Review: Ways to Disappear by Idra Novey

Review: Ways to Disappear by Idra Novey

I finished this book just about two weeks ago, and I’m stilling trying to figure out a way to write about it. Ways to Disappear is Idra Novey’s debut novel, and focuses on an American translator from Pittsburgh, Emma, who translates only the work of one author: Brazilian writer Beatriz Yagoda. Famous in her hey day, Beatriz now spends more […]

My True Love Gave To Me: Stories Edited by Stephanie Perkins

My True Love Gave To Me: Stories Edited by Stephanie Perkins

In a weird turn of events, two things I’m rarely drawn to (YA and short stories) combined to give me just what I needed this December! My True Love Gave To Me came out last year, and while I was vaguely aware that it existed, I was hardly running to read it. But while I’ve been finishing up a very long […]

Review: You by Caroline Kepnes

Review: You by Caroline Kepnes

A few months back, I wrote an article about all of the books that scared the master of horror himself, Stephen King.

This Week in “Stop Comparing Things to Gone Girl: Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

Ah, the disappointing moment when you don’t enjoy something nearly as much as you thought you would. But then again, we’d be like Stepford Bloggers if we all liked everything, wouldn’t we? I think it’s actually more interesting if I don’t like the book as much as other people, or as much as I thought I would. Which brings me to Luckiest Girl Alive. It […]

Review: Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

Review: Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

Daisy and Nick and Helena and Hughes and Ed. Endless summers, five people, one family with layers of secrets between them. Tigers in Red Weather is always on lists of books that are ~perfect for summer~ but I’ve always missed it. When I finally saw it at a used bookstore, I grabbed it up, and was sucked in pretty much […]
