This book was on my radar because I was looking for something to meet a reading challenge prompt of: a novel by a Trans or non-binary author. Thanks to Goodreads, I found this book and saw the amazing reviews it had. It ended up being a tough, emotional, absorbing look at what it’s like to be Trans in the world today. I would highly recommend it.
Three books into this series and I think I like this one more than the previous books, but that could be due to my love for Cletus Winston, the best Winston brother (in my humble opinion.) I so enjoyed this unconventional love story and would be more than happy to see an entire spinoff series with Cletus and Jen. These books just keep getting better and better and I highly recommend it.
I read this book as part of the 2019 Pop Sugar reading challenge but it had been on my radar for a while. A few friends read it and enjoyed it and I was looking for something light and fun to read. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised I enjoyed this book as much as I did and think that anyone looking for quick, fun, romance would like it as well.
This is the second book in the Winston Brothers series and I can’t believe how much I enjoy reading about this family. Penny Reid does a great job of making sure you are interested in the main characters while still learning about the other brothers so you, as the reader, can’t wait to pick up the next book in the series. This book was very fun and I would highly recommend it.
Werewolves? Baristas? Magic? Gay best friend? Young Adult? I had been wanting to read Moonstruck for a while, ever since I heard about it really, because of all the awesome things I had heard about it and the themes it explored. While I am glad I finally got to experience, I found that the idea and concept turned out better than the reality. I thought it was fun and a quick read but ultimately wanted more.
I am always on the lookout for new graphic novels by authors I haven’t read so I was excited to read Sleepless. I didn’t know much about the story beforehand so it was a nice surprise to find out that I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I can’t wait to read volume two!
The Baby-Sitter’s Club was one of my all-time favorite book series when I was growing up so I was very happy when I saw that a graphic novel version of “Kristy’s Great Idea” was being made. I can vividly remember checking each new book out from the library and reading well past my bedtime with the help of a flashlight, hoping my mom wouldn’t know (she always did). She also took me and my sister to meet Ann M. Martin and it was my first experience with meeting an author. This book brought me right back to my childhood and I am happy knowing that a new generation of kids will be able to enjoy these stories.
This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I wanted to read it based on the “Dexter meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith” description I was seeing everywhere but I have to say that it didn’t feel like either of those to me. While there is murder and a husband and wife dynamic, this book felt like a MUCH, MUCH, darker “Gone Girl.” I am going to recommend this to people with a caveat…you need to be comfortable with reading a book about horrible people who commit murder for no other reason than the thrill of it.
In general, I am a fan of Sci-Fi books that involve alternate realities or characters that see things but don’t know if what they are seeing is actually there or just their imagination. (Is there a sub-genre out there for this type of book?) Kate Hope Day has managed to write a book that contains these elements disguised as a family drama that leaves the reader satisfied but also wanting more. I could see this book being a great pick for book clubs because there is a lot to discuss and dissect.
