uncaged-wallflower-by-jennae-cecelia-review1.Uncaged Wallflower by Jennae Cecelia

Uncaged Wallflower Full Review

Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

Release Date: October 6, 2016

Pages: 70

My Rating:★★★★★

Overall Thoughts: An inspiring collection of poetry! Filled with such positivity, Uncaged Wallflower had me hopeful and inspired! It was a spectacular read to start off the new year! Highly recommend!

a-list-of-cages-by-robin-roe2.A List Of Cages by Robin Roe

A List Of Cages Full Review

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Release Date: January 10, 2017

Pages: 320

My Rating: ★★★★☆ ½

Overall Thoughts: Roe’s debut is not one to miss! Adam and Julian (Adam’s foster-brother) find themselves meeting again after some time apart! A List Of Cages tells the story of the power of friendship and kindness, even when facing the most difficult situations. This novel is heart-breaking *discusses abuse & neglect* but you will feel so attached to these characters, even the minor ones through Roe’s spectacularly written dual POV.

frostblood-by-elly-blake3.Frostblood by Elly Blake (Frostblood Saga #1)

Frostblood Full ARC Review

Publisher: Little Brown Books For Young Readers

Release Date: January 10, 2017

Pages: 384

My Rating: ★★★★☆ ½

Overall Thoughts: A fantastic start to a new fantasy series! Blake delivers great character dynamics which is clearly seen between Ruby and Arcus! History and politics play a huge role in the world. The division/hierarchy between the Firebloods and Frostbloods was wonderfully done and its clear its not all black and white which was one of my favorite aspects! The plot while slow at times, definitely keeps you hooked as you learn more about Ruby and the world she’s in! 

crystal-storm-by-morgan-rhodes-review4.Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes (Falling Kingdoms #5)

Crystal Storm Full Review

Publisher: Razorbill

Release Date: December 13, 2016

Pages: 379

My Rating: ★★★★☆

Overall Thoughts: Not the strongest novel in the series in my opinion, however it is very character driven and expands even more on the world/magic Rhodes has built thus far! The slow pacing/plotting and introduction to certain characters/motives really made the tone of this novel feel rather off than previous novels! However, the ending definitely will leave you eager for Book 6!

Take The Key And Lock Her Up5.Take The Key And Lock Her Up by Ally Carter (Embassy Row #3)

Take The Key And Lock Her Up Full Review

Publisher: Scholastic Press

Release Date: December 27, 2016

Pages: 336

My Rating: ★★★★☆

Overall Thoughts: Carter delivers such originality to her stories, there are twists and turns you don’t see coming. There are new characters introduced just in this final novel that Carter manages to create so memorably! Grace’s repetitive narrative, lack of side-characters prevalent in previous novels and overly cryptic characters made this novel rather confusing at times due to lack of info which made this a little disappointing! However, Carter ties up the story delivering a satisfying conclusion to Grace’s adventures on Embassy Row!

history-is-all-you-left-me-by-adam-silvera6.History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

History Is All You Left Me Full Review

Publisher: Soho Teen

Release Date: January 17, 2017

Pages: 294

My Rating:★★★★☆ ½

Overall Thoughts: Told in Griffin’s POV’s  (History & Today) we come to understand how his best-friend  +first boyfriend Theo, died. Through out this novel are themes of love friendship, love/loss + acceptance. Through the writing the characters truly come to life. This is a gem of a story you don’t want to miss!

2017 Book Blog Goals {Bookish Goals}

bookish-goals-2017Happy New Year! 🎉✨

I cannot believe 2017 is finally here & 2016 just flew by!

A lot of memorable things happened in 2016 here on the blog and from book blogging in general! From creating new features to going to book festivals & meeting bloggers, reading awesome books, etc.!

It’s been so much fun sharing my thoughts on books & interacting with so many amazing bookish people! 😀💖

Today I’m happy to share with you my book blog goals or bookish goals for the year of 2017!

1.Review more diversely

In the year of 2016, if your active on the book community on twitter, you may have noticed a lot of discussion on Diversity in books and Diverse reading as a whole. With that said, I will definitely be making an effort to read from more diverse authors and in general reach for diverse stories!

Looking at what I read in 2016, while there were so many amazing books I read, I definitely noticed I didn’t read from many diverse authors! That will change!

