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 […]

The Flatshare Book Review

The Flatshare Book Review

This was such an adorable romance book with some heavy AF topics throughout. There is issues with a past relationship that was emotionally abusive and there is also some heavy family drama as well. I found this book super relatable, and it definitely made me reevaluate a relationship I used to be in and realize that it was also emotionally abusive. I really am starting to love this genre and it’s really nice having characters that are closer to my age than most of the books I read which are YA fantasy. (Don’t get me wrong I LOVE YA.) But […]

Walk the Edge Book Review

Walk the Edge Book Review

I AM SCREAMING. I loved this book so much. I would just sit and listen to the audiobook which is something I literally never do cause its hard for me to sit still but I was doing it cause I just needed to finish this book. I love Razor and Breanna, I’m not sure if I like them more than Oz and Emily who I really loved but there was something about Razor that really hit me. I think I also really related to Breanna cause I was labelled as a freak in school and I wish I could have […]
