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: 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
