Hai Beautiful! Mysteriously delightful. As someone who has never read a Leigh Bardugo book, I will be the first to say that I now know what I have been missing out on and I am very disappointed that I hadn’t picked up one of her books sooner.

Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world […]

Chief Book Review 2020 Header - Chief by John Lyttle III | Spoiler-Free Novella Review

Hai Beautiful! An interesting premise… I want to thank John Lyttle for providing me with a copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review. The premise was so intriguing that I just had to check it out plus it was a very short and quick read. Blurb: Wisdom walks through the halls as a most unusual janitor in New York’s wealthiest building. I want to preface this review by saying that I wasn’t a big fan of aspects of […]

The Quiet At The End Of The World by Lauren James | Spoiler Free Book Review/ Chat

The Quiet At The End of The World Book Review 2020 Header - The Quiet At The End Of The World by Lauren James | Spoiler Free Book Review/ Chat

Hai Beautiful! I strangely love reading about end-of-the-world-style novels! I like the idea of pondering what might happen when the time does come. I love to hear the thoughts/ feelings of the characters as they experience the event, learning that they truly are the only ones left. Breaking free of the lies they’ve been brought up to believe and just facing the fact that everything might one day die, decay, fall apart and eventually cease to exist. How far would […]

Loveless by Alice Oseman | Spoiler Free Book Review

Loveless Book Review by Melissa Albert 2020 Header - Loveless by Alice Oseman | Spoiler Free Book Review

Hai Beautiful! I love Alice Oseman’s writing! I’ve been following Alice Oseman on Instagram and Twitter for years and as soon as I heard about Loveless, especially that it centres around an aro-ace protagonist, I knew I had to pick it up. I’ve never read a book about an aro-ace character and I have been so conditioned to expect a romance in just about every novel I pick up, it’s refreshing to know that this one will have a different […]

Hai Beautiful! This one was special!

Because of this, I filmed an entire reading vlog for this novel which will be posted on Saturday Aug. 8th!

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman | Spoiler-ish Book Review

Radio Silence Book Review Spoiler 2020 Header - Radio Silence by Alice Oseman | Spoiler-ish Book Review

Hai Beautiful! ♡♡♡ If there is anything I’ve gathered from reading every Alice Oseman novel to date, it is that she writes from a point of passion. Her novels are always about saving someone and rarely about romantic love. That’s what makes them perfect. Blurb: What if everything you set yourself up to be was wrong? Frances has been a study machine with one goal. Nothing will stand in her way; not friends, not a guilty secret – not even […]

Aurora Burning by Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review

Aurora Burning Book Review 2020 Header - Aurora Burning by Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review

Hai Beautiful! This one fell slightly short… I’m not gonna lie, I will purchase and read anything written by Amie or Jay either individually or as a collaborative duo. So even though Aurora Rising, didn’t live up to my expectations set by the Illuminae Files, there was something unique and carefree to the story that I loved it all the same. Blurb: Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in […]
