Book Review

After reading and loving Orphan Island, I found myself instantly drawn to My Jasper June. When I started to read it, it drew me in – the story of a lonely girl named Leah looking for someone to connect with and running from the grief that has overtaken her household and changed her relationship with everyone she knows. Meeting Jasper is life-changing and I spent the book wondering if there was something truly magical about her character. She’s able to transform Leah into a person with purpose and give her something to focus on that is new instead of dwelling […]

Again but Better Book Revie..

Again but Better Book Review

Okay, so I went into this book knowing that it has been getting mixed reviews but I figured it’s a short contemporary about a girl studying abroad I will probably like it. That was unfortunately not the case, Shane is without a doubt one of the most annoying and frustrating main characters that I have ever read about. I honestly thought that she was sixteen because of how immature she acts. The fact that she has the audacity to go after a guy even after she knows that he has a girlfriend really tells you all you need to know […]

With the Fire on High Book ..

With the Fire on High Book Review

This book was such an amazing and quick read. The way Emoni talks about food is tantalizing, it honestly makes you hungry just reading it. I saw a lot of myself in this book cause I only had one really good friend in high school and I have always also loved to cook. Not quite as intensely as Emoni but I could definitely understand her passion for it. I loved the way the relationship was taken slow and allowed to develop at a speed that was comfortable for both people involved. Also I loved the moments seeing how Emoni parents […]

Sorcery Of Thorns Book Revi..

Sorcery Of Thorns Book Review

Wow, what a ride. I loved the way books and libraries were talked about in here. For books to be truly alive and to have personalities and emotions was incredible. I could defintely see myself living in this world. The characters in here are so relatable. Elisabeth is actually me being a child of the library, and the way she cares for books is just uncanny. I really loved Silas like I would read a 500 page book about just Silas without a doubt. He really reminded me of Sebastian from Black Butler, not sure if that was a purposeful […]
