Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed | ARC Review

*Thanks so much to NetGalley and Soho Teen for providing an ARC copy for review! What a better way to start 2018 off than to receive one of those coveted emails from NetGalley that one of my “wishes” had been granted? I was jumping up and down with glee when I saw the email come through only a few days into the new year, as Love, Hate & Other Filters is no doubt one of the most coveted YA releases of 2018. I eagerly downloaded the title to my Kindle and read Maya’s story about love, family, fear and hope […]

The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin | ARC Review

*MASSIVE thank you to Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers for providing an ARC via NetGalley* I do not know how I was #blessed enough to get approved for The Becoming of Noah Shaw on NetGalley, but the bookish gods must have been smiling upon me because I was- and almost screamed out loud at work when the approval email came through on my phone. The original Mara Dyer trilogy is absolutely one of the best series I’ve read, YA or otherwise, and the eerie, haunting feel of it is unmatched. It’s committed to its aesthetic, from everything to […]

Hello, Sunshine by Leila Howland | ARC Review

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for providing a review copy! I have such a soft spot for Leila Howland’s Nantucket series, so I was thrilled to see a new book by her, although set on the West Coast. My NetGalley request to read Hello, Sunshine was approved with perfect timing as I had just listened to Leila’s podcast interview with Sarah Enni on First Draft, and learned about her time spent as an aspiring actress herself. It set the stage perfectly for my reading of Hello, Sunshine as I felt more connected and as though I had […]

Missing by Kelley Armstrong | ARC Review

*Many thanks to NetGalley and Crown Books for Young Readers for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review!* I’ve been a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong ever since I read The Darkest Powers series back in high school, and loved her YA thrilled The Masked Truth (seriously, if you want an INTENSE YA thriller I implore you to go read it immediately). When I saw Missing on NetGalley, I had to snatch it up because I know that if anyone can write a thrilled that’s going to keep my on the edge of my seat and actually raise […]

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid | ARC Review

*A huge thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* I fell in love with Taylor Jenkins Reid about a year or so ago, after reading Maybe in Another Life. I loved her ability to write adult fiction that felt relevant to me in my twenties, to developed extremely nuanced relationships and to write protagonists who all felt distinct and yet familiar at the same time. I’ve read almost all of her published works, so when I heard about The Seven Husbands on Evelyn Hugo, I have to […]

Pretty Fierce by Kieran Scott | ARC Review

Thanks so much to NetGalley and SourceBooks Fire for this review copy! Pretty Fierce is a book with an undeniably intriguing premise, focusing on a daughter of assassins who’s now trying to fit into civilian life after her parents’ mysterious disappearance. I am pretty much always on board for a good spy story, so the second I read the synopsis and saw the juxtaposition of the blurb with the unabashedly pink cover, I knew this was a book that I had to read. As the book’s synopsis states, a majority of this book features Kaia and her boyfriend Oliver on […]

Done Dirt Cheap by Sarah Nicole Lemon | ARC Review

Sometimes when you request an e-galley you really don’t know what you’re going to get, especially if it’s by a debut author or an author that you’re not familiar with. Done Dirt Cheap was a book that fit that criteria for me, but I felt drawn to it with its sassy cover and gritty synopsis. I’m happy to report that Done Dirt Cheap has 100% renewed my faith in trying out new authors and diving into unfamiliar plots, because it was a truly engaging and utterly fantastic read that I wish I could completely purge from my brain so I […]
