ARC Review | Barely Missing Everything by Matt Mendez

Trigger Warnings: Drug Use, Domestic Violence, Gang Violence, Assualt, Murder, Alcohol use, Gun Violence, Racism, Violence, Police Brutality. I’ve been highly anticipating Barely Missing Everything since the moment it came across my radar back in 2017. When I saw it was finally releasing in 2019, I immediately began searching Edelweiss and Netgalley for an ARC. And finally Netgalley had the ARC but it took forever to get approved and honestly, I gave up waiting for my request to be approved. Then the day came and my request was approved and […]

#ReadYourWorld (MCBD2019) | All the Stars Denied By by Guadalupe Garcia McCall

Content/Trigger Warnings for: Racism and racial slurs, Kidnapping and abduction, Abuse, Violence. I hardly ever read historical fiction. There’s no real reason why just that it is not a genre that I personally find myself picking up. When it came time to pick a book for Multicultural Children’s Book Day, I wanted to read All The Stars Denied. Why? Well for starters, it is really hard to find books with Mexican Americans main characters in them. I also felt like I needed to read this because it felt like I […]

ARC Review | The Tenth Girl by Carrie Aarons

My first impressions of The Tenth Girl were that this cover is gorgeous. Carrie Aarons is the queen of gorgeous covers. I’ve read quite a few of Carrie Aarons novels and know that I can expect something light and quick. I’m just a little worried because Carrie writes more New Adult and this is Young Adult. But I’m excited to see what she does in The Tenth Girl. The Story The premise of The Tenth Girl reminded me slightly of my favorite movie ever She’s All That except this one […]

Release Day Blitz | You’re The One I Don’t Want by Carrie Aarons

First Thoughts before starting You’re The One I Don’t Want: I am really excited to read about Annabelle and Boone’s story. There were a few clues about their story in The Tenth Girl and it left me wanting more. The Story You’re The One I Don’t Want is a companion novel to The Tenth Girl. You definitely don’t need to read The Tenth Girl to read this. The story picks up a couple years after The Tenth Girl ends. Annabelle is in college and about to graduate. She’s also on […]

#MyTBRList Review | Right Text Wrong Number by Natalie Decker

Right Text, Wrong Number was my August #MyTBRList winner. I was kind of hoping this one would win because texting the wrong number and falling in love is kind of one of my favorite tropes. I absolutely loved Text 2 Lovers, which is more NA, but still the trope is the same so anytime a synopsis remotely mentions texting the wrong number and it turning to more…I AM THERE. Needless to say, I had some pretty high expectations for this. Right Text, Wrong Number is the first book in the […]

Blog Tour + Giveaway | Remember That Night by Katrina Marie

Remember That Night is the fourth book in the Taking Chances series. Each one could be read as a standalone but if you want to read this one, I suggest reading Cruel and Beautiful Life to full understand this book. Plus there is some spoilers from the other books so proceed with caution. Darcy and Derrick are the main characters for Remember That Night and the story is told in their point of views. That’s something I personally like because I love getting inside the character’s head and learning their […]

ARC Review | La Frontera by Alfredo Alva

La Frontera is a bilingual children’s book. The story follows Alfredo during the 1980s where he and his father cross illegally into the US. The story is told through Alfredo’s eyes that bring an innocence and naivetés to the story that I personally really appreciated. I appreciated how the story began with why Alfredo and his dad decided to immigrate to the US and it explained the process. The process was anything but easy, they gave money to coyotes and they traveled a rough road along the Rio Grande. It […]
