Starting with books for younger readers and working my way up to books that I hope to share with the youth in my life as they mature.
I work in a bookstore, so it's pretty safe to say that I love books. I'm not obsessed with books like some people I have met, but I do really love a great book... especially when it's a book about books. I think that anyone who really loves books gets a bit of a thrill from when reading about other bibliophiles.
Okay kids, strap in, we're doing this! I haven't written a review in a while, but I figured it was about time. If you know my writing style, you can be fairly certain that there won't be any spoilers for A Court of Wings and Ruin in this review. So don't fear if you haven't finished (or even started) this book.
I pride myself on being someone who reads books that not everyone else has read. I love being able to share my unique finds with customers and friends. All of these books are special in their own way. Some are very well-known, while others are hidden gems. I can't wait to see what other people have... Continue Reading →

I love when authors add to a classic story to try to explain why certain characters act the way they do, especially when it's a villain. We always just assume that these bad guys are angry, crazy, evil people who enjoy hurting others for no good reason. And sure, sometimes that's true, but often new authors... Continue Reading →
I'm running out of "teens in mental hospitals" books! If any of you have suggestions I'd love to hear them. Please leave me a comment with any recommendations you have. Cracked is an interesting take on this genre. Victor and Bull are the alternating narrators in this classic tale of bully vs. bullied, but the twist... Continue Reading →
Am I the only one who automatically assumes that when a book starts out by telling me that one character has killed another that it's a lie? Maybe I've watched too many crime dramas on TV because I always think that the first suspect is the least likely to have actually committed the crime. Synopsis:... Continue Reading →
If a psychologist were to look at my Goodreads account these last few weeks they might very well assume that I'm having some sort of breakdown with all these books about mental illness I've been reading. In fact, while I do have my own issues with mental health, I just find books like this totally... Continue Reading →
