The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things by Ann Aguirre: A Dual Review with Danielle Hammelef

The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things by Ann Aguirre: A Dual Review with Danielle Hammelef

Dual Reviews, Make Me Read It, Reviews 24 ★★★½

(No actual dueling—or even arm-twisting—was involved. Don’t worry, this is a dual review, not a duel review. Sorry if you’re disappointed.) Today I have another dual review of a book from my Make Me Read It Giveaway (as part of the Wrap-Up Round-Up). Danielle Hammelef was once again my winner (which just goes to show that entering often is well worth it!) and she chose to make me read The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things. Once I read the book, I sent it along to her. Once again, Danielle took me up on the option of doing a dual review, which I was really excited about since it’s such a fun way to review! Read on to see what we thought of the book… Danielle and I disagreed about this book somewhat (which sort of makes this review more fun, in my opinion). I think it mostly came down to whether… Read more »

You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan: A Dual Review with Danielle Hammelef

You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan: A Dual Review with Danielle Hammelef

Dual Reviews, Make Me Read It, Reviews 26 ★★★★

(No actual dueling—or even arm-twisting—was involved. Don’t worry, this is a dual review, not a duel review. Sorry if you’re disappointed.) Today I have another dual review of a book from my Make Me Read It Giveaway (as part of the Wrap-Up Round-Up). Danielle Hammelef, a faithful FYFA reader, was again my latest winner, and she chose to make me read You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan. Once I read the book, I sent it along to her. Once again, Danielle took me up on the option of doing a dual review. This time, she gave me her thoughts first (which I was grateful for, since I had waited way too long to review—I really need to get better about that), and I responded. Read on to see what we thought of the book… DANIELLE SAYS: I enjoyed my time reading this book as it is well-written, lots of… Read more »

Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham: A Dual Review with AJ @ Read All the Things!

Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham: A Dual Review with AJ @ Read All the Things!

Dual Reviews, Make Me Read It, Reviews 16

Today I’ve got something a little different on the blog. Some of you may have seen my Make Me Read It Giveaway (as part of the Wrap-Up Round-Up). AJ @ Read All the Things was the first ever winner, and she chose to make me read Dreamland Burning—and then she got the book as soon as I was done. (I know the graphic above might make it look like AJ had to challenge me to some sort of duel to make me read the book, but really, all she had to do was win it. No actual battling—or even arm-twisting—was involved. Don’t worry, this is a dual review, not a duel review. Sorry if you’re disappointed.) As part of the giveaway, I thought it would be fun to offer up the option of doing a dual review, and AJ took me up on it! So here it is, the first… Read more »
