Book Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan (The 100 #1)

Normally, I try to keep my reviews spoiler free, but for the purposes of this one, there will be spoilers. If you are here because you watch the show, what I spoil won’t be much of a surprise. I happened upon The 100, the television show, when I was browsing Netflix one day. I watchedContinue reading “Book Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan (The 100 #1)”

Audiobook Review: Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity #2)

If I had to pick a kryptonite, its World War II fiction. This setting in time is fascinating to me on several levels and it’s such a rich period that I find I don’t ever read the same story twice. Both book hangovers that I have been nursing this year were World War II narrativesContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity #2)”

Audiobook Review: Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Everyone fantasizes a little about what they would do if they were given a chance to change history. There are so many discussions in pop culture about time travel and its repercussions, and with all of that to contend with Landline by Rainbow Rowell still presents a really unique perspective on the subject. It’s almost ChristmasContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Landline by Rainbow Rowell”

Book Review: We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

 It’s no secret that the word “feminist” has become something of a dirty word as of late, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie describes the problems with that perfectly in We Should All Be Feminists. Throughout this book Chimamanda Ngozi Aichie brilliantly narrates times in her life when being a woman presented its own set of uniqueContinue reading “Book Review: We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie”

Book Review: Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal

This debut novel has probably the most misleading title ever. Kitchens of the Great Midwest is my local bookstore’s selection for the month. At first, based on the title I thought that this was a memoir, cookbook, or another genre of non-fiction, but then I found out that it was a novel and I was veryContinue reading “Book Review: Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal”

Audiobook Review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

If you ever asked me if there was a genre I don’t or wouldn’t read, I would say chick lit. Why? Something about the contrived romances, cliched plots, and characters who fall in love instantly don’t seem to do it for me. Still I was drawn to Eleanor & Park, in park because I haveContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell”

Audiobook Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #3)

I got derailed from my original TBR pile this month, but I do not regret it one bit. The last installment of The Delirium Trilogy, Requiem is just as interesting as the previous two volumes. This volume, just like Pandemonium, is written in a different format. Instead of being told only from Lena’s point of viewContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #3)”

Audiobook Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #2)

It sounds cliche, but the end of Delirium hit me like a ton of bricks. After listening to that amazing audiobook, there was only one thing to do. Buy the other two in the series from Audible and keep listening immediately. A few hours later I was listening to the amazing and talented Sarah DrewContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #2)”

Backlist Book Reviews: Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

I seem to be on a streak of thrillers as of late. First, I devoured Gone Girl with the same reluctance a five-year-old child has to spinach.  Then I got to read a galley of the exciting I Let You Go. Now, my local bookstore has chosen the Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll toContinue reading “Backlist Book Reviews: Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll”

Backlist Book Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman (If I Stay #2)

I adore endings that don’t tie life up in a perfect bow. There are times when things get closure and times when things don’t. That’s the way the world works, and for this reason, I wasn’t sure I wanted to read the conclusion to Mia and Adam’s love story. I thought the ending to IfContinue reading “Backlist Book Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman (If I Stay #2)”
