Bite-Sized Reviews: Crash Land on Kurai, The Star-Touched Queen and Death’s Queen

Bite-Sized Reviews: Crash Land on Kurai, The Star-Touched Queen and Death’s Queen

I’ve got three bite-sized reviews today—one for a book I loved and two for disappointing reads. I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! This book is a spin-off of Pajonas’s Nojiku Series, but you don’t have to read that first series to appreciate it. In fact, I have to confess that I’m horrible with remembering details of books I read long ago and I was struggling to remember all […]

What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum: An All-Time Favorite!

What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum: An All-Time Favorite!

This book was everything I could want as far as the way it portrays a kid who isn’t neurotypical—I loved being inside David’s head and seeing the world from his point of view. We need books like these that shed light on people who think and act differently than the mainstream. This book tackles the topic with sensitivity and candor. What Fed My Addiction: David’s POV. Like I said, I was intrigued by the perspective of a kid […]

The Lake Effect by Erin McCahan: Review of a Perfect Summer Read!

The Lake Effect by Erin McCahan: Review of a Perfect Summer Read!

This is one of those perfect summer reads—the type of book you can read all in one sitting on a sunny morning (which is exactly what I did!). What Fed My Addiction: Good balance of light tone and heavy topics. This book covers some serious topics like death, chronic illness, class differences and family pressures, but Briggs’ voice is light and funny enough to make the read enjoyable rather than plodding. Plus, there are some really […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of The Upside of Unrequited, The Unlikelies, Dead Ed in My Head, and Bang

Bite-Sized Reviews of The Upside of Unrequited, The Unlikelies, Dead Ed in My Head, and Bang

I know I’ve been relying on bite-sized reviews a lot lately, but I feel like it’s the only way I can get them all in. I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! This book was all sorts of adorable and it reminded me of me as a teen. Though I didn’t struggle with weight issues, I was very afraid to let a boy know I liked him—much better to avoid being […]

Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally: Review of the Final Hundred Oaks Hurrah!

Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally: Review of the Final Hundred Oaks Hurrah!

I actually didn’t realize when I started reading that this was the final Hundred Oaks book. In fact, it wasn’t until I got to the epilogue and read an update on many of our favorite past characters that I realized that Kenneally was wrapping the series up with this one. I’m sad to see the series go, but I’m glad that I had the opportunity to read these books! (By the way, they can all […]

Series Review: The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski

Series Review: The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski

Today I’m doing bite-sized reviews of The Winner’s Trilogy. I know I’m late to the game with this series, but it’s nice to catch up a little. I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! The first book in this series had me hooked from the very beginning! I was incredibly invested in Arin’s and Kestrel’s stories and I loved the themes of war and slavery. This is one of those stories […]
