"Matched"

As much as I love books, I’ll admit that sometimes it’s hard to be a reader; especially in genres like dystopia.

"Unraveling"

Unraveling is Elizabeth Norris’ debut novel and venture into the YA genre, and while certainly not perfect, I found myself on the edge of my seat here. 16-year-old Janelle Tenner shouldn’t be alive.

And that brings me to my first problem with the novel. It’s labeled as a “dystopian” novel, but it’s not. Like… Read More Under the Never Sky

The Book Thief is one of the more intriguing and uniquely written books I’ve read, following a Book Thief, a little girl named Liesel and the spark that leads to the fire that began World War Two. It’s a small… Read More "The Book Thief"
