Frankly In Love by David Yoon Spoiler Book Review 2019 Header - Frankly In Love by David Yoon | Spoilery Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! Fake-dating tropes are cool… When done well… This book is the reason I don’t particularly like the fake-dating trope. Blurb High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo–his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents’ traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance–“Date Korean”–which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful–and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a […]

Heyo Bookaholics! The Perfect Amount of Spook! From the moment I started this novel, I knew it was going to be spectacular.

Monuments by Will Kostakis | Semi-Spoiler Book Review

Monuments Book Review Semi Spoiler 2019 Header - Monuments by Will Kostakis | Semi-Spoiler Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! There may be spoilers ahead! I picked up Monuments as it was The YA Room’s book club pick for the month of September. I had met the author, Will Kostakis, and really liked listening to him talk. He rambled about writing, identity and being an author which just made me want to work harder at writing to feel what he was describing. Blurb: All 16-year-old Connor is trying to do is avoid his ex-best friend when he stumbles […]

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte | Spoiler-Free Book Review

Four Dead Queens Spoiler Free Book Review 2019 Header - Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte | Spoiler-Free Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! You never really know what’s coming with this novel. I kept thinking about that one quote from the book launch where Astrid, prompted by a Harry Potter loving Amie Kaufman, said that Four Dead Queens is a novel about a “Slytherin dragging a Hufflepuff on an adventure”. Blurb: Seventeen-year-old Keralie Corrington may seem harmless, but in fact, she’s one of Quadara’s most skilled thieves and a liar. Varin, on the other hand, is an honest, upstanding citizen of […]

Wilder Girls Book Review 2019 Header - Wilder Girls by Rory Power | Spoiler Free Book Review

Heyo Bookaholics! It’s a true cover buy. Let’s begin with the most positive thing here, the cover of this novel is absolutely stunning!

Note (to my book swap buddy): Sara (@scientificstars [go follow her]), please don’t read […]

Dark Blade by Steve Feasey Book Review 2019 Header - Dark Blade by Steve Feasey | Spoiler Free Book Review

Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy of this novel from Bloomsbury publishing prior to the July 11th (UK)/ August 15th (ANZ) release. Heyo Bookaholics! The perfect new middle-grade obsession! Dark Blade by Steve Feasey is a well-executed, quick read of a novel, and although flawed, I find that many middle-grade novels are in order to keep the story moving and the reader engaged. Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson series. I would 100% recommend this novel […]
