Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Some books just FEEL important as you’re reading them. And this is one of those books. But what I love about this book is that it’s also really easy to read and it flew by as I was listening to it. I loved it so much and I can’t even put into words how great it was. It’s funny, touching, beautiful, and incredibly well-written.  I’m just going to leave the synopsis below and say that I truly think everyone should read this book and I’m so happy that it’s doing so well!!  Continue reading “Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas”

Book Review: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Holy Freaking OMG – Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrated an Audiobook!

I don’t think I’ve squealed about Hamilton and Lin-Manuel Miranda or any of the amazing cast members here (that needs to be corrected shortly!), but I’m kind of obsessed with it. So much so that when I discovered that Lin had narrated a YA book previously I had to rush out to listen to it as quickly as possible. Even better is that the book turned out to be really well written with amazing characters so BONUS! Continue reading “Holy Freaking OMG – Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrated an Audiobook!”

Book Review: As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes

I’ve been in a bit of a book slump so I had no idea what I was going to write about for this week’s blog post, but then I woke up this morning to an email from Audible highlighting As You Wish by Cary Elwes as today’s Daily Deal and my decision was made.

Book Review: The Name of the Wind & The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

You might ask yourself why on earth is this chick reviewing a book that came out years ago? That she read years ago. That we’ve all read. And that we might have a very strong love hate relationship with. The answer is simple Continue reading “Book Review: The Name of the Wind & The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss”
