Cruel Crown ~ Victoria Aveyard
Cruel Crown ~ Victoria Aveyard
Rating: 4/5 This collection of two very slim novellas into a paperback edition is a perfect addition to the series. Exploring Queen Corianne’s story in Queen Song, and Farley’s story in Steel Scars, Cruel Crown provides depth and insight into not only two important side characters, but also some behind the scenes world building. Queen Corianne, Cal’s mother, has always been a vague idea of a…

The Beautiful Ones ~ Silvia Moreno-Garcia
The Beautiful Ones ~ Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Rating: 4/5 I thoroughly enjoyed the Pride and Prejudice vibes I was getting throughout reading The Beautiful Ones. Antonina is not the image of grace or beauty, but she does know how to keep life interesting. With her “talent” that can cause books to come flying off of shelves and glass to shatter, her emotions can run rampant through not only her body but the house she’s in. When she meets…

Best Reads of 2021 So Far
Best Reads of 2021 So Far
It’s hard to believe we are already almost a third of the way through 2021! It’s been a good year of reading for me so far. I haven’t done any travelling, instead just hunkering down for my three weeks of school breaks to get some good reading in. This week I participated in my first Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, and prepped by playing the board game they put out at the beginning of April (which I…

Glass Sword ~ Victoria Aveyard
Glass Sword ~ Victoria Aveyard
Rating: 3/5 The second in the Red Queen series, I finally picked this up to keep working on the series. I enjoyed Red Queen well enough, which read kind of like a speculative political thriller. Glass Sword hit a good spot for me. Compulsively readable, the politics of war continue to be heavy handed in this series. Mare Barrow, still only 18, is now trying to find her place among the reds after…

Broken ~ Jenny Lawson
Broken ~ Jenny Lawson
Rating: 4.5/5 Hands down my favorite Lawson book yet. Lawson guys us with realness in this latest collection of essays, as she takes a deep dive into her mental health. She shares about connecting with countless people making very human mistakes and feeling embarrassed. She takes vulnerability to a new level with this book,as she opens up to connect with people about the shared experience of…

Red Island House ~ Andrea Lee
Red Island House ~ Andrea Lee
Rating: 3/5 This is hands down the weirdest book I’ve read so far in 2021. Lee’s writing is colorful and descriptive, yet also at times feels deceptive, as though she’s creating chaos in these characters lives where there is none, or vice versa. The times when she creates a feeling of calm when there are some seriously odd things happening is almost scarier. Shay spends most of the year in…

Akata Warrior ~ Nnedi Okorafor
Akata Warrior ~ Nnedi Okorafor
Rating: 5/5 Akata Warrior filled me with so much joy to read. Since the first book gave me so much world building, helping me understand the intricacies of their magic and land, I was looking forward to the character development and play that could unfold in the follow up of the duology. I was not disappointed. Although they face the same nemesis, Sunny and her friends go through such a journey…

When You Reach Me ~ Rebecca Stead
When You Reach Me ~ Rebecca Stead
Rating: 3/5 Read Harder 2021 Task #9: Read a Middle Grade Mystery Novel I wouldn’t have picked this book up were it not for BookRiot’s Read Harder challenge. So I guess it’s working, and they’re pushing me outside of my comfort zone. This book had some good elements to it, but it didn’t stick out to me overall. Miranda, a sixth grader, is just growing up and learning how to respond to ever…

Furiously Happy ~ Jenny Lawson
Furiously Happy ~ Jenny Lawson
Rating: 4/5 I enjoyed Furiously Happy more than Lawson’s last memoir, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. Which is funny to me because the person I bought this book at at a garage sale last summer said she preferred the first book, which I ended up reading and didn’t enjoy that much, so it took me a while to pick this up. Of course now I’ve requested and been approved for her next book coming out…

Fatal Fried Rice ~ Vivien Chien
Fatal Fried Rice ~ Vivien Chien
Rating: 3/5 I’m not usually one for cozy mysteries, but Fatal Fried Rice makes me understand the appeal. I jumped in head first into the seventh book in the series, but it felt as though it could be a stand alone book, other than the allusions to the previous murders Lana has been a part of. She seems to be a highly unlucky Chinese American woman working at her family’s restaurant, who happens…

In Five Years ~ Rebecca Serle
In Five Years ~ Rebecca Serle
Rating: 4/5 Honestly I didn’t like the characters all that much. They felt almost stock-like in their composition, and they didn’t sit nicely. However, the story was intriguing. Dannie works as a lawyer in Manhattan, living a perfect life with a white and gray apartment, a lawyer boyfriend, and fancy dinner dates. She’s got a plan, and everything is going according to that plan. Basically, she’s…

I Thought It Was Just Me ~ Brene Brown
I Thought It Was Just Me ~ Brene Brown
Rating: 5/5 It’s no secret that I love Brene Brown, and while this book was more difficult to get into than some of her others, this book holds the foundation of her shame and vulnerability research. Brown talks about creating and marketing this book in her podcast, Unlocking Us, which I was listening to over the summer. If you think about it, trying to sell the idea of shame to others does seem…

The Incredible Nellie Bly ~ Luciana Cimino
The Incredible Nellie Bly ~ Luciana Cimino
Rating: 4/5 Packed with beautiful illustrations, I enjoyed this graphic novel starting Nellie Bly. I love that it’s told from a young journalist’s perspective as she interviews Nellie Bly in Boy’s old age. The story seems sweet in that way. I’ve always been a big fan of Nellie Bly, and so am excited to see her story written in an approachable, and dare I say, enjoyable style. This doesn’t read…

Dear Justyce ~ Nic Stone
Dear Justyce ~ Nic Stone
Rating: 5/5 Listening to this book on audio was an emotional experience. While at times the narration was hard to follow because of the non-linear trajectory of the novel, with each memory revisited I found myself feeling more and more for Quan. Particularly hard hitting were the emotions surrounding the feeling that nothing Quan did or did not do would make a difference in his life trajectory.…

You Had Me at Hola ~ Alexis Daria
You Had Me at Hola ~ Alexis Daria
Rating: 4/5 Romance of romances, this sexy telenovela-esque book is a romance between two latinx celebrities. Sex is right there on the page, so if you’re a more subtle romance reader, this book will probably not be for you. More than that, it’s a story about the walls we build to protect ourselves, that we think will keep us safe but really just keep others out. It’s a story about family, and…
