{ARC REVIEW} The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

{ARC REVIEW} The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I can’t imagine how challenging it would be to tackle the voice of a movement like Black Lives Matter, but I do know that Thomas did it with a finesse only a talented author like herself possibly could. With an unapologetically realistic delivery packed with emotion, The Hate U Give is a crucially important portrayal of the difficulties minorities face in our country every single day. I have no doubt that […]

{ARC REVIEW} American Street by Ibi Zoboi

{ARC REVIEW} American Street by Ibi Zoboi

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Packed with emotion and a vivid cast of characters, American Street captured the true voice of young American teens everywhere, both the ones born and raised in the U.S. and others who have immigrated here. With honest ethnic, cultural, and LGBTQIAP+ representation, Zoboi tackled the “diversity in lit” and “own voices” challenges with a sincere passion that burned clearly across the pages. ♥ Review: I’m having a difficult go of trying […]

{Top Shelf ARC REVIEW} The Wish Granter (Ravenspire #2) by C.J. Redwine

{Top Shelf ARC REVIEW} The Wish Granter (Ravenspir..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! The Wish Granter is Rumpelstiltskin like you’ve never envisioned him before, yet he still carries that sinister edge we learned to expect from him from our younger days. Told in alternating third person between our cunning heroine, the broken hero, and our vicious fae villain, this book will take you on an enchanting tale that rides the precarious balance between the ruthless and the valiant . . .and how sometimes you […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher via Net Galley but that did not in any way influence this review.   The struggle is real.  The heartbreak, the angst, the undeniable attraction, the romance, the uncertainty, the love…they’re all real!  This story grabbed my emotions and held them hostage – I couldn’t be sure from one page to the next whether I’d be smiling or sobbing.  There was heartache and […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher via Net Galley but that did not in any way influence this review!   Might as well get right to the point here…I loved Felix and Juliet’s story.  And, even though I’ve read this type of book before (and I also guessed the twist), this was one of those rare books where that didn’t matter at all.  I still wished it was 100 […]

{ARC REVIEW} Rise of Fire (Reign of Shadows #2) by..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3.5 stars! I still loved Luna and Fowler very much, and really enjoyed being back in both their heads again! However, I’d have to say as a whole I didn’t love this sequel as much as I loved Reign of Shadows. It was missing the that extra excitement and abundance of romance-y feels I got in the first book, and I even had some of the same world-building issues and questions leftover […]
