Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

I bough Pushing the Limits awhile ago and have kept meaning to read it but other things just kept getting in the way. I am sorry it took me so long to get to this as I was really quite blown away by the story. This novel is told in dual first-person narrative from the perspectives of two very different teens. Echo Emerson, former popular girl turned social outcast, is a girl […]

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I have had the biggest smile on my face since I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss. It was just what I was in the mood for since I have been going through a spell of heavier, more angst-ridden books lately.

There is some angst involved (relating to coming out etc.) but overall the two protagonists are generally […]

Suicide Watch by Kelley York

Is it possible to feel depressed and uplifted at the same time? I love books that make me feel and Suicide Watch hit me in the feels – hard. I was very impressed by Kelley York’s debut novel Hushed but I loved Suicide Watch even more if that is possible. The characters broke my heart into teeny, tiny pieces but now it is time to try and put it all back together again to try and […]

Hushed by Kelley York

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this book since I finished reading it. It has twisted my insides up (in the way a good book should) and I have to say I find myself quite conflicted about the story and how I feel about it. Hushed is the story of two life-long friends Archer and Vivian and their complicated, ofttimes tragic, past. The two of them have what […]
