P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han | Review

I did it: I actually continued on with a series! It’s been quite some time since I’ve actually followed through with a series, mostly because I just didn’t have the time because of all my coursework. But the summer was the best time to catch up on all of my reading, and I ended up… Continue reading P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han | Review

THE PRINCESS DIARIES by Meg Cabot | Review

It's confession time, folks: I am twenty-two years old and this summer was my first time reading The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. Now, some of you may be thinking, Well, Holly, that's not so bad. But it gets worse: before reading this book I had only ever seen the second Princess Diaries movie, not even the first one. *cue gasps… Continue reading THE PRINCESS DIARIES by Meg Cabot | Review

THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS by Ann Brashares | Review

It’s time to shout it from the rooftops, folks: I HAVE FINALLY READ THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS.

THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen | Review

The first time I read The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen was back in 2013. Although I distinctly remember liking it because of the ending (which I will spoil in this review, so be warned!), I didn’t really remember much of the rest of the plot when I picked it up a second time this summer. I… Continue reading THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen | Review

As I scrolled through the audio books available for me to download on Overdrive before my long flight to England, one title (and subtitle) caught my attention: Lit Up: One Reporter. Three Schools. Twenty-four Books That Can Change Lives. by David Denby. How could I resist? David Denby, an American journalist and film critic for The New… Continue reading LIT UP by David Denby | Review

TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN by John Green | Review

How do I even begin this review of John Green's long-awaited novel Turtles All the Way Down? If ever a book was at risk to be threatened by high expectations and hype, then this would certainly be the one. Like many avid readers of Green's works, I was both eager and anxious to read this latest release.… Continue reading TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN by John Green | Review

“Well, at least you’re reading something…” | Discussion

Have you ever heard someone say to someone else: “Well, at least you’re reading something…“? I hate that phrase. I’ve usually heard it said in reference to a “fluffy” romance or young adult novel (Twilight often falls victim to this). It bothers me because it appears to come from a place of supposed superiority, as… Continue reading “Well, at least you’re reading something…” | Discussion

AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir | Review

Months ago I won a copy of An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir in an online giveaway. After enduring its impatient glare from my bookshelf for as long as I could, I finally picked it up and gave it the attention that all of the buzz surrounding it suggests it deserves. Unfortunately, this… Continue reading AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir | Review
