Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

I am vengeance. I loved Not a Drop to Drink, so I was expecting to like this book even though it’s outside of my genre comfort zone. But I wasn’t expecting for it to blow me away! This book is so raw and realistic. There’s something about Mindy’s writing that perfectly captures the characters and coveys the story. But more than that, this book is pretty heavy. It’s very honest about what it’s like to be a teenager in a way that most […]

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

Review: A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

But, I did still enjoy it. The pacing was a tad painful at first. I had a lot of trouble getting into it, despite how excited I was to read it. It didn’t start picking up until after 35%, but after that […]

Review: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Review: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Not a Drop to Drink was a very character driven novel. The characters were thoroughly fleshed out and so realistic that I connected to each and every one of them. At some point I realized with a shock just how invested in them I actually was! Then I had to steel myself for the unavoidable heartbreak that I was probably in for… This book is not fluffy unicorns and happy rainbows. It’s dark, and desperate, even depressing at times. That’s […]
