Dragonfly Girl by Marti Leimbach | Book Review

I love picking up young adult books where the protagonist has a passion for something. Dragonfly Girl by Marti Leimbach appealed to me because the main character, Kira, is SO into science at basically the detriment of everything else.

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong | Book Review

I am always down for a good re-telling. Now, when we add in 1920s Shanghai, Shakespeare, and madness? I simply cannot resist. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong is an excellent young adult historical fantasy. Personally, I devoured this book and cannot stop recommending it. Also? I wish I had the second book right this instant. […]
