Asperger’s, Cheating and a Lot of Vapidness: Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny

Another book about white men cheating.  I have no idea how I found out about this book and how I decided that I wanted to read it. It was a mix of it having Asperger's representation in it, and the fact that it explored the relationship between two people, which is always my favorite thing.… Continue reading Asperger’s, Cheating and a Lot of Vapidness: Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny

The Unraveling of a Small Town: Us Against You by Fredrik Backman

"They're adults now. For some girls that isn't something you choose. It's something that gets forced upon you." As you all know by now, Beartown was my favorite book last year (you can read my review HERE). I was and still am completely in love with it.

Love, Tension and Not Much Else: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

I am beyond torn. This book was HUGE last year and it's had my interest ever since. However, I decided to read it because of that cover, since I am weak like that. My friend Janel @ Keeper of Pages was so kind to get this one for me and I decided to read it… Continue reading Love, Tension and Not Much Else: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

Duels, Swords and a Monstrous Horse: Traitor’s Blade by Sebastian de Castell

"The first rule of the sword is - put the pointy end in the other man." I bought this book rather impulsively, without really knowing anything about it. I loved the cover (duh) and I decided to get the book, even though I haven't heard anyone talk about it previously. Turns out - that worked… Continue reading Duels, Swords and a Monstrous Horse: Traitor’s Blade by Sebastian de Castell
