When We Collided Full Review

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Release Date: April 5, 2016

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

Overall Thoughts: A lovely YA-Contemporary which brings up discussion on mental health & makes family a major part of the story. Jonah & Vivi’s relationship as it progresses, helps them both when they reach difficulties and come to grow because of it! My only issue was that at points I found it difficult to connect w/ Vivi!

Giant Days Vol. 2 Full Review

Publisher: Boom! Box

Release Date: April 12, 2016

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Starhalf star--Book Blog

Overall Thoughts: This volume definitely focused more on the girl’s academics and relationships! While I did enjoy the more serious route, I still felt I needed to see more of the adventures these girls went on + the differing art-style 1/2 way through didn’t make this feel the same as Volume 1!

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers

Release Date: May 3,2016

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

Overall Thoughts: This YA-Contemporary centers around Andie & what happens when her summer doesn’t go as planned! If your looking for a summer read w/ friendship/family I highly recommend this! My only issue was the length & at points the story’s pacing was quite slow!
