Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard Review

This audiobook was a several-week journey, mainly due to juggling grad school and work. This audio book was twelve hours in length, but was worth the ride! I really looked forward to listening to this audiobook at my leisure.

Before I get into this book, I will be honest: it is the type of series people either love or dislike. There are quite a few tropes in this series. This book is about a special protagonist, a love triangle, and a royal rebellion. But I ended up really liking this book, due to the writing and narrator for the audiobook.

Cat’s Cafe by Matt Tarpley Review

Cat’s Cafe by Matt Tarpley is an adorable comic anthology. I’ve occasionally came across a few of the comics on instagram. The premise of this anthology is simple: there are animals and creatures living in a small village who love to gather in a cat’s coffee shop. I picked up this book and fell in love with the cute art style. I thought the book would also be simple and comedic, but it had a lot more depth than I expected.

Strange Planet by Nathan W. Pile Review

There’s a chance that Strange Planet comics may have popped up on your social media feed.  They’re about odd aliens who live lives similar to our own, but speak in a different dialect. The comics are amusing because of the dialogue, which is often rather deadpan, yet relatable.

Nathan W. Pile is the artist– he posts some of the comics featured in this book on his Instagram.  Below is an example of one of his comics!

They Both Die At The End By Adam Silvera Review

33385229._SY475_

They Both Die at The End by Adam Silvera is what you would expect out of a novel with this title, but offers a lot more than what readers may anticipate.

I thought this novel would be at least a little grim, perhaps even similar to Marcus Zusak’s The Book Thief in the matter-of-fact way it addresses death. This book does have its sad moments, yet at the same time, it is also uplifting and hopeful and teaches readers to cherish their lives.

Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella Review

In the first chapter of this book, we are introduced to a quirky family and many of the flaws of the main family are out in the open. The first chapter was one of the most memorable I’ve read in a long time, perhaps even all semester, out of the dozen or YA books I was required to pick up. (To be honest, I did so much reading over the past few months, I lost track of the exact amount). Why was the first chapter so memorable?

Thoughts on Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

35504431

Turtles all The Way Down by John Green is a novel released in October of 2017. I was eager to pick this up after his novel, The Fault in Our Stars. I have not read The Fault in Our Stars Since high school, but remember enjoying this book and wanting to read more of his work. I read Green’s newest novel over a couple of days and had mixed thoughts about it. As a heads up, there will be spoilers for Turtles all The Way Down in this post.  This review shoes negative and positive aspects I found in this novel, and is my own opinion on this work–I’m open to hearing your thoughts!
