Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Trigger warning: Abuse To be completely honest, I never would have picked this book up on my own. I’m not a contemporary fan, and I’m even less of a romance fan. But, my good friend Erin highly recommended it – and in the utmost form of bookpushing, sent me a copy. So, I gave it a go – and I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I never thought I’d enjoy it as much as I did. It’s definitely not something I […]

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber (unpopular opinion again oops)

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber (unpopular opinion again oops)

After seeing everyone RAVING about how amazing the sequel was and how it was just sooo much better than the first, I had some pretty high hopes. I didn’t love Caraval or anything – I was super underwhelmed by the ending, but I did enjoy it for the most part because of the intriguing world. However, this book was not only a struggle, but a MAJOR disappointment. I feel like I read a totally different book than everyone else did. […]

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I feel very, very alive. It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I read this book, so it’s hard to review it! I’d forgotten a lot of it so I had to skim the book to remember. I did really enjoy it while I was reading though! The story is super cute. “But you know, there’s an upside here. Because when you spend so much time intensely wanting something, and then you actually get the thing? It’s magic.” There’s something […]

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

The stories in this one were extremely hit or miss for me. While there were a few I loved, there were also a lot I didn’t love. I did enjoy the culture and diversity in this one, though! These stories feature a myriad of POC and LGBTQ+ characters. I also quite loved the girl power that this book had going for it! Favorite stories: Daughters of Baba Yaga by Brenna Yovanoff, Why They Watch Us Burn by Elizabeth May, Death […]
