Starry Eyes Review: Cute, Outdoorsy Contemporary Romance

Starry Eyes Review: Cute, Outdoorsy Contemporary Romance

Jenn Bennett is someone who I know I can always count on for a quick and cute contemporary YA romance that is well-written. While Starry Eyes was probably my least favourite of her novels so far, it was still a really great read. For me, the setting and the plot didn’t really grab me because it’s all […]

Sadie Review: An Intensely Important Story

Sadie Review: An Intensely Important Story

Trigger warnings: child sexual abuse, pedophilia, addiction I was completely unprepared for the journey that Sadie would take me on. It was intense and uncomfortable, and the story built up to such emotional end that I have to admit I spilled a few tears at the closing lines of the novel. It covers an incredibly important topic, […]
