Body Image in Books

Body Image in Books

Okay, I need to discuss rant about something that’s really bothering me lately. It’s wonderful that there continues to be an increase of diversity in books, whether it’s ethnicity, sexuality, mental disorders, etc. I’m also extremely happy that body image is being tackled more often, especially in YA. We’re seeing more young woman who are […]

Mars One by Jonathan Maberry

Mars One by Jonathan Maberry

I’ve read a lot of Jonathan Maberry’s books, and he hasn’t disappointed me yet. Whether it’s horror, thriller or science fiction, he always delivers a good story. I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect with Mars One. Was it going to take place solely on Earth? Was there going to actually to be “space stuff”? […]

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

I’ve mostly moved on from YA contemporary. Even authors I once loved have lost some appeal. However, Jenn Bennett does something magical with her books that puts them in a whole other category. And Alex, Approximately showcases that magic. ♥  The setup could’ve easily been a corny disaster, but it’s done very well and realistic. […]

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

Well, well, well … I do believe Tiffany Reisz has made a solid fan out of me. The Night Mark is the second book of hers that I’ve read and love. I don’t know why, but I tend to feel a bit reluctant to read her books because I get the lame-ass idea that it’ll […]

The Awakening by Amanda Stevens

The Awakening by Amanda Stevens

Damn. I hate to see this series come to an end. At least we got an ending though. There were a few years there after the 3rd book that gave me serious doubts that we would. Not only did we get an ending with The Awakening, it what a satisfying one at that. I’ve always […]

The Burning World by Isaac Marion

The Burning World by Isaac Marion

I think most people have heard of Warm Bodies by now, right? It’s a novel that was turned into a movie. It’s a nice spin on zombies regaining their humanity with a mixture of action, romance, and humor. I loved both formats, so I was excited when a sequel was announced. Whoa, I wasn’t expecting […]

Dirty Angels by Karina Halle

Dirty Angels by Karina Halle

I finally read Dirty Angels! Okay, I absolutely love The Artist Trilogy, but wasn’t exactly gaga over Javier, so I put this book off. It’s a spin-off, but can be read on it’s own. Of course, it’s even better when you read them in order, though. Anyway, I wasn’t in too much of a hurry […]
