauntingly gorgeous story and I loved it. 1.  I’ve seen some mixed reviews of Liesl, but I really liked her.  Liesl was a fluid character.  She isn’t quite sure what she wanted or who she was, a side-effect of constantly living in the shadows.  I liked Liesl’s imperfections and passionate fits.  At times, she was a commanding woman and at others a spoiled brat […]

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

Claudia is perfectly happy in her bubble of existence.  She had good grades, gets along well enough with her classmates and great with her siblings.  She has one bosom friend, and that’s all she needs in the world.  Is she happy?  As happy as anyone is, she supposes.  Mostly she just tries not to think about things and be relatively invisible. Which is why it’s so weird that suddenly Gideon Prewitt is super interested in talking to her, asking her to go to parties, and to sit with his friends at rehearsals.  And it’s so weird suddenly having to go hang out with […]
