Dry: Because I needed another end of the world book

I listened to the Barnes and Noble podcast where Neal and Jarrod Shusterman discussed this book, and I was immediately hooked. Shusterman does an amazing job with dystopia, and so I just knew he'd do an amazing job with the drought apocalypse. And they did an amazing job. https://videopress.com/v/bx3TAizu?preloadContent=metadata Four Stars I can't decide if … Continue reading Dry: Because I needed another end of the world book

Thunderhead: the perfect follow up to Scythe

It's hard to put into words how good this series continues to be. The plot keeps expanding as Shusterman adds new perspectives. https://videopress.com/v/1dKjfT3Z?preloadContent=metadata Four Stars I also really enjoyed getting to see the Thunderhead's perspective on not only what's happening currently, but it's perspective on EVERYTHING. I love that the Thunderhead is completely good. I'm … Continue reading Thunderhead: the perfect follow up to Scythe

I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter

I read this book for a college class this semester which was exciting because YA books rarely are used in college classes since they're so often not considered "literature." BOO.

Great Goddesses: I love my Greek Girls

As the title so clearly declares, I'm a HUGE fan of Greek mythology. I've been especially interested in the women in Greek myths. They're not as explored as the male characters in the myths and often the mortal women don't have a voice in the stories. This is the second book I've read by Nikita … Continue reading Great Goddesses: I love my Greek Girls
