Mini Reviews: The Bedlam Stacks by Natasha Pulley, Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

My Thoughts: The Bedlam Stacks is something I thought I’d really enjoy! I had seen good reviews and it sounded like a really beautiful fantasy story. Unfortunately this one missed the mark for me. The writing is good, I will say that. The descriptions are beautiful and the world is unique. However, I felt zero connection to the main character and as a result, honestly didn’t care about his journey or mission. In fact, I quickly […]

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 […]

Review: The Beast Is An Animal by Peternelle Van Arsdale

Why Did I Read? I was drawn in from the beautiful cover and soul eaters — it just sounded creepy and totally intriguing. My Thoughts: I’m just fairly disappointed after finishing the book. It started off really well — it had a thrilling/creepy atmosphere and I was drawn into the premise. It reminded me of a mix between the movie the Village and historical Salem witch trials and I was really enjoying the feel of the […]

Review: Hold Me Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

My Thoughts: I’m not going to lie, I was a little wary heading into this one. The majority of my friends on GR had rated this pretty low and I was skeptical. However, I think I enjoyed it more than most! The premise really drew me in — crime families dealing in illegal organ transplants and organ trafficking? I’m in! I thought the set up was really interesting because while these crime families are making a lot […]
