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?

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.
