I got this book recommendation from BookTok on Tiktok, and I personally believe this is one of the not-as-good recommendations. WAY overhyped. I thought it would be a solid 5/5, but to be very generous, it is a 4/5. The idea of the plot is…

This book was a nice break from my usual reading. The writing was beautiful and I loved the description. The end came as a huge surprise to me which really made the book a lot more interesting for me. However I felt that most of the book…

This book was super enjoyable! It is an easy read, with an interesting story of how one decision can change the course of everything. I was surprised, captivated and heartbroken. I would not classify this as a thriller, more of a mystery…

3/5 for Youth Novel and 1.5/5 for mystery. It's a very entertaining, quick read. Great if you just want a distraction from work. But if you're looking for a thrilling, or remotely complex novel, it isn't. Characters are boring, and it took…

For a Young Fiction book, it was good. The book reads like a girl's diary, which is not my favorite writing style. I would love for the author to make an adult version of this story with deeper character development and side-stories. It…
