Book Review: Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

They always call depression the blues, but I would’ve been happy to waken to a periwinkle outlook. Depression to me is urine yellow. Washed out, exhausted miles of weak piss. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review Whew. Sharp Objects is a heavy, heavy book. I’m going to need quite a few light reads after this one.…

Book Review: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

It avoids rather than hurts, it hurts rather than maims, it maims rather than kills–the staff does not destroy. Book Rating 5/5 Book Review SKIES!! The Children of Blood and Bone is soooo good. Adeyemi builds a world that sucked me in from the first page. I highly recommend this novel to anyone. I feel…

People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had. Book Rating 5/5 Book Review Oh, my goodness. I haven’t felt these many feelings in a book since The Great Alone. If you want to laugh, cry, sob, sit and reflect on life… A Man Called…

Book Review: The Naturalist by Andrew Mayne

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The Naturalist was another book I listened to on tape, as you can see at my attempt of a bookstagram-worthy photo. There were a lot of great things about this book. First, the story was amazing. It kept me up at night. I listened to it while I was moving…

Book Review: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review And Then There Were None was my first venture with an Agatha Christie book, which kind of surprises me now, knowing she’s the “Queen of Mystery” and apparently super popular. What can I say? I must be living under a rock. This was also my first venture with an audio book…
