I was so incredibly excited to get this book! After reading All of Us Villains, I was hooked, and I needed to know how this fight-to-the-death was going to end! This is the final book in the All of Us Villains duology, and it is not a stand alone. If you haven’t read book 1, you need to because it’s amazing, and then come read All of Our Demise!
This story picks up right where we left off with Villains. The competitors have been pushed into two thought-processes. One group is fighting to bring down the curse while the other players are individually trying to become the victor. As the story progresses, there’s magic, danger, friendships, romance, and twists to keep you on your toes!

This coming-of-age novel was a thought-provoking story of being able to be who you are in front of, not only those you love, but everyone. I appreciated the difficult decisions that both Tanner and Sebastian had to face, and the journey they both go on.
When Tanner’s family moves to the heavily Mormon area of Utah, his parents ask him to keep his bisexuality a secret, even from his new best friend Autumn. Tanner is able to do this until Autumn pushes him into a creative writing class, where he develops a crush on a Mormon boy, and his creative writing becomes an autobiography.

When I read American Royals, I fell in love with this alternate United States world. I loved the characters, the family, and the problems. I, of course, gobbled up book 2, Majesty, when it came out, and THEN, book 3 came out, and I was ecstatic!
This book was such a growing point for so many characters. Like the other books, the story is told through a variety of POVs. I enjoyed each of them and found myself particularly interested in the growing friendship between Nina and Daphne. Daphne is one of my least favorite characters in this series, and I almost found myself liking her in this book.

This is the second book in the Fracture Fables series, and I loved it just as much as the first one! I would absolutely recommend reading book 1 in the series, A Spindle Splintered. It’s fantastic, and it really sets up what happens in this book.
Zinnia is our MC through this series. She’s got a rare medical condition that she knows is going to eventually kill her, but when she falls into fairy tale versions of Sleeping Beauty, her health improves, and she finds that she gets to be the hero for the fated Sleeping Beauties.

This was such an exciting start to a new series! I loved the characters, the setting, the atmosphere, and the world!

For 10 years, Raelle felt completely at home and loved, except for the queen. The queen had never accepted Raelle, and on her birthday, the queen secretly betroths Raelle to King Veras of the North.

Wow, this book was so interesting, and also kind of terrifying LOL! Serenity is a genius and then some. Looking for her dad on the Harvard campus, she accidently falls into another version of reality, and there is danger everywhere…
This is a YA story, but Serenity is such a mature young lady, it didn’t even feel YA. She is such a different main character. With her incredible intelligence she observes things others miss, and it makes her narration fascinating.

This story was so fun. It lived up to book 1 in every way for me. I loved the continuation of Izumi’s story, and the new characters we are introduced to!
In Tokyo Dreaming, Izumi is living in Tokyo, and her mom is there with her, which I was so happy about! When her father, the Crown Prince of Japan, proposes to her mother, it creates quite an uproar in Japan. It is not considered a good match, based on how Izumi behaves. So, Izumi becomes determined to follow rules and turn herself into the perfect Japanese Princess.

This is a YA fantasy about a young girl, Joan, who finds out she’s a monster and the boy she was on a date with is a monster-hunter. Unfortunately, the way she finds out is pretty awful, and she has to run for her life!

When a post about sharing your biggest fear of how to die goes viral, peoples start dying, and it’s in the way their worst fear was described. This was absolutely terrifying!

What We Harvest was an absolutely fantastic book that had elements of family and friendship, magic, and creepy horror. It was the exact amount of horror I can handle too! 🤣 This was an outstanding debut from Ann Fraistat!
Wren lives in Hollow’s End, an old town set in the backdrop of present day. The town has four farms run by four founding families, and each one has its own special element that helps drive revenue and tourism for the town and families. Something has gone wrong in Hollow’s End though. A blight is taking over the crops, sucking the life right out of them, but it’s more than just the crops. People and animals have begun to go missing, and now they are showing up again, but they are shells of the humans they once were, and they are dangerous.

Wow! This book was a fantastic story filled with surprises and twist after twist! It was fast-paced, and layered one thing on top of another creating this story-web that was impossible to put down!
