Frat Girl by Kiley Roache | ARC Review

There’s no denying that Frat Girl is an addictive read. A girl rushes a fraternity at an elite university in order to unearth their secrets? I couldn’t hit “request” on NetGalley fast enough. As I predicted, Frat Girl left me reeling in many different ways, both positively and negatively, but I can’t deny that Kiley Roache’s writing style and ideas are right up my alley as an reader who puts the “adult” in “young adult.” First and foremost, I have to give this book major kudos for being set in college and COMMITTING to the setting. Often times college set […]

North of Happy by Adi Alsaid | Review

Many thanks to the publisher for providing a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review! As a reader, I’d been curious about North of Happy for quite a while.

Going into The Problem with Forever, I was a little skeptical because I wasn’t sure Armentrout’s trademark sarcastic humor and hot guy formula were going to work with the topics at hand. I was pleasantly surprised to find The Problem with Forever a book with a quiet yet intense romance that had a […]

Mini Review Round Up: Lies We Tell Ourselves, The Start of Me and You, & The Serpent King

Lies We Tell Ourselves is one of the hardest-to-read books I’ve encountered in a while, and rightfully so. It chronicles school segregation in the south in the 1950s, a time when racism was at its ugliest and most obvious, and cruelty was currency to be used in establishing one’s place in the racial social hierarchy. Watching Sarah and her peers have to deal with such blatant and intense harassment, and for them to have to just take the bullying for the sake of the greater good of segregation, made my blood boil, especially to think that this wasn’t THAT long […]
