Monday Reviews - The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows

Image
Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews!

This week, I will be reviewing a book I received from Penguin Random House, The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows. Thanks so much for the book, all opinions are my own.

Ok, so as always, let's start with synopsis!


Evoking the same small town charm with the same great eye for character, the co-author of Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society finds her own voice in this debut novel about a young debutante working for the Federal Writer's Project whose arrival in Macedonia, West Virginia changes the course of history for a prominent family who has been sitting on a secret for decades. 

The Romeyn family is a fixture in the town, their identity tied to its knotty history. Layla enters their lives and lights a match to the family veneer and a truth comes to light that will change each of their lives forever.










Ok, so this book. Well, it was good, and (surprisingly) I enjoyed it. It was out of my usual reading comfort zone,…

Young Adult Summer Reading List

Image
Hello everyone!

I decided to do something a little different today, and since the first day of summer was just a few days ago, I thought it was time to share a list of books you need to read this summer!

Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid No summer reading list is complete without at least one road trip! Luckily, LGL is just the book! Its a road trip meets summer romance meets finding yourself story. Broken up into six sections, really mini-stories connected through the main character, this beautifully written book is humorous and heart wrenching. Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid If you love(d) LGL by the same author, I recommend you check out his new book. Coming out in August, this is a story about clich├ęs and looks at what it means to grow up and live life to the fullest. And if its anything like LGL, the writing is going to be stunning! You definitely want to get your hands on this one when it comes out! My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick Ok, so this is your perfect summer ro…

As always, let's start with the synopsis!

T5W - Books Read in One Sitting

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Top 5 Wednesday! If you want to check it out, you can go to the Goodreads group and read more about it.
This week's topic is top 5 books I read in one sitting! Let's get started!

5. Everything, Everything by Nicola YoonI read this book in two sittings, so maybe thats cheating, but I stayed up waaaay past my bedtime to try and finish this book, but I ended up having to put it down, because I was falling asleep at like 1 am on a school night. But I totally would have stayed up if I didn't need to be up in 6 hours. 4. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins This one was just too adorable to stop reading. I think I took a break for dinner, but I came right back to it afterwards! This was also my favourite out of the series.

3. Summer by Summer by Heather BurchHere's how this conversation in my head went:
- (Approximately 8:30 am) Hmm, what do I want to read? - This looks good... - And its short, I'll fly through it - (Approxim…

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I'm just finishing up school, I should be able to post more frequently for the summer season!

Anyways, lets get to this weeks review! I was contacted by the author to read and review her book!  I was super pumped because the author is only 18 years old! That's so insane! I am reviewing The Darkest Light by Ashley Earley.

As always, lets start with the synopsis!

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing Angelfall by Susan Ee. Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own!

As always, lets start with the synopsis!


It's been six weeks since the angels of the apocalypse destroyed the world as we know it. Only pockets of humanity remain. 

Savage street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. 

When angels fly away with a helpless girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back...
















First off, I'm just going to say that I absolutely loved this book!

I really didn't know what I was expecting going into this book, but it wasn't that. I've never read a book about Angels, and I found this one out be very interesting and well written.

I loved Penryn and Raffe, I really hope they can get past their differences and continue their relationship, because I totally love them together.

World-wise, this…

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing Painless by S.A. Harazin. Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book to review! All opinons are my own.


A first kiss. Falling in love. Going to prom. These are all normal things that most teenagers experience. Except for 17-year-old David Hart. His life is anything but normal and more difficult than most. Because of the disease that wracks his body, David is unable to feel pain. 

He has congenital insensitivity to pain with anhydrosis--or CIPA for short. One of only a handful of people in the world who suffer from CIPA, David can't do the things every teenager does. He might accidentally break a limb and not know it. If he stands too close to a campfire, he could burn his skin and never feel it. He can't tell if he has a fever and his temperature is rising. 

Abandoned by his parents, David now lives with his elderly grandmother who is dying. When David's legal guardian tells…
