Recently, I’ve been reading a few different classics. I don’t think anyone cares what I have to say about them, so I won’t give them their own review. But I need content, so I’m wrapping them all up into one post.
They Both Die at the End has one of the most fascinating concepts I have seen in a long time. I couldn’t wait to dig into this book and see if it lived up to the premise.
All the Light We Cannot See completely challenged the way I think about book reviews. It has earned so many awards and become a literary phenomenon, so why was it so hard for me to review? Find out.
One Stupid Thing is a young adult thriller by Nashville based writer, musician, and professor named Stewart Lewis. For me, it was the almost book. So many interesting concepts were established, but did it pan out like I hoped?
One of Us is Lying, the debut Young Adult suspense novel from Karen McManus, is highly recommended and cherished. Does it live up to the hype? Is it the great mystery of the decade?
The Fortunate Ones is a novel about my hometown, Nashville, written by a Nashville native. It is a novel that seeks to examine a lot of issues. Does it do that well or did Tarkington miss the mark?
I recently finished reading the first Mistborn trilogy. I don’t necessarily like doing individual reviews of sequels, so I wrapped up my thoughts on the whole series. Did it hold up to the hype?
A Touch of Death is the debut dystopian science fiction novel from Rebecca Crunden. It is full of wonderful things while also having areas for improvement in the follow up books.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, now a Hulu series starring Reese Witherspoon, is a massive literary hit. I read it over the course of three days this Christmas. Was that because it was so good I couldn’t stop reading? Or because it was so bad I had to power through? Find out.
I really loved Stephen Chbosky’s work with Perks, but Imaginary Friend, his follow up, is a different beast entirely. Did it live up to my expectations or did it fall flat?
