Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review I saw The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo literally everywhere, but avoided it incessantly. It seemed like a book I wouldn’t particularly like. Typically, books about movie stars don’t make my short list. However, I stumbled upon it in my Scribd library, and thought, well…might as well give it a…

Book Review: Happy Doomsday by David Sosnowski

“So you want to make up a whole new religion just so a kid will stop asking questions,” Lucy said. Dev nodded. “That’s what religion was for, wasn’t it? That, and tax exemptions.” Book Rating 2.5/5 Book Review Happy Doomsday had redeeming qualities, for sure. It was well-written, and the characters were awesome, especially Dev.…

Book Review: The Naturalist by Andrew Mayne

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The Naturalist was another book I listened to on tape, as you can see at my attempt of a bookstagram-worthy photo. There were a lot of great things about this book. First, the story was amazing. It kept me up at night. I listened to it while I was moving…

Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

The problem with rules was that they implied a right way and a wrong way to do things. When, in fact, most of the time there were simply ways, none of them quite wrong or quite right, and nothing to tell you for sure which side of the line you stood on. Book Rating 3.75/5 Book…

Book Review: After She Vanished by S.A. Dunphy

Book Rating 3.75/5 Book Review I recently went on a trip to Ireland, and what kind of book blogger would I be if I didn’t buy a novel written by an Irish author? So, after spending some painstaking time at a bookstore in Ireland, trying to narrow my choice down to one single read, I…
