ARC Review: Tell Me When You Feel Something by Vicki Grant

Thank you so much to Penguin Teen and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Tell Me When You Feel Something! I really loved the summary of this book because not only do I love thrillers, but when I was in high school, my doctor kept telling me that I should go be one of those mock patients (I could never figure out how to apply, so it never happened, but it sounded like such a cool program). Overall, the premise was cool, but I had a hard time with the execution.

ARC Review: The Ivies by Alexa Donne

Thank you so much to Crown Books for Young Readers and Netgalley for letting me read an ARC of The Ivies! This book came out on May 25th, so make sure y’all go grab it ASAP! I always find college decisions and prep and the pressure that people put on themselves for it fascinating. I mean let’s also be real, I went to a crazy public high school school that also had Ivy quotas and people battling for class rank and everyone who wanted to be competitive was taking 8-10 APs, running clubs, playing sports and instruments, and just doing everything they could (besides sabotage) to get in where they wanted. We had our Harvards, our Yales, our MITs, our Princetons, our Browns, our Stanfords, a bunch of Dukes, along with all of the other crazy schools you can think of (I grew up in a college town, next to another university, with lots of people whose parents taught at one of the universities or worked in either of the university hospitals or big tech/pharma that we have around here, so lots of privilege and lots of opportunity for people to do some of those things they need to in order to go to one of those big name schools). Anyway, enough about my high school- let’s talk about The Ivies!

Book Review: Namesake by Adrienne Young

Ahhh y’all I finished the audiobook for Namesake and I have allllll the thoughts! I absolutely loved Fable last year (thank you Wednesday Books for letting me read an ARC of it!), so I tried to get an ARC of Namesake this year, and when I couldn’t, I grabbed the audiobook via scribd as soon as it came out and OMG it was so good!

Blog Tour: Covet by Tracy Wolff

Thank you so much to Turn the Page Tours and Entangled Teen for having me as a part of the Covet tour! I devoured Crave and Crush in about a day each, so I was sure I was going to love Covet when it came out on March 2nd (especially since I love Hudson and Grace) and I wasn’t disappointed at all! 

Special shoutout to Turn the Page Tours in general- there were some shipping issues/delays and my post was originally supposed to go live on March 3rd, but I didn’t get my copy of Covet until then, so there was no way for me to read it, review it, and put together some of my favorite quotes for y’all by then, so Nikole was so nice and accommodating and let me switch my post to today instead. If y’all are ever looking to work with a book tour company, I highly recommend Turn the Page! 

Also, make sure you check out all of the other great posts on the tour– AND there’s even a giveaway for a finished copy of Covet that ends on Monday, March 8th, so for sure get in on that! (USA only, unfortunately)

I had seen so many good things about Of Silver and Shadow on Book Twitter, so when I saw this tour, I had to try and be a part of it! And I’m so glad I was! This book was so good and had everything I want/love in a fantasy novel!

Thank you so much to Terminal Tours for having me as a part of this blog tour (make sure you check out everyone else’s stops on the tour too!) and for HMH teen for making this blog tour happen! I had seen so many things about Ink in the Blood before I signed up for this tour, but becoming a part of this tour was the catalyst I needed to read Ink in the Blood (which was amazing, so make sure y’all read that if you haven’t already) and then I read Curse of the Divine and man y’all, such a great book! Curse of the Divine was released on February 9th, so make sure y’all go check it out!
