Grown | book review

By this point I think I’ve made it clear that Tiffany D. Jackson is one of my favorite authors and I will honestly read anything she writes. Grown, an absolutely heartbreaking book, was no different and I’m so glad I finally read it this month.

Please be sure to read the trigger warnings for this book found here before reading this review because I will be mentioning some of that content.

Keep reading for all my thoughts and a full review!

All Boys Aren’t Blue | book review

All Boys Aren’t Blue is an eye-opening and necessary book that I would recommend to everyone. I am so glad I decided to read this because it allowed me to learn through the perspective of a different identity than myself.

This is the first time I’ll be reviewing a memoir on my blog, so keep reading to know all my thoughts!

Ties That Tether | book review

Going into Ties That Tether, I was expecting a book that could become my new favorite romance. It sounded perfectly relatable, with a main character who struggles with her cultural identity, a hot love interest, and lots of drama. That being said, I was let down by how this story played out.

Crazy Rich Asians | book review

“Remember, every treasure comes with a price.”

My decision to read Crazy Rich Asians was pretty spontaneous and if I’m being honest, I didn’t even have any plans of ever picking it up. The main reason for that is I LOVE the movie (I would even go so far to say it’s one of my favorite rom-com films 👀) and was slightly nervous about whether or not the book would be a let down. I mean, as far as the movie goes, it was just such a fun time and full of ridiculous, extravagant characters whom you couldn’t help but love. I’ve watched the movie so many times at this point, and the thought of reading the book hadn’t even really crossed my mind.

BUT, I was scrolling through the Libby app on my phone to look for an audiobook I could listen to while working and Crazy Rich Asians was one of the only ones that really caught my eye. I decided to get it and…here we are! Hope you guys liked that (unnecessary) recount of why and how I read this book 🙃

Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. Every night is a party and Bryce is going to savour all the pleasures Lunathion – also known as Crescent City – has to offer. But then a brutal murder shakes the very foundations of the city, and brings Bryce’s world crashing down.

With unforgettable characters and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom – and the power of love.

“Through love, all is possible.”

Okay. Um. This review was incredibly hard to write because it’s almost impossible for me to form any coherent thoughts about this book. 

House of Earth and Blood absolutely stunned me in the best way possible. I was blown away by the characters, the romance, the plot, and the drama. If there’s one book that truly has it all, it’s this one.
