Inspired by the summer season, I would like to discuss the profound YA graphic novel This One Summer, written by cousins Mariko and Jillian Tamaki. We are introduced to Rose Wallace and her family as they arrive to Awago Beach … Continue reading
If you have been here to my blog before, you will know that I really enjoyed reading Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park, a love story between two teenagers who both felt like outsiders in their homes and class. Rainbow Rowell … Continue reading
Anybody who follows me on social media knows that I have been losing my mind over E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars. It was a fairly enjoyable read that captivated me from the start; I couldn’t put it down. I wanted … Continue reading