I’ve already compiled a list of 2017 YA Diverse Reads that I’m looking forward to & will definitely read this year!

Not only will I make an effort to read from diverse authors, but I will also make an effort to read outside of YA! While that is the primary focus of my blog, I have literary/historical fiction books + graphic novels I’ve been wanting to read for quite some time (or haven’t finished yet) and really want to read + review!

So overall you will absolutely be seeing more diverse reads on the blog! 😄✨💖💕

+ I have a Diverse 2017 Winter YA Books Post coming soon!!

literary-listens-24hryabookblog-feature-banner2.Expand On My New Blog Feature

If you missed it, I created a blog post to start a new feature on the blog called Literary Listens! It mainly was an introduction post recommending podcasts that I love based on YA Books and I really hope to expand the feature in 2017 with more recommendations based on YA Books, discussions on my favorite podcasts and storytelling!

I adore podcasts, so It was definitely a feature I had tons of fun creating & I’m excited to see where its headed!

3.Read 15 Books

As with 2016, I made this a reading goal for myself to read at least 15 books! With so many new releases and not wanting to stress myself over what my reading goal should be, I feel 15 reads is definitely manageable!

4.Continue Writing

I participated in my very 1st Nanowrimo in 2016! While I didn’t make it to 50K on my original YA Fantasy idea, it sparked a new YA Fantasy idea I’ve been starting to draft and am absolutely loving! I’ve been making soundtracks/mood boards for it and I really hope to continue working on the idea this year! A goal in the works is that I’m aiming to write 1 chapter each month!

Do you have any 2017 Bookish Goals? Lets discuss in the comments!! 😀

Set to be released May 30, 2017 from Simon Pulse, this YA Contemporary is “A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married.

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.”

Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland Review

our-chemical-hearts-krystal-sutherlandOur Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland

Publisher: G.P. Putnams Sons Books For Young Readers

Release Date: October 4, 2016

Pages: 313

Summary: Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can’t-eat-can’t-sleep kind of love that he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he’s been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything’s about to change.

Grace isn’t who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys’ clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It’s obvious there’s something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn’t your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland’s brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.

My Rating: ★★★★☆ ½

My Thoughts: Sutherland delivers an engaging and honest tale of first love!

Sutherland brings such life and depth to her characters, which was definitely one of the highlights of this novel!

And through her writing she made them flawed, realistic, and overall enjoyable to read about regardless if they were minor/central characters. All were wonderfully written!

Henry has a core group of friends: Lola & Murray. Quite a central part of this story and through the ups and downs, they are always there to help each other. The strong elements of friendship in this novel was definitely another highlight!

The plot itself is well paced and definitely has elements of mystery to it. I loved the humor weaved into this novel. This book definitely had me laughing!!

It had its dark moments, but Sutherland balanced both humor/wit and serious elements perfectly.

While this novel is tackles a topic I’ve read about in YA Contemporary before :”First Love”, it was unique because its about first love but then again it isn’t! It definitely tackles all the aspects of awkward first love, but centers more about life and personal growth, which I loved!! ❤

Additionally, I loved the aspect of Henry and Grace’s relationship that revolved around Henry coming to understand a universally important message: Its important to love someone for who they are not who you think they are or who you expect them to be.

As for writing style, being in 1st person reading from Henry’s POV not only made Our Chemical Hearts engaging+ a blast to read, but overall delivered a unique voice to this story!

However my only minor issue, was that the ending felt a little rushed!

This novel captured my heart, broke it, but golden seams brought it back together again!! 😍💖✨

Our Chemical Hearts is an unforgettable tale with elements of friendship and mystery that takes the reader on a journey of first love and everything that comes with it!

The Universe Of Us by Lang Leav Review

the-universe-of-us-lang-leavThe Universe Of Us by Lang Leav

Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing

Release Date: October 4, 2016

Pages: 240

Summary: Lang Leav presents a completely new collection of poetry with a celestial theme in The Universe of Us.

Planets, stars, and constellations feature prominently in this beautiful, original poetry collection from Lang Leav.  Inspired by the wonders of the universe, the best-selling poetess writes about love and loss, hope and hurt, being lost and found.  Lang’s poetry encompasses the breadth of emotions we all experience and evokes universal feelings with her skillfully crafted words.

My Rating: ★★★★☆ ½

My Thoughts: Another delightful book of poetry from Lang Leav!

