Review: New American Best Friend by Olivia Gatwood

Hello everyone, today I am writing about a book that is a little bit different. Normally, I only talk about fiction on here, but there will probably be more poetry in the near future. I will admit that going into this I was already a little bit biased. I have watched Olivia Gatwood’s slam poems… Continue reading Review: New American Best Friend by Olivia Gatwood

Review: Scythe by Neal Shusterman

“You have three hundred sixty-five days of immunity.” And then, looking him in the eye, said, “And I’ll be seeing you on day three hundred sixty-six.” Scythe reeled me in with the profound inquisition as to whom, if anyone, should be allowed to decide who dies.

Review: Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

“But some things are stronger than years of freedom. The draw of fire. A longing for freedom. Or a girl on a red horse.” Here’s another one from my stash. This is a new one for YA, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I believe that this is the direction that we should be going… Continue reading Review: Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

Review: Exquisite Captive by Heather Demertrios

“She was the roar and the whisper and the stillness. She was nothing. She was everything.” This is another pull from my large TBR pile from the library. It is based on Arabian Nights, including jinnis, magic wish granting, and decorative bottles. I thought I was getting myself into another retelling, but this one is… Continue reading Review: Exquisite Captive by Heather Demertrios
