Book Reviews

I wanted a place to put all my reviews so they could be easily accessed, and so that I could easily look back on what I’ve read without fishing through my posts. I’ll categorize them as the list grows. They will be nearly all young adult books. The majority will be contemporary young adult books because it serves as a study for what I write.

I’ll only review books that I like, really like, or love.
