Reread Review: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

I used to do these reread reviews a few years ago when I was doing a reread challenge and decided I missed doing them! I reread a lot more now and thought it’d be fun to quickly talk about them!

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 […]

There’s historical fiction, action, fae, steampunk and […]

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 […]
