Let’s Chat: None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio

Let’s Chat: None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio

“That was When I realized that life was a multiple-choice test with two answers: Male and Female, And I was None Of The Above.” THE STORY: Lisa: This book was so different than I thought it would be. I was actually hesitant to read it, strictly because of all the hype it was receiving. But when Becca said she was ready to start this one, I decided now was the right time. We jumped in and we both immediately fell… Read more »

Let’s Chat: Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly

Let’s Chat: Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly

“Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is EXACTLY on point with how I would define this book. I think people will flock to this book and totally love it! I think it will be a big hit! Sadly, for me that didn’t happen. I finished reading this book, put it down… and just kind of stared at the wall. What had I just read? Zoe’s parents are recently divorced, causing her to relocate to a new school…. Read more »

99 Days was a must read on my Summer list! I have been very curious about Molly’s story, especially after seeing some mixed reviews. Molly is home for the Summer, after leaving her hometown after some pretty bad things went down the year before this is the first time she is returning in over a year and no one has forgotten why she left in the first place. I absolutely loved the format of this story, it is literally told… Read more »

Waiting on Wednesday: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro + Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales

Waiting on Wednesday: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro + Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.   LISA’S PICK:     Why I’m waiting: This was cover love at first sight. Then I saw “wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school” and, well… when I see “Connecticut”, I always read it. Books rarely mention CT, so when they do I get a little overly excited about it. I love reading… Read more »
