“The Hate U Give” Review: What is there to say, really?

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Balzer + Bray: 2017. Ok. I honestly don't know how to even write this review. Usually I have at least a little bit of insight to share during a book review, and if I don't, I don't write a review. So. Why am I reviewing this book, then? TBH,… Continue reading “The Hate U Give” Review: What is there to say, really?

Review: Maybe a Fox

Maybe a Fox by Kathi Appelt and Alison McGhee. Atheneum, 2016. I picked up this book because I needed a bit of lighter reading after finishing The Circle by Dave Eggers. I was also hankering for some middle grade. My pick was Maybe a Fox, which I picked up because it seemed like a good winter read, and I was… Continue reading Review: Maybe a Fox

Review: The Circle

The Circle by Dave Eggers. McSweeney's, 2013. So I read The Circle. The Circle is about an early-20-something named Mae who gets hired at the biggest, baddest tech company in Silicon Valley: the Circle. Imagine that Google and Facebook had a baby and basically owned all the information on the internet. That's the Circle. As you might imagine,… Continue reading Review: The Circle

Thoughts on the “Fantastic Beasts” screenplay

I read the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay a few days after the film came out, but I hadn't posted about it yet because I don't really have all that much to say about it, surprisingly. First, let's take a moment to appreciate just how drop-dead gorgeous this book is. MinaLima is the greatest.… Continue reading Thoughts on the “Fantastic Beasts” screenplay

Review: Welcome to Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor. Harper Perennial: 2015. It's a book review? Whaaaat? Yes that's right, a book review! (And it's spoiler-free!) Pleasure reading has been slow going lately because I've been doing a lot of school reading that's beyond what's assigned (*nerd*), and the book I'm currently working on… Continue reading Review: Welcome to Night Vale

On the Other Side by Carrie Hope Fletcher. Sphere, 2016. Check out this gorgeous gorgeous cover. I'm a bit obsessed with this cover. But.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2016. I got this ARC from winning the Barnes & Noble B-Fest trivia contest as part of my FirstInLine membership.
