A Snowbound Scandal | Jessica Lemmon
Pickpick

I love holiday romances so much, and this one checked all those boxes. Chase and Mimi‘s relationship isn‘t perfect, and their forced proximity allows them to confront their true feelings for each other. While I didn‘t love Chase‘s gruffness at first, as the snow and his icy attitude started to melt, I totally saw what made him so charming to Mimi in the first place.

I screamed when I saw this page. Oh my god, this adorable book has so many emotions. I think I could look at Jen Wang‘s art forever, and the story she created to go with this beautiful art was just as beautiful.

Wow wow wow! I had been looking forward to The Belles for over a year, and not only did the story not disappoint, but it actually blew my expectations out the window.

I have problems getting into short story collections but this is one of the best collections I‘ve read. It‘s weird and slightly magic and definitely creepy at times.

Oh man, I really wanted to like this more. I liked the diversity and Desi‘s relationship with her dad was so sweet, but I don‘t think her character grew as much as I had hoped. I think I wanted more focus on her grieving her mom‘s death that loomed over the story.

Woo girl, this collection is even better than the first. Deeply personal, yet entirely relatable and relevant. All women should read this book so we can all feel a little less alone in this world.

I loved that this was highly relatable and accessible, unlike a lot of poetry. It speaks to young women and I really wish I had something like this when I was in my teens.

I have mixed feelings about this book. The mystery/thriller had lots of good twists which helped keep the story interesting. There were surprises all the way to the end. Beside that the female characters were not written very well, the misogynistic and fat jokes were annoying, and the gore was often used for shock value. I hope the next book is just a bit more thoughtful and doesn't go for the lazy joke.

JoeStalksBeck I adored this book! The diary part was fascinating! 2y

This series is fantastic and honestly taught me more about the Civil Rights movement than my U.S. History class in high school. It was hard to read this at times especially after the protests in Charlottesville, but that's also why it's so important to read this book. In 2017 we're still fighting the same battles that John Lewis was fighting over 50 years ago. 😕

Such a great book. I haven't read a ton of YA about Muslim American teens, but this was a great introduction. There's definitely a trigger warning for sexual assault, and while it's not super graphic, it does play a role in the central narrative.

This is a great book that is part memoir, part advice. Alyssa has great stories of working with Obama and hilarious stories about battling IBS at the Vatican. But the story about her cat is the one that brought me to tears. This is also a good book to listen to when you need to remember better times in our country.

This was really good! Not at all what I expected, and the story really grips you until the end. No insta-love like in a lot of YA. You really get to develop the friendship between Ari & Dante over a year, and go through all their ups and downs. Definitely felt closer to a real love story.
