Review: Want by Cindy Pon

There’s something about Cindy Pon’s writing that I connect with. This is the first book by this author that I have read, but it certainly won’t be my last. Her writing is a perfect balance of characters, description, and plot. One does not dominate the other the way I find with so many other books. The setting for Want is Taipei, Taiwan, which is not a setting that is common in any genre, but especially not in young adult. Sidenote: I know YA is not a genre, but how else do you word that statement? I am loving the fact that more »

Better Late Than Never: Reviews of eARCs for the Lazy (3)

Welcome to another edition of Better Late Than Never: Reviews of eARCs for the Lazy! Do you have review copies piling up? Do you have eARCs that you requested but never got to because you got overwhelmed by life? Or did you just bite off more than you can chew? (That’s me.) At some point I was still hoping I could review these books (even though my review wouldn’t really be of use to the publisher anymore) because it would be still useful to readers, and also to me, because the pile-up was giving me anxiety every time I thought more »

An Adult, a Young Adult, and a Middle Grade #1

Helllllloooo. Welcome to this new thing I’m trying. I’ve been going through some major, MAJOR blogger burnout. I haven’t felt like writing reviews and I’ve only wanted to read. Book after book after book. Let’s be real. Writing reviews can be a really tedious thing if it’s not something that feels like a strength. For me, it isn’t. I’ve never felt like I was great at writing reviews at all. For a while there I felt like I was improving, but then it sort of plateaued and…yeah. So I’m going to try something new. Writing short reviews. And to keep more »

Book Review: 26 Kisses

I wanted to read a fluffy, contemporary book so badly and that’s what I got. 26 Kisses kinda took me by surprise because I expected it to be more indepth, yknow? Like, about a girl who finally finds herself and realizes that she needs no man? BUT don’t worry, I’m not bitter about it. Quite the opposite actually, I think this book was really REALLY ADORABLE. I mean, a girl going around doing 26 kisses? I’m really glad the author did not shy away from pointing out the real consequences of a girl doing that, especially one who just got more »
