This is How it Happened – Paula Stokes (ARC Review)

“Where does seeking justice end and seeking vengeance begin?” I really enjoy books that offer a unique social commentary, especially when it’s relevant to modern times, so I jumped at the chance to read this book.

Everything, Everything – Nicola Yoon (Reread Review)

“I was happy before I met him. But I’m alive now, and those are not the same thing.” Reread review time! I originally gave this 5 stars when I read it last year, but upon rereading it, I had to lower it to 4 stars. While I still really enjoyed the relationship that develops between […]
