Compulsion by Martina Boone | Book Review

When I look at the cover of Martina Boone’s YA debut, Compulsion, I immediately think of autumn what with the orange color scheme and all of the leaves on the cover.

Random by Tom Leveen | Book Review

Anyways. Random appealed to me because the original cover has an iPhone cord looped into a noose and well, that’s really eye catching. Also, it is super short and let’s be honest, short books always appeal to me these days. Frankly though, I was mostly underwhelmed with Random.

Chasing Before by Lenore Appelhans | Audiobook Review

I picked up Chasing Before because I was desperate to see what happens next. I wanted more Felicia and Neil. I decided to listen to the book because I liked the sound of Holloway’s voice and also because I am so time limited when it comes to eARCs, so, audiobooks makes the TBR more manageable and Lenore’s book was something I knew I needed to read.

Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young | Book Review

Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young is a book that I have waited way too long to read.

Oh my goodness, it is hard for me to put into words just how much I loved this collaboration and how much I want there to be more collaborations between Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young.
