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 […]

Review: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee

Why Did I Read? I had heard a lot of early praise for it from some fellow bloggers! I was intrigued! My Thoughts: I really like historical fiction and this was such a fun filled romp with Monty and this friends! I like to think of it as… a 17th century spin on the movie Eurotrip with a more serious note. (Has anyone else seen that movie? It’s hilarious, a bit ridiculous but lots of fun […]

On top of all that, his voice is just so soothing to […]

My Thoughts: Firstly, I just have to say that I feel like this series is so underrated! It is such an intense, amazing series and I want more people to check it out! There’s historical fiction, action, fae, steampunk and […]

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Why Did I Read? It sounds so magical and exciting! It sounded just like something I’d love. My Thoughts: Caraval is seriously one of the most hyped books of 2017. It was hyped last year at BEA and the hype only grew as more people read and raved about it. I really meant to get to this way earlier, it was one of my top books from BEA that I wanted! Anyway, I’m kind of conflicted […]
