Book Review: ‘Counteract’ by Tracy Lawson

Counteract by Tracy Lawson was a book that caught my eye the moment it was presented to me, with a dystopian plotline different from any other I’ve read in recent times, and I couldn’t wait to dig in. But in the end, the novel as a whole fell kind of flat and left me with a “meh” taste in my mouth. In Counteract, Lawson creates a future America that isn’t very hard to imagine. The […]

Book Review: ‘Five Day..

Book Review: ‘Five Days in January’ by R.T. Lowe

Five Days in January by R.T. Lowe is just as thrilling and gripping as its predecessor, The Felix Chronicles: Freshman, and it only takes about half the pages to accomplish this. With a much smaller book, Lowe comes back to this second installment with the same enthusiasm and attention to detail that made Freshman so great, a feat that many sequels can’t achieve. It remains fast-paced but detailed fully, never leaving you in the dark, […]

Book Review: ‘Twisted’ by Hannah Jayne

Twisted by Hannah Jayne is one of the most frustrating books I have read this summer, and that makes me really mad. Honestly, this mystery had the potential to be incredibly superb, but instead it fell victim to the infamous serial killer known as The Rushed Ending. On a serious note, Twisted, the story of a girl plagued by her father’s past as an accused serial killer known as the Wife Collector, sounded seriously creepy. […]

Book Review: ‘We Own the Night’ by Ashley Poston

We Own the Night by Ashley Poston is the kind of feel-good YA novel that most young-at-heart readers can get behind. It’s witty, youthful, and chock full of fresh-from-high school drama. But Poston included a lot of heart in her second novel in the Radio Hearts series, and that’s what makes We Own the Night so good. The novel follows Iggy, aka Ingrid North, aka Niteowl, a girl embarking on her summer after high school […]

Book Review: ‘The Memory Book’ by Lara Avery

The Memory Book by Lara Avery was a delightful and heartbreaking surprise of a novel. Going into it, I wasn’t really sure just where I was going to fall on the love-it-or-hate-it scale, especially after my experience with Avery’s other novel A Million Miles Away, but I am totally team LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS now. Avery crafted a real gem with this novel, and I think there are a lot of people who will fall in […]

Book Review: ‘The Unexpected Everything’ by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything was a book on my MUST HAVE IMMEDIATELY list since its cover was released, because what book doesn’t scream best summer read EVER when there are puppies and ice cream trucks on the front? And honestly, just as all of Matson’s other novels, it’s perfection on paper. Andie, an intense, do-it-all, Congressman’s daughter, is the character The Unexpected Everything is centered on. She’s driven, focused, and completely out of her element when […]
