Book Review: A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay

Book Rating 3/4 Book Review A Head Full of Ghosts was good, but it wasn’t great. I expected to be terrified, to stay up late at night, have nightmares, you name it. I was reading a horror book for a reason! It’s almost Halloween and I wanted to be scared. This novel was told in 3 different…

Book Review: Lies She Told by Cate Holahan

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review The faithful often find themselves blindsided. They don’t suspect anything because they can’t imagine doing something so awful themselves.

Book Review: The Secrets You Keep by Kate White

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…
