Book Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review: What if we could stop being different colors, different backgrounds, and just be in love? The book We Were Liars follows a group of friends who visit Beechwood Island every summer. Three of them are related (Johnny, Mirren, Cadence) and one is portrayed as just lucky to be involved (Gat). The narrator,…

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…

Book Review: The hate u give by Angie Thomas

Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: Where can I even begin with this book? The hate u give is a powerful, gut-wrenching novel that I wish I could make required reading for every single person. That’s right, every single person. Over a certain age, of course. The narrator, Starr, grapples with a split world. She is…

Book Review: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I can’t say I truly enjoyed this book. I found it difficult to get through, and most of the characters unlikable to a point of nonredeemable. Into the Water is a good enough read, but I simply didn’t love it. Paula Hawkins is talented enough to where she sets a…

Book Review: The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

Book Rating: 4/5 Book Review: Uff, this was hard to get through. Not because of the writing, the writing was great. It was more because of the horrifying, haunting subject matter. If you can’t read about rape, murder, kidnapping, pedophilia, and other disturbing subjects, do not read The Butterfly Garden. If you can get through it,…

Book Review: The Child by Fiona Barton

Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: I read The Widow by Fiona Barton last year, so The Child seemed a natural follow up after reading that. It follows the same characters, but this book is a completely different story so it can stand on it’s own, no need to read The Widow first, unless you want to…

Book Review: P.S. From Paris by Marc Levy

“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…
