Yes hello, here is another book that I am *screaming into the void* about because it was so good, I can’t possibly string together a coherent sentence about it. But let’s try because that’s the joy of reviewing books!Continue reading

Book Review: The Fear
What’s your biggest fear?
When a meme starts to circulate in a small fishing town, local teenagers start to share what they think the worst way to die would be. Falling, drowning, being stabbed – all terrifying thoughts, yet fun and games when it’s an online trend to be discussed in the hallways between classes.Continue reading
Book Review: Kiss & Tell
A book about a boy band featuring a gay main character? Yes, please! When I first saw Kiss & Tell by Adib Khorram I was so excited and just knew it would be a fun read, and while it absolutely was, it also dealt with a lot of heavy themes as well, such as homophobia, online harassment, and fetishization.Continue reading

Review: Clown in a Cornfield
“Quinn Maybrook just wants to make it until graduation. She might not make it to morning.”
When I first heard about Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare, I had two immediate thoughts: 1) this book is going to be terrifying, and 2) I absolutely had to read it. Needless to say, I was over the moon when I received an early digital copy, and friends, it did not disappoint.
Blog Tour: Mayhem
When I saw that Mayhem by Estelle Laure was billed as a “supernatural feminist YA novel” I was immediately intrigued. It sounded like the type of book that I would love, and while the story was good, I ended up feeling like it would have made a better movie than a book (Gasp! I know!). In my defense, the author said they were inspired by the movie The Lost Boys (which I haven’t seen, so I can’t confirm or deny any similarities here).

As part of my blog tour stop for The Grey Sisters with Penguin Random House Canada, I also did a Q&A with Jo Treggiari about her wonderful book. She was kind enough to answer these questions over email, and provide some more insight into the story and its characters.