Having read Love & Misadventure from her earlier this year, I was eager to read her latest book & I was not disappointed!

While themes remain the same from her previous work, she effortlessly weaves together such gorgeous celestial imagery.

I’ve always adored quotes involving stars + the universe and reading these poems reminded me how they can be used to paint such a moving picture of love and loss with each and every word.

I tabbed many of the poems b/c they were just written so beautifully! I can definitely see myself re-reading these poems again & again in the future!

My only issue was that some poems don’t have a celestial/space theme which is what I expecting for all of them.

Regardless, they were all written beautifully, really capture such emotions and tell a story with each and every line.

Lovely and captivating imagery of the stars and universe help to tell tales of love and loss in Leav’s latest novel.
Highly recommend! Its a rather quick and overall enjoyable read. ❤

Forest Of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal Review

forest-of-memory-by-mary-robinette-kowalForest Of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal

Publisher: Tor Books

Release Date: March 8, 2016

Pages: 88

Summary: Katya deals in Authenticities and Captures, trading on nostalgia for a past long gone. Her clients are rich and they demand items and experiences with only the finest verifiable provenance. Other people’s lives have value, after all.

But when her A.I. suddenly stops whispering in her ear she finds herself cut off from the grid and loses communication with the rest of the world.

The man who stepped out of the trees while hunting deer cut her off from the cloud, took her A.I. and made her his unwilling guest.

There are no Authenticities or Captures to prove Katya’s story of what happened in the forest. You’ll just have to believe her…

My Rating: ★★★★☆

My Thoughts: A captivating and mysterious short story where technology has become a fundamental part of everyday life.

Having listened to audio drama podcasts recently (many in the vein of quirky sci-fi/fantasy) I was easily transported into this Dystopian/Futuristic Pacific Northwest.

Centering around a futuristic world where AI Tech is a part of everyday life, Katya Gould, the main character, recounts her story on a typewriter of what happened to her when she found herself in a forest with her connection to her AI tech mysteriously cut-off and how she gets tangled with a mysterious character who is hunting deer.

Katya’s recollection of this moment in her life was written in such a unique way. There are misspellings/typos throughout this short story and I felt they really tied into how this world with so much tech. had influenced Katya as a character and the imperfections of memory.

Another aspect that made this short story so much fun to read was the overall concept. Katya is an antiquities dealer who trades objects (mostly tech) that are vintage or everyday objects we have today, such as books, that have been used/have lived through experiences and are seen as nostalgic to people in this world.
This novella brings up fascinating ideas in such a short amount of time such as man and machine, connecting with nature, and the importance of memory. The ending is rather open ended, but I felt so connected to this world in such a short amount of time.

However I did take away a star b/c the pacing felt slow at times and I wish Katya’s job dealing with Authenticities was given a bigger role because it was such a fascinating concept!

Overall a mysterious, unique and immersive story that I highly recommend. Katya’s POV will keep you reading from start to finish as you uncover more about this peculiar world!

The Female Of The Species by Mindy McGinnis Review

the-female-of-the-sepciesThe Female Of The Species by Mindy McGinnis

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Release Date: September 20, 2016

Pages: 344

Summary: Alex Craft knows how to kill someone. And she doesn’t feel bad about it. When her older sister, Anna, was murdered three years ago and the killer walked free, Alex uncaged the language she knows best. The language of violence.

While her crime goes unpunished, Alex knows she can’t be trusted among other people, even in her small hometown. She relegates herself to the shadows, a girl who goes unseen in plain sight, unremarkable in the high school hallways.

But Jack Fisher sees her. He’s the guy all other guys want to be: the star athlete gunning for valedictorian with the prom queen on his arm. Guilt over the role he played the night Anna’s body was discovered hasn’t let him forget Alex over the years, and now her green eyes amid a constellation of freckles have his attention. He doesn’t want to only see Alex Craft; he wants to know her.

So does Peekay, the preacher’s kid, a girl whose identity is entangled with her dad’s job, though that does not stop her from knowing the taste of beer or missing the touch of her ex-boyfriend. When Peekay and Alex start working together at the animal shelter, a friendship forms and Alex’s protective nature extends to more than just the dogs and cats they care for.

Circumstances bring Alex, Jack, and Peekay together as their senior year unfolds. While partying one night, Alex’s darker nature breaks out, setting the teens on a collision course that will change their lives forever.

