ARC Review: Writing Gatsby

Genre: Nonfiction Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ After reading William Elliott Hazelgrove’s books about the Titanic and Cassie Chadwick, I was so excited to see he was publishing a book about F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby! The book was certainly enjoyable, but didn’t necessarily live up to the other two I’ve read by Hazelgrove. I absolutelyContinue reading “ARC Review: Writing Gatsby”

ARC Review: The Liar’s Crown

Genre: Fairytale Retelling Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ As usual, as soon as I heard the word “retelling” I immediately requested The Liar’s Crown by Abigail Owen on NetGalley. While I’m not typically a huge fan of romantic fantasy, I absolutely loved this book! Meren is a princess, but no one is allowed to know about her. ThereContinue reading “ARC Review: The Liar’s Crown”

ARC Review: Not Good for Maidens

Genre: YA Horror/Fantasy Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Not Good for Maidens by Tori Bovalino was off-the-scales impressive! I have not read The Devil Makes Three, so I was certainly blown away by the talent and skill Bovalino showed throughout the entirety of Not Good for Maidens! This wonderful novel switches between two POVs; May who had aContinue reading “ARC Review: Not Good for Maidens”

ARC Review: Love Radio

Genre: YA Romance Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ Love Radio by Ebony LaDelle is an adorable romance novel about Dani, a girl who has basically given up on love, and Prince, a DJ who tries to convince Dani that he can make her fall in love with him after just 3 dates. Dani wants nothing to do withContinue reading “ARC Review: Love Radio”

ARC Review: We All Fall Down

Genre: YA Fantasy Rating: ⭐ I was so excited to read We All Fall Down by Rose Szabo after reading an excerpt from the book. Sadly, it ended up being largely disappointing as a whole.

Essentially, the book is about a girl named Adele,Continue reading “Book Review: Red Wolf”

Book Review: Not Here to Be Liked

Genre: YA Romance Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ You know how there are some books that slightly incorporate feminism into the story and other books that take it 1,000 times further and feminism takes over the book? Well, Not Here to Be Liked by Michelle Quach definitely falls into the latter category, and I’m all for it! ThisContinue reading “Book Review: Not Here to Be Liked”
