Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

One Line: Such a touching and emotional read. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This was my first book by Kirby and I really liked it. Everyone deals with loss in different ways and there’s no absolute way to do it. For Quinn, she coped with the loss of Trent by needing to know where his organs were now and how they helped those lives he saved. I can definitely… Read more »

Audiobook Review: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Audiobook Review: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: Even better then the first. I loved Lara Jean and family! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I think I liked this book a lot better than the first. I was definitely invested more. There just seemed to be more going on in this book, more of Lara Jean’s development and growth, and more of the Song family. Just more! Everything about this book was sweet, cute, and… Read more »

Book Review: The Leveller by Julia Durango

Book Review: The Leveller by Julia Durango

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★½

One Line: Not as action-packed as I was hoping for. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I always get intrigued by a “virtual world” setting and I truly believe this might be in our future someday. A lot of the games I like to play focus on world-building, kind of like Sim City. I thought it was pretty cool that Durango had a character like Nixy who made a living… Read more »

Book Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Book Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

One Line: I loved everything about this book. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve read a few kidnapping books in my past and I have to say that this might be one of the better ones. Most of the time we get the story from the one who was kidnapped, so it’s interesting that Benway told it from the friend’s perspective. With that being said, I loved that she… Read more »

Blog Tours, Giveaways, Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★★

One Line: Sweet jeebus, Miranda, what a stellar story you’ve created here! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Jesse’s Girl is, hands down, one of the best books I’ve read this year, maybe ever. I could not stop reading, in fact, I couldn’t stop smiling the whole time I read this book. I seriously want to grab a finished copy and hug it, I loved it so much. Gah! I… Read more »

Book Review: Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

Book Review: Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★½

One Line: Not exactly what I was hoping for, but still a pretty good read. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Hold Me Like a Breath wasn’t the book I thought it was going to be, but it wasn’t bad. I was hoping for more dealings into this crime lord world, but instead her family is made up of pretty sound and reasonable business people. I felt like I didn’t… Read more »

Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Book Review: Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: More contemporary than fantasy, so it was a nice attempt at a magical book. In My Opinion: Worth a try! Becoming Jinn didn’t turn out quite like I was expecting. I was hoping for more from the Jinn/fantasy side of the story and instead we get a more contemporary story than anything else. Yes, the Jinn elements are there, but it’s more so parlor tricks and we’re not… Read more »

Book Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Book Review: The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: A well-paced, humorous tale of witches, witch hunters, and other magical creatures. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Witch Hunter was a surprisingly good read. As much as I love reading a book about witches, they’re usually a hit or miss with me, more times it’s a miss. Luckily, this was a hit! The book had a decent amount of humor in it, which when added to the… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Audiobook Review: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

One Line: A captivating and beautiful story that I really enjoyed. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This was undoubtedly one of THE most hyped up books this year and I’m happy to say it lived up to its hype, for the most part. Ahdieh created a very interesting and intricate world and her characters were engaging and fierce. It was hard to follow at times because Ahdieh uses a… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Audiobook Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Audiobook Reviews, Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★

One Line: A fun and cute story with an adorkable main character. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This is one of those Contemporary books that I normally wouldn’t care about in the slightest, but luckily Simon was a fun character whose head I enjoyed being inside of, so his thoughts saved the book for me. Nothing much happens, it’s basically about Simon’s daily life with his friends and family… Read more »
