5 Star Books of 2018

5 Star Books of 2018

I recently saw Cristina @ Girl in the Pages post about her 5 star reading drought (which was originally inspired by Lauren @ Bookmark Lit’s post here), and I thought it was such a great post! It made me wonder what my 5 star reads looked like for 2018, and I thought I’d do a post analyzing my own stats! 5 star books of 2018 I figured the number would be low since I’m a picky rater. I had 13 in […]

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

I read something else (Ship of Smoke and Steel, which I did NOT like), and the break was just […]

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Audiobook Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

To be completely honest, I was worried going in that I would be the black sheep again because the hype for this book is U N R E A L. Thankfully, I wasn’t! For once, the hype is 100% justified. This book is so important, so impactful. It really makes you think about the world and how flawed it is. And honestly, this book got under my skin. I didn’t expect to care so much, because I am just not a contemporary […]
