17 First Kisses by Rachael Allen | Book Review

17 First Kisses by Rachael Allen is a book that I was really sleeping on. I actually regret that because this book was so good — even the parts that were genuinely difficult to read. This another book that I had picked up while I was on my streak of throwback contemporary young adult books. […]

Heat Of The Moment by Lauren Barnholdt | Book Review

Lauren Barnholdt’s Heat Of The Moment is the first of Barnholdt’s Moment Of Truth trilogy. It is also the first Barnholdt book I’ve ever read.

It’s a thoughtful contemporary debut about a girl who […]
