JANE & CARIN

In a short blurb? We talk books.

Reading GONE GIRL made me feel Psychotic.

The Diviners is a breath of fresh air from the other books in the YA market– TOO MANY DYSTOPIAN/SCI-FI books!– and it absolutely delivers with an awesome female lead, a creepy mystery, and a world that is richly written.

“BRILLIANT and hugely ambitious…
It’s the kind of book that can be LIFE CHANGING.”

Book Review: Easy by Tammara Webber

Easy is a fast enjoyable read and I would recommend it to the twenties audience. Read if you enjoy Young Adult but would like to see more mature concepts in your reading.

“That book is totally a gateway drug”

… Say what? Since when are books considered a gateway drug?

Well, that’s what I would refer to books such as the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey.

Girls Night with Katniss Everdeen, Hermione Granger, Bella Swan, and Buffy Summers.
