Bullet Reviews Ft. Control Freakz, Dare Mighty Things, & American Panda

Title Template

Hello everyone! Today I have some bullet (mini) reviews over three vastly different books. I’ll start with Control Freakz by Michael Evans, Dare Mighty Things by Heather Kaczynski, then American Panda by Gloria Chao. Control Freakz was a slightly disappointing dystopian book written by a high school student. Dare Mighty Things was an interesting sci-fi read full of strange twists, and American Panda was a contemporary romance about a super smart Taiwanese American! It has been kind of an “eh” reading month for me, but maybe you can find something new to add to your TBR! Continue reading

Series Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

img_1990

Hello, fellow book friends! Recently, (as in several years ago…) one of my friends suggested that I read Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Then we found out a fourth book was coming out in March 2018, and thus I decided to read the series and see what all her fangirling was all about. Let’s just say… she was right! So, I am combining all of their reviews into one post (except for the newest book, Restore Me). Are you ready to discover an incredible series? Continue reading

So, here are the books that I have either bought or borrowed from the library this past month.  Continue reading

Review: P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

25486998P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

Publisher: Point

Release Date:  July 26, 2016

Genre: YA Contemporary & Romance

While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!

Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…


P.S. I Like You by Kasie West is an incredibly charming, witty novel about a high school girl, Lily. I instantly could relate to her, yet I was a bit jealous of her! She had a wonderful friend, an interesting family, and an intriguing potential love interest. The book is light and funny, something difficult to put down, and I am eager to share it with you!

Review: Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant

31423684Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant

Publisher: Kids Can Press

Release Date: April 4, 2017

Genre: YA Contemporary & Romance

The more I touch someone, the more I can see and understand, and the more I think I can help. But that’s my mistake. I can’t help. You can’t fix people like you can solve a math problem.

Math genius. Freak of nature. Loner.

Eva Walker has literally one friend—if you don’t count her quadruplet three-year-old-siblings—and it’s not even because she’s a math nerd. No, Eva is a loner out of necessity, because everyone and everything around her is an emotional minefield. All she has to do is touch someone, or their shirt, or their cell phone, and she can read all their secrets, their insecurities, their fears.

Sure, Eva’s “gift” comes in handy when she’s tutoring math and she can learn where people are struggling just by touching their calculators. For the most part, though, it’s safer to keep her hands to herself. Until she meets six-foot-three, cute-without-trying Zenn Bennett, who makes that nearly impossible.

Zenn’s jacket gives Eva such a dark and violent vision that you’d think not touching him would be easy. But sometimes you have to take a risk…


Thank you to Edelweiss and Kids Can Press for the eARC! 

I am super excited to review this book because it was incredibly awesome, and it is the first ARC that I have been approved for!! Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant focuses on Eva, an exceptional math student, and her ability to feel another person’s feelings just by touching them. Continue reading

The Reading Quest Update + Reviews

img_1531

Hello, hello! We are halfway (and a litte more) through #TheReadingQuest hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, and I think I’m doing pretty good! I’m sure there are people reading far more than me, but considering the speed in which I usually read, I’m quite happy. (During this Quest, I am reading each book in about four days, when usually it would take me over a week with school going on.) Continue reading

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a lovely day, and maybe I can make it better by sharing two of my newest favorite books! I read these two (Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia and When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon) back to back, and I fell in love almost instantly. I haven’t always been into the contemporary/romance stuff, but recently I have found them to be light and fun and really enjoyable! So, even if you are unsure of the genre, I would encourage you to give these a try! Continue reading
