The Law of Tall Girls, by Joanne Macgregor

Main character and narrator Peyton Lane is tall—almost 6’1”—and fed up with the fact that everyone asks her lame questions such as “What’s the weather like up there?” or “Do you play basketball?” and the like. Even more upsetting is that some much shorter girls date tall boys, essentially taking them away from tall girls […]

Treading Water, by Ginna Moran

I had the pleasure of diving into Diving Under, the first part of Ginna Moran’s Spark of Life series, back in November. It tells the story of Ava Adair, recently graduated from high school, whose life changes when she’s accidentally knocked overboard into the ocean and saved by a hunky and sweet merman named Carter. […]

This Is Where It Ends, by Marieke Nijkamp

In the past few years, I’ve added a lot of YA books to my to-read list that I doubt I’ll get to them all. One of the advantages of having a to-read list at Goodreads is that I receive notifications whenever there’s a discount on the eBook edition of one of those books. And that’s […]

The Time Loop (Werewolf High Book Six), by Anita Oh

Author Anita Oh’s previous book in this series came out in mid-July, so I wasn’t expecting to see the newest book so soon. It was released just a little over a month after the one before it, so when I stumbled upon it—and saw its title—I was honestly thrilled. Let’s start with a brief recap […]

Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon

There’s been buzz about this book and author since it first came out in 2015, and you may have seen previews for the recent film adaptation. Because of the high overall rating it has, I didn’t hesitate to pick it up when I saw it for 25% off at a local supermarket. I figured I’d […]

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak

So it’s that time of year, when my school chooses a summer reading book that the entire student body will read. Though it’s not summer vacation yet, teachers were asked to come up with activities—from all different subjects—to accompany the students’ reading of the chosen book. This summer, the students will be reading The Book […]

Cruel and Unusual, by C.E. Wilson

As a fellow self-published author, I am both awestruck and envious of C.E. Wilson. Her output of work since I’ve started blogging is impressive to say the least, and I wish I could be as prolific as she is. I’m just as amazed by her imaginative plots and characters as I am by their integration […]

The Soul Bond (Werewolf High Book Four), by Anita Oh

It’s my last review of 2016, so I decided to return to the YA fiction equivalent of comfort food. Something familiar that would tie me over until the new year. I’ve already read the first three books in Anita Oh’s Werewolf High series, and since the fourth one just came out, it made for a […]

The Girl in the Time Machine, by Debra Chapoton

I recently got an Amazon gift card, and I used it to order a book that I really want to read, but I have to wait for it to arrive. Also, I just finished (and loved) a book that I really wanted to read, but I’m still working on writing that review. So I searched through […]

The Promise, by C.E. Wilson

If you’ve been following my reviews, you should know by now that I’m a fan of author C.E. Wilson’s work, particularly her tales of size-disparate people. Whether it be the giant world of To Nowhere, or the dystopian tale with a twist The Boy with Words, you know you’re in for a well-thought-out story with […]
