T’was Brilliant I Say! // Blog Tour: Never Missing, Never Found by Amanda Panitch

My Thoughts: Having not read Amanda’s debut novel, Damage Done – which by the way, I will be remedying soon! I wasn’t sure what to expect. I love YA thrillers, but there’s this lack of oomph that really gets me going lately when it comes to the genre, so needless to say I was nervous. Fear not, my friends! This book was brilliant. No, if’s and’s or buts, just brilliant. The writing […]

Emotionally Wrecking // Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

My Thoughts: I first came across Salt to the Sea while at the SE-YA festival in March. Ms. Sepetys was there, and while I didn’t get a chance to meet her, or buy one of her books, there were a lot of people standing around talking about them. There were many other times this book kept popping up everywhere but when it was picked as the Book of the Month for […]

YOU Convinced Me To Read…. The Wrath & the Dawn // And I Finally Read It!

Hype 1-1/2, Me 1/2. (LOL) Dang, took me long enough, right? Only 3 months overdue, hmm? I’m picky about retellings as a standard rule. Which now that I think about it, it is kind of dumb excuse in this case because I am not wholly familiar with the story in which this stems from. Have I heard of it? Yes. But I only know the basics of the story. Anyway, besides […]

 A Letter to Joe from You by Caroline Kepnes

Dear Joe, I like you. I hate admitting that out loud – but there’s something about your charismatic voice & determination that draws me in. Horrified as I was, I was seriously obsessed with your story; I just HAD to know more. I had to know what you’d do next… I had to finish. I freaking sympathized with you. On MORE than one occasion! This is scary. See, what really makes […]
