The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

I actually cried while listening to the final chapter in this book because of the voice of one of these super minor characters who packed a huge emotional punch. It’s an important reminder of how a small thing, like a smile or a thank you, can make a life or death difference to someone else. It can make people feel seen, and if they feel seen, then maybe they’ll realize there is something worth fighting for when all their hope is lost. Read more →

The Project by Courtney Summers

In bookish circles, Summers is known for destroying her readers. Her books have many difficult situations, and not gonna lie, it’s hard to see Bea and Lo go through the things that they go through. Some of the things that happen in The Project are absolutely devastating and horrifying. These are things that no one should ever have to go through. Yet, even as Summers takes her readers to some really dark places in The Project, there is a sense of hope at the end of it. It’s not the kind of thriller with a WTF moment at the end that makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure of how to feel. It is a story where characters go through some horrendous things. Yet there is a sense that those who make it to the other side have a chance to heal and have a hope of a full future, which isn’t the case in many other novels I’ve read before. Read more →

Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon

Annika can’t help but find herself getting flashbacks to their week together last summer when Hudson shows up at her yoga studio. You get the idea. The thing is, even though she “hates” him, she is also certain he is more than the unfeeling person who found himself creating an app like Break Up. While this certainty that draws her closer to Hudson at every turn, the chemistry they share sizzles off the page even though the really steamy stuff doesn’t happen until three-quarters of the way through the book.
