  • Book Review: “Dumplin'” by Julie Murphy

    I’m a fat girl. As a fat girl, I enjoy reading books where the protagonist is also a fat girl, especially when they are portrayed as they should be – which is just like everyone else. Usually when the main character is fat, the book is all about how they are fat and what it’s […]

  • An Interview with Leigh Bardugo

    Before attending the BookExpo back in May, I made a list of the galleys that I wanted to pick up and starred those that were absolutely necessary for me to acquire or I would be sad and mopey for months. I only starred three titles, and one of those was Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I’ll […]

  • “Mad About the Hatter” Is a Quick, Fun Read

    So apparently Alice (as in the Alice) has a younger brother, Henry – a brother who has never believed Alice’s ridiculous stories of a magical place called Wonderland.

However, Lillian will stop at nothing to bring Lily back, so Lily must build up her strength – and her coven – so that she can even […]

  • “A Whole New World” Is Just More of the Same

    When I found out that Disney Publishing was releasing a series of YA books retelling classic Disney movies, I was excited. The idea of a series putting new twists onto familiar tales from my childhood really appealed to me, since the Disney versions are usually much more happily-ever-after than the source material. The first book […]

  • Are You Worthy? “Court of Fives” by Kate Elliott

    I’m very intrigued by the world that is introduced in Kate Elliott’s Court of Fives – a world where the ruling class of light-skinned Patrons and the lower class of darker-skinned Efeans are forbidden to intermarry, among other things. We catch glimpses of this world as main character Jessamy struggles to save her family from […]
