Book Reviews

Reading is an important coping mechanism for me. After spending quite a bit of time on #BookTok, I’ve rediscovered my love for reading and I want to share them with you.


Becoming

Author: Michelle ObamaPublisher: CrownGenre: autobiography, memoirRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I thought this was a great read and a great look in to the life of our first First Family that was African American. It was also really great to see how the times have changed from the sixties and on. The glimpse of political life and life […]

Blood on the Orchids

Author: Jill SteelePublisher: SelfGenre: mystery, thrillerRating: ⭐️/5 If I could give this book negative stars, I would. The only redeeming feature of this book was that it wasn’t written on my home island of Hawaii. That’s it. You can tell the author didn’t map out her characters, their relationships to each other or their roles […]

Fahrenheit 451

Author: Ray BradburyPublisher: Simon & SchusterGenre: classics, dystopian, scifiRating: ⭐️⭐️/5 I didn’t like it. I think I would have liked the situation and the book burning and everything, but I didn’t like the author’s writing style. You can tell it’s from the 1950’s and I don’t really care for the flowery language that takes a […]

Shadow and Bone

Author: Leigh BardugoPublisher: ImprintGenre: young adult, fantasy⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 February 2022 Book of the Month! I think it was a really great book and a great start to the trilogy. I really like fantasy books with a great world building that you kind of stop every so often and can almost picture where they are and what […]

Star Wars: Ronin

Author: Emma Mieko CandonPublisher: Del ReyGenre: sci fi, fantasyRating: ⭐️⭐️/5 This one was exceptionally underwhelming. For a Star Wars book, I was hoping for a clean cut plot and action packed that tugged at my emotions. But I feel like I got none of that. Yes there was action, but it seemed so subdued. Plus […]

14 Ways to Die

Author: Vincent RalphPublisher: SourcebooksGenre: young adult, thrillerRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 Trope: Culprit Isn’t One of the Suspects🛑 Warning: One of the characters attempts to commit suicide 🛑 Comparing this book to my previously reviewed, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson, I think this one was more of a thriller to me. This one is […]

Promises and Pomegranates

Author: Sav R. MillerPublisher: SelfGenre: dark romance, novelRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Spice Level: 🌶🌶🌶🌶/5 (Raunchy sexy time with dirty talking and kinks) So in my opinion it was an okay book. But I mean I didn’t buy it for the story, you know what I mean? I liked how the book ended sure but let’s say I […]

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

Author: Holly JacksonPublisher: EmberGenre: young adult, mystery, thrillerRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Trigger Warnings: SuicideTrope: Culprit isn’t one of the suspects It was such a great mystery book. I never expected the story to go the way it had. It was a roller coaster of mystery and intrigue. It was really crazy. I definitely loved how Pip goes […]

It Ends With Us

Author: Colleen HooverPublisher: AtriaGenre: contemporary romanceRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Trigger Warnings: Sexual and domestic abuse I really had no idea what I thought when I finished the story. I was confused, happy, sad, and really frustrated by everything that happened to Lily. Everything was going great and then everything wasn’t. I absolutely loved the story and I […]

They Both Die At The End

Author: Adam SilveraPublisher: HarperCollinsGenre: Young Adult, AdventureRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 When I finally finished this book, it was like a sigh of relief. I felt a bit of mixed feelings because at least they lived their last day as fully as possible but death was literally staring them all in the face all day. There’s one character […]

All The Bright Places

Author: Jennifer NivenPublisher: EmberGenre: young adult, novel, contemporary romanceRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 I thought this book was so great. It took me back to high school and it wasn’t really something I wanted to bring back. I went to a different school for my sophomore year and life got a lot better for me there. But my […]

Lore

Author: Alexandra BrackenPublisher: HyperionGenre: Fantasy, Young AdultRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 January 2022 Book of the Month! What a fantastic read! I’ve always been interested in Greek mythology. It’s a really interesting topic to study. This story brings the Greek gods in to the modern world. There’s Greek language, fighting scenes, betrayal, and a little bit of love. […]

A nerd, a jock, a bad boy, a popular girl, and the school’s gossip all find themselves in detention one afternoon. All seems normal until a loud crash and a dead body. The school’s gossip is dead.
