  • Review: Solo

    Well, I need to learn to read it seems. When I grabbed “Solo” for review, I didn't read the full blurb and details. I didn't see where it said this book was in poetic style. Go me! Well, I am kind of glad I didn't see that this was written like that....

  • Review: You're Welcome, Universe

  • Review: Just Fly Away

    “Just Fly Away” is a book I thought I was going to end up not finishing. As the ending came near I ended up liking it more than I thought I was going to. Lucy's relationship with her gramps really came through during the story. I really enjoyed how this...

  • Review: Becoming a Legend The Blue Eyes Trilogy, #2

  • Review: Letters to the Lost

    This book, OMG!! I didn't know if this was going to be a win for me. The contemporary YA genre is so hit and miss for me that I usually go into them with the thought that I won't be finishing the book. So when I find something like this that I'm just...

  • Review: Recruits Recruits, #1

    I really wanted to like “Recruits”. The premise was very interesting but the writing just didn't work for me. The teens are eighteen years old. So for me, I think this should have been written as a high young adult to even new adult, but the way the story...

  • Review: Hello, Universe

    “Hello, Universe” is a great book. It’s sweet and about friendship. I really liked this one and I don't like many middle grade stories anymore. “Hello, Universe” is a great book and should be added to the school library shelves. It’s about standing up...

  • Review: Seven Days of You

  • Review: Gardenia

    For me the cover to this one says it all. I was so excited to read this story about a girl who knew how long everyone had to live. It sounded exciting and wondrous but what I found was a slow story with almost no real direction. I ended up putting it...

  • Review: Allegedly

    “Allegedly” covers the court system and how African Americans are treated within it. It does a great job with this. However, it does also have a lot of issues, in my opinion. Within the first few pages we have the three quotes. "You'd think someone would...

  • Review: The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland

    “The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland” for me was a mess. It was manic to the extreme and I just couldn't get into it. I felt very confused and didn't connect with any of the characters. The story felt very bipolar and it just didn't work out for me.
