The Arts Help Protagonists Cope With Plenty of Drama // Mini-Reviews

Noteworthy (Riley Redgate) | Goodreads | 4.5 stars I mainly picked this up because it looked like it had an interesting concept that could go horribly wrong or wonderfully right; luckily, I think it was the latter.

Change Can Be Scary and Wonderful All at Once // Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

This series is an odd one for me – I love it, and whenever I’m reading the books, I love them, but when I’m not reading them, I worry that my opinion is wrong or has changed. What if I don’t like it anymore? That was definitely a worry coming into this third and final … More Change Can Be Scary and Wonderful All at Once // Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

I added a lot of challenges this year, but I tried to pick reasonable numbers so that … More All the Challenges for the New Year! // Challenges 2018

How to Keep a Boy From Kissing You (Tara Eglington) | Goodreads | 4.5 stars This was such a delightful surprise! It looked like fluffy fun coming in, but it still exceeded my expectations. There was a lot more friendship awesomeness in this book, for example. Protagonist Aurora has a tight-knit group of friends which … More I Am a Horrible Reviewer But Sometimes I Do Actually Review // Mini-Reviews

The Joy of Finding Your Bookish Twin // The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

I came into this book with kind of low expectations – well, not nearly as high as many people who were obsessed with Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I thought the book was delightful enough, but I didn’t love it as much as the rest of the blogosphere seemed to, so I didn’t let … More The Joy of Finding Your Bookish Twin // The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
