  Review: Payback on Poplar Lane by Margaret Mincks is so cute. Rachel is a very shy middle school girl that lives next door to Peter Gronkowski. Peter Gronkowski is a self proclaimed entrepreneur that starts a new business almost every week.  When Peter starts up a new fortune telling gig, he needs to hire an unpaid intern. Rachel applies for the job. Peter takes things too far and so Rachel ends up becoming Peter’s competitor rather than his intern. This is definitely a fun story about values and friendship. I found myself enjoying this story because it showed how […]

Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen is incredible. This may end up being my 2018 favorite. This is my first book by A.C.

Everless by Sara Holland is so good. This story was so much more than what I was expecting and I really enjoyed it. Everless starts out a bit slow but I found that it began to pick up the pace as we were introduced to the castle of Everless. Once inside Everless, I feel like there was so much going on. Jules lives in a world where time is drawn from your blood and is turned into currency. Punishment comes from your blood. You pay your bills with your blood. It is quite interesting to see how these people are […]

Akata Warrior Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

  REVIEW:  Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor is a fabulous sequel to Akata Wich. Sunny Nwazue is a bit older and more grown up. Okorafor brings a bit of a more dreamy and broaden world in Akata Warrior. This sequel focuses a lot more on Sunny discovering who she is as a Leopard Person and what that really means. She learns how to rely on herself and not just the powers taht she is given. I really enjoyed the continued growth that Sunny shows and the different things that she learns about herself. This book does not bring a lot […]

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melisaa Bashardoust is magical and addictive. I really enjoyed this loose retelling of Snow White. Bashardoust brings us two strong female characters that share their story. I loved that this book has two points of view. I really fell for both Mina and Lynet. Let’s talk about the characters! The Men: I will be brief. They are terrible. The Huntsman is probably the nicest one but well he is not idea. In more ways than one. The King is so infuriating. He is selfish, oblivious, mean, and well stupid. He makes such a […]
