Book Review: History of Glitter and Blood

Holy cow. I don’t even know where to begin with this book! This was my second Moskowitz book, and I can officially say now that I’m definitely a fan of her work. There are tons of words I could probably use to describe History of Glitter and Blood, but I don’t think I can even write a proper review from that. Twisted, chaotic, beautiful, mind-bending, edgy… These are just some of the most immediate things that come to mind when I think of this book. MIND. IS. BLOWN. I’ve always loved books involving fairy characters. I also love spooky and more »

I mean, there have been a few (Love in the Time of Global Warming comes to mind immediately) but none have really addressed what it’s like to be bisexual in a contemporary society full of people on both ends of the sexuality spectrum telling you that you don’t know yourself well enough to make that decision for yourself, or that more »

Book Review of Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz

This book. Well.     Teeth was a hard book to tackle. I heard such awesome things about the story, such as the the level of creep factor and the controversial vibe of the book. It was an irresistible book, and I finally was brave enough to pick it up. In the end, I had a lot of personal thoughts to tackle, and some disturbing insight before I could bring myself to review this one.   This review is going to be like pulling…..teeth.   Seriously, you’re going to need some humor somewhere, because this book was dark.   Here goes nothing.   more »
