Can Someone Love Too Much? There’s A Book About That. The Boy Who Loved Too Much: A True Story of Pathological Friendliness by Jennifer Latson

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★☆  4 stars I have a weakness for non-fiction that talks about tough topics. I spot a book about disability, being different, diversity, suffering, all that stuff… I click buy. Request. Read. That’s just who I am. Come on, does the cover not already capture you? How could someone love too much? How can there…

Sunday post #10 Yay, I've finished books!

This week flew by so fast! I didn’t even notice it. Linking up with the usual crew for the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog. ~ On The Blog ~ As usual, I’ve posted two reviews this week. I keep forgetting whether I gave The Slip two or three stars because it just… wasn’t very good. But Slaves of the Switchboard of Doom was brilliant and…

Is There Super Fun Scifi, But Not For Teens? YES. Slaves of the Switchboard of Doom by Bradley W. Schenck

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★★  5 stars If I were you, I’d just read this book already. But stick around, if you want to find out why. So let’s ignore the somewhat tacky cover for a bit. (I’m glad I can look past the cover. I’m better than that! But I know that I nearly didn’t click…

A Rock’n’roll Memoir About Learning To Love Yourself Dear Reflection by Jessica Bell

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬  4.5 stars Emotional review coming up. Get your napkins ready! When I requested this title, I was excited, because hey – a rock’n’roll teens memoir? Written by someone whose parents were actually musicians, bohemians? Man, that sounds good. Who wouldn’t want to read that? Then when I let it sit for…

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★✬☆  3.5 stars “So, writer, what sort of tale will you tell me tonight?” “Well, reader, get yourself some strong tea and a nightlight, because I have a warm retro tale about street urchins in the 1930’s and… magic.” “My my, writer, that sure sounds swell!” “Brace yourself, reader, it truly is, even…

Sunday post #7 It was a great reading week <3

Linking up with the usual crew for the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog. ~ On The Blog ~ This week I’ve only posted once, but it was a fun review of a book I didn’t really like so much. Sharing the review of The Finding of Martha Lost, or how I failed to find a spark in a story about secret underground libraries,…

Rogue mages, steampunk spells and secrecy – Brother’s Ruin by Emma Newman What looks like a beginning to a truly captivating series

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬  4.5 stars This review has been due for a while, I’m sorry, Emma Newman! (haha…) But here we go. Brother’s Ruin was a book I’d been waiting to read like no tomorrow! I was sadly denied an advance copy, so I had to ultimately wait for the release (like all mere mortals… kidding!),…
