Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

If I’m being absolutely, completely, brutally honest, I actually struggled to get into this book at the beginning (which really sucked since I was so looking forward to it). The reason for this is because I really struggle with third person present tense (yet oddly enough, don’t have trouble with first person present tense – guess I’m just weird that way!) However, I persevered and I’m so glad I did […]

Know Not Why by Hannah Johnson

You know when you get a book that just speaks to you? You’re not even sure why but it just does? This is that book for me. Know Not Why is a charming, funny, surprisingly deep and moving story.

Falling for the Ghost of You by Nicole Christie

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up Falling for the Ghost of You. The title really was a bit misleading. I thought that the book was going to be a lot darker than it ultimately turned out to be. I ended up getting a light, fluffy teen romance (albeit one with sexy-times) and to be honest I am not sure if that is a good thing or a […]
