Bookworms– A Song of Wraiths and Ruins

For young adult readers, I think this book is a good one to pick up— especially for young black readers who have been missing representation for far too long. As a fantasy novel, I think this was a solid debut for Brown and though I had some qualms with it, I’ve been reading a bit like a writer and a reader so of course, I get picky. She set the scene and really found her rhythm with steady writing for the most part; I think this book has a place on a lot of people’s shelves as a set up for a solid duology and I’m interested to see where this next book goes.

Bookworms–In the Last Five Years

When I stumbled upon this book, I didn’t realize that the characters in it would be in the same situation but for very different reasons. But it got me out of my life for a little while and into another pair of shoes. Into another city, another life. This story is heartwarming and sad and a slight rollercoaster too, one that I think was worth the (in my opinion) short read. So without further ado, here it is.

Bookworms– Dear Edward

The book I’ve chosen for you today is one that deals with change, the kind that we’re all facing even while it might look a little different. One way or another, your life or those within this book, it’s all a paradigm shift. Maybe you don’t know how to handle it all—trust me, the main character in this book had no idea. So if you give it a chance, you just might find a way while Edward does too.

Five Feet Apart–A Book Review

The Fault in Our Stars, Love, Simon, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and countless more do what they do well. Each of these was both a book and a movie—and both turned out quite nicely. Sure, my opinion might be a little biased depending on my tastes against yours, but hear me out on this one. Some books just don’t measure up.
