Unwritten [Tara Gilboy]; Throwback Thursday

Unwritten by Tara Gilboy is the sort of book that I wish I'd had when I was a kid. I know, without question, that I would have fallen utterly in love with it to the point that it would be one of those books I look back on and love simply out of nostalgia. But, unlike…

Spectacle [Jodie Lynn Zdrok]; 2019 YA Releases

I'm actually really excited to read Spectacle by Jodie Lynn Zdrok, a fact that is ironically somewhat shocking considering the ominous nature of this book.

Corpse & Crown [Alisa Kwitney]; 2019 YA Releases

For as long as I can remember I have loved the story of Oliver Twist and so, coupled with my absolutely overwhelming adoration for retellings, it's really no wonder that I'm pretty desperate to get my hands on a copy of Corpse and Crown by Alisa Kwitney. Of course, I haven't read the first book in this series, but…
