Number the Stars

At first glance, this looks like a children’s book. However, the subject matter was too intense to be one. This sweet story about a girl named Annemarie living in 1943 with a Jewish best friend named Ellen. Annamarie’s family helps hide her and her parents move to a safe place until the war is over. The story felt rushed, but it was a sweet story. (to be honest, I’m obsessed with the 1940’s. I don’t know why…) Below is an […]

ACOTAR and ACOMAF

ACOTAR: *SPOILER FREE* If I’m being honest (which I am) it was REALLY HARD to get into this book. Feyre’s sisters got on my nerves (as they were supposed to) but Feyre began to get on my nerves too. I liked everyone except Tamlin. Well, I liked him a little, but, well….I’m on the next book so… All I’m gonna say is that I can relate to Feyre well. Taking care of your family when you have almost nothing. You constantly think of […]

Change Places with Me

Change Places with Me – Lois Metzger Pages: 224 Type: Hardcover Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, coming-of-age Publishing info: June 14, 2016, by Balzer + Bray My rating: ☆☆☆ (3/5 stars) To be honest, the book was a little boring to me at first. Gradually, you start to hear the voice. Not the “I’m an author writing a story” voice, but a “This is ___ she has a story. Let’s listen” With the two books by her, I’ve read, she has this strong […]

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

★★★★★                               Ransom Riggs 01/24/2017 Going into this book, I knew it was about some strange kids, with peculiar abilities, and maybe have a Stranger Things vibe, where a lot of weird stuff goes down. I was wrong. I didn’t think I’d meet the characters as soon as I did. This is not a disappointment in the slightest! [Riggs] writing skill is so epic,(she uses correctly) […]

Nimona

Nimona is the cutest, coolest YA comic I have ever read! Hands down….brilliant!   I was apprehensive about reading this book, simply because I’m not really a ‘comic book person’ as much as I was when I was younger (don’t get me wrong, I love Marvel movies and go see them. I just don’t read the comics anymore) but I heard about this one in passing, so I picked it up. It was so good, I read it in one […]
