What Light, by Jay Asher

Being a big fan of Asher’s YA book Thirteen Reasons Why, I’ve had this book on my radar since it first came out. I was looking for something quick to read until the release of another book I was anticipating, so when I saw that this was relatively short, I checked it out of the […]

The Vanishing Girl, by Laura Thalassa

This book has been on my Kindle awhile, and I’ve finally gotten around to reading it. I was intrigued by the premise—about a girl who teleports in the middle of the night and a government agency who wants to exploit her ability and those of teens like her. Oh, and then there was the added […]

The Rival Pack (Werewolf High, Book Eight), by Anita Oh

Here we are, right in the middle of Lucy O’Connor’s junior year at secluded Amaris High. The books of Anita Oh’s Werewolf High series are quick reads, buoyed by strong relationships between the fun characters. This is the eighth book in the series, which makes it close to impossible for me to be completely spoiler-free […]

The Cage, by Megan Shepherd

I’m not entirely sure when I came across this 2015 release, but I know I purchased it—along with two other books—last summer using an Amazon gift card I was given. I read those other two books pretty much right away, but this one sat on my bookcase for over a year. There really wasn’t a […]

Follow Me Back, by A.V. Geiger

I had just finished a book, and I had almost a week before another highly anticipated book was going to be released, so I wanted something I could easily read in the interim. Rather than search for something new, I searched through the backlog on my Kindle. Somewhere along the way, I downloaded this book, […]

The Love Potion (Werewolf High Book Five), by Anita Oh

Author Anita Oh has been really good about getting the books in this series out quickly. As an author of my own trilogy (with the third part yet come), I am both impressed by her work ethic and jealous of her prolific nature. Though the gap between this fifth book in the series and its […]

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, by Michelle Hodkin

This book has such a fantastic hook. Narrator Mara Dyer wakes up in the hospital with no recollection of how she got there. After sneaking into an abandoned asylum with her boyfriend and two friends, the building collapsed, and she’s the only one who not only survived but is physically unharmed. Why was she spared? […]

The Love That Split the World, by Emily Henry

I added this book to my to-read list over at Goodreads shortly after it came out in January 2016. I don’t remember the exact circumstances why I added it, so I’ll take an educated guess. The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and the plot includes main character Natalie Cleary getting visions of things that aren’t there. […]

This Is Me, by C.E. Wilson

It doesn’t take too much effort to look through the review list on this blog to see that I’m a fan of author C.E. Wilson. What I like most about her work is the lens she uses to present deep or important themes. The situations in her stories fall into the speculative fiction genre, but […]

Untitled Beauty, by C.E. Wilson

I’ve read a few of author C.E. Wilson’s books over the past twelve months or so. She’s got a vivid imagination, she’s incredibly prolific with books coming out frequently, and she creates provocative worlds, characters, and situations. I have enjoyed all the books I’ve read of hers so far. A few months ago, her book […]
