Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young

May 17, 2019 Book review 4 ★★★½

Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young was a book that I couldn’t wait to read. Even though I binged on all the young adult books about 5 years ago, I rarely read them anymore. I just overdosed on them, and after a while I thought they all felt very… Read more »

Book Review: No Way Out by Cara Hunter

Book Review: No Way Out by Cara Hunter

April 26, 2019 Book review 2 ★★★★½

No Way Out by Cara Hunter makes it 3 in a row for this author. A hat trick of puzzling mysteries with red herrings and curve balls. I know I’m mixing up all my metaphors here but I’m just trying to impress on you how much I love this series…. Read more »
