Book Review: Seven Days of You

Book Review: Seven Days of You

I’m disappointed. After reading the synopsis of Seven Days of You I was expecting a contemporary I’d at least like. I’m generally pretty picky with my contemporary books but this one sounded unique which is why I requested an ARC of it. My first and biggest problem I had with Seven Days of You is the setting. Seven Days of You takes place in Tokyo. I was expecting lots of vivid descriptions because how many YA books take place in Japan? I should have kept my expectation A LOT lower because it didn’t feel like we were in Japan at […]

Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

This is an extremely difficult review to write because of all the hype surrounding this book and the sensitive topics. For the most part, I enjoyed The Hate U Give. There were things I liked and things I didn’t and there was still some problematic areas. I’m going to try my best to explain the jumble of thoughts swirling in my brain as I finished this book. These are all opinions though and I’ve focused on the book itself, not the issues surrounding it. I liked the ideas of The Hate U Give. I loved that it’s about the Black […]

Book Review: Living in the Shallows (UK Crush #1)

Book Review: Living in the Shallows (UK Crush #1)

I feel like this is one of those books that I probably wouldn’t usually like, but for whatever reason at the time that I was reading it I actually enjoyed it. I’m not usually a big fan of contemporary or romance stories but this one was kind of fun to read. It was about a girl who ends up finding a job as a translator to a super famous boy band and she becomes friends with them. It’s like a fantasy come true for some people! The band actually reminded me a lot of One Direction (probably because they were […]

Book Review: The Thousandth Floor (The Thousandth Floor #1)

Book Review: The Thousandth Floor (The Thousandth Floor #1)

This is a book that I went into with high expectations and it probably wasn’t a good idea. I didn’t not like this book but I didn’t really love it either. I really loved the idea of all these people living in a giant tower. That was great but we didn’t really get to see much of it. We saw bits and pieces of it but we didn’t learn anything about how it came to be or how it even works. It felt like we were expected to know this place already and even though it was set in New […]

Book Review: Summer of Sloane

Book Review: Summer of Sloane

If I could rate this book based off of the first half then it would have gotten a four and maybe a 5. It was the first half of this story that sucked me in and kept me there. I loved the idea of our main character going to Hawaii to try and clear her head and figure things out. I wish that was something I could do but sadly it’s a little too pricy for me. In the beginning I liked our main character Sloane. She’s going through a really confusing time and I thought she was doing really […]

ARC Review: Love and First Sight

ARC Review: Love and First Sight

I loved the whole idea of this book. You could tell that the author really did his research about visually impaired people because it felt realistic. There was no face touching (which I never knew if people actually did that or not) but the main character was able to make lots of jokes about his situation. He was a guy that had accepted blindness was a part of him instead of being cranky and cynical all the time. It made him an easy character to like. The group of friends that our main character mad were also pretty cool. I liked […]

Blog Tour: Thanks A Lot, John LeClair

Blog Tour: Thanks A Lot, John LeClair

Hello lovelies and welcome to my stop on the Thanks A Lot John LeClair blog tour! Thanks A Lot, John LeClair is a young adult contemporary book that just so happens to feature hockey (one of my favourite things). I didn’t think I’d like a sports book like this but the characters were just so well done that I couldn’t help but love their story. You can see my full review here, but here’s a recap! Who I’d Recommend To I’d recommend this to those who are on the hunt for diverse reads (an LGBT relationship is seen during this […]

Book Review: Thanks A Lot, John LeClair

Book Review: Thanks A Lot, John LeClair

The best part about this book was the overall feeling. The feelings of being a teenager and not knowing what do to with your life but also the feelings of knowing exactly what you want to do but not knowing if you’ll get there. This book talks about hope and dreams with the added mixture of family drama that nobody can escape from. If was a very realistically written book and it almost made me feeling like I was 16 again. Even though there was such a mixture of emotions, this was actually a happy book. It made me feel […]

Book Review: Center Ice (Corrigan Falls Raiders #1)

Book Review: Center Ice (Corrigan Falls Raiders #1)

This book was exactly what I needed for a quick light read. It was adorable in every way. I especially loved how Canadian this book was! I don’t often read sports books. When I do it’s usually about a guy on a football team. That must be a really American thing right? Because in Canada it’s usually all about hockey. That’s partially why I loved this book! Our star athlete was a hockey player which I found way more fun! That could be because I don’t know much about football hehe. This was a shorter book but I still found […]

Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

I found the whole idea of this book really interesting. I thought it would be interesting to see someone with such a huge disability live the life that is normal for them. I thought a lot of things going into this book but it was slightly disappointing. I still found myself interested in the book the whole way through, even though I had a few issues with it. It was a book that kept me hooked for sure plus I LOVED the audio book narrator(s) which rarely ever happens. So if you do decide to pick this one up, the […]
