Does My Head Look Big In This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah – Review

Welcome everybody! Today’s book review is of Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah (Um I think they already got that in the title JR). This book gets a solid three stars. It is a YA Contemporary read and is also considered a diverse book because the main character is Muslim. I liked this book but there were some issues that made me give it three stars. … More Does My Head Look Big In This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah – Review

2019 Reading Challenges

Hi guys! How are you all doing today? I wanted to post about reading challenges that I’m taking part in this year. Last year, I joined the book blogging community quite late (December) so I didn’t have a chance to take part in any challenges. However this year, I’m jumping in headfirst and I hope I complete all the prompts by the end of the year. The three challenges I’m taking part in are: Popsugar’s 2019 Reading Challenge; Goodreads’ 2019 Reading Challenge; & Mommy Mannegren’s 2019 Reading Challenge. … More 2019 Reading Challenges

Rough Justice by Lisa Scottoline | Camino Island by John Grisham – Mini Review

Hello darlings, how are ya’ll doing today? I’m not having a migraine while trying to catch up on school and life having a great day if you’re wondering 😉 I’ve never had a reading slump (I think) so I’m not sure if that’s what I’m actually experiencing, but I’m having trouble reading books. All what I’m doing is skimming, and getting to the end because the story line seems meh. It’s really boring. Maybe I’ve read too many thrillers/crime? I would love to know what you think and any recommendations you have for humor books/light reads. Anyway, during my reading slump that isn’t a reading slump, I read a Rosato and Associates (not Rosato and DiNunzio, mind you, I love those) novel by Lisa Scottoline which grated on my nerves, honestly. I also listened to a John Grisham book, Camino Island and I also disliked that one with good reason. I don’t feel like writing a whole review for each, so here you go: two mini ones. … More Rough Justice by Lisa Scottoline | Camino Island by John Grisham – Mini Review

The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray – Review

There are spoilers in this review, but I’ll give a heads-up so that you can skip that part if you want 🙂
Book: The Gilded Cage
Author: Lucinda Gray
Rating: ★★½ 
Summary:  After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen-year-old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper-class England in the 1820s, is shattered when her brother mysteriously drowns. Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can’t accept that her brother’s death was an accident. 
A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There’s a rumor, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham. Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother’s killer claim her life, too?  … More The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray – Review

Accused by Lisa Scottoline – Review

Book: Accused (Rosato and DiNunzio)
Author: Lisa Scottoline
Rating: ★★★★☆
Summary: Mary DiNunzio has just been promoted to partner and is about to take on her most unusual case yet, brought to the firm by a thirteen-year-old genius with a penchant for beekeeping. Allegra Gardner’s sister Fiona was murdered six years ago, and it seemed like an open-and-shut case: the accused, Lonnie Stall, was seen fleeing the scene; his blood was on Fiona and her blood was on him; most damningly, Lonnie Stall pleaded guilty. But Allegra believes Lonnie is innocent and has been wrongly imprisoned. The Gardner family is one of the most powerful in the country and Allegra’s parents don’t believe in reopening the case, so taking it on is risky. But the Rosato & Associates firm can never resist an underdog. Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take a team of unstoppable female lawyers, plus one thirteen-year-old genius, to find out. … More Accused by Lisa Scottoline – Review