My Rating: ★★★★☆ ½

My Thoughts: A powerful + important read! Highly Recommend!

Note: This novel discusses rape/rape culture and sexual assault. There is also mention of animal abuse. Be aware if those are triggers for you.

She discusses rape/rape culture honestly + brings up very important topics! Even after closing the book, this book still has me thinking! There is so much to this story from its underlying messages to its complex main characters.

McGinnis writing style is spectacular! She weaves in a lot of symbolism/metaphors + through her writing which connects her 3 POV’s extremely well. Having read/loved her Not A Drop To Drink duology, it was interesting to read this novel and compare from her shift of Sci-Fi Dystopia to Contemporary.

The main characters Alex, Peekay & Jack all had their own POVS and were wonderfully written. McGinnis’s first person POV really brings these characters to life.

Alex gets to know Peekay and Jack over the course of this novel. Keeping herself isolated, she learns about relationships and friendships, and comes to understand how her acts of revenge are affecting her mentally/emotionally. Alex does becomes Peekay’s best friend and it was wonderful to see from her POV, the compassionate/loving side Alex usually keeps hidden, when she begins working at an animal shelter.

Peekay (Clarie) gives the reader an inside look at how female vs. female behavior can be harmful. Throughout this novel, Peekay becomes more aware of how her behavior can really skew her view on others and why its important to change that.

Jack is very much meant to show the reader an inside look at the “boys will be boys” statement. He changes over the course of this novel and begins to take initiative and look at how his behavior could be harmful to women (like Alex and his former girlfriend Branley.) Additionally, through out this novel he tells himself how much he wants to be a better person and really works towards doing so.

While I loved each of the 3 MCs equally, Alex was my favorite. She murders those who commit horrible acts of rape and sets to make things right considering her sister is no longer with her, due to being raped herself. She wants to have close relationships with others, but struggles because of what she’s lost (not only her sister, but also her family which is now broken), due to the dark murders she’s committed.

My only minor issue was the pacing in some parts.

This is a novel that will leave you thinking long after you’ve finished. The raw + poetic writing style keeps you connected to these characters +  gets you thinking about these  important/mature dark topics that are sadly still around us.

An immersive YA Contemporary which handles very tough subjects, but overall delivers a very important discussion of rape/rape-culture.

Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson Review

17564519Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)

Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Release Date: September 22, 2015

Pages: 436

Summary: Gold is in my blood, in my breath, even in the flecks in my eyes.

Lee Westfall has a strong, loving family. She has a home she loves and a loyal steed. She has a best friend—who might want to be something more.
She also has a secret.

Lee can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. She has kept her family safe and able to buy provisions, even through the harshest winters. But what would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it.

When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west to California—where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.

My Rating: ★★★★☆

My Thoughts: The Gold Rush comes to life in Carson’s YA Historical Fiction/Fantasy mash-up!

Leah/Lee’s 1st person POV really transports the reader to the era of the Gold Rush. Additionally, the wild west elements really show the gritty/strenuous journey of traveling during this time period!

Carson does a fantastic job at slowly weaving in the light fantasy elements (Lee’s gold sensing ability) with historical fiction while still making it an immersive + rich world!

There’s also discussion about women, considering Lee dresses up as a boy for a majority of the novel, with a lot of discussion of how she views herself and begins to question if she should stay disguised or not when she goes to California.

I will admit my rating is low for a few reasons:
1.The pacing was really slow for me + dragged in some parts (mostly on the journey)
2. Lee’s magic isn’t used as much as I expected  + isn’t given much explanation either
3. I wanted more from the plot 

Regardless I will definitely be reading the sequel! The 1st person POV made the novel feel very immersive and I was really able to connect with Leah and her struggles as a character. Her overall character and character-development/growth along the way was the best part of this entire novel. Additionally, the elements of mystery and suspense made the novel fun + enjoyable.

I loved reading how Leah slowly but surely became friends with the people on her journey, considering this takes place over numerous months, it made sense that the development of those relationships took quite some time.

Carson does a phenomenal job at creating the atmosphere/setting of the Gold Rush and weaving in “Wild West” elements and the small hints of fantasy. They all flowed very well together.

Overall an enjoyable 1st book in the trilogy + great setting! While the pacing + plot suffer a little, I’m definitely interested to see where the story goes!
