Book Review: Every Day by David Levithan

Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot.

Book Review: More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: There were some really beautiful things about More Happy than Not, and then there were some things I didn’t like so much about it. I feel like my review will be a bit controversial, so I do want to clarify that I love the ideas this book brought about and…

“One day, I’m going to live in theory, because in theory everything goes perfectly.” Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: I loved everything about this book. It’s funny, it’s refreshing, it’s heartwarming. P.S. From Paris is an outstanding read! Levy knows his characters and wrote this woman so well. Normally, I am so wary of male…

Book Review: The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh

“If you want to keep a secret, you must also keep it from yourself.” –The Blinds Book Rating: 4/5 Book Review: If you could forget the worst thing you’ve ever done or witnessed at the price of three simple rules, would you do it? 1. No visitors 2. No Contact 3. No return. The Blinds…
