{5-star ARC REVIEW} Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 heart-snatching, heart-mending stars! Mr. Zentner spent my emotions like quarters at an arcade. My body got confused about why the tears were falling as I traversed through the happy and heartbreaking moments that filled these pages. It was a bittersweet joy to watch four boys meet and see why Sauce Crew was formed in Carver’s memories. Then it was a striking ache in my chest to see how he would never be the same again after his […]

{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 […]

{DNF MINI ARC REVIEW} 10 Things I Can See from Her..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Did Not Finish at 58% (I don’t star rate novels that I don’t finish because I don’t think it’s fair to the author/book/publisher that I rate something I didn’t complete.) I wanted to love this one, but in the end, I just couldn’t buy in to any of it. Between Maeve’s anxiety and her morbid fascination with death and the billions of ways one could die (she had stats out the wazoo, […]

{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 […]
