Holy crap, this book was so addicting!! I’ve seen it compared to One of Us is Lying, which I enjoyed, but I think this one was even better! In the beginning, it starts off as a typical mystery – popular girl is murdered, her boyfriend is the supposed killer. Okay, I can see which direction this is going. But as Pippa started digging and uncovering secrets, shit got crazy! The list of suspects grew longer and just created more and […]

Review: Red Hood by Elana K. Arnold

THIS BOOK IS NOT YA. It is labeled as such, but contains sexual and mature content. Content warning: Sexual assault/violence/harassment, sexual content, graphic menstruation Sometimes boys become wolves, you know. Elana K. Arnold seems to have a penchant for making her readers uncomfortable in a powerful way. She doesn’t shy away from bringing those uncomfortable, yet important, topics to light. Just like with Damsel, many people are going to hate this story. It’s hard to read, and it’s definitely going […]

This book is a bit hard for me to review, because I had some pretty mixed feelings about it. First of all, I absolutely LOVED the dogs and the search and rescue aspect, that was definitely the selling point! I love animals in stories, and the dogs were a forefront in this one. I also really loved the wilderness setting – it actually reminded me hardcore of Homeward Bound! But, if you remove those two elements that I was quite […]

Wow. What a powerful story! This book absolutely broke my heart, and I felt so angry and indignant for the things that Shirin had to go through. This book is definitely important, and one that I think everyone should read! I hated the pathetic, soul-sucking effort it took to finally make a single friend brave enough to sit next to me in public. Coming from a place of privilege, it’s hard to ever imagine what going through these things would […]
