Belzhar is a very difficult book for me to review. I’ve been sitting here in front of my laptop for more than half an hour just fuming and raging inside because of this book. Because I cannot talk about the cons just yet, let me just tell you guys what this book is about. This book is about Jam. Jam’s full name is Jamaica; and yep, her parents named her after the place where she was conceived. As amusing as that is, Belzhar is not an […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Today we’re going I’m going to attempt to discuss an difficult and ever so present in our modern day society issue: internalized misogyny. I consider this concept to be defined as misogynistic beliefs held by females to other females. It’s based on negative stereotypes and sexism rampant and perpetuated in society.  Basically it’s misogynistic behavior done by women themselves.  It’s pure girl hate and is very toxic in nature. Slut shaming […]

If you love a good revenge story, this is definitely a book you want to check out.  Gone Too Far starts off on a promising note. Piper Woods discovers a notebook on the ground on her way to class one day, and what she thought was a generic notebook that probably contains someone’s finals notes actually is filled with the true stories about several of the students that attend Piper’s high […]

I’m going to keep this review real short and sharp because in all honesty, this book is not worth my time. 1. The main character is basically everything you don’t want in a person. Introducing Aidan Flood, whiny, rude and absolutely inept. I get that Aidan was bullied a lot, but maaaaan I was getting sick of Aidan and his constant whining about LITERALLY EVERYTHING. His narrative voice was most definitely not like a 17 year old because he felt more immature than my eight year […]
