{ARC REVIEW} Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner

{ARC REVIEW} Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3.5 stars! Enriched with Russian folklore and a girl that knew her way around a bow-and-arrow and came equipped with an ax, Spooner certainly took creative liberties in this darker retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Sprinkled throughout the storyline were lessons on life, love, and our wants for unfulfilled desires, and how sometimes what we want has been right in front of us all along. While I definitely enjoyed their strength of […]

*Note:  This book was provided to  The Book Hookup by the Publisher but that did not in any way influence this review.     Have you ever completely understood why something had to happen yet your heart still fought it? Me too. This book moves the story forward in a couple of different ways and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed this story…it has character growth, […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Heartbeats of Wing Jones by Kathe..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Diversity and culture were an important factor in this book, just as much as Wing’s journey to realizing her self-worth and discovering that her outward differences made her better and stronger in some ways. The representation of a multitude of diverse characters this book had to offer had me falling in love with this book, but other aspects kept me from falling for it completely. ♥ Review: *long sigh* Damn, […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Great Pursuit (Eurona Duology #2) by Wendy Higgins

{ARC REVIEW} The Great Pursuit (Eurona Duology #2)..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Filled with fun characters, action and intensity, and surprises around every corner, The Great Pursuit was a great finale to a solidly plotted duology. ♥ Review: There’s really not much detail that I can go into about this novel because so much that I have to say/want to flail about revolves around the characters and the plot would spoil so much for other readers. I will say that I […]

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Delicious banter, fun characters, and sizzzzzling sexytimes make Every Little Thing the perfect escape from reality.

{ARC REVIEW} You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner

{ARC REVIEW} You’re Welcome, Universe by Whi..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! With a heavy focus on friendship, diversity, and graffiti art, this novel was a feast for the eyes. The pacing felt wonky in places, but I still managed to make quick work of this book. ♥ Review: I thought for the most part that You’re Welcome, Universe was a solid read. I believe it did a good job of depicting diversity in race, sexual orientation, and deaf, hearing, and those […]

{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 […]
