Double Feature: Teenagers, Drama & Danger

Teenage drama…you know, when I was an actual teenager I wanted absolutley zero to do with it, but now that I’m an adult I LOVE indulging in a little guilty pleasure via book form! And that’s great news because I recentley read two teenage-drama focused books. All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban and Clique…

A YA Fantasy Classic Retelling – Belle Revolte Review

So on Goodreads I gave Belle Revolte 3 stars, but my actual rating is 3.25/5. That may not seem like an important distinction, but it is to me. Belle Revolte is one of those books where the cover drew me in immediately. I mean, just look at it! It’s stunning, it’s like dripping donut glaze…

Some dreams chase you back… – Reverie review

Reverie by Ryan La Sala is a very unusual book that is described as Inception meets The Magicians, but I don’t think that does it justice. That’s because Reverie is many things, but above all is highly imaginative, unapologetic in its queerness, magical and 100% original. Reverie is a YA fantasy that I promise you,…

Here’s the truth – The Truth About Keeping Secrets Review

The Truth About Keeping Secrets was not exactly the book that I was expecting. I knew this was going to be a YA book (and we all know I love those!) but I was expecting much more of a thriller than what I actually got. In all honesty, The Truth About Keeping Secrets is less of a thriller…

I Can’t Keep This Secret! – Two Can Keep A Secret Review

Ok, complete GUSH time! Anyone who has been following me, either on here or on Instagram, for a while will know that I am a huge fan of Karen M. McManus just from her first book, One of Us is Lying. So naturally I couldn’t wait to read her second novel Two Can Keep A Secret! Considering I awarded One…

We’ve got a Squib here – How to Hang a Witch Review

How to Hang a Witch was gifted to me by my amazing friend (go check her out here) and I was all geared up for using it as a Halloween read! The Salem Witch Trials is a fascinating, yet tragic, event in history and. I’m all about the Salem witch trials, so I was all about this…

Hell hath no fury, and she has no mercy – Sadie Review

Sadie by Courtney Summers was one of the most hyped books of 2018. I’d seen it all over bookstagram and I’m really grateful to my friend for gifting it to me. I definitely enjoyed Sadie, it was a fast and enjoyable read that deals with some really heavy subject matter. I went in to Sadie…
