Review: ‘Take Your Medicine’

I was given this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review! It was pitched as an Alice in Wonderland retelling and I love that story, so I had to check it out.

Review: ‘Truly Devious’

“Look! A riddle! Time for fun! Should we use a rope or gun?”

Are you looking for a murder mystery, YA style, set at a boarding school in the mountains of Vermont set in both present time and throwbacks to an unsolved murder from the 1930’s? Then I have found just the book for you! Truly, Devious.

Movie Review: ‘Every Day’

After hearing they were making David Leviathan’s novel Every Day into a movie, I knew it was finally time to read the book that had been sitting on my shelf for ages before going to see the movie. (You can read my book review over here!) Immediately after finishing the book, I needed to see it that night – I was so excited! I’m no movie critic, but here are a few thoughts I had about the movie – I do discuss differences between the movie and the book, so this will have minor spoilers for both the book and the movie. I bolded and underlined a major spoiler so please skip that if you don’t want to be spoiled!

A wakes up in a different persons body every day – always someone the same age, never the same person twice. A is okay with being a different person every day until they meet Rhiannon, a girl who makes them want for more in life. This movie felt like it moved quickly without a dull moment.

Overall? I liked the book more then the movie. Don’t get me wrong – the movie was enjoyable and if you were a fan of the book I think it’s worth seeing. But it isn’t a movie that I would want to see again – once was enough. (Meanwhile with a movie like Love, Simon (I saw an advanced screening) or even Black Panther, I want to see both of those 230480293 times.)

Review: ‘Every Day’

A wakes up in a different body and in a different life – everyday.

I love the concept of this novel. Everyday this ‘being’ who has named themselves “A” is a different person, but has the same mind. They switch bodies every day, always into someone their age and never too far from where the last body was. They don’t know why or how it happens, it’s just something A has accepted as a way of living.

I will admit the reason I finally picked up this book is because of the movie released on February 23, 2018 with the same name – Every Day. The true bookworm I am, I knew I needed to read the book before seeing the movie. (Movie review coming on Friday!)

Audiobook Review: ‘Bonfire’

This book was as boring as a town called Barrens, Indiana sounds like it would be. I honestly don’t know how or why I finished this book, except so many good reviews made me think something must happen! But NOTHING happened until 90% into the book. This book is supposed to be a mystery or a thriller? Nothing was thrilling until the 90% mark. THEN action happened. And then the book was over.
