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 […]

Mini Review: One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington

Mini Review: One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington

“I want to know that if I drift off to sleep by accident one day, I’ll wake up in the same place. I want to live each day once, the best that I can live it.” What an interesting concept!!
