I see some people ~ NEW! ‘The One Thing’ by Marci Lyn Curtis #Review #BookBirthday

There’s no forgetting ~ ‘I Was Here’ by Gayle Forman #Review

I am a huge, no-holds-barred fan of Gayle Forman’s work. I first read If I Stay in early 2013, which was so sad and hopeful at the same time. Her Just One Day series is one of my favorites, and I squealed (internally) like a twelve-year-old at... Read More | Share it now!

Mostly ghostly ~ ‘Sisters of Blood and Spirit’ by Kady Cross #Review #COYER

I seem to be on a roll, reading books where bad things happen in asylums… Lark Noble is used to everyone thinking she’s crazy. Not that it doesn’t hurt, especially now that she’s back in her hometown after a stay at a mental... Read More | Share it now!

And Tomorrow? ~ ‘All Our Yesterdays’ by Cristin Terrill #Review #COYER

I started this book quite a while ago, and for some reason, it got lost in the shuffle and never finished. Boy, am I glad I circled back around to it. Em is locked in a cell. She has no idea how long she’s been there. Maybe a few months? The next... Read More | Share it now!

You’ll find no ‘Asylum’ here ~ by Madeleine Roux #Review #Coyer

Much like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, Asylum has a cover that’s meant to creep you out. What’s worse is that the photo there, as well as the many inside, are real. Daniel Crawford is excited for his... Read More | Share it now!
