Fugly by Claire Waller

Please note, I received a copy of this e-book and exchange for an honest review. Thank you NetGalley! Please be aware that this review will contain spoilers. One of my favorite things about this book, was that I was actively trying to predict what was going to happen next, and I was usually wrong. For the longest time, I was convinced that “Tori” would end up being Amy. Honestly, I’m still kind of surprised that it wasn’t. And then when it became extremely obvious that it wasn’t going to work out, I thought it might be Brat. I will say … Continue reading Fugly by Claire Waller

These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling

***Spoilers ahead*** This was a great choice for my Book of the Month Young Adult box! I initially chose it solely based off of the title and the cover. But I am very glad with my decision. This was a very quick and engaging read. The story was captivating and made it difficult to stop even when I needed to. Hannah story seemed, at first, like a typical teenagers. Teenage angst, rebellion, trying to find your place in the world… of course with the added twist of being able to do magic and be a witch. While I did understand … Continue reading These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling

I’ll Be There For You: The One About Friends by Kelsey Miller

At the time, Friends was an incredible advancement in television culture. Even though not every part has aged well, you can still see the cultural advancements where they were. Lesbian wedding, surrogacy, single motherhood, etc. These were not topics that were typically broached in 90s television. Granted, a lot of the jokes are now outdated, and some are now considered offensive, but many parts of Friends still lives on today. On the air for a decade, with reruns still going 15+ years later, it is rare that you will find someone who has not heard of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, … Continue reading I’ll Be There For You: The One About Friends by Kelsey Miller

Wild Boar in the Cane Field

Before I start into my review, I would like to thank Book Sparks for the opportunity to get a copy of this book and the opportunity to be able to review it. This book was definitely interesting. Unfortunately, I had a very hard time getting engaged with it. While I did enjoy the story, I found my mind kept wandering and I would have to reread pages in order to remember what I had just read. I greatly enjoyed the dynamics between the different characters. I very much enjoyed the final chapter when a lot of my wanderings were finally … Continue reading Wild Boar in the Cane Field
