Book Review: Gone by Michael Grant

Book Review: Gone by Michael Grant

“Ninth graders with machine guns: its hard to make that a happy story.” I bought Michael Grant’s Gone some time before New Year’s Eve of 2014.

Book Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Good…: The Raven Boys has been on my TBR list practically since it came out. I kept putting off reading it, because I was trying to finish reading the book series I’d already begun. This notion was stupid, I guess, since nowadays all YA books seem to be part of a series. I finally […]
