Review: Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

My Thoughts: I don’t generally gravitate toward the heavier contemporaries. I don’t really know why, I guess because when I read a contemporary I’m looking for something lighter? Anyway, I don’t read heavier ones often, I tend to be pretty picky when it comes to the more serious ones. That being said, I’m really glad I read Letters to the Lost! Juliet’s mother died and she is coping by writing her letters at her grave but who […]

Audiobook Review: The Upside of Unrequited Love by Becky Albertalli

The Sound: I thought the narrator Arielle DeLisle did a fantastic job! Her voice for Molly was pretty much how I would imagine it and she did great distinctions between different characters. I’d definitely listen to other audiobooks by her! The Story: Let me start off by saying there was quite a bit I liked in The Upside of Unrequited Love but I just really wasn’t a fan of the romance and a lot of aspects surrounding it […]

Dear Jenny Han…

So recently I binge read the entire To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han. Here’s the thing. I am and always will be a fantasy gal. Contemporaries aren’t my go to so I was a little nervous heading into the series. I couldn’t have been more  surprised by how much I loved it! I had so many thoughts and feelings as I read through these books and I think the best way for […]

Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Why Did I Read? You’ve Got Mail is a favorite movie so I was all over this! My thoughts: I loved the set up of this book! Bailey is close friends with Alex — but they’ve never met. They only know each other through a film forum and emails and so when Bailey moves to stay with her dad (who lives in the same town as Alex), she figures this is perfect for scouting out this […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Timekeeper by Tara Sims and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

I really didn’t know much about Timekeeper going into it but oh I was so pleasantly surprised as I got swept up in this story! It ended up being my FIRST five star read of the year! I’m also so glad I listened to it on audio because the narration was so amazing! I seriously loved it. In Timekeeper we are in an alternate London where there are clock towers that regulate time — literally. If something happens […]
