Such a Fun Age

This is probably one of the more challenging book reviews to write for several reasons. Such a Fun Age tackles important topics of racial inequality, white privilege, and societal issues. These are never easy to approach so I do commend her for this. However, although it addresses these really important issues, I feel that itContinue reading “Such a Fun Age”

The Last Mrs. Parrish

True crime, thrillers, and murder mysteries are my absolute favorite genres. The Last Mrs. Parrish, although it’s a psychological thriller, in my opinion is not. I would say this book incorporates more drama than thrill or maybe even a slight concept of dark humor or just plain fiction. However, that doesn’t go to say thatContinue reading “The Last Mrs. Parrish”

Midnight Sun

If one good thing came from the 2020 quarantine, it was the release of Midnight Sign – or so I thought. If you’re a twi-hard fan then you’ve been waiting anxiously for almost a decade for this. Probably ever since Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 was released to read this book. There was even aContinue reading “Midnight Sun”
