Book Review: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

5/5 stars My favorite book of the year so far. Full Review “When they both realized they were heartbroken enough to want the love torn from their rib cages, they touched each other with their hands and their mouths, and they forgot they wanted to be cured.” I read Weight of Feathers last year and… Continue reading Book Review: When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

Book Review: Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan

3/5 stars After reading Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda I was in the mood for another cute book. And similar to Simon this book is about a gay teen coming out to their friends and family. This book was definitely cute and contemporary, but the story wasn’t as intriguing as I hoped. I loved… Continue reading Book Review: Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan

Book Review: If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo

3.5/5 stars. Probably more of a 3 for me, but this book is so important that I rounded it up to 4 on my Goodreads page. “You can have anything,” she said, “once you admit you deserve it.” If you want to understand a trans person’s point of view, especially the danger they experience in… Continue reading Book Review: If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo

Book Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

4/5 stars “People really are like houses with vast rooms and tiny windows. And maybe it’s a good thing, the way we never stop surprising each other.” When I first started this book I thought “Okay, this is fine. Not my favorite style of writing, but it seems alright.” And then before I knew it… Continue reading Book Review: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Book Review: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

4.5 stars “You cannot fathom the distance I would travel for you.” I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. Although I shouldn’t be surprised because I love Alexandra Bracken’s writing, pacing, and characters. This is a beautiful book, the first one of a duology, that follows a talented violinist named… Continue reading Book Review: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Book Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

4.5/5 stars. I really need to stop reading sad books. WOWWWW is pretty much how I felt after reading this book. The whole time I was reading this I kept imagining what a cool dark indie film it could be. This is not a happy book by any means. This is a novel meant to… Continue reading Book Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Book Review: The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

2016 is the year I fell in love with Nicola Yoon and her books. Very rarely do I want to re-read a book immediately after finishing it, but I have felt that way about this one and also Everything, Everything. I think I love that her books are simple and don’t overcomplicate anything. Also she… Continue reading Book Review: The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
