Review: Fairest

Fairest by Marissa Meyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars And now I’m torn over the villain… I think that this book brilliantly shows how it is possible to both pity and loathe a person at the same time. Levana and her sister are both entirely despicable, yet at times I certainly felt bad for […]

Review: Better off Friends

Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg My rating: 5 of 5 stars When I saw that this book was pitched as “WHEN HARRY MET SALLY . . . for teens”, I was both very excited and very nervous. You see, I adore WHEN HARRY MET SALLY and I thought “There is NO way someone could […]

Review: K-9

K-9 by Rohan Gavin My rating: 4 of 5 stars *Thank you to Bloomsbury USA Children’s Publishing and NetGalley for providing me with a digital ARC copy of this book for review!* This would have been a 3/3.5 star review were it not for those last two-ish chapters. I think I enjoyed this book even […]

Review: Both of Me

Both of Me by Jonathan Friesen My rating: 4 of 5 stars **A big thanks to Zonderkidz-Books and NetGalley for providing me with a digital ARC copy of this novel.** I went into this book fairly blind.

Review: The Sham

The Sham by Ellen Allen My rating: 4 of 5 stars *Note: I was provided a digital ARC of this novel by the author in exchange for an honest review* This book…was not quite what I expected. While I have not read the Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin, I can imagine this book would […]

Review: Traitor’s Blade

Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell My rating: 4 of 5 stars What a fun, fun ride of a novel. I remember first downloading this digital ARC copy and really not being sure what to expect — in case you’re wondering: it’s tone is basically the humour of THE THREE MUSKETEERS meets the political intrigue […]

Review: Fevre Dream

Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is it. This. Is. It. I have found it. I have found my favourite vampire novel. All these years of searching and reading through the good, the bad, and the sparkly — and I have triumphed at last! Granted, this doesn’t mean […]

Review: Landline

Landline by Rainbow Rowell My rating: 5 of 5 stars I love Rainbow Rowell. I love her characters and their stories; I love how achingly real their desires and wishes and dreams are; and I love how easy it is to slip into the brief glimpses of their (admittedly fictional) lives that Ms. Rowell dictates […]

Review: Suspicion

Suspicion by Alexandra Monir My rating: 4 of 5 stars A big thank you to NetGalley and Random House for approving me as a reader for this digital ARC. Most of the YA Paranormal-Romance genre does not catch my eye, but there was a particular pitch-note from the publisher that made me want to read […]
