The premise was, but the way the story captures your attention and holds it tightly is all there. I really enjoyed this book. The whole time I read this I kept thinking and dreaming about what it… Read more »

One Line: Completely unputdownable! Such a fantastic and amazing book. In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Nicola Yoon surprised me with her first book, Everything, Everything. I really enjoyed that one.

Book Review – Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

Book Review – Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: Some good moments, but not my fave from Katie. In My Opinion: Worth a try! After my mixed thoughts on Nowhere But Here, I was hoping this series would be redeemed with Walk the Edge, and while there were certainly entertaining moments, overall, I’m very blase about this series in general. So much unnecessary drama! Right from the start, I could not stand Breanna’s family, if you could… Read more »
