Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

My Thoughts: There are some books that leave you breathless. Their words leave their mark on you and you are left with no adequate words to describe it, and how it made you feel. Girl in Pieces, is one of those books… it’s just so honest, raw and emotionally draining but beautiful, too. If I could reach in this story and hug all the characters, I would. But I would hold onto Charlie […]

The Lost and the Found by Cat Clarke

My Thoughts: When you love a particular genre, you tend to read more of it, yes? And the more you read of said genre, the most subtle clues you pick up on, and just see coming. I think many readers can attest to that. So, when you see the outcome of a situation so clearly so early in the book, it can leave you either disappointed, or it won’t bother you […]

A Bittersweet Ending to a Beloved Series // The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson

My Thoughts: There’s always that moment when you finish a beloved series where you go through a tidal wave of emotion. Sadness. Heartbreak. Glee. Sadness, again. (I also believe the 5 stages of grief may also apply.) Whatever emotions one does feel, it’s always sad to see a series end. (They are also the hardest to review, but alas.) What I loved most about The Beauty of Darkness is how […]
