I found this discussion post on the Goodreads group, though it was actually a topic from last year. Despite that, I decided to give it a try since spring is right around the corner and I wanted to talk about some of my favorite spring books. These are also books that I would recommend readingContinue reading “Top 5 Wednesday: Spring Reads”
It’s kind of cliche to say that I read a book based on its cover, but it is something that I guiltily do. There’s a good chance that if the cover draws me in, I’ll read at least the summary on the book jacket. And if I like what I read in the summary, thenContinue reading “Why I Pick Up a Book | Book Discussion”
I wasn’t necessarily tagged by anyone to do this tag, but I saw it a while back over on Sara’s blog, The Bibliophagist, and I decided to give it a try myself.
The following is from Goodreads: It’s been years since seventeen-year-old Becca Hart believed in true love. But when her former best friend teases her for not having a boyfriend, Becca impulsively pretends she’s been secretly seeing someone. Brett Wells has it all. Being captain of the football team and one of the most popular guysContinue reading “The Upside of Falling by Alex Light | Book Review”
So the last month or so, I have become addicted to playing on my Nintendo Switch. The only way I’ve been getting any reading done is if I listen to a book on audio while I play. Which is fine, but now I’ve been struggling to get through physical books because all I want toContinue reading “Why I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like…”
The following is from Goodreads: YESJamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state senate candidate—as long as he’s behind the scenes. When it comes to speaking to strangers (or, let’s face it, speaking at allto almost anyone), Jamie’s a choke artist. There’s no way he’d ever knock on doors to ask people for theirContinue reading “Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed | Book Review”
There aren’t many books that I want to get to this month, and I’m thinking about reading mostly YA contemporary books. I guess it was because I finished last month reading Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed, and I’ve been in the mood for those kind of books. And none ofContinue reading “Books To Read in March | 2020”
For February being such a short month, I managed to get a decent amount of reading done. Though that extra day tacked on at the end didn’t necessarily help by the way. I probably would have gotten the same amount read as any other month. That is, I read a total of five books, butContinue reading “February 2020 Wrap Up”
There aren’t many tropes in YA books that I can think of that I actually like. Mostly one that I can’t stand and maybe that’s a discussion for another day. I’m going to try to talk about my favorite YA tropes. Again, there aren’t many.
The following is from Goodreads: When his dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town, Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah. Even worse, his father’s failed suicide attempt leaves Rob and his mother responsible for his care. Everyone thinks of Maegan as a typical overachiever, but she has a secret ofContinue reading “Call It What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer | Book Review”
